“Perused a story today about luxury cars that can be had for under $50,000, causing me to recall how long I puzzled and wondered what could possibly have been done to push the price of an Oldsmobile past $10,000 for the first time a lot of years ago.” — Clyde Peterson, Houston.
“Couldn’t help but notice the picture in The Post-Intelligencer of the Henry Class of ’57 the other day. Somebody needs to investigate the water supply out Henry way. That was one fit-looking bunch of reunioners!” — Clyde Peterson, Houston.
No doubt you’ve already noticed today’s Post-Intelligencer is thicker, heavier than normal for an edition that doesn’t include a large special section, like our Fact Book.
“The Trump impeachment adventure is certainly more efficient than the old-fashioned Watergate approach – the Watergate experience being a long process that involved extensive and efficient investigative reporting and roles fully and properly played by Congressional investigators and our cour…
“So, Mary Kate Ridgeway writes in her P-I food column on the history and merits of broccoli. Broccoli! I’ve never met Mrs. Ridgeway, but I fear her position on the broccoli matter means she and I are finished as pals without ever getting started.” — Clyde Peterson, Houston.
“Two things you don’t want to do in the world of athletics: 1) take the field against the Henry County Patriots, or 2) get into a cross-country race with anybody named Winders.” — Clyde Peterson, Houston.
“You ever do any clicking on that collection of announcements on the left side of The Post-Intelligencer homepage (www.parispi.net)? I haven’t much, but I did last Friday got quite a payoff. There was a piece on there via the Henry County Medical Center about Starla Roberson becoming certifi…
“Noticed in Tuesday’s ‘From The P-I files’ feature that 75 years ago, Mr. C. S. Russell was opening his new Pontiac dealership at 822 E. Wood Street here in Paris. That had to be a big deal, ’cause back in the day, a new Pontiac was the equivalent of one of today’s hot new BMW vehicles. Ask …
“I get quite a razzing from my grandkids about my continuing addiction to watching and re-watching my old Saturday westerns from the 1940s. Caught a Hopalong Cassidy yarn from 1944 on the tube today. Seems Sheriff Hoppy and all the good guys were standing down a bunch of bad guys who were be…
“Saw the picture of the winners of the Henry County Fair trivia teams competition in last Friday’s Post-Intelligencer and had to wonder, 1) will we being seeing these fellows in the International Trivia Olympics at some time in the future, and 2) are these trivia athletes aware that Alan Lad…
“Texas Congressman John Ratcliffe and President Donald Trump have reconsidered and withdrawn the idea that Ratcliffe should be the next national director of U.S. intelligence. That’s a shame. Given Ratcliffe’s Texas-sized descriptions of his abilities and experience, he could have easily end…
“Be on the alert! That nerdy looking guy at your door asking if he can cut your lawn just might be former Microsoft guy Bill Gates trying to pick up a few bucks to recover from the financial embarrassment of dropping from being the second richest person in the world all the way down to only …
“I gotta wonder about this stuff of people being told to go back their points of origin: Does that mean I should be learning Swedish, or just be brushing up on my Tipton County and Buchananese language skills?” — Clyde Peterson, Houston.
“Just read a learned piece from a couple of guys associated with the Hoover Institute at Stanford University — smart guys. They laid out a long-term outline for dealing with problems in Central America that are pushing people to our borders. It was all about aiding in improvements in the mec…
“Just read another spate of stories on the future of space travel, but you gotta wonder that since no space destination is known to have chocolate, West Tennessee barbecue or the likes of our own Old Buchanan, what would be the point of going there?” — Clyde Peterson, Houston.
“A few more whiz-bang, over-the-top, look-at-me proposals by some of the alleged 2020 Democratic contenders and they’re going to have to start having their debates in rubber rooms.” — Clyde Peterson, Houston.
“Did you see The Post-Intelligencer story on that study predicting global warming could kill off great chunks of the planet’s sea life? Expanding on that a bit: I wonder if by any lucky chance Asian Carp might turn out to be among the imperiled heat-sensitive aquatics?” — Clyde Peterson, Houston.
“You want to see what courage looks like? Head out to see the replicas of two of the ships that brought Christopher Columbus and his crews to the New World. The replicas of the Nina and the Pinta will be docked at Marker 66 Marina and Grill, 41 Marina Drive since May 24 through their departu…
