If you’re a subscriber to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, you might have noticed there’s no column from me today on the Voices page. Every once in a while, I let someone else take my spot on the page and take the week off from writing the column, and this week’s legislative session opening on redistricting came at just the right time.
So even though I’m still working this week, I’m getting a little rest and decompressing (but don’t bring up those insane gerrymandered maps some in the Ledge have in mind; that will spoil my chill). And of course I’m amusing myself.
Enjoy some laughs with me on the weirdness of the last couple of years.
I'm a retiree in his seventies. That may not be significant to many, since there is a bunch of us Baby Boomers around. However, in the year 2,000, when I received a diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma, I expected to be dead in three to five years.
