Dispatches from Wolf Country — Robert E. Lee and Roy Moore

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Robert E. Lee and Roy Moore

 Let them ask What would Lee do? Kind of a dicey relationship with politics Don’t treat Alabama folks like they’re stupid! “Wondering what it’s coming to and how it got this far”–Guy Clark, Texas 1947   We’re here of course because Alabama has had kind of a dicey relationship with politics in recent decades. Luther […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Fifth Monarchy Man

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Fifth Monarchy Man

What force or guile could not subdue  Thro’ many warlike ages,  Is wrought now by a coward few  For hireling traitor’s wages.  The English steel we could disdain,  Secure in valour’s station.  But English gold has been our bane:  Sic a parcel of rogues in a nation!  But, pith and power, till my last hour,  […]

Review of “The Curse of the Coloring Book”

Having written a number of books over the years, I was asked to write a review of a new book written by Howard L. Hibbard, who having volunteered to serve in Vietnam, came home like many of us, to countrymen who turned their backs on those who answered the call to duty. Whether the call […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country–Maya Angelou and Morning Joe

Word Press asked, “What’s on your mind” this Black Friday morning?Two things, really: The wealth of premier league Rugby this weekend; and, oddly enough, the intersection between someone who probably have should been nominated as Poet Laureate and a recovering Republican Congressman who’s marrying a blonde, Democratic policy wonk — Maya Angelou and Joe Scarborough.

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Trump, like a kidney stone, will Pass

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Trump, like a kidney stone, will Pass

Anybody else got gallows humor thought about that coffee cup? We always figured that the presidents — from Washington to Obama — had a pretty good idea of what they were supposed to be doing and would try to do it. This guy? Not so much. No unifying theme except his ego, insecurity, greed, and pathological […]

Roy Moore: Guilty until you prove you’re innocent

Roy Moore: Guilty until you prove you’re innocent

The United States is the greatest country on earth. It didn’t just happen by accident. The Founding Fathers created an entirely different form of government that historians have deemed was “an experiment”. When America declared its independence from the English Crown by the submission of The Declaration of Independence, the type of government the citizens […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Tax Increases for the Middle Class

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Tax Increases for the Middle Class

Reagan, his sane advisers  and possibly Nancy’s astrologer became concerned… Rising tide might lift all boats, but not all boats rise at the same rate I remember waiting for my wife to get out of work on a wet, rainy evening in 1982, sitting in my VW Sirocco in a spring rain at Fort Huachuca, […]

Doubling down on stupid – NFL Players

Doubling down on stupid – NFL Players

After I completed my last two-part articles, The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part I and Part 2, I could not get the idea out of my mind that the NFL football players could be so stupid as to believe their success in reaching the NFL came about because they were oppressed […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Lay me down, in the cold ground

(Note At a time and place long ago, I became fascinated by and involved in Neurolinguistic Programming or NLP. It’s still around, and it has a lot of applications so it’s worth familiarizing yourself with it. But it has drawbacks, and people looking for ways to manipulate others should stay away. It can become the […]

The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part II

The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part II

We covered a lot of ground in Part I that addressed the NFL football players denigrating the American flag, disrespecting the National Anthem, and throwing mud in the face of the first responders who protect the American citizens from mayhem, crime, and anarchy – the police and law enforcement officers across the country. I called […]

The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part I

The NFL Players Association vs. America and American Values Part I

The current spectacle of the NFL football players denigrating the American flag, disrespecting the National Anthem, and throwing mud in the face of the first responders who protect the American citizens from mayhem, crime, and anarchy – the police and law enforcement officers across the country, is despicable and anti-American. Additionally, such behavior is tantamount […]

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Old Age Should Rage

Dispatches from Wolf Country — Old Age Should Rage

April may be the cruelest month, but this October has been an absolute nightmare, and I see no reason to hope it’s going to get better. The south continues to be targeted by a succession of hurricanes, and the Republicans are now planning a succession of attempts to lower taxes on the rich. Since Houston, […]

Liar, Liar, pants on fire!

Liar, Liar, pants on fire!

The definition of integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking. How do you apply an appropriate term to an individual who tells a blatant lie in front of 330 million people, and then tries to excuse his falsehood with even more lies? Has the American public grown so use to the […]

Williams helps dedicate Milton’s Veterans Memorial Park

Williams helps dedicate Milton’s Veterans Memorial Park

For a town that had a population of just over 1,600 in 1940, the list of names on Milton’s “Honor Roll” World War II placard in the newly dedicated Veterans Memorial Park fills one whole board, showing the deep connection the town has to military service.
