REFLECTIONS ON REALITY SHOWS

 

Over the past several years, it has seemed to me that the folks who do the writing for television and movie land, have lost their creativity. I don't want to sound like Andy Rooney, (though personally I think an awful lot of the old curmudgeon), but, I wonder where the creativity has gone. Having grown up in what my children call "the icy stone age" I realize I had to contend with things like black and white TV, and transistor radios and when AM radio played...

Dear Editor,

When the Veterans of the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts returned home there were no welcome home signs or parades, due to the public sentiment against the wars at that time. So it was very encouraging to see that the troops returning from Iraq received the honors that they richly deserved. "Freedom is not free. God Bless ALL Veterans."

Thank you,

Bernard Wisniewski,
President, KOREAN WAR VETERANS ASSOCIATION INDIANA-CHAPTER 1

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, I have never liked Papa John's Pizza and for two reasons. #1-I don't like 'thick' crust pizza (carbs you know) and #2-I can't seem to communicate with people that have a foreign accent (I'm hard of hearing and can't keep up with someone talking fast with an accent. I have to try to figure out what they are talking about. I was never sure if what I ordered was what they were making for me to take home. Wayne didn't fare any better. Of course this was a...

Reflections on All Saints' Day And Election Day

 

"For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind. {18} But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight. {19} I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in my people; no more shall the sound of weeping be heard in it, or the cry of distress. {20} No more shall there be in it an infant that lives but a few...
