Warning: Mercury retrograde continues through Jan. 18

Warning: Mercury retrograde continues through Jan. 18

We were about to leave a birthday party last week when someone made an announcement to the whole room that meant absolutely nothing to me. “Y’all  know Mercury’s in retrograde, right?” She might as well have said, “Osturinn minn er tölva sem fer á hestbak.” That, as we all know, means, “My cheese is a computer that rides horses” in Icelandic and makes absolutely as much sense to me as “Mercury’s in retrograde.” However, another person gasped and cried, “Oh no!” as if that person had just said “Dráps smástirni mun lenda á jörðinni eftir 20 mínútur,” which in Icelandic, […]

Old Dawgs like me hope these young pups have learned some new tricks for Bama

Photo: UGA and I will have this facial expression all week and until the final seconds of the SEC Championship on Saturday. It’s our cautiously optimistic face. For those of you who are into “thoughts and prayers” as a preferred alternative to actions and solutions, some folks like me could use your thoughts and prayers over the next few days.

No, I can’t handle accountability any more than he can. Unfortunately, I can’t blame everybody else — Democrats, the fake news, the Fed, Rosie O’Donnell — for my failures. If I make a resolution, […]

2018 — The year in PREVIEW

2018 — The year in PREVIEW

For many years now, I’ve published my annual Year in Preview in the print edition of the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer. However, the Ledger-Enquirer’s pages are filled with reports from legitimate journalists about what’s going on in Columbus and around the world — or as President Trump calls it, “Fake News! Sad!” I cannot afford to have my annual Year in Preview — which is not a bunch of predictions and prognostications about the year 2018 but an actual collection of soon-to-be-proven-true facts — associated with “Fake News!” This is too important. I’ve already run these by both Sarah Huckabee Sanders and […]
