Yer Out!

In case it’s slipped your mind, in just a few short weeks the 2020 major league baseball season will begin in earnest. Spring Training is in full swing (pun intended), and hope springs eternal for fans of every team, knowing “this is our year!” Unfortunately, there’s a taint of scandal hanging over ballfields in Florida [...]

A Slight Change in the Rules

Remember the spring and summer of 2016? Republicans beating each other up on (and off) debate stages? Dishing dirt on the front-runner and general unpleasantness emanating from every microphone?  But on the Democratic side, it was a bit more subdued. In a very short time, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders emerged as the only two [...]

Good News Anyone?

Raise your hand if you could use a little good news. I thought so. The last couple of weeks have not been pleasant. At least not in terms of our elected officials. No need to go into the specifics of who was right and who was wrong. From impeachment hearings to State of the Union [...]

A Sunday Morning Suggestion

As a lifelong member of a host of church choirs, I’ve heard quite a few sermons. Every purveyor of The Word has a different style of delivery and vehicle for getting messages across. The one that tends to work best for me is when a mixture of today’s examples and what ancient writers noted in [...]

The Trouble With Harry . . .

As Igor said to Dr. Frankenstein in the grave-digging scene from YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, “Could be worse. Could be raining.” Or, you might be an impeached President. Or, heaven forfend, Queen Elizabeth. If you were the latter, you might figure that being the head Royal would be a piece of cake. You’re beloved by your subjects, [...]

What’s New?

Ho, hum. The holiday festivities are more than over, the decorations are down (not put away, mind you, but down), the diets have started, and everyone is just thrilled to be back at work and school. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were something interesting going on in the world to capture our attention? But, [...]

Dodging a Bullet

How’d you like World War III this week? Or perhaps you missed it. Didn’t last nearly as long as the first two in the series. Thankfully what was touted by Iran as the United States committing an initial act of combat didn’t progress past some sand getting rearranged in retribution. Cooler heads prevailed and, for [...]

Crystal Ball Gazing, Anyone?

Got any predictions for 2020? I’d guess many of you reading this will venture a prophecy regarding the fate of one Donald J. Trump. Some will say he’ll be kicked out of office shortly. Others will say it doesn’t matter about that; whoever the Democrats put up against him will win in November and do [...]

A Tasty Resolution

The New Year is just about upon us. Got a little election in November and lots of fun things in between. But before all that, are you one of the millions who have made a Resolution for 2020? According to extensive research, the most common ones are eating healthier, getting more exercise, and saving more [...]
