Citizens' participation and engagement in their own government are perhaps the greatest ammunition against secrecy. One way to do that is for everyday people to take up the cause. Otherwise, in the words of Thomas Jefferson, we get the government we deserve. On May 4, citizens did take up the cause. That's encouraging. But let's not forget the fact that public officials and the local media have tried to inform and enlighten along the way.

    When Kentucky Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear was introduced to present the winner's trophy to the colt's owner, he was greeted by a loud and well-deserved round of boos and catcalls from many of the 51,800 who dared attend an outdoor sporting event in the commonwealth.

    The bottom line is – for whatever reasons – a lot of people have decided they do not need a job in order to receive some form of compensation. In other words, the federal government has made life easier for would-be workers by paying them not to work. When the government incentivizes laziness, we get more laziness. Plain and simple.

  • When redbuds and dogwoods come together

    For the last half-century, give or take, I've had the southern Ohio pleasure of watching the change of seasons. By the calendar, each year begins with winter's hangover from the previous year. The coldest season soon gives way to spring, which passes the seasonal baton to summer, which, much to my chagrin, seems to surrender far too soon to autumn, which similarly throws up a white flag to winter in late December. And so it goes. Year after year. Season after season.

  • Rob Manfred got caught looking – and he's still looking; congrats to Coach Chris Veidt

    More years ago than either Coach Veidt or I care to remember, I was a younger newspaperman and covered Whiteoak baseball. My initial recollection of Coach Veidt was this: His teams had discipline, they hustled, and they were coached on the fundamentals of baseball. I liked that.

    As bad as the March 25 orchestrated presser was, the real issue is this: What now? Realistically, there are only two obvious options. Begin the transition to Kamala. Granted, that's been under way for months, but they may need to move up the timeline. The other option is for Biden to have a prime-time, sit-down, kid-glove interview with "60 Minutes" or "Oprah." My best guess is that before the powerful party players pull the plug on POTUS (how's that for alliteration?), they'll arrange for a TV special with Joe & Jill, coming down the hill to fetch a pail of political correctitude from the swamp.

    March 14-20 is known in the news media profession as Sunshine Week, or as I like to call it, the annual effort in futility that always gets lost in the midst of St. Patrick’s Day and the NCAA basketball tournament.

    It is beyond sad when at least two sitting members of the U.S. House of Representatives have demonstrated a total lack of respect for the Constitution which they took an oath to support and defend.

    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.
