Everyone is concerned about government corruption, yet seems oblivious to what’s going on in our funnies. Someone needs to look into possible “pay for play” corruption there.

About a year from now, all sorts of “experts” will write books trying to explain the election of 2016 to us.

turned 62 on Sept. 19, qualifying for premature Social Security. Now that I’m on Easy Street, I plan to travel even more, maybe going to Billings every couple months instead of once a year. Before pets, I spent many a Billings weekend playing poker and prowling nightclubs.

A little over 10 years ago, this space featured a column under the title, “The royal presidency.”

There is an election coming up.

I haven’t mentioned this election in this space since the middle of July, so some of you may have wondered if I had forgotten about Hillary and The Donald. Some of you may actually have been celebrating that omission, either because you don’t want to think about the election or because you can guess what I might say and don’t want to hear it.

Every now and then, unexpressed sentiments build up and I need a non-specific-subject column to clear the blockage. Like a good suppository, it relieves and frees me up to digest more timely information.

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.)
