Today’s News: A tale of two obituaries, and more

Yesterday, college football coach Mike Leach died.  He was coach at my alma mater, Washington State University for some years.

Ronald Reagan said “Freedom is never more than a generation away from extinction”

Does this quote from a young man of my acquaintance prove it?  Over at another Web site, he titled his essay "Good Riddance, America."  His description of how young people feel and act is quite upsetting.  But I think he is absolutely correct.  And I think that my generation, the Baby Boomers, started it.

Dispatch from the deteriorating Puget Sound area

Here in the Seattle area, like in many cities across America, we are seeing a deterioration of many different areas of society.  Public schools are failing, having been closed for many months during the Covid pandemic (by governments).  Parents are pulling their kids out of public schools, so reduced numbers of students lead to less …

It’s a Mammoth Discovery!

Quite literally!  In the Yukon region of Canada, some miners came upon a natural wonder.  They found a 30,000-year-old, well-preserved Woolly Mammoth baby.  The mummified remains were well-protected by the near-frozen ground in which they were found during mining excavations. The article on Fox News describes the state of preservation, and other background information on …
