CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. Lyle Carroll is the starting left fielder for the Cape Girardeau River Rats, a AA affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, but opponents’ scouting reports paint a pessimistic picture of his chances of reaching the big leagues. “Can’t hit curve ball,” says one in the telegraphic style favored by monosyllabic baseball lifers. “Weak arm–we can run on him,” says another.…Continue

Long Lost Engagement Ring Turns Up Wrapped Around Carrot: An Alberta woman found her 84-year-old mother-in-law’s lost engagement ring - lost 13 years ago while pulling weeds in her yard - wrapped around one of the carrots she pulled from her mother-in-law’s backyard garden.

The Alt Left attacked "fine people" without a permit. ~ Donald Trump
Trump said he was waiting to find out all of the facts; like David Duke was at the rally.
Duke seemed to be one of the "fine people" in Trump's…Continue

The kids are getting older–they’re in high school now–and with summer jobs and college campus visits, every year it’s harder to squeeze in the special family time of aggravation and bickering we used to experience during summer vacations.
“We need to get away and just do it,” my wife said. “Someplace far, like the west coast.”…Continue
Warsaw Ghetto fighters...they have guns...shooting at people...blame on both sides!
Trump Calls Out Alt-Left for Charlottesville Violence: In perhaps his most bizarre press conference yet, President Donald Trump once again refused to forcefully denounce white supremacist protesters, instead basically laying blame for the Charlottesville violence on what he described as the “alt-left,” and then took some time to also promote his Virginia winery. Wow, that was quick. Donald must've taken a nice lunch meeting with Steve Bannon. So if I…Continue
"I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.

It seems that a much anticipated confrontation between groups opposed to the elimination of the General Robert E. Lee statue and those advocating removal of that famous Civil War commander were poised to happen in Charlottesville. Once again, an opportunity for a massive…Continue
marketing at it's worst - making the lowest of the low palatable.
The bus came by to pick the residents up early, around seven, so they could make the half hour drive to the State Fair and get them down to the carnival before it got too hot. They would all want to go down to the midway, where the calliope music and the rides got them excited; they were all just children, Sue Ellen thought, and she wanted them to get their fill of it before the sun was too high in the sky.…Continue
Can you name any nation, besides ours…ANY NATION in history…ANY… that has continually coddled the memory of a 150 year-old …Continue
Fleas in Arizona Test Positive for Bubonic Plague: Fleas in two Arizona counties have tested positive for carrying bubonic plague, an infectious disease that took the lives of millions of people in the Middle Ages.
