Don't Rush Me

Do something nice. This is Zach's gift to you.

Random acts of kindness and compassion on Dec. 4 and beyond!

I will admit it, I am emotionally retarded. To many I am distant. Stoic. I have shared my soul with only a few precious people. It's not that I don't feel, I am human. I just don't share well with others what is inside my coat of armor....more >>

Ballot committee forms for LGBT constitutional amendment

Time to come together not divide

I ended last week's chapter of the sacred texts known as Don't Rush Me (the column) thusly: So, I have been hearing about an effort afoot to open up and change the Michigan Constitution to put in verbiage stating something like, "It is unconstitutional to discriminate against anyone based on their sexuality, gender identity ....more >>

Me thinks I was mocked

Me and my Fashion maven ways, ta boot!

I have never claimed to be the sharpest knife in the drawer, the brightest bulb in the box, toughest kid on the block, the prettiest face in the mirror, nor the wittiest clown under the big top, BUT ....more >>

Feel the Bern?

Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton? It could happen

You know, I don't even know why I started writing -- no, thinking about writing -- this week's column. It is just way, too danged early to write about national politics (since this is a community publication)....more >>

OMMe! Daylight Savings Time and Halloween

(all neatly wrapped for you with a bow on top)

March 11, 2007 is a day burned into my memory. Much like Aug. 16, 1977. I remember those dates with sadness. I don't remember too many other dates, anniversaries or birthdays. I am a frivolous sort....more >>

Where does Denny find the time?

Tubgating and doing The Vinyl Experience

A few years ago, right here in the hallowed halls of Don't Rush Me-dom, I opined about this dude. This guy who is like a Detroit Lions superfan. His name, Denny Arney. I was just thinking about Denny this past Sunday, as your Detroit Lions finally broke into the winning column by downing the dreaded Chicago Bears, 37-34....more >>

Love affair over and kneeded advice

While fall in Michigan is really a thing of beauty, brilliant fired oranges, reds and yellows in the trees, a sky of blue and plaid shirts of flannel, it is also kinda a sad time, too....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Fall is when my fashion senses slay!

Women swoon when they see me struttin' down the street . . . ahem . . .

It must be genetic. There has to be something in my Deoxyribonucleic acid that makes me such an expert. My blue-collar dad was always fussy about how his clothes fit. The buttons on his shirt had to line up with his belt buckle and zipper on his trousers....more >>

Well now . . . maybe this is why my knees hurt!

"Don't do drugs . . . and don't jump off the garage roof."

For the past -- oh, three, four or five months my knees have hurt. First one, the right, then the other (which, if you're keep track, would be the left). And, well, it kinda bums me out, because I had started walking like four days a week and was getting really good at it! I tried not to say anything about it, but then a local gal who was educated and worked for a while as a Kinesiologist noticed my gait and brought it to my attention....more >>

Evoking the spirit of Hunter S. Thompson

Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, '16

Multicolored and whimsical clown cars twirl about, zigging and zagging pounding the walls inside my skull; piped in between my ears, circus music swirls around, skimming across the fast becoming smoother ridges of the glob of goo that once was my gray matter....more >>
