Cartoon of the Week: Powerless!

Crain's Detroit Business - July 29
Summer in metro Detroit has its seasonal challenges - humidity, thunderstorms, the occasional threat of a tornado and ever mosquitos on warm summer nights. But, no matter what Mother Nature throws at us at this time of year, the most frustrating seasonal challenge (especially when it threatens the food in your refrigerator/freezer and means sleeping without air conditioning) is being powerless. No "juice," gone dark. Sometimes it's understandable - high wind, a down tree … sometimes, however, it's unexpected and - apparently to us - inexplicable. And, when we can't get accurate information about when it might be restored … well, that brings me back to being "powerless!"
That's the Point!

Freedom: A Gift and a Responsibility

The News-Herald, July 3
The freedom that is the cornerstone of our independence is both a gift and a responsibility. It is a gift from the founders of the United States of America and all those throughout the centuries who have nurtured and defended it. It is a responsibility that we all have to nurture and defend, and to pass on to generations to come.
That's the Point!
