You think you're on top of your game. Then out of the blue comes that stray freight train, that looming bomb, that guided missile that annihilates all those illusions.

Noted and passed

• "Spin" has become an inexorable part of the political process, and if you hear President Obama tell it, his bus tour through Iowa isn't a campaign trip, saying instead that it's a way to take the pulse of the country. But it has all the trappings of a political hoorah, and of course that's what it is. We're not blaming the president for that, only noticing that when it comes to spin, the White House is as accomplished at it as any politician at any level.

Nuisance calls are scams in the making

Recently I have been receiving many calls wishing to sell me something or begging for contributions. For example, a state university has called me and my husband to ask to be included in wills and have a donation given. A salesman, ostensibly from a local cemetery, has called to have me buy a plot and/or have his group put flowers on my mother-in-law's grave. Is such a behavior not illegal if certainly reprehensible?

Thomas Britton White Jr.

For ninety years, seven months and ten days, Thomas Britton White, Jr. of Camden had a very good run. Sadly, it ended on Saturday, March 14, 2015 with Andy and Debbie by his side. After a courageous, decades-long battle with pigweed, he succumbed to a brief bout with lymphoma. He left us convinced that if that pesky weed is, in fact, present in Heaven, there will also be a herbicide that is 100% effective against it. Further, he did not expect to find squirrels there when he arrived last Saturday evening.
