Ah, the thought of Thanksgiving. After the insane year that we will forever remember as “2020”, many of us are already thinking about the family gathering to celebrate the blessings we have had. Yes, even in the face of this insidious Chinese Communist disease, babies were born, people accomplished things and we all faced adversity […]

Who you gonna call? Law enforcement has seen some pretty challenging times over the course of my lifetime. While the fifties were relatively quiet, the sixties set in motion a sea change in how the police were viewed that has resulted in the current crisis.

The countdown to the 2020 election continues. I received a lot of feedback (mostly positive) about yesterday’s post. I imagine there will be more today. It’s okay.
