So this is what life is like this time of year in the Valley of the Sun. Don’t even think about trying to play golf, or even hitting balls. The golf courses are pretty much all closed until ~ the 20th because everyone has reseeded their summer Bermuda and planted winter rye. And it’s happening across thousands upon thousands of front lawns where everything once glorious green is now the color of wheat waiting for the landscapers to do their thing.

R.I.P. Tom Petty. Truly one of the greats. He had a quirky, kind of goofy, laid-back persona but a knack for writing songs with great hooks and equally-cool music videos. Had a great, no-nonsense band that just churned out no-frills rock. He’s now in heaven with his Traveling Wilbury mates Roy Orbison and George Harrison (the latter with whom he co-penned the incredible “Cheer Down”, which marries Petty’s sense of melody and lyric with a truly virtuoso performance by Harrison). He went too soon, but I have a feeling he got every ounce out of the life he lived and enjoyed it all.

In the days ahead you’ll read dozens of stories like this one, but this one in particular is tough. Very tough. Prayers go out for not only the dead, but for those who survived. They’ll need all they can get.

…along those same lines, now that’s a smart phone!

Talk about your dangerous jobs! Maybe KFC isn’t such a bad gig?

The President’s Cup was a snoozer, for sure, but it definitely underscores just how much young talent the U.S. has out there. Methinks Europe is going to have their work cut out for them in next year’s Ryder Cup.

You probably won’t hear a lot of this from the usual media suspects – they’re far too interested in bashing President Trump – but I think this is a big deal. European nations ignore at your own risk.

I think this is exactly right. The media keeps looking for ways to see President Trump stumble, but all he does is show them how petty and ignorant they are. The President doesn’t suffer fools gladly, and the media just can’t fathom it.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Kelly’s problem is that she forgot who she was. Her show was amped up by the killer ratings she would get when sandwiched between powerhouses like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, but her ego took over. Talk about someone screwing up their career, and royally!

…speaking of ruining one’s career: that moronic Democrat mayor of San Juan. Surely she realizes what a jerk she looks like. You diss the President of the US in public and then when he criticizes you for your incompetence you double down on stupid? Good luck with that, honey…

And a final thought for y’all’s consideration: here is where the NFL protests and the Vegas massacre intersect politically, and you tell me where I’m wrong: The same people supporting the protesting of the flag and our national anthem because they believe that police shootings of innocent civilians is an epidemic are now the same people telling us that we need gun control and that only the police should have guns. …And you tell me that liberalism isn’t a mental disorder?
