MY LOUSY WORLD: Only the healthy die young

It’s not popular to discuss mortality since few of us will escape eventually dying, and even fewer will reach the age of Methuselah who died unexpectedly at 969. But we all secretly wonder when our number might be called.

AMEND CORNER: My fall reading list

Back in 1950, I embarked on the good ship “School” in search of adventures and found a treasure called “reading.”

Snug in a warm bed during my first week in Wyoming, I woke to an early call.

AMEND CORNER: Respect, offense and protest

It’s been a week since the big hoo-ha over a protest staged by a bunch of professional football players during the playing of the national anthem before the week’s NFL games.

AMEND CORNER: The two sides of the weather

Apparently, summer is over.

We must have seen the end of summer, because we’ve had three days of overcast skies, cool temperatures and rainy skies. That sounds like fall to me, and I thought it was, until our daughter and her cousin out in Minnesota complained via Facebook that it’s way hot out there in the flatlands. They have been talking about 90s and heat advisories the last few days.

MY LOUSY WORLD: Anatomy of a self-diagnosis

You’ve probably heard the theoretical scenario offered by many a macho boyfriend, beleaguered husband or bitter ex. You know the one: “Lock your dog and your wife in the trunk and see which one is happiest to see you when you let them out.” Now, I would never condone locking either in your trunk, except in rare cases of saving ticket money by sneaking loved ones into a drive-in movie.

Field and Stream scribe blending a love of mysteries, fly fishing

It was during an assignment for Field and Stream magazine a few years back when Survival and Outdoors Skills Editor Keith McCafferty decided to finally write that novel he never quite got around to starting.

Lost football tickets in a game day crowd of 29,000-plus at the University of Wyoming last Saturday?

No problem. Even with a detour through Oregon.

AMEND CORNER: Protest marches, good and bad

Demonstrating against something or somebody isn’t as American as apple pie. It’s much more American than a mere pastry.

Even when one has led an exemplary life — gone to church, loved his mother, befriended strangers with leprosy — one (me as an example) occasionally stares into the rear-view mirror of a life and feels a certain shame. Whether an unkind word, a cruel prank, or an armed robbery, sad regret can set in.
