Ace in the Hole

It’s time once again to eavesdrop on a couple of head honchos from the Republican and Democratic parties, enjoying yet another expense account lunch in a dark corner of a trendy Washington, D.C., restaurant. With the Ds currently in total power, the Rs are taking the potshots this time. As we tune in, pleasantries have [...]

Who’s on the List?

Are you on Facebook? Some of the latest reports indicate there are approximately 3 billion or so regular users of the obviously popular app. That’s out of a worldwide population of roughly 7.8 billion people. If you figure that maybe a couple billion of those are kids more concerned with Pokeman Master Journeys or even [...]

Dates of Infamy. Days of Unity.

December 7, 1941. November 22, 1963. September 11, 2001. There are days in history that freeze time. Every generation, it seems, has at least one. Those who fought in or lived through World War II never forgot where they were on the Sunday they heard the news that some far-off place in Hawaii called Pearl [...]

Are the Winds of Change Blowin’?

For some reason, lately I’ve thought about the biblical Book of Exodus. Perhaps you’ll recall that it tells the story of the plagues of Egypt rained down on the Pharaoh when he refused to allow the Israelites to free their bonds of slavery and depart the country. It took a lot of convincing with some [...]

Adopt an Afghan?

Got a spare room or two in your house? I’m just asking because it seems as if there might shortly be quite an influx of soon-to-be former Afghanistan citizens looking for places to stay here in the U.S. The numbers are a little fuzzy at the moment, but if the pictures from the Kabul airport [...]

One Step at a Time

Normally in this space I really try to humorously point out the foibles and follies of our elected officials and others in the public eye who may tend to arise every morning, look in the mirror, and sing the refrain from that old Mac Davis tune, “Oh, Lord, it’s hard to be humble . . [...]

Is the Grass Greener on the Other Side?

Not exactly the greatest news on the pandemic front these days. But in addition to vaccinations, maybe there’s some other kind of relief of sorts soon to be available to sufferers of a variety of issues. For example, perhaps you’ve noticed that as the numbers of Covid-19 cases continue to trend upward again in Georgia, [...]

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 [...]
