Can we please have a few TV Westerns, pardner?

The recent death of actor James Drury (star of the 1962-1971 TV Western “The Virginian”) adds insult to injury when one considers what will occur next month.
When the networks announce the shows they’re canceling and launching, yet again there will be no true Westerns in contention for a coveted spot on the fall schedules.

Survive the supermarket with social distancing

As we adjust our daily schedules to the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, many families are suffering from acute boredom.
Students are suspending their homeschool teachers without pay for excessive grouchiness, children are traumatizing their pets by repeatedly dressing them in Superman and ballerina outfits, and adults are resorting to binge-watching Tiger King on Netflix­ — again.

What will Easter 2021 be like?

“Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” — C.S. Lewis
“Better safe than sorry” is an overriding theme for individuals, businesses and governments struggling with the current worldwide health crisis.
“Better safe than sorry” propels the hoarding of consumer products, the cancellation of major sporting/entertainment events and the frenzied push to provide ample medical resources for a worst-case scenario.
