Let’s talk things out in ways that unite us

Let’s talk things out in ways that unite us

If you turn on Fox News or CNN or have a Facebook friend who gets all of their news from either one of these “news” sources — or the extreme versions of each like Newsmax and MSNBC — you likely have seen issues that are “tearing America apart” and “destroying life as we know it.” Or so they would have you believe, even though their examples often are anecdotal — such as one school board meeting breaking into fisticuffs over “critical race theory” or one group of peace-loving Capitol tourists lambasted as terrorists just because they wanted to hang Mike […]

Snowflakes on both sides need to hold their taters

Snowflakes on both sides need to hold their taters

There are certain historic moments that no one can forget where they were when they heard the news. Last week we saw another such historic moment when Hasbro announced that it was dropping the “Mr.” and “Mrs.” from the Potato Head toy brand. Ultimately, they clarified that even though they were simply marketing the toy as “Potato Head,” the Mr. and Mrs. elements were not being removed.

I was advertising hard work for no pay, not exactly an easy sell. I got to speak with dozens of articulate, smart, seemingly […]

2018 — The year in PREVIEW

2018 — The year in PREVIEW

For many years now, I’ve published my annual Year in Preview in the print edition of the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer. However, the Ledger-Enquirer’s pages are filled with reports from legitimate journalists about what’s going on in Columbus and around the world — or as President Trump calls it, “Fake News! Sad!” I cannot afford to have my annual Year in Preview — which is not a bunch of predictions and prognostications about the year 2018 but an actual collection of soon-to-be-proven-true facts — associated with “Fake News!” This is too important. I’ve already run these by both Sarah Huckabee Sanders and […]
