What is our purpose in life?

What is our purpose in life?

    I believe it was back in 1939 when a very popular author, James Thurber, wrote a short novel about an unusual man he named “Walter Mitty.” It became so well read that it was produced for Broadway, made into a movie around 1947 — which I remember watching — and remade in 2013. If you’re one of those purists, I guess you won’t like my position, but I really liked Danny Kaye and Ben Stiller, who played the role of Walter Mitty. I suppose my reason for being so attached to the character is that, like many others (I hope ...

Kathy Bradley: Little black dresses don't prepare you for everything — especially not tragedies

    It is a fashion rule that has been around so long, it is, like a politician, known by its initials: LBD. Little black dress. Every woman has to have one. Young or old or in-between, Southerner or Yankee, debutante or farm wife. You can dress it up or dress it down. A well-made LBD in a classic style will last forever, and you will be prepared to accept any invitation.

Remembering radio in the 1940s

Remembering radio in the 1940s

    When I was a little over 5 years of age, I remember lying on the floor in front of our big old Zenith radio listening to whatever just happened to be on that evening. The adults liked the news and stuff like: "Allen’s Alley," "George Burns and Gracie Allen," while Shirley Jo and I loved "Little Orphan Annie," "The Lone Ranger," "Superman" and the comedy programs. I’ll never forget that one evening when President F.D. Roosevelt announced the bombing of Pearl Harbor, “A day that will live in infamy!” It was only a few weeks later when ...
