  • Survival techniques

    With the reduction of our armed forces, many citizens will be returning to civilian life as veterans. Service in the military can be a stressful experience; an experience most will agree they would do all over again, but must be accompanied by a goodly amount of physical and psychological defense mechanisms; one of which is humor, and no one or anything is immune or off limits, including fellow comrades-in-arms.

    Valentine’s Day is something that you have to just sort of ... survive.
    For single people, that’s particularly true. Speaking as perhaps Somerset’s most eligible bachelor — if I were to get any more eligible, I could probably finagle my own reality show on ABC — I can tell you just about every paragraph in the “Valentine’s Day Survival Guide” handbook.
    Denial? Check. Decry the holiday as a crass invention of the greeting card/floral/chocolate corporate machine? Check. Stay indoors? Check. Board up the windows and barricade the doors, a la “Night of the Living Dead”? Check and check.

  • A House in disarray

    During the 2010 elections there was something going on that many people have not paid attention to but that is all about to end. There is a constitutional requirement that a census be conducted every ten years for purposes of defining proper representation in our government. While all the talking heads and media outlets focused on the statewide and national elections there were thousands of local elections being held that would determine control of the various state houses. It is those state houses and, specifically, the party in power that determines where the boundary lines are to be drawn to ensure that each person has a more or less equally powerful vote. Simple isn't it. Well, not so much.
