Two More of my Books

Posted by mcm0704 on December 12, 2009 |

I finally got around to adding covers for two of my other books to the side bar here on the blog. Hate to admit out loud that it took me a long time to figure out how to add items. You would think that someone who maintains a huge Web site WinnsboroToday.com would find all […]

Thinking About Government

Posted by mcm0704 on December 11, 2009 |

In light of the huge national debate on health care reform, I found a statement by Neal Boorz in his 2008 address to the graduates of Texas A&M University thought provoking. To put it in context, it was the part of his speech where he talked about individual rights as opposed to group rights. He […]

I just read this brief news item, and I had to pause to take a moment to absorb it all: Proposed legislation would impose the death penalty for some gay Ugandans, and their family and friends could face up to seven years in jail if they fail to report them to authorities. Even landlords could […]

Another Sports Idol Bites the Dust

Posted by mcm0704 on December 2, 2009 |

I kept hoping it wasn’t true. Even as the early reports of liaisons between Tiger Woods and “other” women first surfaced last week, I kept wishing it would all turn out to be false. I don’t care a whit about golf, but I have always liked and admired Tiger since he blasted onto the Pro […]

I Love Texas But….

Posted by mcm0704 on December 1, 2009 |

I’ll admit I love the great state of Texas. I love the beauty of the varied countryside and the great expanse of sky that hosts the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets. I love the whole mystique of good guys like Sam Houston and bad guys like Bonnie and Clyde. And I love cowboys and farmers […]
