Michelle Bachmann

Up until recently, someone who mentioned the words "woman" and "presidential candidate" in the same breath probably would have been met with the response, "Sarah Palin." But now, with Palin's star fading -- at least politically -- and with nobody having stepped forward to commandeer the frontrunner's role in the Republican field, Minnesota Congressman Michelle Bachmann is assuming a front-and-center position as a viable candidate to take the GOP nomination. Whether her early poll results will result in another shooting-star phenomenon is yet to be told, but Bachmann is proving herself a more adept campaigner than Palin was.

Polk only councilman to 'truly represent' citizens

I am somewhat puzzled over Martin Cahn's newspaper's accounting of city council meetings. I am particularly confused by the detailing of Mr. Polk's emotions and body language during the meetings. Are all eyes, including the reporter's, on Mr. Polk, because he is the only one who is responding to the outrage? The recent attempt to abolish the commissions is quite revealing. Mr. Partin questioned Mr.Polk's concerns and accused him of advocating larger government. In my view, Mr. Polk was defending a democratic government!

The e-mails usually contain vague threats about how something bad will happen to me if I don't forward the letter to five friends, or how good luck will follow if I do. The last straw was when she sent me one that said, "Forward this, and something good will happen. If you are not a believer in God, delete."

Scrapbook for July 6, 2011

Independence Day (July 4th) is a great holiday! We don't give gifts. And most people don't send "Happy Fourth of July" cards. Families have traditions how to celebrate. For me, it's parades, fireworks and food! Most of the foods we think of for this holiday are quite simple. Hot dogs, hamburgers and barbecue are at the top of my list. It's a case of "put it on the grill and sit in the shade." (One may guess that this is my day out of the kitchen.)
