Saturday was International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the 71st anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in 1945 (it’s marked on different dates in different nations, for instance, Holocaust Memorial Day in Israel is in April).
Congratulations to HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines of “Fixer Upper,” who recently announced that they’re expecting their fifth child. Of course, being Christians and celebrities, this blessed event can’t just be celebrated, it also must be criticized by a bunch of leftist busybodies with Twitter accounts.
Today, we snap one last, giant Huck’s Hero salute to a genuine American icon: John Young, who spent 42 years in NASA’s space program, becoming the longest-serving US astronaut in history, died Friday in Houston at 87.
This week, I’m recounting “Simple Christmas” stories shared with me a few years ago by my radio listeners. One thing we all learned from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is that it’s not how fancy your tree is that matters, it’s the love it represents. A radio listener of mine named Vicky from California sent me a beautiful story that illustrates that as well as Charles M. Schulz did.
