Let’s Sanitize Everything

Posted by mcm0704 on January 29, 2010 |

There must be something in the air that is making people over-react to things. First it was the school system in California pulling all the Meriam Webster Dictionaries because they contain words that are not age appropriate. Now a Virginia school system is taking a book off school library shelves for similar reasons. Apparently a […]

Purifying Merriam-Webster

Posted by mcm0704 on January 27, 2010 |

I guess it is a sign that the economy must be getting better because people are now focusing on other such important issues as what words are in the dictionary. This morning I read about a school district in California that has pulled all copies of Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary from its shelves and formed a […]

One of Those Days

Posted by mcm0704 on January 25, 2010 |

This has got to be one of the craziest Mondays for me in a long time. Had to take our Miracle cat to the veterinarian hospital this morning to get the plate taken out of the leg he broke last spring. The site had started getting infected, and I guess in the midst of all […]

Will we ever get it right?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 23, 2010 |

Yesterday I read a news report that thousands of victims of the earthquake in Haiti are trying to leave the capital city of Port-au-Prince because they are starving to death waiting for food and water to get to them. Residents of a nursing home are slowly dying on a street just a few miles from […]

Men are not perfect… says who?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 21, 2010 |

Here is some more humor from my friend Tracy Farr. All the feminists in the room need to get a grip. Enjoy…. It has recently come to my attention that there may be a number of things that we men do that drive “our women” absolutely bonkers. I’m not exactly sure what good can come […]

Farewell to Robert B. Parker

Posted by mcm0704 on January 20, 2010 |

As a fan of all the great stories penned by Robert B. Parker I am really saddened about his death. Not only did I enjoy his stories, which were never intended to be great literature, only a good romp, I learned a great deal about how to write. As did many other writers. Here is […]

Could We Find a Middle Ground?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2010 |

The state of Texas is in a flap about curriculum content for social studies and science classes. At issue is whether new social studies textbooks should include information about the religious influences on people who had historical significance. All of us who even faintly remember our American history know that religion and religious beliefs played […]

Dinner anyone?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 17, 2010 |

The other day when it was really cold — about 20 degrees, which is really cold for East Texas, a flock of doves found something good to eat out in my yard. I was working and happened to look out the window and saw the birds. At first I thought there were only a handful, […]

I’m feeling real secure over this

Posted by mcm0704 on January 15, 2010 |

According to a news story in the New York Times, an eight year old New Jersey boy is subject to extra scrutiny from TSA agents when he flies because his name appears on a “selectee” list. Najlah Feanny Hicks said her son, Michael Hicks, a Cub Scout who travels often with his family, has had […]
