As a lifelong resident of the great potty-obsessed state of North Carolina, let me just say “Thank You!” to my Governor, Pat McCrory, and the wise leadership in the General Assembly for the passage of House Bill 2, which, among other things, ensures that I, and my daughter, will never be accosted by a rapist pretending to be a transgendered woman while we’re doing our business and freshening our makeup. Saints be praised.
Will someone please explain the “tiny house” craze to me? Everytime I see an article or a TV show about these “little dynamos” I have to wonder if their passionate fans have never heard of a mobile home.
Since some of the Republican candidates seem to be having trouble with behaving decently and civilly to one another during the debates, why not force Trump, Cruz, Rubio and whoever’s still standing by the time you read this, to respond to every question posed by the moderator with one of Facebook’s new “graphicons”?

You have to wonder about the Hollywood masterminds who decided to open any movie on the same weekend as “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (and then, apparently, kills Alvin and the Chipmunks in their sleep.)
Man, the toys aren’t what they used to be. In my day, it was all about Patty Burp, a red-haired doll baby that you flipped upside down, then right side up, and she would reward you with a huge throaty “BURRRRRRRPPP!”
It’s time once again to gather the family together and watch that beloved holiday classic “It’s A Wonderful Life.” I was reminding Aunt Verlie of this at Thanksgiving dinner and she said the same thing she always says around this time of year: “You know, I always thought that George Bailey was an ***-hole.”
