On the whole, we are deteriorating, folks. These are not problems to be blamed on big box stores, these are often problems of poor, corrupt or incompetent management. In the voting booth this fall, look askance at anyone claiming to have the solutions to our deteriorating cities. Nearly all politicians’ performance over the last 70 years has been dismal.

  • Emotions should not trump science and math
    Wednesday, June 24, 2020 4:05 PM
    If you have not spent a lot of time digging into data or if you know math and science are not strengths for you, I have a recommendation, should you want to discern the truth for yourself. Gather as much information as you can. Then, seek out people you trust on both sides of whatever issue you are examining. Listen to them, roll it over in your mind, then decide for yourself, having gathered as much information as you can, what way to go. I also have a recommendation as to where not to gather information for your opinions. Television or social media. Both spew the emotional side only.

  • The end of Crump, 1968
    Sunday, June 21, 2020 8:45 AM
    The acorn does not fall far from the tree, they say. There are some issues and personalities I deal with in a tough manner. For other situations, I am a softie. The example for my life was set in Highland County in the years on the farms by a conservationist.

  • All hat, no cattle, 1964
    Thursday, June 11, 2020 4:20 PM
    These days, I dream a lot, and people from various times in my life show up in my dreams. Once in a while, SHE does, but now I have the nerve to wave at her across the room – and she smiles and waves back.

  • Chapter 1964, Fourth Quarter: Oolitic, Indiana
    Tuesday, June 2, 2020 9:26 AM
    Thanksgiving weekend 1964 revolves around a hamburger, served to me about 7 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 28, in a small diner in Oolitic, Ind. I drank a glass of milk with it.

  • Exploring other spaces and ideas
    Friday, May 29, 2020 11:43 AM
    The means are easier and more economical to implement than ever before. The question is this: Do we have the will to explore other spaces, other ideas? I hope I do, and I hope you do. We are richer for the experience when we do.

  • Tribalism and personal perspective
    Sunday, May 24, 2020 8:22 AM
    The movie “My Cousin Vinny” is a great study in this sort of tribalism. New Yorkers thrust into southern Alabama. Both sides view the other with suspicion and doubt. Makes for a hilarious movie, but one that rings way too true. So, when you hear people talk about “tribalism” today, think about where you are and what your experiences have been.

  • What’s next, America?
    Friday, May 15, 2020 3:43 PM
    Since 2016, especially since November of 2016, those of both parties, particularly the Democrat party members, who don’t like President Donald Trump, have thrown up one roadblock after another, attempting to destroy his presidency. Nothing has stuck to him. In fact, in all cases, the accusers have ended up looking petty, childish and in some cases, treasonous. Undeterred, they continue to attempt to derail him and his administration.

  • Time to update the anti-trust laws, Part 2
    Friday, May 8, 2020 4:16 PM
    The operative word in anti-trust discussions is “collusion.” It is not only money, which is how the current laws are focused. Anti-trust language needs to be rewritten and codified as collusion centric, not money centric before our rights are completely abrogated by large private enterprises.

  • Time to update the anti-trust laws, Part 1
    Friday, May 1, 2020 2:53 PM
    Large corporations are saying, “We value our time, we don’t value yours.” It is a tremendous insult and a tremendous cost to the consumer.
