Gentlemen, start your salmonella

Maybe the news left you yawning over your nutritious breakfast, but it shouldn't.

Europe marches toward cliff’s edge

Freedom is a two-edged sword, in that it grants us the opportunity to destroy our own destiny should we make wrong choices. But it doesn't have to be that way, should we choose to learn from others' mistakes.

Future is not so clear

The political pundits and psychics – which most assuredly are almost the same if you look at many pundits' actual track records – are now making self-assured predictions or poking fun at psychic predictions.

Money is foreign to us

After a volatile 2011, the stock market is off to a relatively good start in 2012 - at least as I'm writing this - though I'm still plenty confused about my retirement savings.

Paul’s army won’t be easily broken

When Sarah Palin, during the post Iowa media spin feast, warned GOP leaders to not "marginalize" the Ron Paul supporters, she was looking ahead to the greatest challenge faced by whoever captures the nomination.

Life's incredible for Brent and Dan

This time last year, we wrote about Brent Tiede, a 1991 Great Bend High School graduate who had just received a new heart. The successful transplant was done at St. Luke's Hospital in Kansas City, Mo.

It's all about family

I write this final column for 2011 during a momentary and much-needed reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. When your family is spread across the country like pinpoints on a map, during holidays, your vehicle and body seem to be in a competition with each other as to which one will wear out first.

On Elizabeth Warren, the Bright Shiny Object

Elizabeth Warren continues to bedazzle people precisely because she's not running for president. If she were to actually run for president, her power to bedazzle would diminish in a flash. To quote the sage Bob Dylan, "What looks large from a distance, close up ain't never that big."

Lessons from Paris

After the tragic shooting at a provocative magazine in Paris last week, I pointed out that given the foreign policy positions of France we must consider blowback as a factor. Those who do not understand blowback made the ridiculous claim that I was excusing the attack or even blaming the victims. Not at all, as I abhor the initiation of force. The police blaming victims when they search for the motive of a criminal.

Cartoonists and Red Lines

Like blaming a rape victim for her "provocative dress," many press pundits blame the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists (and the Danish cartoonists before them) for crossing "red lines," and inviting trouble. In the past few days the small community of American editorial cartoonists have been getting calls from their local media, asking for comments about self-censorship and what subjects we should be forbidden to draw in a free society.

Resolutions I'm Looking Forward To In 2015

Usually over the period of 12 months, you get an equal balance of good days and bad. On the playground of the cosmos, the scales tend to balance out. But holey moley catfish, seems like last year the good days spent the bulk of recess time hiding behind the equipment shed next to the monkey bars, and the teeter totter hardly moved what with that fat punk-bad days, grounded on his end of the board throwing rocks at squirrels.
