Medals for Entertainers’ Charade

Medals for Entertainers’ Charade

I don’t know where to begin, so I will write this blog the same way I have done my award-winning radio show for so many years: just start talking— except in this case to just start writing. Several things . . . no, many things rile me up! That is why so often I don’t [Read More]

Christmas Before Political Correctness

Christmas Before Political Correctness

It is the season and I am old enough to remember when this Christmas season was just that: the Christmas season. Now it is that time when everybody who is Christian, even the slackers who don’t go to church and haven’t gone to confession for ages, attend. They have not [Read More]

Whitman’s Sabotaged Campaign

Whitman’s Sabotaged Campaign

I see that we are witnessing the aftermath of the dirty tricks and dishonest campaigning of Democrats across the nation. Let us start with California. Why not? After all, California has always led the nation in lapsed morals and ethics. It is not the home of Hollywood for [Read More]

It’s Going To Be A Bumpy Ride!

It’s Going To Be A Bumpy Ride!

Thanksgiving 2010 has come and gone. And, before we know it, we will be saying the same thing about Christmas. Inevitably 2010 will be gone and 2011 is going to include a great deal of talk about 2012 and the next presidential election. I really don’t know why we have so [Read More]

Dancing with the Stars

My Naval Air Corps Service

My Naval Air Corps Service

I remember all too well what I was doing on June 25, 1950. I was working at WBBM, the CBS radio station in Chicago, Illinois. We had just received the news from our bureau in Tokyo, Japan, that the North Koreans, under the leadership of Kim Il-sung (president of North [Read More]

Royal Wedding: Do You Care?

Royal Wedding: Do You Care?

I don’t know how you feel, but I never hesitate in telling anyone exactly how I feel. First of all, let me get the unimportant stuff out of the way. I wish they would do a scientific poll on what percentage of the average American citizen really cares about the fact that [Read More]

Don’t Confuse Them with the Facts

Don’t Confuse Them with the Facts

This morning I chanced upon a man and his wife who must live somewhere in my neighborhood. I assume this to be true, because I encounter them in some of the restaurants and some of the shops I frequent. This morning it was in one of the finer shops which specializes in a [Read More]

We Are Depending on You the Voter

We Are Depending on You the Voter

Those of us who feared an Obama presidency have, unfortunately, been proven correct in our extrapolation of what his being in the Oval Office would bring. It has brought a worsening economy; it has brought a worsening foreign policy; it has brought a homeland security [Read More]

Third Wheel: Tea Party’s Rise

Third Wheel: Tea Party’s Rise

The rise in popularity of the Tea Party has a lot of people wondering if this party is a legitimate threat to the Republican and Democrat parties, or just Cinderella waiting for the clock to strike midnight (I’m siding with the latter). I’m not going to bore you with [Read More]
