    HARMON: Oh so ‘simple’

    I have one comment about Ferguson and then I want to be on to other things. After three months of prepping “we the people,” the media got exactly what it wanted in the form of news, chaos, fires and police against civilians. We were manipulated into watching as though the ball was ...


    HARMON: It’s all about them

    A funny thing happened the other day. I was sitting in my favorite chair with my new favorite guy on my lap, the grandson, and happened to catch us both looking back from a mirror. He looked like I did 67 years ago -- and with my reading glasses down on my nose -- I looked a lot like my grandfather...


    HARMON: Dentists love Halloween

    Ah, it’s that time of year again. A time when we celebrate the changing of the leaves, brisk morning walks, college football and, of course, Halloween, or “The Dentists’ Dilemma,” (to pull or not to pull, that is the question).


    HARMON: The news blues

    It took me a while, years actually, to decide who drives the news in this wonderful country. And after many years of watching these folks we now call the “media,” I have to say they do. And they’re driving us crazy while they do it.


    HARMON: ISIS and fire ants

    If you don’t think we’re in trouble with this ISIS terrorism threat, consider this. Terrorists are as much like the fire ant as any enemy we’ve ever had and the fire ant continues to be a terror to Southern homeowners with no solution in sight.


    HARMON: Bedtime floaters of the third kind

    We seem to have lost all sense of common sense as we see a huge debate raging on whether to practice the left hook on the wife and beat the living daylights out of the kids. Common sense would tell one that neither of those activities stands a chance of turning out well. I suggest potential victims...


    HARMON: The ‘little guy’

    My laptop computer has a screen saver, a picture of the grandson sleeping at six months (I learned how to right click a few months ago). From time to time I’ll change it, but since his arrival it’s always of him. I’ve been out of town for a while so I get video updates of the...


    HARMON: Missed opportunities in Ferguson

    I’m writing this from a safe, comfortable porch, surrounded by glass with a view of a calm neighborhood near the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and if I could, I would get down on my knees (they’re worn out) and thank God for a safe, calm place in which to work.


    HARMON: We want a winner

    There is no doubt that sports dominates our culture right now. Tiger’s injured back, Favre’s jersey retirement, some NFL guy knocking out his wife. These things Americans will definitely pay close attention to. It’s the first thing we click on when going to the Internet while...


    HARMON: Important questions

    I traveled to Seymour, Tenn. last weekend to visit some old relatives. Some were still alive. Some had left the building we call earth years ago and laid at rest in Woodlawn Cemetery near Knoxville. Headstones marked the spots where four people who would never know the answers to so many “...
