I’ll admit I sometimes say things without thinking and occasionally blurt out words I wish I could take back. This practice of acting too quickly can happen on a much larger scale. At the turn of the 20th century, the National Park Service was looking for a way to help drain some of the swam…
Seventeenth-century English clergyman Thomas Fuller said, “If you have one true friend, you have more than your share.” Amen and amen! I have been blessed with more than one, but last week, I lost one of my best.

‘Only in Alabama.” Now, that’s a statement that’ll get me riled up. Sometimes it’s said as criticism, but it’s always meant to ridicule and make fun of a whole population of folks, including you and me.
