The domestic terrorism that we witnessed Wednesday was always bound to happen. The feral creature who nurtured it had long signaled us that it was coming.
I love the Daily Courier. I love it despite dueling letters to the editor and the potpourri of Rants and Raves. Maybe especially because of those things!
For many of us, thinking about renewing our driver’s license rarely crosses our mind. Sure, we update it with a new address when we move and some change their name after getting married, but the first time most of us will actually renew our driver’s license is when we turn 65 years old.
