Some contests not safe to ignore

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for February 11, 2024)




I'm not watching television today. It's impossible for me to care less about a sporting event-- a game-- than I do

The winners will not inherit an army of career rights violators who imagine their job is to control how the rest of us live. I can ignore the event without danger.
