What dif­fer­ence does the color of the pres­i­dent’s suit make? I think he looked quiet nice. There are more im­por­tant things to worry about than what color his suit is.

Mo­tor­cy­clists are some of the worst for fol­low­ing the rules of the road. One was in front of me on U.S. 51 in Ho­bart. He ran a red light just to pull over past the light to text on his phone. I’ve seen them weav­ing past other ve­hi­cles reck­lessly, rac­ing, do­ing wheel­ies, tail­gat­ing ... and we’re sup­posed to watch out for them?

Flu­o­ride has ev­ery­thing to do with the poi­son con­trol warn­ing on tooth­paste. What mo­tive would a for­mer Quickly poster have for spread­ing mis­in­for­ma­tion deny­ing this?

A week ago all news me­dia out­lets told us how cheap gas was and that the prices was ex­pected to go down even more. Then all of a sud­den we have a prob­lem at a lo­cal re­fin­ery and, alas, gas price go­ing up. Did I men­tion it’s a hol­i­day week­end? Hmm ...
