Clint Eastwood is HOW old?

So today CNN had a bit about Clint Eastwood talking-tough and badass.    Of course he would like The Donald.      Isn’t he the gun-guy of the “cold-dead-hands” comment?

There is a paradox which has haunted me for months. Who are some of the most independent, and intelligent women in the  world?     Right–the female news media reporters!   Strong, opinionated, educated, well-informed, knowledgeable … Continue reading Dress Code?

How Stupid Can We Be? commentary on common sense

uh…what a loaded question is that!
