Hi, Quickly. This is certainly not a quarrelsome posting. I want to thank my friend Jim for all he has done for me.

Those Hollywood actors got some big — really big — body guards. Good grief, no wonder they have such a hard time controlling their tongues.

Is it just me or have you noticed some potatoes at the grocery store have really odd shapes?

Some people are born without a sensitivity filter. They speak before they think.

I used to live in a country with a privatized postal service and no Saturday delivery. We bought stamps at a drug store. It worked fine.

I love when it snows and all the garbage on our roads is covered up. It looks so beautiful, at least for a time, until it all melts.

It would be easy for schools to stop bullying if parents stopped siding with their kids and actually allowed their children to be held accountable for their actions.

Parents of special ed kids should know they can contact the Indiana Resource Center for Families with Special Needs. They will send you books with a lot of information on the rules and regulations you need to know in dealing with the schools. Contact them at 800-332-4433.

A 54-year sentence for the child porn case is a step in the right direction. This sends the right message that this nonsense will not be tolerated.

Former U.S. Rep. Lee Hamilton made some great points about how uncivil our politics have become. Too many people have made a sport of it rather than trying to make things right.
