Save your books for Antiques Roadshow

I have bought my sister's Christmas present and she will buy mine early. We have the same taste in books. So we have gotten into the habit of buying each other books for Christmas that we both want to read. We buy them early, read them first and then give the book as a Christmas present. It does mean we have one less surprise for Christmas. But at our ages who needs surprises? We'd rather have something we want and will enjoy.

Let's start celebrating tiny little things that matter to us. I'll go ...

Holt: Talking with the ‘bogeyman’

This week, let's talk about the folks who are, at least in many minds, the great legislative "bogeyman" - that is, lobbyists! These are the presumably dapper, silver-tongued devils who are protecting something we talked about last week - interest. How insidiously un-American!! …Oops! I quickly realized that if we truly believe in freedom of speech, then everyone has a right to protect their interests by petitioning their government and that doing so is America's real national pastime.
