Maybe Free Tums Come with the Job

Everywhere you go these days you’ll see “Help Wanted” signs. It seems every retail establishment and restaurant is looking for workers. Not to mention trucking companies and even airlines. A whole lot of people left the workforce about 18 months ago and for whatever reason have not yet returned. Some former employees may feel they [...]

Super Conference Prospects?

As the tempests in teapots continue to boil in Washington, be they Joe Biden’s ad libs, the definition of infrastructure, who wants to spend what money where, the January 6th hearings, or myriad others, I thought it might be a nice change to talk about something near and dear to Americans (and definitely Southerners) across [...]

Whattaya Mean You’re Out of It?

Supply and demand. I thought I’d learned that basic economic principle most pointedly from my Intro to Econ professor my junior year in college. I had put off taking the course as long as I could. Political Science majors may NEED to know about how the money supply and businesses work, but they often really [...]

You Scratch My Back . . .

Quick question: What makes the world of politics roll merrily along? The short answer? Money, money, and more money. Both main political parties carry out the art of fund-raising perhaps better than any other entity on earth. Republicans and Democrats alike are constantly searching for ways to ignite their followers and open up pocketbooks. There’s [...]

Courting College Quarterbacks

As America gets ready to welcome the start of a new football season (that’s the football you can touch with your hands, not the football on which you just use your feet), fans might find some interesting additions to uniforms. (It’ll happen to basketball and baseball and all school-supported sports later.) You know all those [...]

The Lull is Over.

Ready or not, he’s baccccckkkkkk! Well, not totally. And fear not, anti-Trumpers, The Donald has not stormed the White House and engaged in fisticuffs with Joe Biden ­– just yet. But he did hit the campaign trail recently in Ohio, stumping for a former presidential aide of his who is challenging a sitting Republican Congressman [...]

This, That, and Hooray for Hoops

Some weeks, there’s just too much to talk about. With the world emerging from the pandemic paranoia and its attendant pitfalls, the return to some semblance of normalcy has created such a preponderance of stories, it’s hard to single out just one to discuss. So instead, I chose several. President Biden and “Vlad” Putin got [...]

Celebrating “Day Off” Days

It all started with a huge uproar over Columbus Day. There were some folks who thought Christopher Columbus wasn’t quite the same fellow we all read about in our history books. And, as they pointed out, he certainly wasn’t the first person in the New World, which gave rise to Indigenous People Day being posited [...]

“Role” with the Punches?

If she didn’t already know, Vice President Kamala Harris is probably finding out this week what kind of dubious job it is to be Number Two. You have to believe most, if not all, of the previous 48 people to hold that office, didn’t find a lot of good things to say about it. Even [...]

Been There? Done That?

Countless kids sitting at countless desks for countless years have listened to countless teachers drone on and on about events that occurred years and years and years ago. History is a subject that learners found either fascinating or totally without merit. As in certain math classes, the question always asked was, “When am I ever [...]
