Lion and the Lamb: Time for another health checkup
It's good for a nation to get a checkup periodically, to ascertain whether its inner organs are working together in harmony and whether there are any cancers or viruses threatening its health.
Tidbits: Sign me up for the vinyl revival
Before digital music made it possible to take your music with you everywhere; before those shiny compact discs offered crisp, clear reproductions of your music; before you would spend an hour winding a tape back into the cassette after it was eaten by your tape deck; there was vinyl.
Stumptalk: Understanding the cause of a problem
The first requirement when trying to solve a problem is to make sure you understand the cause of the problem. If you don’t understand the cause of the problem, you have no chance of determining what is needed to correct it.
GARY'S WORLD: Deep freeze mystifies everyone
We really had a cold spell here with snow and plunging temperatures that went down around eight or 10 degrees below zero. It’s the coldest I can remember it getting here in a long time.
It wasn’t just here, though. The temps from the northern states and a large section of the middle of the country and all the way down to Florida plunged. It’s been rough.

If you were at a grocery store this past weekend, you probably saw folks stocking up.
STUMPTALK: Solving the bullying problem
Discussions about bullies and bullying make news these days, and the conversation often focuses on public schools as if bullying is a new phenomenon there. Conversations also involve online bullying, about which I know little. I do know that like radios and television sets, computers have on-off switches and also a way to move easily from one site to another. Given that, one wonders why anyone would visit and then linger on a site where he or she is being mistreated.
We the People: Stop believing these myths
The Discovery Channel’s popular program, MythBusters, is amusing. It’s often fun to find our perceived notions proven wrong. If you get hit by a penny dropped from the Empire State building, it won’t kill you. It’s not big or dense enough — despite the long drop.
Lion and the Lamb: Duck on the griddle
Duck Dynasty had a winning combination in its A&E American reality television series—a show about a family that our nation had come to love. Its fourth season premiere drew 11.8 million viewers making it the most watched nonfiction cable series in history.
