Too often you hear a radio dj (are they still around?) say about a trac they just played “Timeless.” However this term is bandied about like other terms that are used frequently. “Superstar”,and “Icon” come to mind.…Continue

As a baseball fan, I’m well aware that emotions can run high especially during
the playoffs. However that doesn’t mean that assaulting and seriously injuring
a fan that roots for the opposition is permissible.
In fact it’s downright disgraceful.
By now if your following the NLDS involving the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dogders, you know that a Mets fan was nearly killed on Friday night following the game.

Yesterday with its lone ally throwing in the towel and the book, the UN approved sanctions on North Korea 15-0. As in days of old, if sanctions were placed on an…Continue

Today’s tragedy didn’t make any sense at all. What do 20 innocent children in Newtown, CT have to with a deranged individual is beyond me. This could have happened to my children back in the 80’s and 90’s when they were in school. It could…Continue

In 1972 when then Democratic Party candidate Senator George McGovern ran for the Presidency, he had assembled a small group of supporters. This group consisted of Labor, Students, Women, Minorities, and LGBT. It was small back then, however…Continue

This morning I received word that a music teacher at Cherry Knoll Elementary School in Traverse City decided to change the word "gay" to "bright" in "Deck the Halls" for the children's Christmas concert.
What kind of bu-s—t is that?
This is similar to an attempt last year to remove references to the N word in future editions of the Mark Twain classic “Huckleberry Finn.”
Long before the word gay was…Continue

As a baby boomer, I can recall when my mom and dad would go to the stores early on Saturday because at 6:00 PM they would close until Monday morning.
No super markets, no department stores, zilch. Except for a candy store, or a mom & pop grocery store, that was it.
Sunday was a family day.
A day to enjoy.
All of this was possible due to a thing called the “Blue Laws.”
What were the “Blue Laws?”
In Henry Taber's Faith or Fact, he…Continue

Not So Far Fetched as Before -Pedro Baez
A community advocate and friend, Morris Griffin AKA Big Money Griff has been campaigning for manufacturing jobs to leave China, Bangladesh, and any other foreign port that they may have gone for quite a while.
Many have said it will never happen.
Funny thing, it may happen now.
Today’s global report listed China as the nation where deficit, after deficit is occurring faster than its bullet train, that alone is bleeding it…Continue

It had to Be
When word came that Joe Paterno knew of the sodomizing and lewd behavior by defensive coach Jerry Sandusky and reported it to university higher ups, technically he followed university procedure.
However rather than to cover it up, he should have accompanied Mike McQueary to police headquarters and reported the incident. He then should have called a press conference to announce to the world of what happened and if he did this he would be a hero, not…Continue

This is too Much
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever see this:
Two stories involving sexual harassment and child molestation involving two well known figures in the public eye in the same week yet.
First let’s start with Herman Cain. Now that Sharon Bialek has come forward this is not something that can swept under the rug. This is very serious. And before you say that famed LA based attorney Gloria Allred is seeking publicity, that…Continue
