My crack investigators have been busy. The snoopers discovered that Frederick schools apparently had no regard for the inauguration – as required by the document called The Constitution – that took place at the Capitol in Washington Friday.
Please, I don't want to sound crabby on the day before the White House gets a new occupant, but maybe I am.
All eyes are on this exciting inauguration week in the nation's capital. Certainly the world is watching. Frederick's finest will be in strategic positions, carrying banners for the city and county.
It’s a warm June afternoon in 1962. At about 4 o’clock I was in the vestibule of the then Hampton Institute chapel. A light breeze flowed through the windows raised about 12 inches.
Have you heard the good news? I mean the news on the local level where many old names and a slew of new ones are movin' and groovin' to see if they can honestly make any differences in governance.
Here it goes again. Another police officer killed on duty. One of the many sworn in the manhunt for the killer dies in pursuit.
One of the most offensive, disgusting and hateful tweets, videos and crimes in the news occurred last week in Chicago.
There is no good reason here to resurrect events of the past 16th year of the 21st century. Neither is there any idea for resolutions over the next 12 months.
The so-called public debate regarding fake news is a lot of baloney. Facts are simple to understand. Consider that faux news is a public relations professionals' delight.
So, here we go. A new year with more challenges. Let's face it, when people are singing or humming Auld Lang Sine, juices are rolling in all quarters of our lives. Come on 2017.
The plan here has been to rest, enjoy the time of year when by all that's happy can be celebrated en masse.
Reading the mail has brought several terrific stories involving mighty fine people who reside in the Baltimore-Washington-Annapolis corridor. Everybody can lean in on these reports. They are perfect for this time of year and there’s no reason to put the knock on anybody.
Earlier this week I wrote of the continuing lawlessness faced daily by sworn police officers. Several more shootings have occurred. The total dead officers is now in the high sixties. Injuries are soaring.
We’re in the happiest and most joyous season of the year. No question about it, no matter what the politically correct crowd like to promote, it’s the season foremost of Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah. Repeat these encomiums please. It would sure be grand if there was peace and joy everywhere.
Followers of this esteemed online commentary can know today we got the news first, before it happened, and didn't have to rub a crystal ball or some other magic wand for the facts.
All eyes throughout Frederick County today will be on Winchester Hall, headquarters of the county’s council. It won’t be surprising that the lawmakers’ own cable television channel will have a nice big viewership.
They were rejoicing and exceedingly glad. Reverie in Miami and throughout Cuban communities, even here in Frederick, was ecstatic. What brought about the excitement and enthusiasm along with tears of joy? A rather easy answer. Death finally greeted Fidel Castro, the American hater.
This business of sanctuary cities, colleges and churches so popular again after the national histrionics is rather stupid and insidious. There is something we follow called The Rule of Law.
We can all be forgiven if navel-gazing and full stomachs are truly the order of today. The worries of the world and surrounding communities can be revitalized tomorrow.
In the midst of this happy week, there is a lot for all to be thankful most assuredly. There are plenty of joys to go around. How exciting to be with family and food and sporting activities.
Now that transition of the government is undergoing such love and friendliness, who can barely wait for the new political style to arrive?
Still awake at 2:40 in the morning unable to reach The Land of Nod, it was impossible yesterday to hit the remote control off buttons for both the television set and laptop online. The ongoing cacophony about the stunning change on the national landscape had me alert.
Time has now arrived. Jokes and jokers, wisecracks and wiseacres along with the dis-and-misinformation poohbahs can be sent to the woodshed. I want to return to some important matters.
In the midst of this human Internet, there are many smiles and great rewards. Don't quit perusing these paragraphs yet, please! There is more to come, good stuff for sure if you remain faithful.
It's the morning after. Hopefully bobbing for apples is done for another year, sweet tooths are satisfied at least for today and sugar antidotes are working.
If stupid things are enacted in other states and commonwealths, they can surely occur everywhere else. Surprised? Don't be. This is a never ending battle.
How exciting the next few days are going to be. In my dreams I was seeing the Nationals and the Orioles in their World Series finest, playing first in Baltimore and then in Washington.
We need a break from all of the impertinences us good people have been enduring. Do I have to explain them? Of course not.
Ivory towers remain supreme out of the nation's capital and the trickling down may have reached an all-time gully washer.
