The Supreme Court and baseball: You can’t just make up the rules

I have been an avid Kansas City Royals fan since boyhood. It has not always been easy, as the Royals have made the playoffs only twice since 1985. This year is sadly typical by Royals standards. They currently have the third-worst record in all of Major League Baseball (MLB). My love for the organization continues nonetheless. Published July 6, 2022

The Supreme Court: Worst case scenario

Nine Justices sit on the United States Supreme Court. Whenever a sitting justice either voluntarily retires or passes away, a vacancy on the court is recognized. The President of the United States nominates someone to fill the vacant seat, with the advice and consent of the US Senate. A nomination to the Court is considered to be official when the Senate receives a signed nomination letter from the President. Once the Senate has held hearings and investigated the qualifications of the nominee, they vote and if a majority is in favor, the person is approved and takes his or her place on the highest court in the land.

Vacation in the Middle East? Absolutely yes.

When many Americans hear a generic reference to "The Middle East" their immediate impression may be one of war and/or challenging circumstances. The last two U.S. generations have heard endless tragic stories of American hostages, "death to America" chants from Iran, the war in Iraq and a never-ending dispute between the Israelis and Palestinians. The impression of trouble in the region runs deep. Published June 6, 2022

When Biden and Pelosi served in Congress during the Roosevelt administration

When I was a child my parents knew a woman who would come and stay with my brothers and sisters and me on the extremely rare occasion that both my Mom and Dad were away at the same time. Mom was a full-time Mom so this nearly never occurred, but once in a blue moon, my parents would allow themselves a romantic getaway from their five children. The woman who watched us went on to her eternal reward long ago but out of respect, I will not call her by her real name. For this column, she will be Margaret. Published May 19, 2022

Demonstrators protest outside of the U.S. Supreme Court, Friday, May 6, 2022, in Washington. A draft opinion suggests the U.S. Supreme Court could be poised to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a Politico report released Monday. Whatever the outcome, the Politico report represents an extremely rare breach of the court's secretive deliberation process, and on a case of surpassing importance. (AP Photo/Mariam Zuhaib)

America has a stalker: The Democrats

Merriam Webster defines the word Stalker as "a person who pursues someone obsessively and aggressively to the point of harassment." Stalkers have often experienced unrequited love, that is, having feelings of affection, real or imagined, for another that are not returned. Often the stalker begins with gentle, loving gestures such as flowers and sweet words, but when the object of their affection isn't open to his or her advances, the stalker is stunned and hurt.

Biden’s oil fix is like teenage binge drinking

Roughly forty years ago, while enjoying the various relatively innocent components of my high school years including Student Council, JV Basketball and Speech Club, I had a surprisingly deep conversation with a close friend who had managed to develop a habit of drinking alcohol to excess nearly every weekend. I couldn't understand the appeal of such reckless behavior and shared my concern. My friend explained that the buzz provided by the booze helped him escape his perceived problems, at least for a few hours. I remember staring him straight in the eye and earnestly asking, "...but aren't the problems still there when you've sobered up?" Published April 1, 2022

Old dog, new tricks: Lessons for Joe Biden amid sky high gas prices

Donald Trump's final year as President was 2020. The average closing price of oil that year was $39.68 a barrel. The year before that it had been 56.99 a barrel. At one point this past week oil was trading as high as $138 a barrel. That's a ridiculously steep increase, a huge hit on every Mom that drives her children to school, to every truck driver delivering food to your local grocery store and to every delivery of all those items Amazon drops on your front doorstep.

Science says natural immunity is better than the vaccine. I told you so

There is an old phrase out there among those who like to smugly remind you they were right all along that goes something like this: "I don't mean to say I told you so, but..." which is inevitably followed by gloating that they were indeed correct all along. Published February 7, 2022

Omicron variant may be good news

The Omicron variant of COVID-19 is among us and spreading rapidly. Is it time to panic? Is it time to run home and hibernate, donning a face mask and rubber gloves any time one interacts with family? From many of the media reports and from the doom and gloom forecast of President Biden, one would think so. Yet statistics and science tell a different story. Published December 23, 2021
