Pot or Not?

Recently, for the sake of research, I posed this question in Facebook: “Would making recreational marijuana legal in Ohio be a good thing or a bad thing. “. The results of my highly unscientific poll were interesting and varied. Respondents who I assumed would be against the drug were for it, and others who I …

Stronger Gun Laws?

Recently a link to a website was circulated on Facebook that encouraged one to sign a pledge for stronger gun laws that would “keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people and save lives”. This pledge means absolutely nothing. It has no substance and it has no purpose, other than the opportunity for the …

After Ferguson, Where Do We Go From Here?

I have been watching with growing concern as the events have unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri and around the nation following the announcement of no indictment for Darren Wilson over the shooting of Michael Brown.

On Memorial Day 2014

Yesterday, while en route to the cemetery to visit the grave site of my parents, I spoke to my grand-daughter about memorial day. She had a vague idea of what it is all about but no real clear understanding. This is probably to be expected of a 10-year-old child but demonstrates the fact that the …

There Is a Bug In The Butter!

The title of this blog has absolutely nothing to do with the article itself. I heard somewhere one should have a headline that will get the attention of the reader. So that was my intent.

How Memorial Was Memorial Day?

The grills have all cooled down, the hangovers are no longer hanging over, and most of us are back to work. However, since Memorial Day I have been wondering to what degree American’s have given of themselves in order to be memorialize annually by too much alcohol and burnt burgers.
