Hennen Column: My New Year’s Resolution Is To Forget Barack Obama

Any listener to my radio show over the last 5 years would have little trouble recognizing that I really don’t think much of President Barack Obama policies. So it may surprise some that I’m pledging to pretty much ignore him in the future. In fact, I’m planning to write and sign a pledge and then

Hennen Column: Why Do School Shootings Happen?

Like many parents across America today, I could not resist the urge to hug my kids a bit longer after hearing the news of yet another school shooting.
