“Suspected tornadoes ripped through North Texas on Wednesday night, killing at least six people and injuring more than 100 others.”   This is the beginning of a CNN news story.  Obviously I am not a meteorologist because I am puzzled by the word “suspected.”  Is there...

There is a song in the musical Camelot entitled “I Wonder What the King is Doing Tonight.”   After watching a 60 Minutes feature on Bill Gates, whose net worth is over 67 billion dollars, I find myself wondering what he is thinking tonight.  Perhaps tonight...

There are some days when the needles don’t hurt.  Today wasn’t one of them.  Today my blood-taker literally pinpointed a nerve.  It also happened to my dog today.  I discovered an attached tick on her side.  Usually she is very patient and stoic when I...
