  • Lake Conway memories

    The Observer spent a good part of last week in Mayflower, that sleepy little burg to our north that we knew mostly as the place where we turn to get to our favorite Halloweentime pumpkin patch until an ExxonMobil pipeline burst there and made a hell of a mess on the Friday before Easter.
  • Government not the enemy

    During a time of great hardship for our nation, the Depression, a wise president, born to wealth and privilege, but reviled by the elite as traitor to his class, once said, "Government can err, presidents do make mistakes.

  • The reality of the Mike Rice firing

    Look at it this way: if Rutgers coach Mike Rice hadn't gotten fired last week after ESPN broadcast video of him shoving players, hurling basketballs at them, and screaming that they were "faggots" and worse, he was a good bet to get dumped next year after another losing season.
