Texting ban is the ‘fuzzy dice? of modern law

So, by the time this column “hits” the streets, 21 days will have come and gone since the brainiacs in Lansing passed a law banning the practice of texting, “while operating a motor vehicle that is moving on a highway or street in this state.” Ever the pain in the posterior, before 8 a.m. this […]

I’m still seeing green

As I write, I can see green spots. Let me stop you right there . . . no, the green spots are not related to pink elephants. But, now that I have your curiosity piqued, let me continue. As a modern man (notice I did not say metro-sexual man, which is another type of modern […]

A little ‘I love you? goes a long way

Sometimes it is the little things that can make a person smile for a long time. The other day I got one of those great gifts from our little four year old son, Sean. I sat down with him on the floor to play a video game (I believe the name of the game to […]

It’s a wrap and some wrap-ups

For the past month, I have delved into the bright lights and high fashion world of TV. I have started shooting Don’t Rush Me: Th-e-e-e-e Show! Well, it’s sort of like a TV show, but it ain’t. It’s really an internet show shot at our new ‘TV? like studio for our family of 411.com sites […]

From the suckee to the sucker: Scram!

We media types love (with a capitol LOVE) it when a ‘new? disease is discovered somewhere in the world. It has probably been that way since the beginning of the modern era of journalism. When I first tried my hand at writing ‘Don’t Rush Me? (about a quarter-century ago) the ‘newest? disease was AIDS. There […]

It just ain’t Halloween without snow

When I harken back to those joy-filled days of my youth, my recollections of Halloween are sketchy at best. I admit, I find this kind of disheartening because I like to think my memory is razor sharp. And, while I’m still holding to my belief of a good memory, I’m putting an asterisk next to […]

ARRRRG! I hate politics, governments, et al

I can tell this is gonna be a rough period in my life. I can see into the future and behold a time of turmoil, grief and — oh yes, election time politics. I hate politics. I don’t trust, admire or really like politicians and their bureaucratic brethren who run government. I also feel very […]

Sometimes questions need asking

As the presidential debates ended last week (thank goodness), I’d like to say this: Debate is good. The free exchange of information is good, even if the information is bad. Bad is good? How can this be? How can bad information be good for folks? Well, easy (in some skewed sense of logic possessed by […]

It’s all the rage: cumalitive voting

I didn’t believe it when I watched a local FOX News video. It had to be a joke. And, I guess it still could be — but the more I looked into it, the more information I found to back up that ‘one-man, one-vote? could be a thing of the past. So the story went, […]
