Can you play God Bless America on a banjo

The Alaska legislature, ethics committee, report that investigated Sarah Palin’s abuse of power, during her beverly hillbilly like tenure as Governor of Alaska found that her husband Todd, the self described “first dude of Alaska” was in there running things, sort of like a "two for".

Todd Palin spent about 50 per cent of his time in the governor's office, making phone calls, participating in meetings or just hanging out.

We're having it (a meeting Todd called with officials) in the governor's office, and he's not the governor. I think he was trying to use state trappings to handle a personal issue.

He had a significant influence, in that he was always interacting with the employees there,

Any time I needed to get information to the governor, I would always go through Todd.

The governor and her staff kept Todd Palin in the loop on a wide range of issues, copying him on e-mails about union matters, public relations and a bill requiring parental consent for abortions

Just think, if McCain actually won the US election, Todd would be one heartbeat away from being the first dude of America.

At three in the morning who will answer the phone, Todd?

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
