Tales from the ghettos of Clarkston

I've written before about growing up in one of Clarkston's ghettos and, back then it meant anywhere that wasn't located in the square mile of Clarkston proper (basically anywhere in Independence Township)....more >>

Obligatory Christmas Column #1,279,539

Where has the wonderment gone?

As I look back upon the thrilling holidays of yesteryear, I have come to believe those Christmases Past were, indeed, magical. They were always white with snow. Everything sparkled....more >>

December starts Christmas columns

Ah, the wonderment of youth

It's December already. The holiday season is upon us . . . and a tradition I like to keep is simply this: writing columns for Christmas and that means writing nice stuff. Nothing mean or snotty....more >>

What is the meaning of Don's ice scraper?

Pondering life's great mysteries

Reporters are schooled to ask questions, with the most fundamental being, who, what why, where, when and how. Or as we in the trade say, "The Five Ws and an H." When I was a younger man -- scratch that, when I was a child -- I used to ask a lot of "why" questions....more >>

Movember leads vet to help pet cancer group

And more local business news!

Rectum. Damn near ruined 'im. The other week I wrote about how -- ever the sheep, follower-type -- I joined the grow-your-moustache-Movember bandwagon. Which, is in effect, an effort to get men to go see their butt doctors and get their prostates checked out (amongst other things)....more >>

Past and Present

There are times (many actually) when I sit back and think, "I am doing better than I deserve." Halloween is one of those times of year when I'm thinking it more often. What gives, you are probably asking? Come on, Rush, Halloween is a wonderful time of year!

Halloween used to be kinda' fun, in a simple, prankish kind of way....more >>

Donuts make Don smile.

Remembering Domino Dots and three-year-old Sean

At the behest of my very own, personal physician, Dr. Marie Livieratos, out of Clarkston, I'm trying to me a little more healthy. I'm trying to move more, so three or four times a week I'll either ride my stationary bike for 45 minutes or go out for a three mile walk/jog (emphasis on the walk)....more >>

The Ig Nobels are out and Michigan represents.

Read and discover another incredible use for BACON!

Folks who have weekly subjected themselves to the ramblings of a mad man may remember one of my favorite times of the year is September. September is when the pointy-headed brainiacs out east (way out east in Cambridge, MA) get together and present the Ig Nobel Prizes....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Rush on my son. Rush on.

Why didn't I get the memo that Rush was gonna be cool? And, why wasn't invited to said cool party?

When I was but a wee lad growing up on the mean, graveled streets of Clarkston, in the ghettos known as Independence Township, my last name was something other kids could easily make fun of....more >>
