Patchwork

The year is about to draw to a close. Goodbye 2014. I can’t say I am sorry to see it go. It has been a year filled with sadness, happiness, elation and good news.  The month of March—my birthday month—saw me going from extreme sadness to extreme happiness all in the same week

EDWIN EDWARDS

Edwin Edwards stated, after his recent defeat for Congress where he gathered only 37% of the vote, that this was his last run for office.

Patchwork

His name was Tipsy Tuxedo and he was referred to as “the cat who came for Christmas and never went home!” Tipsy started out in Natchitoches as a kitten. He was black with a “Got Milk?” mustache, a white chest, white boots and a tail that constantly swished. His whiskers were long and white and he had the typical black cat personality of “I can do anything I want!” (And he did!!)

Do Wars defend America’s Freedom?

U.S. politicians and pundits are fond of saying that America’s wars have defended America’s freedom. But the historical record doesn’t bear out this contention. In fact, over the past century, U.S. wars have triggered major encroachments upon civil liberties.

There goes the post office, the health unit, Wright’s Appliances, Massingill’s Appliances, Williams Brothers – these are
