It isn’t quite fall yet, but there are signs.

Many of you may not realize this, and you may find it hard to believe, but six years ago I was gearing up to be a high school teacher. It turns out that after holding parent-teacher conferences, I’d rather deal with bucking broncs and ornery grizzlies than duke it out with badgering or apathetic parents. (The kids were fine; their parents were another story entirely.)

People lie a lot, but some are better at it than others.

I’d like to voice a few opinions about sports, but in no way should that Brett Favre-looking sports reporter, Dan Hoehne, feel threatened. Dan obviously knows his stuff, and I too had Major League baseball dreams since age 9. In fact, I wore a No. 9 T-shirt, mimicking my Pittsburgh Pirate hero, Bill Mazeroski.

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.
