Table manners MIA

With the advent of constant cell phone use and texting it seems that nice table manners have gone by the wayside. We are all now so anxious to have our say, talking with one's mouth full now appears to be acceptable.

Darkow cartoon disgusting

I see by the Sept. 17 political cartoon in the Opinion section, cartoonist John Darkow works the same way the Democratic Party does. When you cannot dispute the argument, use the race card. It's nothing less than an insult to all Americans. Disgusting.

How To Make Lemons Out of Lemonade

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.
