Curmudgeon Corner -Holiday Season

For December 14, 2014Hey, that time of year is here again.  A time of year when we put Ferguson, EITs, and choke holds aside and extend goodwill (goodwill: a kind, helpful, or friendly feeling or attitude.) to everyone.   Yep, I’m talking about the Christmas Season.  Oops, I mean the Holiday Season.  By saying “Holiday Season” I’m showing goodwill towards everyone.  It’s politically correct to say “Holiday Season” and we all know how politically correct our political leaders are.The Holiday…See More

Curmudgeon Corner - Who Won Japan or us?

My Rooney thoughts for December 7, 2014Today was the day that exactly seventy-three years ago a great president said, “It was a day that will live in infamy.”   Today is the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, the day that the Land of The Rising Sun inadvertently awoke a Sleeping Tiger.  The Japanese viewed the bombing of Pearl Harbor as a necessary pre-empty strike necessary to ensure a victory for their country.  The return on their investment was as contradictory as their country’s culture was to…See More

Curmudgeon Corner - Lessons of Ferguson

My Rooney thoughts for November 30, 2014The lessons of Ferguson are many, both for white folks and black folks.  Actually, there are many lessons for all Americans if they just will listen and understand.  For me, the most apparent lesson is there is still a divided American, black people who are oppressed (or perceive being oppressed) and white people who don’t understand that they are the oppressors. One of the white behaviors that contributes to black people feeling oppressed is the fact a…See More

Curmudgeon Corner - Our Country Needs You!

My Rooney thoughts for November 23, 2014What a week this has been for America.  Of course, there is the weather in which Buffalo took a beating.  Ferguson, Missouri is braced for an announcement by a grand jury, but the biggest news is the President finally took action on immigration.  Frankly, I think he waited too long but then he had good reason to wait.How many times did he ask congress to move on immigration?  How much pleading did he do to get that body to govern, to move the country…See More

Curmudgeon Corner - An Education Expert

My Rooney thoughts for November 16, 2014Just got done reading Ester Cepeda’s (Washington Post columnist) article proclaiming teachers need to be better educated.  Better educated?  What teachers might she talking about?  Teaching is a profession and just like all professions, you have those individuals who take their training serious and those that don’t have a clue.  When I was in college there were students who were serious minded students to the point of making one nauseated.  Others; not so…See More

Curmudgeon Corner - Simply Put ...

My Rooney thoughts for November 11, 2014Today, one hundred years ago, at the exact time of 1100hrs the Great War came to an end. It was thought to be a war that would end all wars.  It was a war in which men learned to use machines of destruction, to kill almost a whole generation of young men. It was only thought to be the war that would end all wars.  Simply put, it did not.I think of that war from time to time.  I can’t begin to contemplate the ugliness of that war.  What those men must have…See More

Curmudgeon Corner - Not voting, Don't complain

My Rooney thoughts for November 9, 2014The off-year elections of 2014 are over.  As everyone knows by now, the Republicans took control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate.  The reason for this is believed to be that only one-third of the eligible voters voted.  Where the heck was the voter trying to meet his house payment?  Where were the voters living below the poverty level?  Where was the voter that works three jobs to put food on the table?  You gotta vote folks, to have a…See More

Curmudgeon Corner - The Politics of Ebola

Curmudgeon CornerMy Rooney thoughts for October 19, 2014It never fails!  Some weeks ago when the press began reporting the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, our government went to great lengths to assure the American people Ebola won’t reach our shores.  WRONG!Suddenly, Ebola was present in America, in Dallas, Texas.  (Apparently Ebola didn’t affect the Dallas Cowboys who went to Seattle and taught the Northwest who still is the toughest state in the Union.)  And, our government officials,…See More

My San Pedro secret
Ate my first Greek meal in San Pedro back in 1969 when I was attending USC. My classmate, Mario, his dad owned a Greek Rest.
Drink my first Uzo there with not good results the next day. Whoa!
