I was going to write about the abysmal voter turnout in the 2012 primaries and urge everyone to go vote today but there’s not much more to say.

The other day, I learned a bit of Wyoming history I had never heard of before.

I have unexpectedly come to an impasse with one of my most hated rivals. Finally I found a reason to love spellcheck. My tiny, Pantech phone didn’t have it, but did have a feature known as “Call Grating.” It would constantly dial or text people without my knowledge and certainly without my consent.

Normally I avoid politics like the plague. Tempers flare up, people argue and it just makes a great big mess when all either side of the conversation wants is for America to be the best that it can be.

Recently, I’ve been wondering if the universe is out of whack.

It’s pretty common to get asked how journalists come up with stories and the truth is that we don’t — you guys come up with them and we just write them down.

We’re at the peak of Cowboy Christmas, that magical time of the year when rodeos are plentiful, prize money is high and the arenas are packed — and many of those fans may be wondering how to get into the sport of rodeo.

Ben, my significant other, was watching a car show on TV and the dogs were outside doing their business before getting ready for bed. We heard our dogs, Clyde and Lucy, bark at a car that hit the rumble strips on the highway that runs in front of our house. 

After a mass killing in Florida, Congress remains mired in a bitter bipartisan standstill, despite overwhelming support by everyday Americans to toughen gun laws.
