Today was campus cleanup day.  Faculty and students spent the afternoon raking, sweeping, spreading mulch and carrying away the last fall's leaves. We do it every year just prior to alumni weekend.  We want the campus to look good for the homecomers.   Our problem today...

This evening I opened a small bottle of maraschino cherries.  The human mind is an amazing treasure house of memories triggered by sights, sounds and smells. Suddenly I was overwhelmed with a memory I have not experienced in decades.  When I was a small boy...

Several times today I heard today called "Super Sunday."  I don't think so! I don't care if there was a hundred yard interception return for a touchdown. There was only one "Super Sunday" and that happened almost 2000 years ago. Jesus had been in the...

In Paradise Lost Milton speaks of Lucifer's intelligence as being of the highest order. All through the writings of Shakespeare and Charles Dickens the good guys are usually portrayed as being a bit simple while the wicked, clever, conniving characters are intellectually bright. The hero...

I put four new shock absorbers on my car.  After 130,000 miles it seemed like the right thing to do.  Wow.  It rides like a brand new vehicle.  As those thousands of miles rolled along little by little, the ride ever so slowly worsened.  I...
