The biggest scam perpetrated on the American public is "natural" peanut butter. Peanut butter doesn't occur in nature. Whip that stuff up. Add emulsifiers. Just don't give it to me in a jar that brims with disgusting oil I have to mix in myself.

I never miss having a dog more than when I spill something on the kitchen floor. I didn't use a sponge for years.

Just my periodic reminder that I’m not THAT John Kelly. No matter your politics, it’s always a good idea to practice safe tagging hygiene.

Here's the thing most people are expected to learn about life: It's not all cherry and strawberry Starbursts. Sometimes you get an orange or a lemon. You have to learn to deal with that disappointment. Or just, you know, eat it and not have a hissy fit.

We did it! And by "we," I mean "you." Readers of the donated more than $260,000 to three local charities. It's another reminder of how there's more to "this town" than tawdry politics. Thank you.
