Farewell, friend Re: “OTB, so long, but not goodbye” by Jim Bucher; January 2, 2018; Vol. 15, No. 1 I can’t believe Jim Bucher is leaving! I saved Erma Bombeck’s articles about parenting to give to my kids someday, to show them how much I love them. I saved Buch’s columns to show my kids […]

An impressive job Re: “The high stakes of ‘Molly’s Game’” by T.T. Stern-Enzi; January 2, 2018; Vol. 15, No. 1. It would never occur to me to watch the movie “Molly’s Game,” because it isn’t a part of my usual viewing. T.T. Stern-Enzi isn’t tied to a particular aesthetic though, and that’s what makes his […]

Not that a solstice is truly […]

Why though? Re: “Ladies, and gentleman, and smizmars” by Sarah Sidlow; November 28,2017; Vol. 14, No. 48. I wonder what benefit there is in having gender on the id at all. Picture, name and DOB should suffice correct? And what is a federal ID besides passport? Soc Sec cards are not valid for ID. – […]

The real Cain Questions Sorry Mr. Landon, with all due respect, Herman Cain was not destroyed by the media; he was “done in” by his own self-inflicted wounds. His ego got the best of him.

A leftist county? It is not surprising that Child Welfare Services in Cuyahoga County removed a fat kid from his parents, because they were not doing enough to make him a skinny kid.  Cleveland and Cuyahoga County are run by Democrat, leftist politicians who are all about forcing everyone to live according to their edicts […]
