Thank people for service in U.S. military

Military service is still difficult, lonely and hard on families. When you next see a man or woman in uniform, march right up and say, “Thank you for your service!” If you really want to make their day, consider offering to pick up their lunch or dinner tab.

Diane Bigler: Music as art gives people peace and comfort

Music makes us brighter, more intelligent, more logical, more rational and more capable. It improves study habits and test scores. It builds a better sense of self and community. It aids in our general sense of well-being and improves our quality of life. At times, music brings us closer to the divine in all of us.

Both are a wee bit flexible in the morals and ethics departments, and neither would hesitate to steal the tooth fairy change from under the Elephant Man’s orthopedic pillow.
