MY LOUSY WORLD: An appropriate funeral

It was a somber, cancer weekend days before Halloween, and nothing is more ghoulish than cancer. I attended my brother Paul’s wonderful wife Shelia’s (Claudson) funeral and later that evening, a cancer benefit for sweet Teri (Barhaugh) Patton.

AMEND CORNER: Why I won’t vote for Trump

Sometimes the hardest part of writing a column is just getting started.

This is one of those times.

Everyone is concerned about government corruption, yet seems oblivious to what’s going on in our funnies. Someone needs to look into possible “pay for play” corruption there.

A little over 10 years ago, this space featured a column under the title, “The royal presidency.”

There is an election coming up.

I haven’t mentioned this election in this space since the middle of July, so some of you may have wondered if I had forgotten about Hillary and The Donald. Some of you may actually have been celebrating that omission, either because you don’t want to think about the election or because you can guess what I might say and don’t want to hear it.

Every now and then, unexpressed sentiments build up and I need a non-specific-subject column to clear the blockage. Like a good suppository, it relieves and frees me up to digest more timely information.
