More useless than socks on a pig

The only thing more useless than socks on a pig are New Year's resolutions. Our intentions are applaudable but our follow-through usually leaves a bit to be desired. Still, that should not keep us from trying. I mean, what else is there to do while lying prone on the couch with a snoot full of black-eyed peas and collards and watching the Yada-Yada Bowl?

Seeing red flags

There is a really good reason to support Senate confirmation of Rex Tillerson to be President-elect Donald Trump's secretary of state: Tony Perkins opposes him.

Merry Christmas to all! If you are feeling a little down already because you think the holiday is drawing to an end, rejoice.

The partridge represented Jesus. The turtle doves represent the Old Testament ...
