What a year! The faster it becomes history the better. Our country has made mistakes in the past, but electing Dear Leader has to be one of the worst.

Not to blow my own horn, but to offer it as a reminder. The old quizmaster completed 50 years of blood donation this month. If they had to keep sticking me for all that time, then they must really need blood.

If you can, donating blood is one good way to offer back to the community. There is always a need AND it is non-partisan.

We can’t even get a rest for the holidays can we?
