Sunny and 80 degrees for Memorial Day?

Not quite and stuff about poppies

I asked a question in a my headline, and I think it was an appropriate question, "Sunny and 80 for Memorial Day?" The answer, sad to say is, "No." Weather prognosticator Swami Don says this weekend while, reverent and solemn, will be kinda sucky (which also means it will be sorta good)....more >>

Clarkston readers want to know: What is an appropriate question

And, Rush is here to give the answer

What is an appropriate question? When I was a young cub reporter working for Big Jim Sherman, Sr., smack dab outta' college, fresh with youthful idealism, a journalism and marketing degree, a pocketful of pens and a reporter's note pad I had a number of "beats....more >>

Dangblabit! I missed World Naked Gardening Day

Promoting 'wholesome and unashamed acceptance of the human body'

Just goes to show my old man, dear old Pops Rush, was right, lo' those many years ago when he said, "Son, you'll learn something new every day." (Or something like that -- he died in 1996, so I can change his quotes to fit whatever context I need without fear of him correcting me....more >>

Michiganians, hear me now!

I cannot vote for Prop 1 on May 5, 2015

As any one who has drank from the fountain of knowledge that is the column called Don't Rush Me can attest, I ain't the brightest firefly in the night sky. Those who thirst for wisdom and higher insight rarely have their need sated from reading what I lay down with my trusty keyboard....more >>

Praise be, Tax Freedom Day has come our way

Now we start working for ourselves

Some how, some way and for some years now, I always get notice informing me when you and I stop working to pay the government, and start working to help ourselves and our families....more >>

Legislating thought dangerous? Nah, inevitable

" . . . nor shall the full and equal rights of conscience be in any manner, or on any pretext infringed."

I always thought one of the nifty things about living in America, as a citizen of these here United States, was the freedom to be "Me" or the freedom for you to be "You." Carrying that notion a bit further, is the freedom to think, feel and express myself as I see fit....more >>

A nation of marshmallow soft, hoity toitys?

Poop-scoopin' builds character

We are becoming a "soft" nation. An ocean of "wimps" and "hoity toitys" (whoever they are) will soon be upon us. No longer will we be a nation of beer and burgers -- everybody will want Chablis and crumpets (whatever they are)....more >>

Yoga Pants, Part 2 (no foolin')

The good, the bad and the disgusted!

Okay you out there in Readerland, you may now call me "Don, Don, the fashion mon." Or Don, Fashion Nazi -- your call (and sorry for the phonetics up there). But, who woulda thunk when I asked, "Moms, Dads you know yoga pants put on display for the entire world to see, the shape and every contour of your daughter's undercarriage -- front and back -- don't you?" that all fashion hell would break loose? Well, some did....more >>

The saga of yoga pants and your daughter

Where's the line between freedom of expression and over exposure?

Every once in a while, even a highly skilled, trained and veteran column writer like me thinks, "Rut-ro, Raggy. What am I gonna' write about now?" Aside from the easy, Scooby Doo reference, life isn't a cartoon....more >>

Family, magic and politics

(oh, and call your state rep today!)

I went to A Bean To Go in downtown Lake Orion the other morning for a cup of coffee. The coffee is awesome; the atmosphere everything you'd want for a coffee shop -- old brick walls, wooden floors, big windows, and lots of space....more >>
