We moved to this fair island in June of 1974 when we had one child and a thick southern accent. One of my earliest memories is of being awoken by an odor so strong, it made me nauseous.

At the end of May, I wrote two columns on the enormous threat China is posing for America. I reviewed how their unfair and deceptive trade practices put us into increasing peril.
What’s with people not being able to tell the truth? It has become so bad in our society that an individual could be caught red-handed, plainly guilty, still in the act of the crime and yet before anyone blinks an eye, the excuses start flying trying to convince all onlookers that no wrongdoing had ever occurred.
