Funny Papers Again Column | This Just In: Sacramento Lawmakers Scuttle Local Columnist

For today’s column I cite Joe Mathews as main source. Joe writes the California Connected column for Arizona State University’s publication Zocalo Public Square (which is redundant as a zocalo is a public square, but I digress). Instead of taking a dramatic approach where I...

Worthy to Print Column | Presidents Day

So today is Presidents Day. Well, it is as I am writing this. I can remember when I started to understand what a President does in the four years, or more, that he serves. I remember some Presidents that were older than me and...

Guest Column | Separating From Stuff Is Difficult, but Making a Difference Is Easy

February is the month of love, and certainly not the time to talk about breakups. But when it comes to separating from all the “stuff” in your life, the familiar refrain, “It’s not you, it’s me,” rings true. Editing might be a little painful, but...

Funny Papers Again Column | From Loop to Loop: Roads We Once Drove

Funny how the mind works. Today I was blankly sitting in front of my laptop with no idea what to write about, tuned to KCBX, the local NPR radio station, when a report from Chicago mentioned the famous circular downtown roadway known as the...

Worthy to Print Column | Never Give Up

How about that Super Bowl! Did you get to watch it? I can’t remember the last one that I have watched, but this one was really a good show. Lorraine and I enjoyed ourselves just hoping the best team would win. You know what? The...

Window on the World Column | The Gammy Leg

“You’re limping again,” he said (again). “YES! FULLY AWARE AGAIN OF THE FACT I’M LIMPING. DON’T MENTION IT ALL THE TIME!” (I don’t think he will for a while.) I’ve had a gammy leg, as father would say, for over six months now. When you...

Funny Papers Again Column | Me, Sir Richard and the Third Time Charm Rule

According to English language experts, the phrase “Third time the charm” dates back to the 1800s in Old Britain when the number 3 was thought to be fortuitous, and whenever it appeared at a significant time in a person’s life, it would bring good...

Guest Column | Let’s Not Neglect Our Real Hearts This February

We all live in a brainiac world, to be sure, but the heart remains the emotional, spiritual center of our being. It’s still such a symbol of love and emotion, with our language sprinkled with metaphors invoking the heart as the source of empathy,...

Worthy to Print Column | Pants on Fire

Liar, liar, pants on fire! Have you ever heard those biting words as a child? Maybe it was just a schoolyard taunt by someone you didn’t get along with. Perhaps it was a case of “The dog ate my homework.” And your teacher was...

Window on the World Column | The Soup Diaries — A Work of Love

There’s something about being an author that is very addictive. Sometimes you can be midway through the tedious proofing of a manuscript — most writers’ least favorite thing — and already be working on the plot for the next book. Sometimes — as is the...
