The Foreman Forecast: See no, hear no

Picture the scene: a room full of eager folks on the edges of their seats. Eyes wide. Ears open. Waiting to heave questions – to see how hopes, plans, dreams, vendettas and more will collide and then – nothing. No pictures. No sound. Sounds like the end of "The Sopranos,"...

The Foreman Forecast: Covfefes all around!

I’ve watched a lot of Congressional hearings in my life, and most are about as exciting as a dusty painting of the Founding Fathers contemplating a parchment. But I must doff my powdered wig to the Senate Intelligence Committee – because the testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey...
