I was tired, it had been a long couple of days. The morning before, U.S. Central Time, I had departed from New Orleans. Then, via New York and Amsterdam, I had finally made my way to Helsinki. It was my very first trip to Europe. A colleague and I, representing our paper mill, which was purchasing some Finnish machinery, had arrived on Sunday, May 1, 1983, nearly 35 years ago now. It was May Day, a holiday in Finland that is the 4th of July, Cinco de Mayo, Christmas and Veterans Day all rolled into one.

    My passion will continue to be to make people think, bring up a bit of history now and then (I am of the opinion there is nothing new under the sun) and do my best to avoid baiting people. No doubt, I will fail at the last one, for it is such a delicious little tidbit in my otherwise mundane life.

    My dad was much better with his hands than he was in dealing with people. In fact, when in a previous column, I made unkind comments about his notorious people skills, Ferris Cummings, who lives on U.S. 50 in Paint Township, called me up to give me a bit of a scolding. But Ferris did not live with this man full time – I did!

    If you bother to look up the highest paid state employee in every state of the union, in most cases it is the football coach of the largest state school. These people draw down big bucks – big bucks to coach a group of desperate people who work for free.

    If you are in charge of safety training, you should spend time on safety attitude. So, safety is a financial issue, but it is an emotional, family and dare I say, spiritual issue, too. We must do better.

    History is my hobby and I have studied all the presidents, especially those since FDR. I thought it might provoke some comment to give you my rankings of them, to which I am sure you will add your own thoughts.

    ...Then, it was suddenly announced the roles were to be reversed. We sat on the pillows and the kids sat on the chairs. The psychologists started asking the kids about how their supervisors had done for the summer. You can see the setup coming.

    The striking issue in the Florida situation is that there were plenty of laws in place already. None of them failed to stop this carnage. It also appears one or more sheriff’s deputies failed to do their duty, too. So, let’s not blame the NRA, OK?

    As I started to school that fall, and was introduced to a much larger student body, little did I know that by the end of January, I would be at Marshall under the tutelage of Mr. Wisecup, where the seventh and eighth grades would be in the same room. Actually, I think the move to Marshall saved my sanity. I was not dealing well with the large student body at Van Cleve.

    For you online respondents to this column, please see if you can help me out here. What are your reactions and what are the deep-seated reasons for your reactions? And, please, don’t just spew the political line you always give me. If you and I will be honest with ourselves here, we have a chance of learning something new about how we think from these scenarios.
