I revisited one of the great mysteries in life, at least so far as I’m concerned, on April 6.

I confronted this enigma at a concert featuring a tenor accompanied by a harp. For 90 minutes, I listened and watched as the harpist plucked out musical magic on a beautifully built collection of strings and pedals.

Recently, I’ve been traveling back to the television world of half a century ago.

Sometimes, a topic for this essay forces itself on me. Other times, all topics seem to head out of town, leaving me with no inspiration. Then there are weeks like this, when a topic hides in the bushes and jumps out at me.

My first foray into journalism began when I answered an ad in the Northern Wyoming Daily News.

I read the other day that, in America, more than 1 million people are employed as private security guards.

A number of factors currently have me preoccupied with dollar signs.

Well, apparently the Wyoming Supreme Court doesn’t listen to me.

The Constitution requires that the president report to Congress on the way things are going in the good old USA once every year, and Tuesday night, Barack Obama did just that.

I suspect most, if not all, readers of this column have put Christmas behind them.

It’s always interesting when people use events from history to make a point about something happening today.
