There is something I have been curious about for a while now. It drives me crazy when I stumble across something that makes absolutely no sense. I feel compelled to find some sort of logic for the nonsense situations I stumble upon. This week’s mystery is… on-the-scene newscasters...

Humor really is the best medicine.

I think Erma Bombeck said it best: When humor goes, there goes civilization. A darling of the newspaper world for more than three decades, the late humorist gained great fame — and fans — for her witty, no-holds-barred opinions on life. I tend to agree with Erma, which is to say I...

Night terrors, fits of laughter and other great qualities

The other night, while lying in my “full”-size, four-post, antique bed, I had a very profound thought. I’m not sure that any woman would want to sleep in a full-size, four-post, antique bed with me.  One thousand thread count sheets be damned, I’ve got a real...

I’ve been writing this column for seven years now. And I will tell you it’s been the best experience of my writing career. All those years ago, I had this zany idea I knew was a long shot. But I went for it anyway. I called up Hal Brown (he had no idea who I was) out of the blue and...

Mickey Mouse and friends might not have made the cut by today’s standards.

I dropped by to see my daughter Cally the other day and to check in on my 2-year-old granddaughter, Riley. Like most kids her age, she’s started watching Disney Junior on cable because, frankly, she’s gotten too old for CNN. All of the cartoon characters are basically the same as when...

When you care enough to tell the truth.

I believe I have stumbled upon one of my most brilliant ideas ever! I’ve been feeling extremely cantankerous this week. Matter of fact, all I can really think about are things that annoy or anger me. That made me start thinking of creative ways to share my feelings with everyone. You know,...

A while back our publisher, Hal Brown, decided I was funny. Now I don't think I'm all that funny. I don't try to say funny things. Occasionally my brain-to-mouth filter fails, and I blurt out whatever random observation happens to be rolling around in my head. So Mr. Brown asked if...

L, M, N, Ohh, Pee

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the German-American architect who brought us such icon masterpieces as the Farnsworth House and the Barcelona Chair, has often been attributed with the statement “God is in the Details.” And while I make it a point to politely exclude myself from any...
