BYH to the doctors, nurses and staff working in Vidant’s surgical department, admissions and 2-West. My son recently had surgery and everyone we came in contact with was amazing and put this Mama’s heart at ease. Thank you!

Bless my heart, I went up to the receptionist to tell her I was there to sign in for my doctor’s appointment. “Which doctor?” she asked. “No, I’m here to see a regular doctor.”

BYH to the protesters burning the American flag in front of the White House. So many people have really suffered to give you the right to act that way. Shame on you ... but we all know: "You can't fix stupid."

Public golf courses often fail because they are not exclusive. Being a member of a golf course carries a certain swagger, a gravitas you cannot achieve by paying a mere green’s fee. Wearing a golf shirt with a country club logo puts you above the common masses. The city has no business in th…

I always put out my American Flags on the Fourth of July but fear this year they will be offensive to some. What a world we do live in. But I have decided to go ahead and be offensive. This is America after all and I do have some rights remaining, I think. The only thing I have to be ashamed…

BYH, Cam Newton on getting a new job even though it’s only for a year. Maybe you’ll remember that you are a football player and not a fashion icon.

A no BYH to those drivers playing loud, vibrating music that disturbs other people’s peace! It’s ridiculous and it infringes on my rights to peace and quiet, especially while I am sleeping. I am offended by the loud vibrating ugly noises and I am going to protest about this too!

The clergy has been denouncing racism and segregation for as long as I can remember. And yet each Sunday morn the black folks go to their favorite church and the white folk go to theirs. I’m beginning to think that the white folk like their way or worship and the black folk like theirs. And …

As June draws to a close, I’m reflecting on how inherently political Pride month is and how especially clear that has been in 2020. Pride was born out of the Stonewall Riots and the demonstrations against police brutality and the homophobia, transphobia and racism the LGBTQ+ community has faced.

I look forward to the day when we can go back to the church house. Hopefully the preacher will let us out early so we can once again do battle with the Methodists over the good pieces of chicken on the buffet line. I have been in training learning new blocking moves that should get us the be…

BYH, taking over this country was even easier than Putin, the Vichy Republicans and their lackey traitor in chief thought it would be. Who knew our democracy was like a baby in a stroller just waiting to be snatched, just flip less than an average of 2 votes per voting station across three k…

BYH Gov. Cooper, I won’t be complying with your mask order seeing as I have a “medical condition” that exempts me. I get anxiety when the government tries to take away my freedom. Wear a mask? I can’t breathe!

BTH of everyone that wears masks. Thank you for being concerned about the welfare of others.

BYH, people in Asian countries wear masks even when they have a simple cold, out of consideration for others. No one cries about being oppressed. No one takes up arms and storms government buildings. No one mocks anyone for wearing a mask.

BTHs of all the dedicated, caring staff at Brookdale West Arlington for taking care of our senior citizens and loved ones during a critical and dangerous pandemic. And BTHs of all staffers at other senior living facilities everywhere. And Brookdale, thanks for taking care of my mama, whom I …

Bless our hearts, the world was aghast when Christians removed the memorial statue of Pontius Pilate.

Bless your hearts to those who won’t wear face coverings either because they don’t trust or like Gov. Cooper (understandable) or they follow the poor example of our imbecile president. A good reason to wear a mask is to support ECU football! If we are in a wave of COVID cases when football s…

BYH to those who say wearing a mask violates your rights. I’m with you. In fact, wearing pants violates my rights and I know you will stand up for my rights too.

BYH to the writer claiming that FBI statistics say blacks killed by whites is 77 per thousand and blacks killed by blacks is 550 per thousand. The FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2018 (last full year available), Table 1, shows that overall murders in the U.S., regardless of race, are 5 per 100,…

Help me out, folks. Why do people eat Chinese food with chopsticks? Forks were invented about 4,000 years ago, presumably to replace sticks and fingers as eating utensils. I am obviously missing some information, so please fill me in.
