The McDonald’s Effect

Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonald’s, was born 108 years ago this week. The onetime milkshake machine salesman was born on Oct. 5, 1902. Today it is almost impossible to grasp how huge the company he founded has become. McDonald’s has some 15,000 restaurants in this country, with 85 percent of them owned by franchisees. […]

Honoring Our Country’s Flag

Do you live in a community of flag flyers?  I’m happy to say that I do. Several of my neighbors fly the Stars and Stripes proudly every day of the year. My immediate neighbor has his up shortly after dawn and takes it down solemnly every night at dusk. Read this article to learn some flag etiquette and why you should fly the flag… 

In Memoriam, Obama’s Omission, Political Arrogance And Investment Advice

*A request worth repeating.  Rest in peace, Donald C. Unsworth of Rome, Ga. While we never met, I know I would have liked you. How can I tell?  By this notice for your funeral: “In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully asked that donations be sent to the American Cancer Society or to the campaign of whoever […]

It’s A Duesy!

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard anyone say “It’s a doozy!” when they were describing something truly remarkable. And no wonder. The car that inspired the phrase has not been made for seven decades. It was on Sept. 30, 1937, that the very last Duesenberg rolled off the assembly line. At the time, […]

Farewell To Newman, Oil Spill Lies, On Hold And Government Payments

*Farewell to “a tart-tongued grammar guru.”  Until I read about his death a few days ago I didn’t realize how much I had missed the delightful repartee and word play of Edwin Newman, the longtime NBC contributor.  If you love language, go to your local library and pick up a copy of Strictly Speaking: Will […]

It’s the Spending, Stupid

Now there’s a message I hope you’ll see and hear a lot between now and election day — on bumper stickers on the backs of cars, in email messages and letters to the editor, on radio talk shows and a hundred other places; including in front of every polling place in the country, if that were allowed. Read this article to learn how it is the spending, stupid… 

“I Have Not Yet Begun To Fight!”

There are many things wrong with public education in this country, as we all know. But one thing that’s almost never mentioned is how little young people today learn about many of the heroes we were taught to admire. If you want to see evidence of this play a word-association game with any teenager you […]

Some Highlights From A Trip To London

*One for the record books. During a trip to London last month I managed to earn a place in the Guinness Book of World Records — for a day. And the interesting thing is you can do it, too. How? By attending a performance of Agatha Christie’s wonderful mystery, The Mousetrap. It’s the longest-running play in the […]

Do You Really Know The Constitution?

Today is Constitution Day — a day specifically designated by an Act of Congress when Americans are supposed to honor the remarkable document that created our system of government. The act that created Constitution Day mandates that all publicly-funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day. Here’s a little test to see how well the schools have done… 

The Star-Spangled Banner

Just 18 years after President George Washington wrote his “Farewell Address,” the United States found itself at war once again. In September 1814, a British fleet under Sir Alexander Cochrane began bombarding Fort McHenry, outside Baltimore, Md. The fleet would later sail up the Potomac River, attack the new capital at Washington, D.C., and even […]
