Anti-social Media

Dec 20, 2013 1:02am

I confess, for a fairly tech-savvy guy I’m not too big on social media. The English major in me rails against the dumbing down of our language as used and severely abused by Twitter, the droning...

A Winter Wonderland? Not Quite.

As I sit here gazing out my window upon sheets of white ice, black slush and icicles giving up their existence in deference to slowly (too slowly) elevating temperatures, I reflect upon my status...

Savoring the Season

Dec 05, 2013 1:01am

The holidays are upon us and there is much to celebrate, much to be thankful for and much to do. There is also much about the holidays that is overrated or underrated. Following is my personal...

Van Alstyne Middle School put on a Veteran’s Day presentation on Monday and it was definitely worth an hour of my time. Any chance we get as a community to honor our veterans we need to make the...
