Beneath three layers, I wore my 20-year-old Key West Green Parrot T-shirt (thank you, Doug and Susie Wagoner) today in hopes of feeling a bit warmer than my truck thermometer reading of 5 degrees. It didn't help, but I may wear it again tomorrow, anyway. There's something about a Key West State of Mind. The frigid temperatures, coupled with some similarly frigid brain cells, prompted this offering.

    Brown’s support for D.C. statehood shows his true ultra-left colors. Like others in his party, he is savvy enough to realize that D.C. statehood, while serving no additional purpose for the city, adds two more liberal Democrats to the Senate. The Justice Department has repeatedly concluded, under administrations of both parties, that D.C. statehood requires amending the Constitution. Don't do it.

    It's been said many, many times over the years by public information officers for the Ohio Department of Transportation, but I'll say it again: Slow down. Save a life, possibly your own.

    Even the ultra-liberal New York Times criticized the "career" politician (politics should never be anyone's career) this week for rushing through 40 executive orders in his first week – more than the combined first-week total of three recent U.S. presidents, including Barack Obama. If he keeps up this pace, he'll sign 8,320 executive orders in his first term. Talk about a dictatorial fascist in the making. That would shatter FDR's record of 3,721 executive orders.

    Some of my more conservative friends may disagree – and that's fine. But I'll stand by this: If the U.S. Congress had more Rob Portmans and fewer Nancy D'Alesandro Pelosis (like me, a Baltimoron by birth), it would be an actual functioning body on behalf of the citizens of the United States of America. As it exists today, Congress is a disjointed, disunited, disorderly house. (Inquiring minds may want to look up that last one – lest you miss out on the intended humor.)

    Last week, someone whose name I was happily ignorant of for the first 59 years of my life had a bit of a spasm on social media regarding a thoughtful and well-written column on our website by someone a lot smarter than I am. The usual threats were made. Frankly, for me, personally, I didn't give a damn. After 30+ years in this business, I'm not changing.

    The Dec. 20, 2020 edition of National Review is a 114-page commemorative publication, marking the fortnightly magazine's 65th anniversary. I'm still reading the insightful essays. However, one that begins on Page 107, "Adam Smith's Other Masterwork," by Boston College Professor Ryan P. Hanley is a gem.

  • Clarence Graham, 1931-2020: Remembering a titan in the newspaper profession
    Wednesday, December 30, 2020 6:52 PM
    I met Clarence Graham in the summer of 1990 at a bar and restaurant in Washington Court House. Three area newspapers were meeting to discuss a weekly football tab for the now-defunct South Central Ohio League, that included Jim Horne's Hillsboro Indians and Otis Wagner's McClain Tigers. Former publisher Phil Roberts and I rode together from Hillsboro to Court House. Along the way, Phil told me that among all Brown Publishing publishers, he had the greatest respect for Clarence Graham's editorial judgment. As a young sports editor, I simply put that information in my memory bank in case I might need it later on. I did.

    Joe Biden (er, JoeBama – pat. pending) recently said that his son, "Dr." Hunter Biden, was the smartest man he knows. Really? It seems that JoeBama needs to get out of his basement more often and meet a few people.

    This year, we’ll do our best to enjoy time with family, either in person or online, I suppose. I don’t participate in the “virtual” conversations. A man with no cell phone doesn’t belong in that world. And we will be truly thankful, thankful for our Savior’s birth, and thankful for our blessings. Isn’t that what Christmas is all about? Merry Christmas, everyone.
