Harvard Law???

I received this email this morning from a lawyer friend of mine.  I thought it was a perfect “I Don’t Get It” item: “Obama wants to trademark ‘GI Bill’ so shady private schools won’t use the term to defraud veterans.  That’s the remedy?  You’re the government.  Pass a LAW —  Mr. Harvard Law — prohibiting […]


Alright, maybe I’m not the right person to be talking about fashion.  After all, if you look in my closet, you’ll see 97% black clothing, an itsy bit of blue for jeans, and a smidgen of lime green.  At this time of my life, I’ve adopted the Yul Brynner philosophy of dressing.  I wear black […]

I See Dumb People

I’ve heard of a lot of crazy things.   It seems as if some people will do just about anything to get high.  There’s, of course, huffing aka inhalant abuse, where idiots sniff all sorts of chemicals to get high. Now I’ve read that teenagers are drinking, yes, drinking, hand sanitizer for the alcohol!  According to […]

Taxpayer Spending Refuses to Die

Apparently, it wasn’t enough that  Democrat John Murtha made sure some $150 million taxpayer dollars was used to fund the Murtha Airport in Johnstown, PA during his lifetime as a Congressman.  Thanks to Mr. Murtha, who died more than a year ago, the airport now has a  $7 million air traffic control tower, $14 million […]

The Wizard That’s Oz

By:  R. Neil Kline Well the 2012 baseball season has sprung upon us like a field full of daffodils. With it, we have our first major controversy already just one week into the campaign. The Florida Marlins after years of political wrangling and lawsuits finally completed their new $360 Million ballpark on the site of […]


That’s one of the responses from a man standing in line at the welfare office.  If your stomach can take it, please watch this video.  Our country is spending money faster than we can print it and there’s no doubt in my mind that we’re heading in the same direction as Greece – a big […]


So, I turned on my computer the other day and what do I see on my news page?  Hollywood is remaking “The Thin Man” with Johnny Depp in the role of William Powell.  My jaw dropped because the six Thin Man movies are some of my and my husband’s favorites.  (He has them all on […]

And They’re Stilling Blaming Bush

I could probably write a column a day about how our government spends/wastes taxpayers’ money.  But this latest story is even more outrageous because they’re actually trying to blame President Bush for the waste. You’ve probably read that General Services Administration chief, Martha Johnson, recently resigned after the 2010 extravagant conference in Las Vegas which […]

Dumbbells Even in China

I usually reserve my weekly feature “I See Dumb People” to people in America but sometimes I read about something really dumb elsewhere around the world. This week’s entry involves a 17-year old teenager who sold his kidney so he could buy an iPhone and iPad.    I’ve read about and have actually seen a movie […]


Recently, I read an item in our local newspaper about a woman who overdosed on heroin at her home.  Her brother broke down the door to her bedroom where she was found unconscious and not breathing.  She was taken to the hospital.  Right around that same time, my husband brought home a flyer he got […]
