"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

So … How Was Your Day?

Mrs. Other McCain locked her keys in the car. It’s raining. You should hit the tip jar. Not like that’s going to get the keys out of the car (or stop the rain) but it will help cheer up my wife. Meanwhile, in other major breaking news developments . . . A 75-year-old math teacher is charged […]
