Politics is more about the special pleading of selfish interests than anything else. (That’s another reason that gridlock in the Swamp is not always a bad thing.) All one has to do is follow the money. The U.S. has the best politicians money can buy, most of whom were born on third base and thought they hit a triple.

    For all his accomplishments, Gale Sayers does not put himself first. Certainly not before God. And not before his family and friends. In other words, “In humility, value others above yourselves.” – Philippians 2:3. That’s good advice. And we could use a few more Gale Sayerses and Tim Browns in today’s National Football League.

    Believe it or not, it’s that time of year again, folks. Back by popular demand is the obligatory New Year’s Predictions column. And no ILI (Influenza-Like Illness) is going to stand in my way, either. Besides, as the genuine ol’ ball coach Lou Holtz likes to say: “Don’t talk about your problems. Ten percent of the people don’t care, and the other 90 percent are glad you got ’em.”

    For anyone born in Baltimore, this “pattern of public service” brings to mind former Vice President Spiro T. Agnew. Good ol’ Theodore, as governor of Maryland, realized that Cash is King. Granted, he was forced to resign as Nixon’s VP because of corruption charges that stemmed from his time as governor. Still, one ought to expect one’s potentially corrupt public officials to take some reasonable measures to avoid getting caught. Cash is good. Checks are not.

    If I had to choose between fire and the internet, I’d choose fire. (Yes, I know. Feel free to insert your “get used to the heat” jokes any time.) As Grog, the first caveman, realized when he accidentally dropped a big rock onto a smaller rock at just the proper angle, thereby sending a small spark that ignited his woolly mammoth rug, “Fire Good.”

    For the second time in three decades, I managed to lock myself out of the house. But neither that fact or the Saturday afternoon snow could put a damper on my otherwise productive day.

    Perhaps Willie Nelson’s most popular Christmas song was the one he wrote about Frankie Brierton, a disabled street vendor who sold “pretty paper, pretty ribbons” for pennies while crawling along a downtown Fort Worth, Texas sidewalk.

    “The good news is that obamacareplans.com summarizes all the key info for you, making it easy to compare your options and decide. Whether you prefer to lower your monthly premiums with a bronze or silver plan, or need to lower your out-of-pocket cost with a gold or platinum plan – we have you covered.” To that statement, two words come to mind. The first one is “bull.” I’ll bet you can figure it out, especially if you are among the millions of middle-income workers who are not receiving taxpayer-funded medical coverage – not even an aluminum plan.

    School board members are to be commended for putting an end to a political boondoggle – rife with potential conflicts of interests as it was. Sadly, for the board’s appropriate – and thoughtful – action, they were – like many others – insulted by the Republican mayor of Hillsboro – and for the record, the insult was made in his official capacity as mayor. Oh, well, you can lead a jackass to water, but it's still a jackass.

    In the next seven weeks, Hillsboro City Council has a chance to do the right thing by postponing crucial votes on the mayor’s personal agenda until January. The question is: Do you have the intestinal fortitude to do what’s right or would you prefer to aid and abet the likes of Hastings and Lambert? (One indicted – subsequently acquitted, the other convicted.) If the latter, please explain yourselves and put it on the record.
