Eye to eye. Uh Oh. Somebody blinked!

I recall a childhood incident from school. In the 10th grade I encountered a couple of guys who fancied themselves as pretty tough. They had developed the reputation of "Bullies", taking advantage of younger and smaller kids in school. They swaggered about the school seemingly immune from any correction from school authorities or older and larger students. It was amazing. They bragged and pushed others around in the…

Scratchin' my head in wonder

You know, like everyone else in the world, I have been following this Syria deal. That maniac Assad murdering the citizens left and right and now using chemical weapons. "News" reports are shouting over 100,000 murdered by this creature. Whew! And, on the other side of the coin is our proud and bragging "president" with his "red lines". Long time ago he/it was all over the television, looking stern whilst reading his…

A short story about pride and honesty

I'd like to tell you a short story. A story about some guys who are very tall, who can and do look you right in the eye and you know, "These are the guys King was talking about. This is the kind of person I want living next door to me, sharing a beer with, grilling in the back yard".

Seems that in New Jersey there is a store whose…

The Pentagon has issued a paper or something and is indoctrinating the military regarding the nation's Founding Fathers. Seems they, the Pentagon, now views them, in their far seeing and Big Brother mind, as "EXTREMISTS" rather than that group of men who gambled their fortunes, future and their very lives on fighting and…

August 28, 1963

I remember sitting, watching thousands of people on the grass and around the Reflecting Pool in Washington, D.C., watching hundreds of people jostling one another around the Lincoln Memorial, around the bank of microphones. I remember sitting and watching as a man named King pushed through the throng and approached those microphones. I listened carefully to what he said and much of it made good sense to…
