The poet George Elliston said, "How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it."
Sitting at a stop light thinking about the tragedy of 9/11, I noticed the truck in front of me had traded in its "BUSH/CHENEY" sticker for a "O: Worst President Ever" sticker, and it made me chuckle at the irony. It seems like Republicans are twisting themselves into denial knots over their previous golden boy's eight years.
Regarding Patricia Skinner Sulpizio's column "Boxer scores a knockout" (Sept. 7), in the first paragraph she writes: "Fiorina was markedly different. She frowned, glared and her eyes blinked rapidly."

WASHINGTON (AP) - People who use Facebook and Twitter are less likely than others to share their opinions on hot-button issues, even when they are offline, according to a surprising new survey by the Pew Research Center.
Jim Colorado, the famous soccer player, visited me last week. It seems while in Brazil for the World Cup, he reluctantly (quite reluctantly according to him) succumbed to the wiles of the shapely football (because in the rest of the world, soccer is called football) fan, Lola Palooza, a resident of West Covina, that hotbed of drama and intrigue.

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Ah, Burning Man, the annual weeklong rave that draws thousands of free-thinkers to a remote spot in the Nevada desert. It's a festival so remote and bizarre that the only limit to free expression is imagination ... and that dust that always gets into the electronics.
