SPOKANE -- Greetings from Spokane (“The Lilac City”), Washington.  As a former resident of La Mesa (I lived on University Place), I like to keep pace with goings-on in the Village.  When I heard that Boulevard Barber & Shave had come to town, I knew I had to try it.  So, last week on my Thanksgiving visit to see family in San Diego and La Mesa, I stopped by. …

Winter Is A Time Of Magic

LA MESA -- Nose pressed against the freezing window pane. Hands cupped around my eyes to shadow from the glare. The bite of the cold through the glass. I watched the first snow flakes of Winter drifting to earth. Its a great Saturday, but of course every…

Trade Places

Just read that a judge has decided that the City of Detroit may file for bankruptcy. After generations of corruption and theft by never ending Democrat administrations, after politician after politician, City Official after City Official has been arrested and imprisoned, after unions have sucked the financial life from the City, now the same Democrat administration has been enabled to duck out from under the…

Trust/Mistrust

For a very long time now I have been keenly observing and speaking about the events of the year, month, week and day, particularly those swirling about the government operations at all levels. As each tidbit arises I inevitably nod my head and mutter, "Yep. As expected", because almost everything we see is predictable.Yes, I know. What a towering cynical outlook.

Sometimes I find myself agreeing with another La Mesa Today member, "Batman", when he maintains that people have "Sucker" emblazoned on their foreheads. I try to put that aside as I follow the "News" events each day but again and again that image keeps creeping back. I watch as Japan suffers one of the worst storm events in recent history. Thousands of lives lost. Homes destroyed. A way of life severely impacted by…
