There are a few topics every columnist knows just aren't worth the grief. Like this one. But you know me...always poking around in the mud looking for some clarity. From April 28, check out The Politically Correct Column.
Originally published April 21, 2019. A few days earlier the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris went up in flames. The outpouring of support from around the world was remarkable. Why so much fuss over an old building? Because it's a lot more than just an old building.
Originally published on April 7, 2019. There's so much pain and suffering in the world--how can any one person really, truly help? It's a good thing our own communities are so problem free. Except, maybe, they're not.
Originally published March 31, 2019. The attempted mass migration of impoverished and frightened Central American families to the USA is well documented. Not so well documented are the Americans who flood Mexico every week to receive what they can't get here at home. (It's not baskets and trinkets.)

Originally published on March 3, 2019. It's amazing how much you can learn from a scarecrow, a tin man and a lion scared of his own shadow. Who knew that beneath all that entertainment was some seriously good advice?
Originally published on February 24, 2019. The previous week the president's son got pretty worked up at a political rally for his dad and called out "loser teachers" for their agenda of "socialist indoctrination.' Conservatives have plenty of worthy issues to pursue. This isn't one of them.
Originally published February 17, 2019. Is it really all that surprising that a bunch of old Southern guys smeared black shoe polish on their faces when they were younger? Not when you remember that old poem taped on your refrigerator.
