Can-do attitude!

Thirty days over, so now what??!!

I wanna slap them to sleep.Those guys – those guys who devour fully grown swine and somehow lose weight – have always been on my hit list.

My questions are these:

How do they do it?

And, why can’t I do it?

“Their metabolism is good,” I hear.

Huh?

We who work in journalism frequently reflect upon deep, meaningful questions such as “Did that elected official really just say that?” and “For Pete’s Sake, will somebody make a motion already so that this City Council/Commissioners Court/School Board meeting will come to an end?”

This week, I posed a rhetorical question about Tweeting to a friend who is a journalism professor.

When strange or unexpected things happen, some people are quick to say that there’s nothing new under the sun.

You may have thought that Donald Trump backing out of Thursday’s Republican debate was an exception.

Hooked again with the soaps

January 30, 2016

I sat here and contemplated what to write about for quite a while, and the fact of the matter is that over the last six weeks I’ve been a major homebody and somewhat reclusive.

He may have said them with tongue firmly cheek-implanted, but the late Will Rogers’ gentle observations of the world made the medicines of life go down smoother.

Many of his drawls – in print or in person – included this observation: “All I know is what I read in the papers.”

Rogers – like the rest of us –now would be hard pressed to properly attribute “all we know,” or, better stated, what we think we know.

Head thumps for dummies

I’m pretty sure I’m going to embarrass myself with this column because of what I am about to admit.

Maybe if I kind of back into it, I won’t sound so ignurnt.

As I was going to bed Sunday night, I realized that I had not done any Bible reading over the weekend.
