Bump in the night

'The basics'

From time to time, especially when the budget and the costs of education are being discussed, a community member will inevitably ask me why our schools do not spend more time on "the basics" -- the three Rs of "reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic." These conversations always seem to harken back to the "good old days," when things seemed simpler and in retrospect, seemed to work better and were cheaper.

Elite anti-elitism

In her continuing effort to distance herself from her own beliefs, Delaware's Christine O'Donnell is trying her level best to convince the world that she's a genuine, regular person. If she can fake that, as an old saying goes, she's got it made.

The house

The house has always been there. She will, most likely, always be there. She has never wavered from her foundation or from her purpose. She has always endured. She has reared our children, celebrated our joyous occasions, wept for our unfortunate circumstances, helped us bury our dead.

Wanderlust

Fifty years ago this month, acclaimed American novelist John Steinbeck stuffed his belongings and his poodle into a camper perched on top of a pickup, left his Long Island home and headed out to cross the United States, determined to rediscover a country that had become increasingly unrecognizable to him.
