Cut the pope some slack. Unlike John McCain, the pope knows when it’s time to retire.

It’s a shame that there are more people in the U.S. on food stamps than the entire population of Spain.

There was so much gas and hot air generated during the State of the Union address. No wonder most of those who attended had to stand up so many times during that address.

Raise your hands if you are tired of President Obama promising the moon and then sitting on his hands and doing nothing. Same song, second verse, lies, lies, lies.

Santa is hanging from a roof at Tyler and 17th Street. Would somebody please release him so he can go back to the North Pole?

Soup and crackers can be very filling.
