|What's Age Got To Do With It?
I'm not a violent man. Never was. I know that, as I get older, I'm supposed to be more temperamental. Maybe I am. Perhaps I am quicker to anger. Old codger stuff. Is it just a male thing? Today, I ...

|A Facebook Face-Off?
I don't think there's a person in the world that doesn't know a big election has been brewing in the United States. Perhaps there's a handful who don't know, but that's not my point. What we have is ...
