Eyes on the Prize

Single payer vs. private insurance is a false choice. Every other developed nation has universal coverage and does it for approximately half the cost with as good or better results as the U.S. And every one of them have some form of private insurance available. Canada has “single payer,” and…

Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day, Dads! Of course, I like to think every day is Father’s Day! That’s because, even though over 70% of women with children under 18 work outside the home, they still do most of the work inside the home, including parenting. We dads mainly get the better of the…

In the Heat of the Moment

ANNCR. V.O.:  Earlier today former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders testified before the House Special Committee on Impeachment.  Ms. Sanders was questioned by Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler of New York about various statements she has made to the media that she later acknowledged were not true.

Jewish Family Services of St. Paul

This past weekend, I gave a speech to benefit Jewish Family Services of St. Paul.  I told the crowd that I was very happy to support Jewish Family Services of St. Paul, because, frankly, the people over at Jewish Family Services of Minneapolis are a bunch of schmucks. They have…

I was in Los Angeles recently and my old pal Kevin Nealon suggested I take a hike. I took offense, told Kevin that he should take a hike, and stormed off – ending our thirty-three-year friendship. Fortunately, Dana Carvey called me later and explained Kevin was asking me to be his guest on…

Pull the Trigger

Edited May 22, 2019 at 6:45 EDT From the beginning, a lot of people around Donald Trump have said that he resented the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election because it would undermine the legitimacy of his election. Well, yeah! We’ll never know for sure. But there’s a very…

Mrs. Molin

This is about my fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Molin. I try to share this every National Teachers Day but I am choosing to post today on the last day of Teacher Appreciation Week because, let’s be honest, teachers like Mrs. Molin should be thanked all week! Heck, all month! When…
