I got my first mobile phone in 1988 and have used them regularly for conducting business while driving, saving me countless hours in the office. Total number of accidents while talking on the phone or othewise – zero. If someone is not able to carry on a conversation with somebody while driving, he should not be driving in the first place.
It was a pleasure driving to and from work the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Little-to-no aircraft traffic and no school buses to contend with. Ahhh.
Never miss a local story.
To the person wondering why nonbelievers go on living: Why do you, as a believer, go on living? I mean, isn’t the afterlife supposed to be all that? You should be anxious to get there.
My hope and change didn’t include standing in an unemployment line.
President Obama is asking for another $1.2 trillion on the U.S. credit card. He is on pace to accumulate more debt than all other presidents combined. Yes, we can – borrow more and cut nothing.
Obama should station some of our returning troops along the southern border to stop illegal immigration and dope peddlers. But that might cost him some Latino votes, so forget that idea.
Could someone ask the Republican presidential candidates the following question: How old is the Earth?
Ron Paul is the resident “froot loop” for the Republican Party, as Joe Biden is for the Democrats.
The poor and elderly who might have difficulty getting a photo ID – not just felons and illegals – have something to fear from voting rules that would require one.
Rep. Mike Pompeo isn’t talking like a Populist (Dec. 29 Opinion). He is reacting as if he was lied to by Boeing. Then again, maybe now Pompeo knows what it’s like to be a voter who has been lied to by a politician.
Bush’s Iraq War was over when he whipped out his “mission accomplished” banner.
Our nanny government has now decided it needs to control the volume of commercials on TV (apparently they thought we weren’t capable of pushing the mute button ourselves). What’s next? Probably they’ll be passing legislation telling me how often I have to change my underwear. Oh, woe is me.
I don’t know where anyone got the information about government employees being able to retire at age 52, because it is inaccurate. Anyway, if you would like what government or Boeing employees have, go to work for them.
Collegiate School fans take their athletics a little too seriously. It was supposed to be a fun middle school basketball tournament during Christmas break. But by the way the Collegiate fans acted, you would have thought it was the NBA finals. That’s right, middle school.
I miss retired columnist Bob Getz’s Anchovy Awards. He would be having a field day with the current state of affairs. How about an Anchovy Awards guest column? Please?
