The Real Skinny

During the 1950s I first heard the term “the real skinny.”  This appellation was used to describe what were believed to be the “true facts” about any subject under discussion.   During the past month or more I have read everything I could about our current political situation.  I have read liberal/progressive commentators, and I […]
