This blogger took his eye off the blog and nearly missed posting an offering today; the arrival of Tom Tomorrow's latest 'toon will serve in lieu of one of blogger's unposted essays. In today's post, Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) reviews 2015 to mid-June with the balance of the 2015 nonsense to follow next week. The key events of the first half of 2015 were the SCOTUS decisions in June to (1) uphold the constiutionality of Obamacare and (2) uphold the right of same-sex couples to marry. No plagues of locusts or any other such disasters followed. The sun rose in the east each morning thereafter. If this is (fair & balanced) reality, so be it.
