I’m taking my annual one-column breather from the nation’s political storms to promote not-exactly-earthshaking ideas that have been bugging me and, maybe, you.
This year: golf on television, parking your car, simplifying voicemail and non-alcoholic beer (also wine).
With mugs of beer and more-carefully chosen words, President Barack Obama tried to push himself and the nation beyond a political uproar, hailing a “friendly, thoughtful” conversation with the black professor and white policeman whose dispute had ignited a fierce debate over race in America.

A New Orleans company is sending 1,000 cases of beer to Fargo for a post-flood party.
Mayor Dennis Walaker said during the city’s flood fight this spring that he would buy everyone a beer after it was over.
Representatives of the Dixie Brewing Co. in New Orleans heard about the flood and Walaker’s comment and offered to help.
After 5 is hosting a beer tasting March 27 and is calling on all beer brewers to include their home-brewed in the event at the Arts Center.
A contest to determine the best home-brewed is a part of the evening of beer tasting. To enter the contest, home brewers need a ticket to the event and at least two bottles of their beer for tasting.
Is the King of Beers ready to punt away its crown?
For years, the folks at Anheuser-Busch have spent lavishly to remind fans that nothing goes better while watching the big game than a 6-pack brought to you by (insert Harry Caray impersonation here) “your good friends at Budweiser.”
A North Dakota Barley Council official says growers are waiting for more information about the $52 billion takeover of An-heuser Busch Cos. by Belgian brewer InBev SA.
“I’m not going to speculate on anything. It’s going to take time for any details of the transaction to be disclosed,” said Steve Edwardson, the Barley Council administrator.
The prospect of Anheuser-Busch being taken over by a brewing company with roots in Belgium and Brazil has made some Northern Plains barley growers uneasy.
Budweiser is king in Idaho, Montana and North Dakota, where nearly three-fourths of the nation’s barley is grown. Fairfield, in north-central Montana, even touts itself as the “Barley Capital of the World.” Malt barley from the region also finds its way into beers brewed by Coors, Miller and international companies that include Grupo Modelo SA, a Mexican producer that recently built an Idaho Falls, Idaho, plant to process barley into malt.

Anheuser-Busch Cos. rejected an unsolicited $46 billion purchase offer from InBev Thursday, just hours after the Belgian brewer appeared to set the stage for a hostile takeover bid.
Anheuser-Busch Chief Executive August Busch IV sent a letter to InBev Chief Executive Carlos Brito saying the offer greatly undervalued the largest U.S. brewer, calling the $65-a-share price “financially inadequate” and not in the best interests of its shareholders.
