    Wish Obama would go away quietly

    As I was considering to become a subscriber to Netflix I was dismayed to learn that Netflix signed a contract with the Obamas. Since leaving the White House, Obama has traveled around the world discrediting President Trump. It has reached a point where it borders on treason. Then, when I heard that Susan Rice was going to become a board member because of her outstanding integrity, I changed my mind.

    Yes, the president lies

    In response to the editorial posted by Mr. Davis titled “has the President ever lied to us;” The story was interesting and topical; however, I was quite taken aback by the concluding sentence. It alluded to the notion that the present holder of office was like his predecessors. This is not a reflection of what we know.

    Look for real solutions

    It’s very apparent that a “gun free” America is the ultimate goal of many in the far left who admittedly want to do away with our Secon Amendment. 

    Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that anti-gun activists should demand repeal of our Second Amendment.

    Former NBC President Michael Gartner wrote in the USA today,

  • Pun Alley: Humor all around

    Recently I received an email with actual pictures of newspaper bloopers.

    For a long time I believed that comedy writers wrote all the bloopers. So, I found a number of real bloopers and puns from newspapers, road signs, radio and TV, along with some others I could not resist.

  • Just what does -30- mean to a writer?

    Back in the dark ages, as the younger members of my family call it, we used to type stories on manual typewriters.
    We typed on 8 1/2- inch paper, usually with carbon paper in between, so you would have a copy of what you wrote when you handed it in.
    At the bottom of each page you typed -more- so the typesetter on the Linotype machine knew there was another page.

  • Many millennials unaware of Holocaust

    There’s an old quote with many variations that is one of my favorites. Here’s one of many choices: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
    In our schools, both public and private, we are great in STEM, science, technology, engineering and math. It seems that we have gotten away from some of the core learning that many of us experienced when we were in school.
    I’ve always felt that English and related subjects should be emphasized. Social media have destroyed grammar and spelling. Is anyone still teaching these?

  • State's time change law may not be workable

    There are two weekends that I despise every year. Many others talk about changing them, but one is here again. Can you guess what they are?
    Here’s a hint: Turn your clocks ahead this weekend.
    I have railed against the time change for years. I want it one way, I don’t care which, just be consistent.
    The state Legislature has taken up the cause, and this year considered different proposals. However, I was not in favor of any of them.

  • Let's put God back in our schools

    It’s a little tough to write anything that hasn’t been said after Valentine’s Day’s terrible shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, in which 14 students and three faculty members were killed. But I’m going to give it a try.

    Fifty-five years ago, the Supreme Court, under liberal Earl Warren, ruled against prayer in the public schools. Since then public school educators are almost paranoid about teaching any type of morality in the schools, lest some misguided parent go after them if they do.
