Something rather cool is brewing over at Good Times.
Sometime back — I’m too lazy to search the archives — I wrote about some of the wonderful phone messages I’ve received since the 2016 presidential election. While some of the content is not suitable for publication in our paper, I had suggested anyone who wanted to could stop by the paper an…
Set aside political differences for now, please. This is not about politics; it’s about a person, but one who happens to have had a long political ride — for now, at least — on Tuesday.
