Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!




So NOW It Can Be Told Who Really Is Running America

Posted 12-31-2021 at 08:40 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

My goodness, I think Newsmax's Dick Morris may be on to something. Your writer should have known who the current Chief of Staff is for the bogus presidential "administration" installed right now.

That's right. It is Ron Klain. And it's discovered that he is making the decisions for Joe Biden*. He's the puppeteer. He's Edgar Bergen and Plugs is Charlie McCarthy. He's the messenger and not Barack Obama or Susan Rice as first believed. I've got a...

Gas Station Brands Which I'd Like To See Make A Comeback

Posted 12-31-2021 at 01:47 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

First off, I know that it's not likely to happen. Secondly, I also know that gone are the days of several different service guys who fill up your tank, clean off your windshield, and put air in your tires, but we won't specifically go there.

Don't you just miss Fina? You remember that brand. They used to have Pflaaash back in the olden days. In Texas, a lot of the old Fina stations I see around have been replaced by the Alon brand. Not sure where that one...

Remembering John Madden: Always An NFL Great

Posted 12-30-2021 at 07:14 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

He's been successful all around the National Football League, from the coach on the sidelines to one of the great analysts on the TV games. You and I have even seen him on the Lite Beer commercials from back in the day.

And, of course, who could possibly forget Frank Caliendo with his hilarious impressions of this NFL great?

I'm referring to John Madden, larger-than-life football legend who has a Super Bowl ring to his credit from his days with the Oakland...

It's Time For San Diego To Revisit The Idea Of A New Airport

Posted 12-29-2021 at 07:25 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I may not live in San Diego, but I still can't help but notice one impediment to a city's economy and tourist ventures, and none more so than in America's finest city. Have you seen how landlocked San Diego International Airport is? Every city must have a vibrant and functional airport to make things happen.

In many U.S. cities, we've seen numerous renovations and expansions to different airports, a few of which have already been mentioned here on Case's Column. ...

Hilarious Bit With A Hippopotamus

Posted 12-27-2021 at 02:47 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Evidently, someone out there had an encounter with a hippopotamus. Maybe it's one that he didn't get for Christmas.

In any event, I saw this situation on YouTube that made the Running of the Bulls look like a church picnic. Here below is that vid for you, in the interest of fostering many a laugh amongst the C-D brethren and sisteren.


Gotta love suddenly-aggressive animals.
