  • When I was growing up, one of the phrases I heard frequently from my parents was, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”  
    Parents should still be teaching this. I am saddened by the way words have been used in our culture for quite some time.  
    For example, the political races of today showcase people who use their words to belittle, intimidate and attack their opponents and others, instead of using them to tell us what they themselves really stand for, or to speak peace or reconciliation.

  • Every weekday at noon I post a question of the day on the Chronicle’s Facebook page.
    Sometimes it’s a fun question about food -- everybody likes food. Sometimes it’s about a local or national issue.
    The questions are meant to get people engaged with the newspaper, although sometimes they get people enraged -- with the paper, with each other, sometimes with me just because I asked a question.
    If I know one thing about human nature it’s that people love to be offended and they love to feud, take sides, lob bombs and throw mud at others.

  • The other day I found an old, yellowed and brittle newspaper cartoon that I had cut out and saved.
    Dated from 1987, it’s a drawing of a woman sitting in a wing-back chair holding her knees with her feet tucked underneath her.
    The caption reads: “This year’s Irrational Fears Grand Champion worries, from her home in Madison, Wisconsin, about being caught up in a deadly lava flow.”

  • Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a concert with my wife at Riverbend. These were tickets she purchased in February but the concert, featuring one of my favorite artists, Rod Stewart, did not take place until August.
    What a way-above-average gift Anna shared with me. As we were parking prior to the concert, I noticed a couple walking in front of our car. I then did something I should not have done.
