Lies don't die: Must be myth-taken

posted: 08/26/2015 4:11 a.m. Discuss

As 2016 (and its attendant nightmare of primary and general elections) nears, those of us who value veracity find ourselves in a bit of a pickle ... and not even the crisp, tasty sort.

That's just silly!

No part of life is exempt from silliness, and a lot of times that's a good thing. Monty Python might not have existed if not for silliness. There'd certainly be no need for channels like Cartoon Network and Comedy Central in a world without silliness.

Trump card played

Can anyone honestly say they're surprised by the most recent Donald Trump fallout?

Crank up the hate

An uncivil war

Hot weather tends to make me a cranky, especially when an 18-pound mass of fur and muscle decides to share the love ... and sweat.

Reading into hate

Just a word of health advice to those of you with high blood pressure: If you hate-read, hate-listen or hate-watch, it might be a good idea to stop, or at least taper off. It’ll only result in higher blood pressure for all of us.

Hyper hyperbole

What hasn't happened in the last couple of weeks? Oh yeah, the world didn't end ... though to hear some tell it, the end is nigh.

Ask questions first
