Invisible Involvement and “Backpack Dumps”

With the beginning of a new school year, I often get asked how parents can help students to be successful in school. Over the years, my thoughts on this topic have evolved quite a bit. As a result, I have come to be a big proponent of what I call "invisible involvement."

Gun Rights

The issue of second amendment gun rights will be a major talking point in next year's national elections, following the recall in Colorado of two state legislators who had played a prominent role in passing gun restrictions in that state. Two senators, both Democrats, lost their seats when Republicans rose up against the new laws. And the results have prompted Democrats in Colorado to step back and assess their policies for the future.

Old Obama would question new war plans

President Barack Obama surprised many by deciding to turn to Congress for approval before he fires missiles at Syria, but his decision makes sense. When proposing military action that almost nobody wants to wage, it is best to find someone with whom to share the blame.

A little bit of war

WASHINGTON -- Waging a little bit of war is like being a little bit pregnant.

American credibility

WASHINGTON -- Undoubtedly you've heard that American credibility is on the line, thanks to President Obama's vacillation on what to do about Syria.

Employees, volunteers play important role at KH

One of the things about being a healthcare CEO is that you become the very visible face of the organization. In many cases, the public believes you are closely involved with everything that happens within the walls of the organization. Unfortunately, that does a great disservice to the hundreds of employees and volunteers and the difference they make in the lives of people every day. CEOs provide vision, leadership and support of the organization's mission, but it's everyday employees who execute that mission.

When talk isn’t cheap

At the outset, let me stipulate that 99.999 percent -- or more -- of all the words uttered by politicians are thoroughly forgettable, and that they usually are forgotten nearly as soon as they are spoken.

Is the man with the chainsaw real?

Perhaps I should give Miley Cyrus all the credit for my column this month. Besides, she is the proverbial straw I've been waiting for. Suffice it to say I believe Miss Cyrus' repugnant performance on the recent VMA's acted as a wake-up call of sorts for many parents including myself. If you missed the show, don't spend the time viewing it on YouTube or some other social media. It will only add to the number of hits she's received and help prove her notion she was "making history." It's truly worthy of nothing. More, I ...

High school newspaper ink drying up

I was thumbing through my old "Class of 1965" high school yearbook one day when I was stopped dead cold by an autograph left by one of my teachers: "Dear Clarence: All I ask is that you mention my name when you win your first Pulitzer Prize. Don't forget. Mary Kindell."

The pain of writing … and dating

There are so many adages about writing -- write what you know, write from the heart, show them don't tell them and the list goes on, ad nauseum. I took a fair share of writing classes as an undergrad and I loved those classes. That's the most fun I've ever had as a student in a learning scene, I have no doubt.
