Chip Shots


Running Away, Outside The Main, HIIC And Gold

*Running from the president.  When I lived in Georgia, Governor Roy Barnes was not my favorite politician. He was too much of good-ol’-boy power broker/dealer for my taste. But I’d take 100 of him over Jimmy Carter, I must add. And he just went up a notch in my regard: When Barack Obama visited the Peach State, Roy […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Little Pun-ishment For You

*Lighten up, for goodness’ sakes.  Yes, we’ve been pretty serious for the past few issues of Chip Shots and Straight Talk. (And come to think of it, in This Week in History, too.)  So this week, let’s lighten up a bit. An alert reader told me that, because of the weak business climate, there will […]

Peaceful “Protest,” Obamacare’s Cost, Competition And A Great Job

*The most peaceful “protest” in years. Congratulations to the hundreds of thousands of caring, concerned Americans who gathered on the Washington Mall last Saturday, for Glenn Beck’s huge rally on behalf of God and country. Even the liberal media had trouble making you folks look bad. Not only were you the best-behaved gathering Washington has […]

Internet Searches, New York City, Gold And The Tea Party

*Don’t search for Cameron Diaz. At least, not on the Internet. Turns out cybercriminals love to play on our fascination with stars. According to tech security company McAfee Labs, your chances of getting a computer infection are one in 10 if you click on links for Cameron Diaz. Other names in the “most dangerous” category […]

Internet Post Looks Ahead

As I’m sure you’re aware, there’s an amazing amount of stuff on the Internet. Some is incredible, some is unbelievable (and rightly so); some is horrifying, some is downright silly. And some, like the items below, are anonymous. I don’t know whom to credit for this very clever look ahead, but I think you’ll enjoy […]

Channeling Dr. Seuss

*Dr. Seuss revisited. I wish I knew whom to credit for the following parody, which has been making the rounds on the Internet. Heck, I wish I were clever enough to have written it myself. But I’m not and I can’t find out who did. If you know, please tell me. In the meantime, enjoy […]

Divisive President, Funny Headline, Housing Crisis And Retirement Whiskey

*”Our divisive president.” That’s not my description (although I certainly agree with it). It comes from two top Democrat Party activists and insiders. In an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal last weekend, Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen wrote: “Mr. Obama has divided America on the basis of race, class and partisanship. Moreover, his […]
