Unless you have been hiding under a rock, I’m sure you are quite aware the Democrats wrapped up their convention last week, while the Republicans took to the stage the week before that.
All the pomp and circumstance, campaign promises and endless opposition bashing dominated the air waves — as well as Facebook. I don’t know if I care anymore about who wins or loses, but rather when the circus will be over. I’m quite jaded at this point. Yet, in all the hoopla that surrounds the conventions, I did find one inspirational moment of substance that Democrats and Republicans alike can agree was quite moving.
I’m sorry about last Sunday. My column seems to have gotten lost in transit. Hopefully I won’t let that happen again any time soon. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We had a super good time with family, especially enjoying daughter Becky and Harold from Ruston. They stayed over and we went to church and lunch together on Sunday.
Today, Dec. 7, is Pearl Harbor Day. Some of us had family in the service in Hawaii that day.
Question: I pay so much for insurance. but I’m not even sure if what I have is the right kind or amount. How do I lower my bill and make sure I have the right kinds of insurance?
Answer: Imagine coming out of Giganto-Mart one day and not being able to find your truck. After searching the parking lot 10 times, you come to the very uncomfortable realization that your truck is gone. Maybe you forgot where you put it, maybe some unsavory characters took it or maybe space aliens swooped out of the sky and ate it.
