Tim Myers: Myers Musing: Term limits or not? That is the question

One of the great benefits of having young adult children in college includes the benefit of receiving their textbooks when they finish their classes (resale is a joke) and updating myself on the changes that occurred since my own college days.

Dealing with gridlock

If these freeway stoppages become any more frequent, I propose installing vending machines and an Andy Gump portable toilet on the freeway aprons every half-mile to ease our pain. Wi-Fi wouldn't be a bad idea, either.

Bravo to Judge Walker

Thank God for the so-called "activist judge" who had the courage and good sense to affirm the U.S. Constitution's most basic premise, that all citizens are subject to "equal protection under law." This idea is so important, it is written across the very entrance to the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.
