  • Fightin' Words: Is LeBron or KD the better individual?

    So after LeBron's big 61 point outing against Charlotte, of course ESPN went into overdrive about what this meant regarding his status in the game. Then Russell Westbrook had to speak up after Oklahoma City's win over Philly, and now it's back on our minds once again: who is better, the King or KD?

  • The Common Good: The truth and the whole truth...........

    Before a 1951 Chevrolet Pickup was a classic antique, it was just an old truck and I had one.  It had belonged to my grandfather who had passed away not long before my 13th birthday.  We had cattle and all five kids did whatever was needed to help Mom and Dad.  As our older brothers and sister went away to college, my younger brother, Doug, and I took up the slack.

  • Good night Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are

    In 1940 as Jimmy Durante headed to the door of Coleman’s Restaurant in Calabash, North Carolina, he turned to 28 year old Lucy and with a smile said, “Good Night, Mrs. Calabash.”  For the rest of his life, until his death in 1980, every Durante appearance ended with his trademark phrase, “Good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.”

  • At last, parent resistance to collective standardized tests

    Huge numbers of students must take high-stakes standardized tests that may shape the rest of their lives. These tests, however, take no account of the differences among the individual students. For particular examples, the tests don't recognize the students' home lives, or the visual or hearing problems that have impeded their learning.

  • Whatever else happens, the issue is still jobs

    There was a lot to talk about when House Speaker John Boehner appeared before reporters recently for the first time since the holiday break. There are continuing fights over Obamacare. Immigration reform. Appropriations bills. The debt ceiling. The Democratic push for the president's "inequality agenda."

  • Saving the Sooner Sub for the Common Good

    In 2006, Pixar Animation Studios released the movie Cars and introduced us to Radiator Springs, an imaginary town along Route 66 that long ago had been bypassed by a freeway beyond the city limits. The characters are personified vehicles with names like Lightning McQueen, Sally Carrera, Mater the Tow Truck, Doc Hudson, Flo, Luigi and a whole host of other cars and trucks.
