Those are whom I choose to vilify.

It is ironic the congenital conservative, poor Johnny One Note, Bob Summers, would miss that grammar error. After all, he is an expert on everything and has one opinion that serves him alone so well.

As a Druid, my deep devotion to trees prevents the federal government from harvesting lumber from federal lands. My religious liberty is "burdened" by the felling of trees.

The New Yorker had an article by Roger Angell about 15 years ago that analyzed golf growth. Even with the popularity of Tiger and Phil, the "sweet spot" for the golfing market was over 45, white, male, and earning $50,000+. Based upon census projections, that market is diminishing. The article went on to calculate two economic facts made growth in golf difficult: 1) rising cost of land and 2) a large up front capitalization expense for new equipment. Manufacturers could not recover their development costs in a diminishing market before the "next, new, and better piece of equipment" came along. Nike estimated its new Tiger golf balls would amortize out in 2013, if Tiger would win more majors than Jack. Sadly that did not occur.

Thought for Chad to explore: Block's purchase of the Orchards may have been to have a loss leader for tax purposes to offset income in other activities.

Add one element, Inclement weather - rain, snow, or sleet, and folks with rain gear, umbrellas, tarps and you have a perfect storm.

Can I get mine with a 6 point star? Then I can write the word "Kristallnacht" across my license with a Sharpie.

Ron Thornburgh, Kobach's predecessor, developed a web site that became the standard for other Secretaries of State. When he entered office, Kobach said he would be making major improvements to the web site. Other than monetizing electronic filing, we are still waiting for Kobach's improvements. It is not sexy to the base to do IT, but IT improvements are the requirements of the job.

On Editorial: Kobach is not doing his job

As Secretary of State, this chief election officer will oversee his next race. Gives you all sorts of warm feelings.
Frank Morgan is his hero.

Trail?? Like the one out of this dilemma? Or would you suggest trail by fire?
