  • Priorities are all out of whack

    The first week of the college football season finished up on Monday with Pittsburgh losing to Florida State and there were many exciting games between teams who could have something to say about the national championship.  
    All of this along with the Thorobreds winning for the second straight time against a Gallatin County team that was better than I expected them to be lead to an exciting weekend of football.  
    So what priorities are out of whack?

  • Drive-ins are so American

    Why  must it fall to strangers to remind us that we have cool stuff at home?
    As I mentioned in my column two weeks ago, my wife and I have hosted high school exchange students for the last five years. It has been a rewarding experience in many ways.
    Aside from the obvious pleasure of extending my familial connections to people across the Atlantic, I suggest that there is an even greater reward that comes from hosting a different student every year: They keep my world from becoming mundane.
    Case in point - The Drive-In Movie theater.
