    Lots of folks are patting themselves on the back and are very excited about raising a half-million dollars for a basketball hall of fame. There was a fundraiser the other week for children’s cancer research. It raised about $33,000. Kind of tells where our priorities lie.

    Let’s strive to be self aware

    When did people forget how to be neighborly? At what point did a passing hello make people feel they have done their civic and social duty?

    For the first time in several years, I decided to watch the NCAA basketball tournament on TV: Primarily, the Kentucky-Louisville game.
    I had not watched the tournament recently because I had become a little disenchanted after watching a Duke-Marquette game several years ago in which the officials practically gave the game to Duke by calling foul after foul against key Marquette players in the first half. It was an absurd game and it was evident that the NCAA had ordained that Duke was to be the winner.
