CARTOONS of the DAY: Their Last Full Measure

The Press & Guide - May 23

The News-Herald - May 27
Memorial Day 2012 ... today, amid your barbeques, ball games, cottage visits, and even spring yard chores, stop and remember - and say a prayer for - those who gave "... their last full measure of devotion" to their country; so that we can live in the security and safety we enjoy. Their sacrifices are the payment for our freedom.
That's the Point!

CARTOONS of the DAY: History and Historic

The News-Herald - May 16

The Press & Guide - May 16
I was a History co-major in college (Wayne State University), and history has remained a life-long interest of mine. This week, I had the opportunity to celebrate local history in both The News-Herald and The Press & Guide with the opening of the Gibraltar Historical Museum Downriver, and the celebration of of 50 historic years for the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn. Best wishes to both communities - let's keep making history!
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: It's All For You Mom!

The News-Herald - May 13
Although this News-Herald greeting is sent out to Downriver Moms, it applies to all my readers - in Dearborn, Dearborn Heights and throughout the metro Detroit area. Nobody deserves special recognition more than mothers, who - more than anyone - nurture our future. Happy Mother's Day!
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: Duck! Season

The News-Herald - May 6
"...dethpicalbe!" That may be Daffy Duck's reaction to the hunting of water fowl on Sugar Island, but its inclusion in the Detroit River Refuge is good environmental news overall. My advice to the water fowl there? "Duck!"
That's the Point!

There are many signals of a recovery of the U.S. automotive industry - sales increases, higher profitability, great products with positive reviews - and, equally important, confidence on the part of the investment community. It's great to see our hometown automotive icon - Ford - "fully equipped" again!
That's the Point!
