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?

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for April.

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.
