At first pass, this commercial brings me back to my pre-teen years and my pre-teen friends. Hmmm, we might think. How about we fill the old box with something from the neighbor’s cow pasture? Let them analyze that scat. Or maybe one of the family dogs had too many leftovers. No good can come from that. Just pay postage and handling. And don’t forget to tip your UPS driver – with a can of Lysol. By the way, my last health-care provider was John Fuller. I trusted him more than anyone.

    In October 2018, I offered this: If I were the president of council, I’d have a difficult time showing up for the monthly circus. There are probably a million good reasons for Lee Koogler to resign as council president. That’s totally understandable given the actions of some in city government. But with that said, I hope Lee continues as council president and I thank him for his integrity and public service. Whether city voters – and taxpayers – realize it or not, Lee Koogler was one of the few remaining voices of reason in city government.

    The March 6 topic was about the Electoral College. (Fortunately, there was little debate regarding its necessity.) Calls to Crosstalk came in from around the nation. There was a call from Washington, a call from Minnesota, a call from Pensacola, Fla., and then a call from a small town in Ohio which seemed to confuse the host. Paraphrasing from memory, the host said, “Next, we have Blanche from ‘Brainbridge,’ Ohio.”

    Speaking of old hat Democrats, how about California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who told a group of school-age children and their “adult” chaperones that AOC’s Green New Deal was a Patina Pipe Dream. The unsuspecting children were obvious pawn stars in a political game. But it was – ahem – refreshing to hear Feinstein tell it like it is. She just became my favorite Democrat in the U.S. Senate. Sorry, Joe Manchin.

    For the Republicans who control Ohio state government from the governor’s office to the Senate to the House to the auditor to the AG to the SOS to the treasurer (etc., etc.) the really bad optics here is DeWine’s timing with this proposed 64-percent increase. DeWine’s Republican colleagues in the House and Senate just voted themselves – and many of their friends in government across Ohio’s 88 counties – a nice little pay raise after the November 2018 election. None of them, to my knowledge, campaigned on a platform of “Vote for me, and I’ll give myself a raise, courtesy of your hard-earned tax dollars.” However, that is exactly what they did.

    The Saturday USPS mail included an interesting postcard from Rob Anfinson of SurfNewMedia.com with an equally interesting offer to change our internet web host from a Kokomo, Ind. company to a Naples, Fla. company. Given that I received this in the dead of winter in Ohio, I quickly thought less of Kokomo and more of Naples. Maybe Rob would invite the staff down to the sunny Florida Gulf Coast to have a look-see at SurfNewMedia.com.

    Given today’s polar vortex political climate, this column is by no means intended to influence, change, alter, support, bolster or conflict with anyone else’s predetermined opinion on this – or any other – topic. In fact, if most of us are honest, personal opinions are often formed early and rarely change, regardless of the facts. It used to be said that we are entitled to our own opinions, but not to our own facts. Welcome to 2019.

    If Bubba can come up with 20 varieties of shrimp, I’d like to know how many private-sector working people and private business owners can come up with at least 20 varieties of taxes. While taxes will never be the fruit of the sea, you can only imagine how many ways ’til Sunday you really are being taxed.

    Is it just me, or has the tambourine-pounding, so-called Vietnam veteran (who, by many accounts, wasn’t in Vietnam) just about used up his 15 minutes of fame?

    I'm glad the Reds convinced Marty to endure his "farewell tour" for the sake of Reds fans. We need that. We need to see the "We Love You, Marty" banners hanging in Great American Ball Park this summer. We need to know that we must cherish each Reds broadcast this season. We need to listen just a little closer. And we need to be thankful. Not every Major League city has a Marty Brennaman. Not even close. We have been spoiled. And we have been blessed. Thanks for 46 years, Marty. I wish I could add "and here's to many more."
