Publisher's Column Random musings

I wonder if, after the tragic Halloween murders with a truck in New York, the NRA's Wayne LaPierre thought, "If everyone drove a truck there would be no more truck murders, because trucks don't kill people, people kill people."

We went to the Byron school play Friday night, "The Crucible," a play about the dangers to society of "group think" and the danger to individuals who don't go along with it.

Saturday night we enjoyed lighter entertainment in Hayfield watching "Days of Our Nights," a spoof of daytime soaps.

Next week end we will be taking in Triton's "Greater Tuna," a spoof about a radio station in a small Texas town, and Kasson-Mantorville's "The Little Mermaid."

Saw a great t-shirt for DIYers. It read,

"Measure twice, cut once,

Cuss, buy more, measure twice..."

Another one, more appropriate for our industry, reads,

"Let's eat, Mother."

"Let's eat Mother."

Proper punctuation saves lives

Saturday night as I drove into the yard, there was an opossum running away from the chickens pen. When I locked up the chickens there were two hens missing, The opossum I saw didn't appear large enough to be responsible, so I'm thinking it either has siblings and a mother or we have more varmints who view our stock as easy pickings. Either way, the traps are out and I'm back to matching wits with chicken rustlers.

As I write this, it's Sunday night and I just heard that the big story nationally is the latest mass murder with an assault weapon, this time in Texas at a Baptist Church. The death toll at this time is 26 plus the gunman responsible.

It's getting hard to end a column on an upbeat note.
