Last week in New York a mad driver deliberately ploughed into a … Read More

Dateline Dayton —  Here is a partial list of my pet peeves: Drivers Don’t look when backing up – worst at the Post Office and grocery. Don’t stop when they see someone is backing out of a parking spot. Going at a slow speed in the fast lane. Sitting at a four-way stop. Waiting for the light to change? Don’t … Read More

Mr. Elias

For the last seven years, most of the 14 Republicans representing parts of California in Congress railed against Obamacare, high corporate taxes and illegal immigration. But that was mere chatter.

For sure, vultures are waiting in the wings for Ms. … Read More
