Parting thoughts on 10th anniversary

The challenge: Oysters, no saltines

The History Channel recently had a feature titled "You Don't Know Dixie." It was a great production that explored our language, food, music, inventions, humor, vices, etc. I've been a lot of places in the South, and I've learned that we have broad experiences that may be very similar in some respects but will vary greatly in others.

Going back to a 'new' New York

I love New York. I love the sights, the sounds, even the smell of New York. As a 19-year-old girl from the Midwest, moving to New York City in 1986 wasn't merely an adventure, it was the equivalent of moving to a different planet.

Expectation of war now almost normal

I was just 11 years old on Sept. 11, 2001 - just a homeschooled girl on her way to an Iowa livestock sale to help her church provide the hot meal, beef and noodles (with a side of corn, of course). As a natural-born people watcher, I mostly just sat back and observed other's reactions. I had no reaction of my own.

A good idea on ethics

U.S. Middle East policy is a disaster

The 10th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history reminds us that we still have enemies who wish all Americans dead. America's actions on the world stage affect us. Now more than ever, we must determine how America should interact with Middle Eastern countries.

Restless? Then re-elect nobody

Bill White, the Big Canoe Tree Czar - he is the guy you had better talk to before you pluck a pine cone in the place - told me about a bumper sticker he saw recently that sums up the frustration many of us are feeling these days.

Here's to a great season

Area high schools recently marked the beginning of an annual rite of fall, one every bit as ingrained into our collective consciousness in the South as pumpkin patches before Halloween and the story of the Mayflower at Thanksgiving.

Figure things out along the way

Apparently there are things that confuse some people that are quite clear to me. And I'm not bragging that I have such superior intelligence, I just think that some other folks are having trouble with the square-pegs-and-square-holes concept. Tinker toys and Lincoln Logs are pretty self-explanatory.
