    HARMON: A country for any man?

    There was a movie out a few years ago starring Tommy Lee Jones, called, “No Country for Old Men.” I suppose the title came from the fact that the particular part of the country in which the movie took place, the southern border, had become a rough place to live and old folks needed...


    HARMON: Time-strapped key element

    Almost anyone involved in today’s version of “education” will tell you that one important element in the process is to create an environment whereby students become inspired and seek out information for themselves, using the teacher as a guide in the search for knowledge. The...


    HARMON: A visit from the ‘god of pain’

    Ah, low back pain. Probably brought on by watching too much television news while slouching, or a dozen other stupid things I’ve done over the years.


    HARMON: Alive in the palm of your hands

    My sister and I were sitting in the living room of the old house at the beach. I had just walked through the kitchen and this weird feeling of someone’s absence came over me. I knew it was him, but had to ask her if she ever had that same feeling. “Of course,” she replied, &#...


    HARMON: Big show at the ‘Big House’

    It’s that time of year, sometimes an upper, sometimes a downer, depending on how I look at it. I’ve been known to ruin a few holidays but, sometimes it can’t be helped.


    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.
