Partly Cloudy


Powell, WY

Partly Cloudy

Humidity: 72%

Wind: 4 mph


My house is littered with unread newspapers of every ilk and my DVR library 98 percent full for the same reason it’s foolhardy not to read every section of your favorite newspaper: You’ll never know what priceless gem you have denied your brain forever.

The dust hadn’t settled from the recent terrorist attack in Belgium before the fear mongering went into high gear in America.

I almost accidentally threw away my college degree while spring-cleaning last weekend. I’m a bit of a minimalist, so every spring I toss out or donate anything I haven’t used in the last year with the exception of books and tools of course.

It sounds ridiculous to say so, given the weather in recent weeks, but spring officially began on March 20.

We’ve all heard the expression, “Well, tell me something I don’t know!” That’s exactly what I was thinking tonight while watching a news report announcing daylight saving time increases incidents of automobile accidents, heart attacks and strokes. That’s almost a no-brainer.

It isn’t often that I am cheered by something that Republicans do, but last week was an exception, and even then, my cheer definitely was limited.

There are no guarantees with oil and gas; it’s up and down and that’s a fact of life in Wyoming — just like how the wind always blows out here.

It’s amazing how a negative encounter with a new neighbor, a long romance drought, and the Fox News Channel left on overnight can combine into one hell of a weird dream. I would prefer Donald Trump stay the heck out of my nocturnal hookups, but we don’t control such things. The subconscious writes the script.

As per a recent meeting with the Park County Commissioners discussing raising the county’s sales tax from 4 to 5 percent, my thoughts might not be worth a plug nickel, but I’ll include my 2 cents worth anyway. Make that 1 cent.

AMEND CORNER: A few odds and ends

Sometimes life makes a columnist’s life easy by handing him something big to write about.

This week has not been one of those times.
