We've been in our new house for three weeks and some folks have already found us. Several of the neighbors have brought by little nice things to say welcome back to the neighborhood. One dear friend brought by a container of beef stew. Some folks understand me very well. But the unwanted intruders came through a copper wire. They dialed a series of numbers causing my telephone to ring. Then, they proceeded to try to ...
There are orbiters in the space shuttle fleet that have fewer miles than some of the cars at our house.
I am on my soapbox today. I'm going to say at the outset that I fully understand that there are people who have serious allergic reactions to certain things and I appreciate that. I also understand that there are bad people in the world who will do bad things to others. Having said that, let me begin my diatribe for today. We have allowed ourselves to become a nation of people who are afraid of ...

The federal government spends a lot of time on labels. Getting a federally authorized label for something requiring one costs a pretty good sum of money. You have to hire a Washington lawyer, hold hearings, publish it in the Federal Register and do everything but stand on your head.

It is easy to blame television for a lot of things. We have seen many things that were once taboo become acceptable because we saw them happen on TV.
The folks in Hollywood seem to run short on ideas from time to time. They seem to thrive on remakes of old movies. I saw a story last year that said movie studios were looking at 50 potential remakes.
