Good Thinking: Babel and Pentecost

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Rudyard Kipling wrote:  “All good people say; and all god people agree that all nice people, like us, are WE – And everyone else is THEY.”

We are a divided people. Separated by national boundaries, limited loyalties, and by barriers of status, economics, education gender, age, and language. We have learned to hate those who are not like “us”. We are suspicious of “them”. Life is

Poosey Digest: They all count

Greetings from Poosey.

Let’s be honest: some of us count and some of us don’t.

When the Illinois legislature voted down an anti-bullying bill because a handful of conservative lawmakers don’t want the schools to be forced to give instruction on understanding kids who are different, that’s a shame …and a shame that those kids don’t count.  When a presidential candidate is accused of holding a student to the ground

Post Scripts: Inspirations of Daily Living

I’ve had a beautifully bound book, “Leaves of Gold”,  in my bookcase for many years. I believe my parents gave it to me. I really never had read the book but with more spare time on my hands, I decided this was the time to bring it out and look through it.

REALITY – I will be a man among men; and no longer a dreamer among shadows.  Henceforth be

Cut to the Chase: Advocacy must engage the congregation

by Bob Stallman

Farm Bureau’s brand of advocacy has been a key part of my entire adult life. I first got involved with the organization when I was relatively young and was having problems with the state of Texas over water rights on my farm. I traveled to a committee hearing in Austin – the first time I’d been to a hearing and the first time I’d been to the

Good Thinking: Proud to be an American!

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Some things come my way that are so good that I have to pass them on! This is one of them.

Some time ago, a notice appeared in a Pakistani newspaper: “A reward will be given to anyone who kills an American, any American.” An Australian dentist, living in Pakistan, wrote this reply: ” I’m writing this to let everyone know what an American is, so

Off the Editor’s Spike: A ‘Rush’ to controversy

I am not very proud of the controversy concerning the decision to add radio commentator Rush Limbaugh to the Hall of Famous Missourians in our state capitol. Evidently, I’m not alone.

Limbaugh’s induction was conducted behind closed doors. Literally. I read where the ceremony was performed in a locked door session in the Missouri House where the doors were guarded by armed police officers. Highway patrolmen and the

Poosey Digest: On a scale of one to…

 Greetings from Poosey.

Complain about your phone service all you want, my phone company loves me! I know this because they told me so…sort of.

My old cell phone company went out of business due to old poops like me who refused to upgrade to the new touch phones so I was forced to switch to a new carrier and within three days they called me:

“Hello, Mrs. Crump. I’m

Post Scripts: Observing Memorial Day

Once again we will observe Memorial Day next Monday as the beginning of summer activities.  Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is officially the end of summer activities.

Decoration Day, as it was originally called, was organized May 28, 1868 to commemorate the sacrifices of Civil War soldiers.  General John J. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic organized it as a day to honor all soldiers and

Cut to the Chase: Get crawdad ban off the hook

by Chris Fennewald

Bass and catfish like to eat crayfish. Fishermen like to catch bass and catfish. Add a hook to that equation, and you’ve got a great combination. A proposed regulation by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will make it a crime to sell live crayfish for bait. This will put fishermen, as well as sporting goods stores that sell live bait, in a pinch.

According to MDC,
