Communities and how they get their info

It’s kinda hard to think back to a time when social media has not ruled our lives (some will say “ruined” our lives) and shaped our reality. Really, it’s only been a less than 20 years since members of Facebook groups like the Hot Moms of Oxford, or the Smarmy Disenfranchised Whiners of Clarkston of […]

My “crowning” gridiron accomplishment

My “crowning” gridiron accomplishment

  You know, like many a Michiganian I love this time of year. Drive up and down our local roads and you can see the leaves turning orange. You just know it’s gonna’ be beautiful soon. And, while I love this upcoming season, I also kinda’ hate it. It’s the time our Detroit Lions get […]

Opinions are like noses . . .

Opinions are like noses . . .

I shouldn’t surprise anyone alive in the western world today, if you put your own opinion out there someone else is gonna’ take a dislike to it. I’m certainly not surprised. I am always surprised, however, at the severity of commentary folks throw back when they opine on someone elses’ opinion. These days, if people […]

County takes the low road

County takes the low road

I don’t get this way usually. Normally, I’m kinda’ a sit back, watch things unfold, shrug my shoulders because I cannot do anything about nothing kind of guy. But, today, and yesterday and the week that was this past week got me angry. I’m mad. Disgusted. Outraged. I’m incredulous. I am shaking my head back […]

The wild, icky world of cockroaches

The wild, icky world of cockroaches

I’ve ridden round enough revolutions of this earth that I am pretty confident in my abilities. I lived, loved, laughed and cried. I’ve survived lows and highs. I can even walk alone at night in a deserted building and not be too scared. However, at this point in my life, I also know Clint Eastwood […]

‘Ribeye of the Sky’ draws their ire

‘Ribeye of the Sky’ draws their ire

A couple of weeks ago I typed up another ever-loving Don’t Rush Me column which woke some readers up and pushed them to write. Originally published on July 17, Flying dinosaurs are walking our streets (Click Here to Read) documented my own fascination with what some scientists claim to be the oldest living bird species, having […]

‘Take me out to the ball game . . .’

‘Take me out to the ball game . . .’

I squinted my eyes as I looked out to the western sky. The sun was still relatively high in the early evening hours, but working in earnest on its descent. The temperature was still close to 90, oppressive out there next to the field. Dust blew into my face on the heat-filled wind. “Batter up!” […]

Flying dinosaurs are walking our streets

Flying dinosaurs are walking our streets

Oh gosh. When was it, 1999? Yeah, I think that’s about right. Twenty years ago, I remember first hearing strange and prehistoric sounds from above the yard at Casa D’Rush. Then seeing about a dozen big birds flying over my yard. Phonetically putting the pieces together, the word “teradactyl” swooped around inside my head and […]
