One of my most favorite vehicles to travel the Towle road in is my 1967 Mercury convertible. Unfortunately, some speedbumps in the road, have caused us not to be able to use it nearly as much as we’d like to. We’ve decided it’s time to part with this jewel and let someone else enjoy it.   I would...
They want to take the U.S. Post Office away from us and sell it to UPS, FedEx, Speedy and all those other delivery services that regularly and inconveniently leave our packages in plastic bags at the end of our driveways come rain, snow, sleet, or whatever. I don’t know about you, but I think that...
The Donald, as some refer to our President, in his quest to make America great again, sure seems to upset some people. I don’t know if it’s a matter of dis-liking him and his successful though unconventional negotiating tactics, or, a fear that he will succeed in making Americans proud and...
I’m glad to see the ratings for the various Hollywood awards shows are rapidly declining. Hopefully people will soon turn these foul mouthed, Trump deranged, so-called celebrities off completely. It’s a pretty sad commentary on the state of our society, when an actor can stand in front of a large...
The Donald gives to you with one hand and takes from you with the other.  Take for example the tax bill that he signed some months ago. The Donald said it was a really big tax cut. Some of us - not me - actually paid less taxes and got pay raises because our employers were paying less taxes. That...
I returned from Viet Nam at the end of August, 1965. I had long since learned not to be sure, or even really hopeful, that what was on my itinerary for the next day would actually come to pass. Even after safely arriving in California, I had no idea how long it would take the Army to process my...
Some of the writings of Catholic Pope Francis provide a hopeful breath of fresh air. He is at the cutting edge of thinking when it comes to environmental justice. Listen to this from his 2013 paper called Evangelii Guadium. “In this system, which tends to devour everything which stands in the way...
Who is paying for the American wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria? I’m not. Are you? I don’t think so. The answer is that your kids and grand kids and their kids will foot the bill. And let me tell you — the bill is a whopper. By the end of next year the price tag for American wars since...
Did Secretary of State Rex Tillerson call Donald Trump a moron in July? NBC television reported that he did and CNN says that they confirmed NBC’s reporting. When Tillerson was asked in an October 4th news conference if he used the M-word to describe the Commander in Chief, Secretary Tillerson said...
My friend Tim, rightfully, points out the words, white supremacy or white supremacist, are being tossed around excessively, since the election of President Trump. (One man’s perspective, L.P. Leader, 10-18-17) Excessively, is my word, not Tim’s.    We are treated to a good quote by a French...
