    If love can make you blind, then infatuation must be capable of blunting all the senses.

  • MATTER OF OPINION: Is patriotism lost?

    Happy 234th birthday U.S. of A!

    Time to get those barbecues fired up for this weekend’s backyard festivities. Let’s see, we need burgers, hot dogs and chips. Check! A cooler full of Cokes. Check! Plastic cups, plates and utensils in shades of red, white and blue. Triple check! Oh, yeah, don’t forget to stop by the nearest fireworks stand. You know how the kids love sparklers.

    I enjoy a family get-together as much as the next person, but is that all the Fourth of July means to us any more? Is it just another commercialized holiday?
