The front page of Omaha.com, and the breaking news from the Omaha World-Herald Saturday was that Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy made 2,300 phone calls to four women. I read the article, looking for some indication why I should care that he called these women, and after reading the entire article, that question was never answered.
However, I do know exactly how many phone calls he made during what time frames to different women. I now know more about Mr. Sheehy's phone bill than I know about my own.
Bellevue's new Chick-fil-A is currently under construction, just a mile or so from where I live (as the crow flies). There's been much excitement building ever since the news broke several months ago. People really like their chicken, and apparently there's real demand for fried chicken sandwiches served six days a week.
I can't say I've never been tempted by one of those cutting-edge e-readers. I suppose I'm just old-fashioned. I prefer my books on paper and without batteries or chargers.
The Academy Awards, Hollywood's most pretentious night, is just around the corner, and it seems as if the battle for best picture will be one in which America's most honest president and Ben Affleck duel head-to-head.

Both films deserve to be recognized and awarded, but that doesn't mean that tinsel town's favorite circus, known by most as award season, isn't broken.
