It’s the season for gratitude (finally!)

It’s the season for gratitude (finally!)

Hey, it’s November and whenever November rolls on in, I usually need to figuratively slap myself in the face; get my head out the muck and grime of everyday living and taste the proverbial coffee and smell the roses. November is a good time to remember it ain’t all bad. And, things could be a […]

Blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Captain’s Log, Stardate 2020-1102: There. Is. Only one. Day left. The question we have asked ourselves is, “Can we survive Election 2020?” * * * I send this exciting chapter of Don’t Rush Me into the hallowed halls of Don’t Rushmedon on Monday, November 2. Mothership Earth is still spinning in the cosmos. Asteroids are […]

Stupid coronavirus.

Stupid coronavirus.

Yup. It’s true. I sometimes get lost. It’s not that I don’t have a decent sense of direction, it’s just sometimes I enjoy the journey and forget to pay attention. It’s the same thing nowadays as it was when I was just a wee, little man. Back in the days before there was a Heather […]

A little ouchy time with Mr. Rush

A little ouchy time with Mr. Rush

So when I heard the sign-in nurse lady say, “When was the last time you’ve been to the hospital,” my first response was, “For myself?” Then, as she looked up from her computer, maybe a little annoyed, I added, “The last time I was in the hospital for myself was when I was born.” I […]

I think it’s time to lighten up a little

I know I ain’t the only one who thought this three weeks ago when the National Football League opened up their 2020 season — however, as the Bandwagon Jumper In Chief it’s incumbent on me to regurgitate what we were thinking then . . . In this crazy, turned upside down world (thank you Kung […]

Okay, maybe technology ain’t my forte

Okay, maybe technology ain’t my forte

Yeah, I know I’m not the sharpest bulb in the box, nor the brightest knife in the kitchen, but gosh-darn-it I never thought I was so dull. The last few weeks have tested my confidence in my sticktoitiveness and the deductive reasoning which has helped me, lo, these many years. Don’s Case Against Himself, Exhibit […]

Time to ditch the Bald Don look

Time to ditch the Bald Don look

  The other day I posted online, it was time to get rid of the Bald Don look. I have let the chromedome column mugshot go here in the hallowed halls of Don’tRushMedom because, in our angst-ridden times, I thought it might make some of you guys smile. Only my barber knows, but — since […]

Wait, what? Some positive news to share?

Wait, what? Some positive news to share?

In this tipsy, turvy world of turmoil, anger, angst and untrust (thank you politicians and COVID-19), you may not think there are good things going on. Au contraire, mon ami! I know we all have been fed more and more negative news to keep us agitated against one another — fear seems to be the […]

If you don’t know how to vote, you probably shouldn’t

If you don’t know how to vote, you  probably shouldn’t

Last Friday, yours truly,  like every other media outlet reporter, broadcaster in the state received a press release from our very own Secretary of State, Jocelyn Benson. The release was headlined: Rejected absentee ballot numbers highlight need for legislative changes. Followed by this subhead: Majority of rejections could be easily fixed with changes to law. […]

Well Dangerous Don, you did it again!

Well Dangerous Don, you did it again!

Oh gosh, what was it? Two weeks ago I penned a column, opening my heart to the public and admitting, yup, I your hero, wears a mask when going to the store, in the restaurant, etc. Wrote I, “Personally, cause I am the only person I can control, I wear a mask when I go […]
