Hard to believe...

Just thought I would fill you in on some absolutely bizarre, mind-blowing and amazing things happening in this world of ours. First. I got a press release from Taco Bell: “Taco Bell is launching a nationwide pilot program with TerraCycle® to divert as many used sauce packets as possible away from landfills and give them […]

What is News?

nd one of the central arguments is the  word ‘news’. Okay, let’s define the word ‘news’. The dictionary defines ‘news’ as: a report of recent events; previously unknown information; something having a specified influence or effect; matter that is newsworthy. The definition seems simple, but somehow different sides of an issue have different definitions. For […]

Let's play: "Build a Country"

Think about it, you have been fighting for over 30 years. If not the Russians, then the Americans and their allies. Formed in 1994, the Taliban were made up of former Afghan resistance fighters, known collectively as mujahedeen, who fought the invading Soviet forces in the 1980s. They aimed to impose their interpretation of Islamic […]

Can you imagine the fun I had in NYC

When Wife Patti read about the multi-media exhibit Beyond Vincent Van Gogh in New York City several months ago, it gave her the impetus to book reservations for to the “Big Apple”. We have been travelling to NYC for over 30 years, mostly to see Broadway shows and usually around August 14, our anniversary.  I […]

The Ugly American pops his head up again

You would have thought that after 20 years in Vietnam, the U.S. would have licked their wounds and discovered we don’t know everything. Vietnam’s shift from a centrally planned to a market economy has transformed the country from one of the poorest in the world into a lower middle-income country. Vietnam now is one of […]

Community Journalism

Thirty three years ago....seems like a lifetime. “Hey, Wife Patti, I’ve got an idea for a community newspaper.” That was the beginning of what would become the Times of Wayne County. Back then, the idea of starting a newspaper from scratch wasn’t far fetched. With no backing, or money, the first issue appeared some 33 years […]

Oh that silly COVID thing

No one wants to catch a virus that can possibly kill. At this point who, or what is responsible for the pandemic must be secondary to reality. So far there have been 39,895,980 cases in the U.S. and 629,862 deaths -  and that is nothing to sneeze at. Worldwide there have been 199,758,952 cases with […]

The little things we don't think about

You got a wad of chewing gum in your mouth, but it has lost any, or all of its original flavor. So, do you follow human nature and just chuck it. This brings up several long-term environmental concerns if the gum were to be allowed to collect in landfills and our urban and rural landscapes. […]

Hey, Guess what?

Hell, no, you’re not going to believe this, (Especially if your a stupid Trump Republican), but this climate change thing is real. You know how those poor South American people and those African people are doing the migration thing? They claim it is because the climate is changing, throwing their whole economic and political lives […]

Are we still making the same mistakes?

Yes, the Civil War ended in defeat for the South and for slavery. The following “Reconstruction” years turned out to be a disaster of historic proportions. “The South Shall Rise Again”, was the uncertain epitaph, generally, often mythically inscribed on municipal statues. Many of the following generations of White Southerners truly believed that little had […]
