Veterans day 2018

November 11, 2018

Today is Veterans day, a day where we honor those who have served in the United States armed forces.

By the way the official spelling does not include an apostrophe.  The day does not belong to the veterans but instead is about them.

Memorial day is a holiday in May where we honor those who died while serving in the United States armed forces.

Armed forces day also occurs in May.  It is a day where we honor those currently serving in our armed forces.

I thank all of our veterans.

Freedom is not free.


Disagreeing politely

I write this note before the polling places close.

I hope that regardless of the outcome we can return to civility in our discourse.

We deserve better

Sampling the goods

As part of the agreement with Great Wolf the city actually requires them to do certain things, like this:

Evidently the city will get 100 complimentary room nights each year.

It will be interesting to see who gets to use them.

We deserve better

Don’t plan to go to the new water park.

If you look up the Great Wolf Resorts on the web you will see that the water park is “Exclusive to resort guests”.

We deserve better


Don’t talk to me

October 25, 2018

I saw a business card on the asphalt of a parking lot in a strip mall the other day.

After picking up the litter I saw evidence of a new phenomenon.

The card listed a telephone number and under the number “texts only” was printed.

We deserve better
