    Remember when President Biden called Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s decision to lift the ban on masks “neanderthal thinking?” Well, it looks like the neanderthal’s knew something President Biden and the CDC didn’t.  Texas lifted the mask ban in early March.

    The nighttime sky in rural Nevada is drop-dead spectacular. No pollution and no big-city lights produce dark skies and a blanket of majestic stars. My bet is most people who live in the great open spaces of Nevada have seen a UFO. Or two. Or more. Now, I don’t want […]
