How Much To Treat This?

Chances are you’ve been sitting at home for a few months now, only venturing out to the grocery store because you’ve finally eaten the very last pretzel that you found in a forgotten package in the very back of the pantry, and there’s absolutely nothing else in the place to consume. Or maybe, just maybe, [...]

C’mon, already. Play ball.

My softball league organized anti-viral games last week. No umpires, no official scorekeeping, and plenty of space between players. We couldn’t sit in the dugout and had to line up along the fence when we weren’t in the field. We had a great time, and it was definitely good to be playing again. One thing [...]

A Good Slice of Americana

Back in the B.C. (Before Computers) era, I remember my parents voting on machines set up in the gym at my elementary school. Mom and Dad had to sign in, then each step into a voting “booth,” and pull a curtain behind them so no one could see for whom they were casting their votes. [...]

Try Grinning to Help Bear it.

What’s the best way to fight Covid-19? Stay home? Avoid crowds if you do have to leave? Wear a mask even to take out the garbage? Keep six feet between you and anything else breathing? All good ideas, but what about the side effects, like being cooped up in the house, perhaps out of work, [...]

Finding Extra Cash

Who needs some money? Besides all of us individually. I’m thinking more collectively. As in our state treasuries. Right here in Georgia the good ol’ Covid-19 or Wuhan Wallop, or whatever you want to call it, has apparently depleted a good bit of the loose change we the taxpayers keep tucked in Capitol dome sofas.
