How to talk to a French pig

How to talk to a French pig

Yeah, the nightlife of your hero (that would be me) is quite exciting if not down-right enthralling. After watching Jeopardy at 7 p.m., things really start ramping up for one Dandy Don Rush. Because I’m the quintessential renaissance man, I have options available to me that maybe mere mortals do not. Gender, I reckon, does […]

When guys have ‘baby showers’ Part 2

When guys have ‘baby showers’ Part 2

So, there I was last week minding my own business, comparing the differences between a baby shower and a diaper party asking poignant questions, and weaving a story of words to capture reader attention about an event I had attended, when I had a thought: I really need to cut my lawn. As of this […]

When guys have ‘baby showers’

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know, I know. I am old. I have white privilege (to go along with my fast whitening hair and beard). Yup, I am the Neanderthal Philosopher and so I don’t get a lot of what’s hip, cool and accepted these days. I get it. But . . . . . . […]

Flowers are budding and other such stuff

Flowers are budding and other such stuff

This is a pretty, gosh-darned groovy time of the year. The whole “life renewed” stuff really gets the blood rolling. Makes a person want to get out and do something. Unfortunately, I haven’t been that person. I’m still waking up from winter and have difficulty rolling outta’ bed. And, while it is only the middle […]

To work or not to work, that is the question

To work or not to work, that is the question

One of the chores I have added to my job here at your community newspaper is Head Promoter. In that capacity I, on occasion, will take a picture of one of our pages and post it on social media. Last week as I perused our printed pages, I noticed there were quite a few Help […]

Hey, Michigan. What’s up with unemployment claims?

Hey, Michigan. What’s up with unemployment claims?

Heard from a number of folks after I wrote about the Oxford Township man who, over the course of the past year, had received a crap ton of letters from the Michigan Unemployment Insurance folks. For those who didn’t read last week’s Don’t Rush Me (shame on you!), let me recap. In a nutshell, this […]

From ye ol’ mailbox (es)

From ye ol’ mailbox (es)

Before I delve into what the headline suggests I should do . . . read with interest this weekend about the World Happiness Report . . . and I cannot help but think, “What did that cost?” And, “Why do we need that?” And, “Do you know this report comes from Stockholm?” And, “Don’t you […]

Well, what should we talk about?

Well, what should we talk about?

Many Americans, myself included, will receive some sort of stimulus check from the taxpayers of these here United States. It has to do with the president’s $1.9 trillion COVID bill. Individuals will get something shy of $2,000. As I type, my $1,400 payoff is noted on my account balance as, “Pending.” And, while I am […]

Welcome to March 2021!

Welcome to March 2021!

I was looking back at old editions of the paper, in particular back to March 2020. Holy Crap, it has been almost exactly one year since we started reporting on this “new” virus sweeping the globe. And, as the year moved on, the news across the country kept on getting uglier and uglier. Lockdown, virtual […]

Apologizing for everything.

Apologizing for everything.

It’s time to come clean. Spill the beans. Make amends. Apologize. I admit it. In this crazy — no, lunatic — times we live in, I have come to the conclusion the only chance I have not to be “cancelled” by the “progressive” people out there is to get a hold of and control my […]
