  • In jam over Obamacare, Dems don't know which way to turn

    When it comes to Obamacare, many Democrats take comfort in polls showing a small majority of voters, or at least a plurality, oppose repealing the Affordable Care Act. To them, that proves the Republicans' do-away-with-it position is out of sync with voters as this November's midterm elections approach.

  • Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo and the Common Good

    The term “Spaghetti Western” is used to describe a movie about the American West but directed and produced by Italians and normally filmed in Europe. This motion picture genre has been around for more than 70 years.  Outdoor scenes are often shot in an area of Spain that bears a striking resemblance to the Southwestern United States.

  • Have Bazooka - will travel and the Common Good

    For seven seasons from 1957 through 1963, actor Richard Boone played a gentleman gunslinger named Paladin in the CBS television, Have Gun—Will Travel.  The storyline involved Boone’s character, a highly educated and cultured mercenary whose residence was the Hotel Carlton in wild-west era San Francisco.  Paladin’s business card intimated that he had no qualms about using his Colt .45 revolver or his single action Marlin rifle for hire, wherever his career would take him.

  • 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.

  • Fightin' Words: Bring shot clocks to the high school game, or face anti-basketball

    I'll never forget watching the Chickasha girls face Lawton-MacArthur in a tournament matchup earlier this season, but not for a good reason.

  • 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.
