Election Night 2018 Notebook

Time to hunker down. Watched the results coming in at the Casa de Beavergoat. Made some notes and some cocktails. Tuesday, 6 November 2018 I missed watching Chris Mathews act like a lunatic. Voting for medical marijuana in state elections is ridiculous. It should be legal throughout the United States. Beto O’Rourke is a really … Continue reading

Trump holds children has hostages in political battle over immigration. Continue reading

It’s Going to Be Okay: Election 2016

There’ only one thing for certain after today’s election. We’re going to be okay. The world is not going to end on Wednesday even if my hangover has something different to say. There won’t be any runs on the banks or long lines outside gas stations. There’ll still be food on the shelves at supermarkets, … Continue reading

It Takes a Politician

As of today, we’re 21 days out from the 2016 presidential election. Three weeks and we’ll find out if Secretary Clinton wins big or if business mogul Trump take the Oval Office. I’m understand because Trump is slightly divisive there could be some real implications for control of both the House of Representatives and the … Continue reading

Go Free Park Yourself

I remember a simpler time in Salt Lake. A time when a fella would have to buy a temporary membership at a bar to get a drink, took in a game at the Delta Center and purchase every household object under the sun at Fred Meyer. A time before City Creek, TRAX, decent pizza and … Continue reading

The Endorsement

Stonewash was my only option. I was living on 100 South in the Ellis Building, in the middle of a nasty and public break-up and without a car. There wasn’t a laundry machine in the apartment complex and I needed a place to wash my clothes. Hauling a month of dirty laundry in a duffle … Continue reading

Punch A Shark

Since the Utah Democrats have proven to be as tough as water balloons, I have surrendered any hope of having any interest in politics. Tip O’Neill said, “All politics are local,” and Utah’s locals are nuts. Not so much crazed but indifferent and boring. It’s like watching powder puff except without the hard hits. Utah … Continue reading

Running Is Gay

It was too early to be up—much less going for a run. We were at the mouth of Memory Grove Saturday morning standing in line getting our race bibs. I think I might have slept 12 hours over the last four days. I was starting to feel like a character in The Machinist. Erin asked … Continue reading

Same-Sex Marriage and YOU!

California gay marriage ban is ruled unconstitutional on Tuesday. The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that a lower court was correct in upholding the voter passed Proposition 8 was a civil rights infraction against gay and lesbians wishing to marry. In a word, it means voters were wrong in banning gay marriage … Continue reading

Now On To New Hampshire

“I reserve the right to tell the truth.” That was Newt Gingrich’s final thought on Tuesday as he took fourth place in the Iowa Caucuses. He was defending his choice not to run attack ads against the front-running Mitt Romney. He told his supporters that he would not attack his fellow Republicans but he maintained … Continue reading
