At long last, Falcons fans have something to cheer
It hasn’t always been easy being an Atlanta Falcons fan. This hasn’t exactly been the Rolls Royce of NFL franchises. More like the Ford Pinto.

A Founding Father speaks out on today's politics
Benjamin Franklin stopped by my office the other day to talk about this week’s presidential inauguration. Don’t scoff. People claim to see UFOs all the time. Other people hold séances to talk to the spirit of their great Aunt Hildegarde. I talk to the Founding Fathers. Play along, OK?

In 2017, I hope you'll see less of me
As many of you know, I don’t like the idea of New Year’s resolutions. We have good intentions when we make them, but by the end of January, we’re back to doing whatever bad habit we had resolved to stop doing.

We need more heroes like John Glenn
We have don’t real heroes much anymore. We look up to athletes, who really haven’t done anything other than score touchdowns and hit home runs. We worship actors, who get millions to pretend they are someone else for our entertainment. We admire singers for doing something lots of ordinary folks are capable of doing almost as well.

I recently read a story online titled “How smart are animals?” The author of this story concluded that animals are, in fact, very smart. The story told of chimps who had learned sign language, dolphins who recognized commands in English and a dog who could do simple math.

Spiders don't belong in the kitchen
As I was about to put water in the coffeepot to make coffee Sunday morning, I noticed something in the sink was moving. It was a spider. Now I know what you are saying. “Mitch, it’s just a little spider. Quit being a baby.”

This time of the year, I find myself buying lots of ice.
