    Just in case you are among the few who still doubt that Christmas miracles happen, I personally witnessed one Tuesday night as nearly 1,400 people packed the Orpheum Theater in downtown Phoenix to see the KTAR production of Dickens “A Christmas Carol.” It is miraculous that after 26 consecutive years a story that everybody has […]
  • McMahon: Ho, ho, ho

    Two holiday stories in the news recently caught my eye.
  • McMahon: Splitting rails

    OK. So we continually present the United States as the technology leader of the world. Yes, there was Edison, the Wright Brothers and everyone responsible for landing men on the moon.

    What are Republicans most thankful for this holiday week? Well, in general, I suppose, that they picked up all those seats in the election. But now, of course, they have to come up with leaders that excite the electorate. That put a little tobasco on the issues.
  • McMahon: Remembered

    Forty-seven years ago Monday. Could it really have been nearly a half-century since Camelot was destroyed?
  • McMahon: Lost dog

    Sometimes when you're involved with the news stories of the day, you can't help but get choked up over some of them.
  • McMahon: I spy

    Hey! I know. Let’s all meet at the airport and get naked. Boy! Talk about angry villagers.

When people originally had to walk thru the metal detectors and have their bags scanned there was minor complaining. Even […]

  • McMahon: Winners and Losers

    So Election Day is over for another two years. Of course the 2012 Presidential Campaign begins this morning. Most of the precincts have reported. Some mail-in & write-in ballots need to be counted but no matter how you voted, the people have spoken - loudly.
  • McMahon: Palinology

    Here are a few thoughts from one of those corrupt media bastards that Sarah Palin was talking about Sunday on -- the media. I should go on record to say that I don't believe I've ever been accused of any kind of corruption and my parents were married some time before my birth.
