Killer gas is just waiting

Unless the weather forecasts were completely wrong - and what is the chance that could ever happen? - you are dealing with cold weather outside as you read this. In fact there are chances that Kansas will get its first snow of the season today, and pretty much the whole state is seeing sub-freezing temperatures over the next couple of days.

Get ready for winter now

Many of us may have marveled at the "freak" snow storm that his the northeastern part of the country this past weekend, and we might have been complacent, had we forgotten that it wasn't all that many years ago that Great Bend had to cancel trick-or-treating due to our own Halloween blizzard.

To a great extent, it's been another of those years when Hollywood followed our sad, cultural direction towards victimization and darkness and away from creativity and entertainment.

Take your own advice

With the complicity of the TV talking heads, the current administration continues to be shored up. We are supposed to just look the other way over the worst financial condition since the one we solved by diving into World War II. We are supposed to play like the scandal involving the current administration and the deaths of law enforcement officers on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border never happened. And we are to pretend that Vice President Joe Biden is a senior statesman.

Just clean up after yourselves

Protest what ever you want, just don't break the law. And if you do break the law, take your arrest like a man and pay the consequences. If you don't want to pay the consequences, then don't break the law. But don't inconvenience the rest of us in the process.

Celebrating the fourth with fireworks is as American as apple pie, backyard barbecues and parades on Main Street. But, as much fun as it may be, they can also be dangerous.
