  • Closing Comments: The Presidential Race is a Complete Circus

      Ted Cruz is “Lucifer in the flesh,” according to fellow republican, former House Speaker John Boehner. In an interview, GOP front runner Donald Trump attacked Hillary Clinton for playing the “woman card,” saying without it, she would not even be a viable person to run for city council.

  • Closing Comments: Help Aunt Flow & Sign Tampon Tax Petition Now!

    I recently had a Closing Comments segment where I spoke on behalf of Aunt Flow — saying the tampon should be put in the necessity column for tax protection. Since that time, a petition has been started to make that a reality. Please feel free to take up the cause as well and share to others about the petition. The petition needs 100,000 signatures and with some helpful sharing and word of mouth, maybe that can happen.

  • Closing Comments: Bicycling Doesn’t Make You Immune to Traffic Laws

    Grego talks about bicycle safety and the fact that drivers and bicyclists need to be aware of each other before a tragedy occurs. Hard to imagine cycling has seen a worse week than this one.

  • Closing Comments: Tampon Tax is Too Bloody Much

    Ladies, a cause we need to get on board with — the Tampon Tax must go! It does appear to be unfair. Get this, tampons are generally NOT considered a necessity. Really?! On behalf of Aunt Flow, I’d like to see tampons plugged into the necessity column. I’m no special pleader for the feminine products lobby, but I am married and a father of two daughters who buys tampons — for three people! Other families, eve more. Added to the other […]

  • Closing Comments: Grego’s Peep Show

    I’m wearing my springtime Easter colors to remind you that as you shop for candy to put in your baskets, or whatever you put it in, remember the “peep!” The veteran marshmallow confection, staple of Easter baskets, arguably, the mascot of the holiday. But these sticky icky lumps of sweetness get no respect. Hated on, abused… All we can do is pray these fluffy little sugar servants don’t ever “rise to the occasion.”

    Kids say the darndest things! And teenagers are worse. Spring Break found my wife and two teen daughters in the car going somewhere when this debate came up. My oldest was trying to convince the other women in the care that — and I have to speak in code — that men have to handle their weapon from time-to-time to prevent jamming and parts of their bodies from turning blue. Get my drift, y’all? Thankfully, my wife stepped right in […]

  • Closing Comments: Romney’s Trump Card is Weird

    Question, am I the only one who thought Mitt Romney’s televised speech Thursday morning seemed out of place and a little weird? Obviously, the failed presidential candidate has an axe to grind, but is it truly with Donald Trump or with the rest of the country who decided not to vote for him in 2012? Hit play to hear more as I sound off on this odd speech.

  • Closing Comments: ‘It is What it Is’ — A Saying Used Too Much!

    The expression — “It is what is is.” I know you’ve heard it. Do you use it? I love the enormity of what those five words… when strung together… says. Lately, my friends seem to be droppin’ it more and more in our convos. So often that I made a mental note over the weekend that I wanted to talk with you about, then forget. I got a reminder when a dude used it while speaking about the Super Tuesday […]
