We need to relearn the art of romance

I still have no idea why Laura Lindsey liked me, but she did.
It happened during my sixth-grade year in the spring of 1974, when she transferred to our school.
Laura had grace and style and was instantly embraced by the popular girls.
She was out of my league, but I pursued her nonetheless.
Trying to impress her one day while playing “keep-away” during recess, I grabbed the ball and ran near her.
I didn’t know it then, but thousands of years of DNA were at work — the same primitive energies that caused cavemen to club each other as cavewomen looked on.

National military parade needed

The president has suggested that the nation establish a yearly military parade to honor the service and the sacrifice of the current military and our veterans. He spoke of it as “a unifying moment for the country.” Almost immediately, the Trump naysayers jumped all over the idea as noting more than “pandering patriotism.” “Tanks, but no tanks,” was the opinion of the Washington Post.

Memo to Dan Rather: Shut up about memos

Old liberal media liars never fade away. They just rage, rage against the dying of their dinosaur industry’s light.
I’m looking at you, Dan Rather.
After years of trashing alternative media, which exposed the veteran CBS News reporter’s monumental Memogate fraud in 2004, Rather has joined the ranks of pajama-clad online broadcasters. The 86-year-old grandfather of fake news now uses Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to stoke the left’s anti-Trump resistance -- all while clinging bitterly to the vestiges of his defunct “legendary” newsman persona.

I’m still cheering for Trump

Donald Trump sure hit it out of the park Tuesday night.
Like millions of other people in America who tuned in to the president’s first State of the Union Address, I’m still cheering.
I wasn’t in Washington, in Soviet California, or anywhere else in Trump’s America.
I was actually on a cruise ship with my wife on the other side of the world in the Tasman Sea between New Zealand and Australia.

Trump the unifier? Don’t buy it

President Donald Trump, who’s never been shy about hammering his rivals and skewering his opponents, used his first State of the Union speech Tuesday night to call for unity as the nation attacks some of its biggest challenges.
In a nearly 90-minute prime-time speech that saw the president’s Republican allies rise to their feet while Democrats sat stone-faced, Trump reiterated his call for an immigration reform plan that puts a premium on border security even as it provides an eventual path to citizenship for nearly 2 million undocumented immigrants.
