Forget CRT. It’s time for some good ol’ CDT!

Forget CRT. It’s time for some good ol’ CDT!

This whole Critical Race Theory (CRT) seems to be a spectacle in the making — a mud-slinging contest which could go on for years. So, why talk about it now? Why get bent out of shape for something “they” say “isn’t” taught in elementary and secondary schools? Why? It came to me the other evening, […]

It’s been an interesting few weeks!

It’s been an interesting few weeks!

As slow as 2020 seemed to be, 2021 is humming along unnaturally fast . . . yeah, I know, I know: time is time and it’s set at one speed. Figuratively, however, I gotta’ say the year is whipping by, especially the last few weeks. Working for the newspaper here kinda’ keeps me feeling young […]

Well, rats . . . Casa D’Rush takes a lickin’

Well, rats . . . Casa D’Rush takes a lickin’

You know, I really hate it when so-called “friends” mockingly remind you of what you should have done to prevent some catastrophe or another from happening. Yup, not a fan of the old’ wink-wink, “you know if only you woulda’ (fill in the blank), you woulda’ gotten away scot-free without a scratch.” Whatever . . […]

Rush, gulp, steps in to the CRT ballywhack

Rush, gulp, steps in to the CRT ballywhack

It sounded like the right thing to do — I mean, all the cool kids are doing it. And, as a super-hip, mod, groovy and sick individual I think it is my duty to follow the herd, to swim upstream with the salmon to their death, to boldly go where everyone else has already trodden. […]

Bunnies, chickens and pigs . . . oh my

Bunnies, chickens and pigs . . . oh my

I actually had a good time sweating last Wednesday. Remember ing the day, it was in the 90s, muggy and humid. I actually wilted a little bit while a smiling blonde dynamo, a whirling dervish . . . a big straw-hat wearing spitfire showed me around what was once the Baylis horse farm on M-15 […]

What dads really want for Father’s Day

What dads really want for Father’s Day

Okay, all you moms and kids out there, listen up. I am giving you ample time to get this correct this year. Father’s Day 2021 is two Sundays away. To make this the most successful Father’s Day in the annals of history — and to set the tone for fathers’ days to come, read and […]

Just me and my shadow?

Just me and my shadow?

So, for the last couple of weeks when we’re alone and sitting down we just get to pondering. We think about the meaning of life, the cosmos, lizard men, ancient aliens and how we all fit in this giant mosaic of colors. From our conversations an old kid’s song came back to us. It was […]

Sunny and 80 for Memorial Day?

Sunny and 80 for Memorial Day?

I asked a question in my headline, and I think it was an appropriate question, “Sunny and 80 for Memorial Day?” The answer, sad to say, is, “No.” Weather prognosticator Swami Don says this weekend while, reverent and solemn, will be kinda’ sucky (which also means it will be sorta’ good). According to my phone’s […]

I ain’t saying I am getting old, but in less than two weeks I will have been working for “The Company” for 36 years. “The Company” publishes the weekly newspaper in your hand, and its sister community publications, The Lake Orion Review, Clarkston News, The Citizen, Ad-Vertiser+Penny Stretcher, and The Big Deal. “The Company” at […]
