"Ods bodkins. Methinks thou hast hoisted a stupendous undertaking, hopefully not on thine own petard. This above all, to thine own self be true and beware of puckish pranks.  I hope you get an SRO audience."

Branson, Missouri - An Enigma?

Posted on May 31, 2015 at 11:00am 12 Comments

Branson, Mo. is the fifth most visited tourist destination in the United States. Located in the southwestern part of the state and home to all of about 10,500 inhabitants, approximately 8,000,000 people visit Branson every year. However, when I told a friend a few weeks ago that I was about to spend a week there with a fellow widower, he asked, "Where is Branson, and what's there to see?"

I replied that I would see some of the shows I had missed on my two previous visits, the first in…

Do Teachers Make a Difference?

Posted on May 13, 2015 at 4:00am 6 Comments

The arrest and subsequent death of Freddie Gray has dominated the news for quite some time. Although we have made enormous racial progress since the March on Selma fifty years ago, it is evident that President Obama's and our hopes for a post-racial society are being dashed by a number of acts of violence perpetrated by police, and attempts by congress to roll back the legislative gains of the past fifty years. Many would argue that these acts and efforts are not racial, but rather directed…

My Life as a Criminal

Posted on April 29, 2015 at 6:00am 15 Comments

Starting at about age five, I learned what money was for. It was to buy candy at the candy store. Tootsie rolls, potato  chips, button candy and more. Each one could be had for a single penny. A chocolate soda, which contained Hershey's chocolate syrup on the bottom of a coca cola glass, then filled with seltzer, and mixed vigorously with a spoon (stirred, not shaken,) cost two pennies. An egg cream, having nothing to do with eggs or cream, was three pennies. It was the same as a chocolate…
