Worthy to Print Column | Memorial Day Memories

Another Memorial Day has passed and I’m still here. A lot of the folks that I met are no longer with us. A lot of them are schoolmates that just got too old. I know I’m getting up there, but days like today allow...

When I worked in the newspaper industry, the obituary page was allegedly the paper’s most popular page, which, in my younger years, I found a little curious. Now I am — ahem — a little less young, I totally get it. These days I...

Funny Papers Again Column | A Merry Time at Mee

The next two week’s Funny Papers were about one-third written; they touched upon two subjects of which I had enough knowledge to write first drafts and then follow up with first-hand information. But a nagging little pain in my neck on Thursday morn had...
