News reports claim American stores are experiencing a spike in thefts of Tide laundry detergent. Apparently the high retail value of Tide, $10 to $20 a bottle, and the lack of a serial number, make it an attractive target for thieves to steal and resell. I’m pretty sure the story has been blown out of […]

Police in Houston arrested one of its own after a cop was repeatedly filmed stealing food and drinks from the break room refrigerator.

I saw this picture of Hillary Clinton but didn’t immediately see any headline attached.  What is she doing?  Who or what is she looking at?  Is she about to speak or has she just spoken?  Is she possibly thinking about me and those love letters I wrote her? I decided not to look for the […]
