Guns in our country are really in the spotlight. Fear is a big factor among many now in our society — terrorism, night club mass murders, policemen being murdered, domestic violence.

Guns are not the problem.

Maybe we should outlaw trucks.

On the Texas scene open carry is now legal if you have passed the certified concealed carry course. I’m not too excited about open carry. I think it’s primarily a macho thing.

PGA Championship: Instead of making history, Spieth trying to ignore it

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Jordan Spieth walked with purpose down the long corridor toward his locker, not stopping to look at the photos and scorecards that cover more than a century of golf history at Baltusrol.
Maybe that was just as well.

History has proven to be his toughest opponent this year, and it was bound to be a losing battle.
