Horace placed an ad in a newspaper for men to work in his factory and was surprised that his advertisement produced more complaints than applicants. And furthermore, the complaints came from only irate women. They charged him with being a women hater for offering jobs only to men, which the angered women were quick to point out, was a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibited discrimination in employment because of sex.
P.T. Barnum, a sideshow huckster from yesteryear, was reputed to have said: "You can fool some of the people some of the time but, you can't fool all the people all of the time", but President Donald Trump is certainly trying with some success. He would have the nation believe that he, alone, has managed to reduce unemployment to a figure that Marilyn Monroe would have admired and that the economy, since he took office, has taken off like a rocket.
Edna Mae suffered a mild malady and wasn't sure whether it was God or Dr. Jones who cured her, but it was De. Jones who submitted a bill. And, the bill he submitted, in Edna Mae's opinion, was a whopper.

When a masked man entered a local bar and grill, its patrons knew immediately, he wasn't the Lone Ranger. Brandishing a pair of six-shooters, the stranger announced a hold-up and directed the patrons in the bar and grill to empty their pocket. Actually, however, the two guns were unnecessary to carry out the caper. One whiff of the gunman's breath -- reeking from the odor of garlic -- was almost sufficient to hold anyone at bay.
Kentucky's regional universities and quasi-governmental agencies were set to get temporary relief from skyrocketing pension costs under House Bill 358 after the House and Senate passed the bill on the final day of the session.
These days, people talk a lot about representation in the media. For many, that was the draw of the last superhero blockbuster, Captain Marvel -- seeing a woman headline her own movie within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Of course, Wonder Woman from DC fit that bill too, but within the tightly-woven series of films that has brought us from 2008's "Iron Man" to this week's release of "Avengers: Endgame," Captain Marvel was the first female to fly solo.
