Your intrepid reporter underwent successful cataract surgery yesterday. God bless Medicare. The surgeon was referred by my family doctor and is the best in the city. When he schedules these operations he does an average of 16 in a day.As always,the doctor was running behind so it took an extra hour. The patient behind the curtain next to me in pre-op spoke no English and the nurse had to get a translator on the phone to get the necessary questions answered. When she came to check on me I asked how often they had to do that. She said it was a lot. Welcome to America.

Former Sen. Scott Brown, who represented Massachusetts, but now resides in New Hampshire, got the nod this weekend.

Cruz Camp Concerned Sarah Palin May Endorse Trump in Ames
The Donald Trump campaign announced last weekend they will be making a major announcement on Tuesday in Ames, Iowa at Iowa State University… With a special guest–
“I think it [would] be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion,” Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler said on CNN’s “New Day.”
WOULD SHE RUN AS TRUMP’S V.P. IF ASKED?
IS HE SMART ENOUGH TO REALIZE WHAT A FORCE SHE STILL IS, EVEN AFTER BEING SCREWED OVER BY MCSTAIN?
ABOUT THAT SHAM OF A “PRISONER EXCHANGE”
Obama’s ugly prisoner exchange with Iran
First: It’s a de facto prisoner exchange — of Americans who had done nothing wrong, for Iranians charged with or convicted of real crimes, even if the administration proudly noted that it had refused to spring anyone accused of terrorism
Second: The White House sprang the deal the day it was unlocking $100 billion in Iranian assets as per the nuclear accord.
Obama & Co. insist the nuclear understanding will pave the way to better Iranian behavior, but none of our allies in the region — from the Israelis to the Saudis — buys it.
Instead, they’re figuring out what they have to do to guard their own security now that America no longer has their backs.

“We had to learn it from the TV ourselves, and that’s very disappointing and heartbreaking,” Robert Levinson’s wife, Christine, told the Associated Press. She used stronger language in another interview, telling ABC News that she felt “extremely betrayed” by the White House.
