I was a bit awe-struck Thursday.
That’s because I was sitting at the table with a couple of celebrities – Susan L. Taylor and Samir Husni.

Getting rid of some old magazines
Every now and then I am shamed into doing what I need to do. Such a moment came when I ran across a cartoon — I think it was in the New Yorker.

The indignant wife says to the husband, “You and your National Geographics!”
Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
