Less Ageism, Please The January 4 issue of this publication proved to me that there are some sensible voices of reason in our community regarding all things “inter-generational.” I offer a word of thanks to Elizabeth Myers. I too have worked hard for what I’ve earned throughout my years in the various positions I’ve held. While I too cannot speak for each millennial, brash generalizations about a lack of work ethic don’t sit well with me...Joe Connolly, Traverse City

Now That’s an Escalation I just read the letter from Greg and his defense of the AR15. The letter started with great information but then out of nowhere his opinion went off the rails. “The government wants total gun control and then confiscation; then the elimination of all Constitutional rights.” Wait... what?! To quote the great Ron Burgundy, “Well, that escalated quickly!”

Healthy Eating and Exercise for Children Healthy foods and exercise are important for children of all ages. It is important for children because it empowers them to do their best at school and be able to do their homework and study...

Mascots and Harsh Native American Truths The letter from the Choctaw lady deserves an answer. I have had a gutful of the whining about the fate of the American Indian. The American Indians were the losers in an imperial expansion; as such, they have, overall, fared much better than a lot of such losers throughout history. Everything the lady complains about in the way of what was done by the nasty, evil Whites was being done by Indians to other Indians long before Europeans arrived...

Snyder Must Go I believe it’s time. It’s time for Governor Snyder to go. The FBI, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the EPA Criminal Investigation Division are now investigating the Flint water crisis that poisoned thousands of people. Governor Snyder signed the legislation that established the Emergency Manager law. Since its inception it has proven to be a dismal failure...

Erosion of Public Trust Let’s look at how we’ve been experiencing global warming. Between 1979 and 2013, increases in temperature and wind speeds along with more rain-free days have combined to stretch fire seasons worldwide by 20 percent. In the U.S., the fire seasons are 78 days longer than in the 1970s...

The Answer to History‘s Greatest Mysteries

George Foster - June 9th, 2005
Thirty-some years ago, the identity of Deep Throat was the hottest issue from the most sensational scandal of the 20th century. In that spirit, here are the greatest unsolved mysteries and a stab at the answer by a noted clairvoyant - me.
Where is Osama bin Laden? The notorious terrorist is last known to have evaporated in the mountains of Tora Bora, Afghanistan. Why the world’s most famous face can’t be sniffed out by the biggest manhunt in history and a $25 million reward is a bigger mystery than his whereabouts itself.
The answer is obvious to me: bin Laden has shed his robe and turban, shaved his beard and is living a decedent life at various Club Meds under the alias of doorknob salesman Sam Laden. As a former rich playboy, bin Laden knows this fast lane as well as the Khyber Pass. In his former life bin Laden dedicated himself to booze and broads before he converted to bombs and Allah.
Who killed John F. Kennedy? It must be the man already blamed for every evil outcome since 1992: Bill Clinton. No less authority than the Internet has already convicted the former president of Vince Foster’s death, cooperating with Timothy McVeigh before the Oklahoma City bombing, and being ultimately responsible for the 9/11 attacks.
Did you notice that evil look in his eye in the famous photo of young Clinton shaking Kennedy’s hand? We all know that Clinton wanted to be like Kennedy, so what better way to replace your idol than murdering him?
It takes just a tiny leap of faith to realize that an armed Clinton could have been lying in the grassy knoll with one of his female friends on November 22, 1963 during the presidential motorcade in Dallas.
Woodward and Bernstein have come forward to identify a former government operative as the famous Deep Throat - but is he? Many White House officials cannot believe someone so removed from the Nixon administration could have provided the information attributed to Deep Throat.
The real answer: Richard M. Nixon himself. Helping with the Watergate investigation during his presidential term insured his early resignation. Tired of being a lampooned target of so much hatred, our “Deep Throat” president was relieved to retire to a secluded life of writing books and being a fanatical Washington Redskins football fan.
Please don’t ask me, though, for any more answers to history’s mysteries. Some things should always be left up to our imagination.
