Let’s Talk About the Self-Made Billionaire Kylie Jenner

Last week Forbes published what has become its second annual clickbait attempt.

I think most people look at “self-made billionaire” and laugh for reasons that I hope are obvious. Her sister, Kim Kardashian, a...

Like the toxic smoke that hovered over much of California in recent days, the toxic post election political environment cast a similar pall over the fortunes of Republicans across the Golden State.  It is easy to pick through the wreckage and conclude, but there simply were no bright spots and to conclude, as have some, that the party in California is dead.
