Curmudgeon Corner - Another School Shooting

My Rooney thoughts for October 26, 2014

Well, it’s happened again, here in the Northwest.  In Marysville, Washington at a local high school a distraught and misguided young man walked into the school cafeteria with a .40 caliber handgun and killed the girl who had refused his amorous advances.  Additionally, he wounded two others students before turning the gun on himself.  It’s a tragedy that’s being played out way too often, not only in Washington but all over the…

Curmudgeon Corner - The Politics of Ebola

Curmudgeon Corner

My Rooney thoughts for October 19, 2014

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…
