Curmudgeon Corner - Lessons of Ferguson

My Rooney thoughts for November 30, 2014

The 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.

Curmudgeon Corner - Our Country Needs You!

My Rooney thoughts for November 23, 2014

What 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…

Curmudgeon Corner - An Education Expert

My Rooney thoughts for November 16, 2014

Just 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. …

Curmudgeon Corner - Simply Put ...

My Rooney thoughts for November 11, 2014

Today, 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…
