The boys of summer http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/community/cass-county-demo/opinion/article158287129.html#storylink=rss I thoroughly enjoy watching baseball. The other evening my favorite baseball player struck out twice, collected one base hit, an RBI and a run scored. The team managed to knock off a previously undefeated team and move up one in the league standings.

People will be people and chimps will be chimps http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/community/cass-county-demo/opinion/article158287099.html#storylink=rss You may recall a television show called “Kids Are People, Too” that ran on ABC from 1978 to 1982. I took great delight in reminding our oldest son that the title of the show contained absolutely no truth at all. I would constantly tease him when the show was airing that kids are not people. People are people, kids are just kids, they aren’t really people yet, I would tell him.

Television offers us a glimpse at far-away natural wonders http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/community/cass-county-demo/opinion/article158287094.html#storylink=rss You might not expect a naturalist, an outdoorsman and a lover of the good old days like me to brag on television.

It is time to show some respect http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/community/cass-county-demo/opinion/article158287069.html#storylink=rss All the news outlets and social media have been abuzz this past week over the ill-conceived antics of Kathy Griffin. This is not the proper forum for recounting the rude, tasteless and disrespectful photo of her and the Trump mask that was posted online. We’ve all aware and have probably fully discussed what we have seen and heard.

We need to be able to laugh at ourselves http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/community/cass-county-demo/opinion/article158287054.html#storylink=rss There was an interesting little bit in the news last week about a junior high school awards event that brought some unwanted consequences. Apparently, teachers involved in the academic honors program at Anthony Aguirre Junior High in Channelview, Texas, near Houston decided to hold a mock ceremony.

Slow down, you move too fast http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/community/cass-county-demo/opinion/article158287049.html#storylink=rss Before I spend much energy discussing the driving habits of others, I feel that it is extremely necessary to confess. I have, in the past, received more than one traffic citation, all for the offense of exceeding the posted speed limit.

For what it’s worth http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/community/cass-county-demo/opinion/article158287044.html#storylink=rss I had to look it up.
