Fair enough. Where did it go off the rails?

Tariffs are pertinent to the availability of cool rides. If the country got a CEO instead of a President, does that take [commenting on] his personality into a different realm?

Can we talk about Scott Adams new book, Loser Think?

Based on my understanding of "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," everything went wrong when Man's distant ancestor first swam ashore.

Is "Loser, Inc." on-topic?

Many believe that it was when we came down from the trees.

The problem is that, on the whole, it's not the green pieces of paper that are unhappy.

I, for one, still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

I don't like strapping a timepiece to my body. Time just is.

For sure, back problems started when we rose up onto our rear appendages. (Also, big b*tts, so there's that)

Jokey politics, "Hitchhiker's Guide," and now booties...

I always forget to wear a watch to work. I dislike checking my phone at work.
