So, did you hit the Black Friday sales Friday morning?
That’s an emphatic “No!” for me. You’d have to just about give away stuff for free to lure me out on Black Friday. No thanks. Too peoplely!
A story I ran across a couple of weeks ago provides an opportunity to make fun of all kinds of people, from a silver thief, to a silver buyer, to a really bad writer who somehow managed to land a job writing web stories for a local TV station.
Have you heard the latest news on the fake debt-ceiling fight?
The Senate has approved a measure to kick the can down the road a couple of months. So, the “fight” will continue!
The $480 billion increase raises the debt limit to $28.9 trillion, but that’s only going to last until Dec. 3. That means we have time for more political theater. Yippee!
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could just talk and your words would alter reality?
It would elevate you to superhero status — or super-villain depending on your propensity to use your power for good or evil.

When I walk the beach, I look for sharks’ teeth. Over the years, I’ve developed a pretty good eye for them. In fact, I’ve filled an entire lamp with sharks’ teeth.
Not too long ago, I was walking the beach with my son and there were no sharks’ teeth to be found. Frustrated, I told Brendan that I was going to change my strategy. Instead of looking for sharks’ teeth, I’m going to look for gold coins.
Labor day is a weird holiday. We celebrate working people by — not working.
If labor is so great, shouldn’t we celebrate by doing more of it?
I have some sobering news for you.
No, no, not just the politicians you don’t like. I mean pretty much all of them – with a few rare exceptions. It’s like part of the political DNA.
I learned a new term this week – crypto gangster.
I have to confess — it sounds kind of cool.
“What do you do, Maharrey?”
“I’m a crypto gangster. So, don’t mess with me.”
Have you been watching the Olympics? I’ve always loved the Olympic Games. There’s always so much drama as the best athletes in the world compete for gold.
But did you know they are mostly competing for silver?
True story. There is very little gold in an Olympic gold medal.
