Come Together There is a time-honored war strategy known as “divide and conquer,” and never has it been more effective than now. The enemy is using it against us through television, internet and other social media. I opened a Facebook account a couple of years back to gain more entries in local contests. Since then I had fallen under its spell; I rushed into judgment on several social issues based on information found on those pages

Quiet The Phones! This weekend we attended two beautiful Christmas musical events and the enjoyment of both were significantly diminished by self-absorbed boors holding their stupid iPhones high overhead to capture extremely crucial and highly needed photos. We too own iPhones, but during a public concert we possess the decency and manners to leave them turned off and/or at home. Today’s performance, the annual Messiah Sing at Traverse City’s Central Methodist Church, was a new low: we watched as Mr. Self-Absorbed not only took several photos but then afterwards immediately posted them to his Facebook page. We were dumbfounded.

A Torturous Defense In defense of the C.I.A.’s use of torture in a mostly fruitless search for vital information, some suggest that the dire situation facing us after 9-11, justified the use of torture even at the expense of the potential loss of much of our nation’s moral authority.

Snow Jam to Rock Gaylord

Features Kristi Kates “Gaylord is the snowiest city in the Lower Peninsula,” said Kristopher Klay, director of development and marketing for the non-profit White Stone Project, which organizes Snow Jam and the Big Ticket Festival in June. “So there will be two stages – one inside and the other outdoors – and the outdoor stage will actually be built out of snow!”.

Come, Sit, Stay at the Dogg

Dining Ross Boissoneau In keeping with his parents’ unusual furniture and accessories store, the restaurant is a patchwork of textures and re-used materials. Old doors serve as walls or booths, the bar is made from a nunnery’s old floorboards, and antique (or at least well-used) tables dot the premises.
