A dog’s mark

When you make it your business to write about politics, as I typically do in this space, it’s easy to lose sight of the plain fact that for many, the daily headlines have no bite. It’s all just a bunch of hullabaloo. Other subjects get people’s blood pressure up. Let’s take an example: pit bulls.

Coming up lemons

Can we talk a moment, Trump voters? I promise to keep this amicable. Or try, at least.

Venturing afield

And on the final week of the first month in office, the Lord said, “Give it a rest.” And so we will. Well, not really. But at least you won’t be reading much about you-know-who in this week’s installment. Let’s see what other topics are banging on the door:

Beat a retreat

It’s perfectly fine for the School Board to go meet in a quiet room where members can share a pot of coffee, relax, engage in conversation about the big issues of the day and do whatever else local officials do whenever they hold retreat-style meetings. You know what’s not okay? Thinking you can do all these things with no one around to watch.

A pall over the lake

It’s Lakefest Week in Clarksville: Time for music, fireworks, fun and a fresh reminder to be careful out there after two grim incidents in recent days on the lake.

Masters of disaster

Writing this week in The Washington Post, conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt has a warning for Republicans who may go wobbly on Obamacare repeal-and-replace: “If the GOP defaults on its core promise, it is doomed as a party to minority status, probably as early as 2018 and certainly in 2020 …. It will forfeit every other Republican goal because failing to deliver on the central promise of eight years of debates and campaigns will shatter the credibility every Republican, not just those who block the bill. The party as a whole will be gravely wounded, perhaps beyond healing for a generation or more.”
