Drills, then and now

Back in the ‘50s we had many “duck and cover” drills. Those exercises were predicated on an external threat from a foreign enemy. Thank God we never had to put those drills to real use.

Children are dying because Congress is afraid of the NRA. Period.

Tone deafness on steroids

Sometimes you just have to gag.

From the brief notice in today's newspaper, there's this gem (emphasis added) :

The open house will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Elks Club and the 116th anniversary of Greeley's lodge, 3061 29th St. All residents are welcome, and the club will raffle off a Glock 15 handgun and donate the proceeds to its kids' foundation.
