I’m planning on being away for a few days soon so what better time to do some sweeping?
I follow the COVID numbers religiously. Some, including my wife, might argue too religiously. Many Americans are talking in terms of post-pandemic. I say it’s way too soon and we may be nearing a crossroads.
There were some godawful candidates in 2022. Most lost. Unfortunately, a few of them slipped through and were elected. This may not be the biggest political story of the week just ended – as my Sunday articles most often are about – but I’d like to talk about five very talented ladies who won and we should be grateful for their service.
I’m not the biggest fan of Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, in contemporary America it has morphed into a day of football and feasts featuring turkey. No longer is it a celebration and opportunity to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. I’ll try and adjust that attitude a bit in the paragraphs below.
Last weekend the big news was the 601st mass shooting of 2022 in America. I didn’t major in math in college but that is about two a day on average. America has a gun problem and we are doing way too little about it. America has a gun culture which is difficult for much of the rest of the world to understand. I accept that, and in some ways am part of it. That doesn’t mean we must have a gun problem. The two are not mutually inclusive.
