Using schools, students for fast-food ad campaigns
Students, teachers, principals and parents in the Jackson school district are participating in a clever fundraising campaign. It's innovative, and it probably will be successful. But is it appropriate? Last week, I, along with many other parents in the school district, received fliers about this new campaign. I also received an email from the principal encouraging my family to participate...
'Tapioca!' And now, the rest of the goofy story
Lots of things change as I grow older. And older. Bad news: I don't jog anymore. Wouldn't even think of it. Good news: My knees are in pretty good shape. At my age, you take what you can get. For a couple of years now, I have noticed -- and so has my wife -- a change in my sleep pattern. For lots of years I would go to bed and wake up eight hours later when the alarm went off...

But as with immigration, health care, and too much else, the inability to get democratic approval hasn't stopped the president. Now he and the EPA have announced a comprehensive climate change plan, not in the form of democratically adopted law, but in the guise of executive regulations...
USPS increasingly profitable
There's a lot of misleading "conventional wisdom" about U.S. Postal Service finances. Unfortunately, some of it was included in your otherwise excellent story about the proposed ending of mail processing at the USPS facility in Cape Girardeau. The story attributed Postal Service financial challenges to an infrastructure "deemed too large" (without attribution) and declining letter volume...
