Kudos for Public Servants
Harry M. Covert

By all rights the following should be on the extreme opinionated side. Probably the only good thing on the horizon is the coming baseball season. As players at all levels are warming up, the sidewalks, yards and streets will be following suit.

New Year’s Feast and Festivities
Tom McLaughlin

Kuching, Malaysia Borneo – Happy Year of the Goat everyone! Well, we think it's a goat. Could be a sheep. They really don't differentiate because it’s an animal that grazes and bleats. I can't think of any others unless, of course, it's one of those African animals but I don't think any of them bleat.

What’s in a Name? Here’s the ‘Skinny’
Harry M. Covert

It is time to put to rest – to bed – all of the hullabaloo, gibberish and nonsense about the Redskins name in the National Football League and any place else for that matter.

Why Mayor Rudy Giuliani Is Correct
Joe Charlebois

Last week Bob Beckel posited that President Obama’s upbringing overseas and direct interaction with the Islamic faith as a youth made him incapable of criticizing the more radical adherents to Islam. This week former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani commented that Mr. Obama does not love this country as most Americans do. I agree.

New Year, Old Solutions
Patricia A. Kelly

Politics can be so annoying, especially when politicians in leadership positions behave unethically, or outrageously. Allowing oneself to become angry about it, though, can limit the possibility of a thoughtful response.

All’s Not Quiet on the Presidential Front
Harry M. Covert

The would-be’s are flailing all over the place. They and their ghost writers are hustling books, going to places like Iowa in the dead of winter trying to organize electable opinions and lining up begging apparatus in high gear for the highest office in the land.

The Plague of Remembering
Tom McLaughlin

I see via the Internet that the new Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is out on the stands. There was a time I would rush right out and buy it.

Pass the Pancakes, Fluffy Ones
Harry M. Covert

Let there be no question, today is special. Everywhere around Frederick and the world, it is described as Pancake Day. Personally the fluffy cakes are something else with all types of berries, syrups and butter, real or otherwise.
