Transgender Question Still Up In Air

Less than a year ago I wrote about the controversy of transgendered people in sports. I got crucified over it, but what opinion doesn’t get you that with today’s cancel culture? To sum up, I pointed out the inherent unfairness of allowing male to compete against female. If you have followed the issue, then you…

Timmons Back And Wandering Around

Notes scribbled on the back of an EKG printout . . . * * * TO PARAPHRASE the late Jerry Garcia, what a long and strange trip it’s been . . . although I’m relatively certain we’re talking two very different kind of trips. The short answer to the question so many of you have…

Hammer Pays A Visit To The Missus . . .

EDITOR’S NOTE: Tim Timmons will be returning soon. He underwent quadruple bypass surgery and is on the mend. In his stead this week, his wife Linda reports on an unexpected visit from a very familiar face.

Tiptoeing through the tulips . . .

Scattershooting while missing the wonderful work of Bob Collins . . . * * * FOR THE record, I’ve never been confused with Tiny Tim (Google him, millennials – Baby Boomers remember him . . . and probably wish they didn’t). My hair was never that long. I sang bass in the choir. And I…

Notes found scribbled during the bombardment of Khe Sanh . . .

The Paper of Montgomery County

You know, this didn’t use to be true, but I think it’s a blanket statement that applies to a lot more of us than it used to. We love our country, but struggle with our government. It certainly applies to the hired hands in Washington, but it filters down as well. Once again Indiana politicians…

Life and other deep subjects . . .

The Paper of Montgomery County

Scattershooting about the meaning of life . . . and other deep subjects (like, why do hot dogs taste better with coney sauce . . . and why are some coney sauces sweet while others are not) . . . * * * WHETHER WE are talking about our paper in Crawfordsville or The Times…

Timmons missing in action

The Paper of Montgomery County

Tim Timmons is missing in action this week, but he must be hiding somewhere warm and out of this chilly weather because we can’t find him or his column anywhere. Hopefully, we’ll find him wandering around and will have his column back and ready for next week.

This, that and pondering ‘tuthers . . .

The Paper of Montgomery County

Just scattershooting while wondering whatever happened to Alfred E. Neuman . . . * * * WOW, IT’S amazing how life changing a . . . life-changing event is (careful, no one ever accused me of being the smartest guy in the room). For those who don’t follow these weekly ramblings, I had a heart…
