Writing editorials every third edition of the Tribune is tough — not because I don’t have strong opinions, but because the things I am passionate about are of no consequence to anyone.

Last week I decided it might be a good time to drop out for a few days. So I did.

Some people assume because I have a certain flair for writing and a sometimes-bizarre, unconventional translation of everyday events, I must be highly intelligent. Many others are convinced I’m “special” in an entirely different kind of way, since I possess the inherited Blough forgetful gene and mechanical skills of a penguin. I’m sure Norm and Vickie Nichols fall securely into that latter category.

One of those inspirational videos popped up on my Facebook feed recently — you know the kind, with white text on a black background above and below the video declaring it to be life-changing as someone urges viewers to do everything they can to achieve their dreams.

In case you missed it, the big news in recent weeks was the death of the Republican Party, and Donald Trump’s supporters are responsible.

I often get asked about what I do to stay in shape despite having a pretty sedentary job, and the response varies from “that’s insane” to “I can definitely do that.”

Anyone who knows me well may wonder why I’m writing a column for a Health and Fitness edition.

I never offer advice on working out or eating well — because if I did, it would be hypocritical.

Have you ever had one of those close friends from way back who you suddenly realize shares none of your morals? One day it dawns on you, if he wasn’t such a good friend, you wouldn’t even like the guy!

AMEND CORNER: Sex and the politician

Sex has caused problems for us humans ever since we decided to be fruitful and multiply.

I often hear complaints about people moving to America and not learning to speak English. While it would be nice if all Americans spoke the same language, that’s a task that is easier said than done — have you ever thought about just how insane the English language is?
