Quips by Jack Stapleton Jr.

Missouriana

*Nothing may summarize this year’s presidential contest better than listening to the candidates recommend where South Carolina residents should palce their Confederate flag.

*An optimist is one who believes the presidential campaign will be over on “Super Tuesday,” while a pessimist remembers the general election is still nearly nine months away.

The (reasonably ) perfect candidate

Jack Stapleton, Jr. shares his view on an abundance of candidates to choose from.

By Jack Stapleton Jr.

When this year’s presidential sweepstakes began, we seemed to have an abundance of candidates from which to choose.

By Debbie Farmer

It seems you can’t even open a magazine these days without reading about a new way to analyze your child.
