Don't Rush Me

The Wordsmith always rings twice

A cacophony of skulduggery sure to cause you consternation whilst you canoodle

For as long as I can remember I have always had a fascination with words. Tis true. Some words I like to hear I enjoy their sound, the way the vibrations tingle my little ear bones....more >>

Do female frogs croak?

Remembering the gameshow Hollywood Squares

I consulted my writing muse and asked for a topic for this week's Don't Rush Me. . . . We batted ideas back and forth. We touched on hot topics like gay marraige, July 4, make the most of life....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Tats, ghosts and puffy, white tennis shoes

First off kids, don't try this at home or for any high school or collegiate paper for which you will be graded. I am a highly trained and 40-hour a week salaried professional. What you are about to witness, if I can pull it off, is a column which weaves three, seemingly unrelated topics into one coherent lettered masterpiece....more >>

As Elvis used to say: A little less conversation, little more . . .


Elvis Presley sang a song in the late 1960s for the movie, Live a Little, Love a Little. The song, I believe written by Mac Davis (who also wrote In the Ghetto), was titled A Little Less Conversation....more >>

Death by any other name is still dead

or Death by Hamster!

I can't help it. I know it's not funny. I know it's not a joke. But "death by hamster" just sounds funny to me. I am bad. I'm going to Hell. But, I can't help it. In 2005, I remember reading about people who died because they received donated organs infected with some sort of yucky hamster disease....more >>

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 >>
