People are saying . . .

And the winner is. . .   Taylor Swift, who won for her Album of the Year, 1989, at the Grammys Monday night, which featured outstanding performances by Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, and Adele.

The death of conservative icon, Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia sets up a battle between Dems and Reps over his successor. At stake in the outcome are women’s rights to abortions, big bizness’s ability to spend unlimited amounts of $$$ on political campaigns, and individuals’ rights to arm bears (or is it the other way around?).

Is Ted Cruz a liar? Is Donald Trump nuts? Is Jeb! a loser? These are just some of the things Reps are saying about each other. Meanwhile Bernie and Hillary are courting African American voters who make up a large part of the Dem’s base.

A Warp in the Space-Time Continuum? It’s real. Long a staple of science fiction, scientists have detected gravitational waves from the collision of two black holes over a billion years ago. Mr. Spock was right. If you could time travel, where/when would you go?

Just saying. . . This crazy weather is not normal. It is an effect of global climate change, which scientists tells us is caused by human activity. Don’t let anyone tell you different.
