Congratulations! “Nehem Felices won the 60th annual LNP Spelling Bee on Friday night – by correctly spelling the word ‘kiloton’ … ” – from a page one article in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.
Wonder whether “correct spelling” ought to be a test of American citizenship? If it was, there’d be a bunch of facebook deportees!
How long would you wait?
- for your wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend
- when you’ve got jury duty (oh, wait, there’s almost non-stop waiting there!)
- to see your doctor
- for a professor to come to class
- in line at the grocery store
- for the postman
- in the drive in line to get a sandwich or cup of coffee
- in line to buy concert tickets, football tickets or any event
Odds are your tolerance and willingness to wait are predicated on your perception of worth or value on what you’re waiting for.
Would you wait an hour or more for some unknown person to come to an appointed meeting to try to convince you to buy pie-in-the-sky with nothing tangible and only haphazardly, unprepared words to share with you?
Highly unlikely, huh! Yeah, we thought so.

Could this be the big ’un? | Weather forecaster chatter warns us about another Nor’easter coming sometime around Tuesday. No big deal, the Farmer’s Almanac predicted that over a year ago. “The Farmers’ Almanac also is ‘red-flagging’ the 2018 dates of … March 20-23 along the Atlantic Seaboard for some heavy precipitation.”
Long-time Lancaster Countians remember: Over the years March has produced some humdingers.
OPINION – “Trump has just put the country’s economic fate in the hands of the man who has arguably been more publicly and consistently wrong about the economy than any person alive.” – from this Dana Milbank column
