Two for Tuesday — Oct. 23

First, sorry for the lack of posts last week. Was out sick on Tuesday and was too busy to post the rest of the while while I played catchup. Here’s what I’m thinking about: 1. Great debates? Don’t know if this makes me apathetic, but I didn’t watch one second of Monday’s presidential debate. Of […]

Here’s what is on my mind. 1. Was there a full moon on Monday? What started off as a normal Monday — normal for those of us who don’t get Columbus Day off of work — turned weird in a hurry. I visited the fire scene at 219 Oak around 7 a.m. to get some […]

Here’s what I’m thinking about: 1. What a way to go I think it’s only natural to think about how you’re going to leave this world. We think about best-case and worst-case scenarios about death. I hope I just die in my sleep — the ultimate nap. That’s probably the way most of us hope […]

Two For Tuesday — Sept. 25

Here’s what’s on my mind on this rainy Tuesday. 1. It’s been a month I’ve been out of the sports business for a month now. I’m finding the work on the news side to be more rewarding than I thought. I like that there’s always something different to write about on the crime and courts […]

Two For Tuesday — Sept. 18

Here’s what’s on my mind this chilly Tuesday morning. I guess fall is coming. 1. Poor replacements Some of us remember the replacement players the National Football League used in 1987 when the players were on strike.

Here’s what is on my mind today: 1. Never forget If I wasn’t busy working, I’d probably be home watching the coverage of the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terroritst attacks. I wrote an entire column about what I remember from that day in today’s Herald-Whig. Take a second today to remember those who […]

Hope you enjoyed your Labor Day. Here’s what I’m thinking about today: 1. It’s my anniversary. On this day 18 years ago, I married my wife, Stacey, in Galesburg, Ill. We got married on a Sunday, which is kind of rare. I look back at those photos now and can’t believe how young I looked. […]

Wonder if all of the kids in Quincy were as eager to get up today for the second day of school as they were for the first yesterday? Doubt it. Here is what else is on my mind: 1. So Augusta National has two female members I think Condoleeza Rice has a 50-50 shot to […]

Here is what’s on my mind this glorious Tuesday: 1. Having a change of heart There was once a time when I was anti-traveling team. Figured there was no good reason why kids should be going all over the place to play soccer, baseball or basketball. That was until my kid wanted to join a […]
