    • January 19, 2018

    A police officer works for a chief of police. A deputy works for a sheriff. Police officers work in a police department, emphasis on the word department, as in another department of the city, like water and sewage. Deputies work in the sheriff’s office, a stand-alone office of government. The big distinction: a chief of

    For those of us who have strong political opinions, we generally fall into three tribes, progressives, conservatives and libertarians. I’m not talking about political parties. I’m talking about guiding moral philosophies. You already know your tribe and I’m guessing you’re comfortable in your moral superiority. I know I am. Inside each of these tribes we

I’m pretty sure it thinks its name is “No!” But get this, it came with the name “Gary.” Gary? Who names a dog Gary?
