When I got home, Laura and the dogs greeted me as if I had been on a long safari in Africa. As I put my head on the pillow, I reflected that America is full of pretty good people. And if you have the opportunity to go out and meet them and keep the Washington news media shut down and out of your mind, this becomes abundantly clear.
  • A good week

  • Costly education: There is a better way
    Friday, November 8, 2019 7:18 AM
    For education and healthcare, it seems reasonable that the payers call a strike or boycott. The Democrats are masters at this. How does it work? Users of the education system refuse to pay bills from universities in August and September and December and January until the fees go down. Hit 'em in the gut. Run them out of money or at least make them draw on their reserves.

  • NCAA makes the right move
    Thursday, October 31, 2019 9:15 AM
    The NCAA made news on Oct. 29 when they decided “…to let student athletes profit from their names, images.” It's about time.

  • Blasts from the past
    Saturday, October 26, 2019 10:33 AM
    This is certain: Things will not stay the same as they are right now. This will be the startling lesson for the younger generations who think the world they live in now will be the one in which they grow old. Change is constant, and despite a trip down memory lane as I have described here, change will continue to happen. We don’t have to embrace it, but we must be cognizant of it.

  • One, two dog night
    Sunday, October 20, 2019 8:21 AM
    You may recall our dog, Fred, who succumbed to congestive heart failure in the spring of 2018. He was the poet laureate of The HCP before his untimely death at age 11. Immediately on the heels of Fred came Broc, despite my declaration of “no rebound dogs.” We went to get Fred’s ashes at the vet’s and came home not only with his ashes, but also with Broc.

  • Save the whales
    Friday, October 11, 2019 11:58 AM
    Since the beginning of recorded time, humans have been incorrectly interpreting phenomenon in nature as notice of impending doom. Eclipses, earthquakes, tsunamis and other naturally occurring events have been declared by learned people of their time to be signaling the end of time.

  • Socialism is already here
    Saturday, October 5, 2019 9:16 AM
    If I have not made my point by now, I’ll make it again just to be sure: I resent paying for socialists’ feel-good projects.

  • Cryin’ at the editorial desk
    Saturday, September 28, 2019 9:22 AM
    Sir, you and your kindred in the liberal media have brought this on yourselves. You do not present news in a fair and balanced way. The (NYT) editorial page has crept into your so-called news stories, without notice. Your staff has a strong left-leaning political bias and likely is not good at math (see my column last week).

  • Take all numbers from some journalists with a grain of salt
    Sunday, September 22, 2019 10:07 AM
    Time and again, journalists give us numbers that are completely out of line and provided in such ignorance that it is patently obvious they know not what they are talking about. Spoiler alert – this will lead to climate change at the end, so if you want to jump to there, just go ahead.

  • The 2nd Amendment is ‘so 18th century’
    Sunday, September 15, 2019 9:34 AM
    One way to mitigate the risk would be for people on a mass basis to change their hearts so they want to be helpful to their fellow human, not belligerent or non-caring. Unless we have a nationwide, old-fashioned revival, that doesn’t seem likely.
