Lights on HilltopsA visit to the White House homepage prompted two thoughts. First was renewed admiration for the nameless team working tirelessly to keep up with reporting on the good things happening in our country under the leadership of President Trump.

Nice news from the IRS yesterday. About two months ago we received a letter about our 2017 taxes. Dear Mr. and Mrs E, we think you owe us about $7,000.

Dear Ricochetti, I gave a sermon this morning in which I mentioned Ricochet and my Adventures in Conservatism. Afterward, as people filed out, several mentioned how important and interesting my reports from outside our echo chamber have been for them, and their hopes that I would keep it up. (I will.) More

It’s only Monday and the news is already grim. So kind of the NLRB to kneecap the economy just days after China’s polar bear plunge! ISIS pillages on, so our President finally steps away from his busy golf schedule to… rename a mountain. Hillary Clinton snickers as the reality of her scandals fights a losing […]
