In Memoriam: Sgt. Robert D. Sanchez

Someone I grew up with in grade school recently hit headlines again in our hometown.  

He grew up from the kid who joked around as a goofball to everyone and even had his own share of crude nicknames we all shared for fun, into an Army Sergeant who served five tours of duty, three in Iraq and two in Afghanistan.  

On Oct. 1, during combat with insurgents, he was killed by an improvised explosive device.

Ideas to change America and the world

Everyone always says that we’re all looking for the “quick fix.” The connotation is almost always negative, but what if it didn’t have to be? The July/August edition of The Atlantic has suggested 15 ideas on “How to Fix the World.”

1. Renting out your home instead of watching it go into foreclosure.
2. Deploying private military companies to act as “peacekeepers” throughout the world.
3. Giving up on Afghanistan ever having a democracy.

In other ridiculous news…

Watching the news sure can get you down sometimes. I suppose it’s important to know about the swine flu and the state of economy, but there’s so many other interesting things happening that we just never hear about. Here is an account of five recent events that didn’t get as much air time as they may have deserved.

1. Today is Odd Day: And you thought that every day was odd. Today literally is odd day. Today’s date (5/7/09) is one of six dates this century with three consecutive odd numbers. What a cause for celebration. Bust out the champagne! Maybe we’re all not ready to admit to enjoying something this nerdy. I will. I’ll admit it especially if we could have made it be a national holiday where we get to stay home and “celebrate privately.” What’s even more exciting is that Ron Gordon, who is really nobody in particular, is offering a prize. (If you have yet to begin celebrating you better hop on it.) The person or group who celebrates most enthusiastically will get…. $579!! Please contain your excitement!
