I just want to wish Margarita a happy 104th birthday on the 27th. I hope you have many more. You are a dear, sweet lady.

The National Rifle Association claims guns make us safer. So why isn’t America the safest place on Earth?

Price of gas, up or down, is win-win for me. Gas prices up = stock market up. Gas prices down = stock market down. Either way is good for me. I’m in the stock market, and I drive a hybrid car.

I thought Kate Smith was famous for singing “God Bless America,” (not “The Star-Spangled Banner”).

I know I am getting old because every time I see pictures in the paper of new police officers, they look like kids to me.

Concerning sexual predators: Think about how many times they offend before being caught. This is a sickness, not something that is cured with a short prison sentence.

Kudos to Gov. Mike Pence on his directive to have an ethics officer in every state agency. This is long overdue.

Now they are saying that Subway’s foot-long sub doesn’t measure up. Does anything? Have you opened a bag of chips lately?

I don’t condone what Officer Ed Kabella did. Yes, it was

do things illegally. They put their lives on the line every day for us.
