What can happen when people get involved

I don’t like some surprises (like, when I open a bill and it is double what I expected.). I like some surprises (like when I check my lottery numbers and see that I’ve won BIG money — actually I am still waiting for this to happen). That said, I was oh so pleasantly surprised one […]

The readers write (some more) about what they read

Every so often I hit some readers’ nerves with a column. My column, the ever-lovin’ Don’t Rush Me, is a bunch of words thrown together in a certain order that, when read in said order, describes whatever it is I am thinking at any given moment in time — usually the moment I type. Some folks […]
