A Salute to the Feast Providers

As we rapidly approach the time of year We the People annually set aside to give extra special thanks, I’d like to give a shout-out to a group of folks that may not always be uppermost on our minds come Feast Day. It goes without saying that family and friends will be celebrated on Thanksgiving, [...]

Voting Deja vu

Here we go again. Voters in Georgia won the electoral lottery one more time. Run-off elections two years ago apparently gave everyone in the Peach State a taste of excitement. That white hot national spotlight must have felt good. Because, as of this writing anyway, it appears as if control of the U.S. Senate might [...]

How May I Help You?

Great customer service. A quaint notion. Maybe even something of an oxymoron these days. Perhaps you’ve had a better experience than I when calling an 800 number, but at least in recent months, the service rendered by those deputized to deal with the public is, well, spotty at best. I can’t imagine that’s by design, [...]

Chairman of the Horde

Lots of sports going on right now. Major League Baseball is proving once again that there are too many teams in its playoff system. College and professional football are both in mid-season form. The NBA and NHL seasons are kicking off. And over in China, the Communist Party Congress is meeting to decide on how [...]

Surprise! It’s October.

With the month of October heading into the homestretch, it’s a safe bet that as the temperatures cool down the political rhetoric will undoubtedly heat up. After all, we’re only a few short weeks away from yet another election day. In all probability, most of We the People intend to do our civic duty in [...]

Holding Out Hope

As I’m writing this, the week is certainly shaping up to be one filled with all manner of machinations, maneuvering, and manmade misadventures. To begin with, the Supremes are back in business. The first Monday in October is the traditional start to the Court’s new session. This will be the first one featuring four female [...]

A Nice Morning Sugar High

Just in case you’re getting a bit tired of the ever-increasing political toxicity and calamitous world events, I thought I’d take a break from the mayhem and talk about cereal this week. Perhaps that’s a topic that will stir emotions without simultaneously raising blood pressure and causing friendships to fracture. A recent article on the [...]

Just a Chat Among Friends

Big doin’s in Uzbekistan at the end of last week. There was a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, an eight-country security bloc that includes Russia, India, Pakistan, four former Soviet Central Asian republics, and, oh yeah, China . . . which may have a bit of oversized influence on the group. Officially, the bloc’s [...]

It Seemed Like a Good Idea

When’s the last time you made one of those decisions that you lived to regret? Perhaps it was something simple such as telling your children they couldn’t have ice cream cones at 5:00 in the afternoon because it would spoil their dinner. Then you had to throw away your own double-scoop chocolate cone two days [...]
