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, I'll set aside a place here 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!

Regards,

First, everybody, the good news. Our buddy shoe01 unveiled some updates in our Lubbock forum threaders. This:

That's all fine and good. Things are robust in this small Texas city while still waiting for that big burst that puts it over the top.

Now, Lubbock, can your city's planners, public works gurus, and...

The Solar Eclipse Happens Next Monday

Posted 08-14-2017 at 10:20 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 08-16-2017 at 04:23 AM by case44

A big event is going to happen in one week. We have not seen such a big doing in, oh, about 760 years.

And it would be dangerous to try to see it because you just can't look directly at it. I'm talking about the solar eclipse. Yep. Next Monday, the solar eclipse will be visible, in full, in many parts of the United States. My area will just get a partial. Telescope jockeys and stargazers will sure have a field day, but anyone can try to take a moment...

From The Wrecking Crew to "Burning Bridges "and "Gentle On My Mind", Glen Campbell wasted no time making a name for himself in the music world.

The artist put out an incredible and versatile career which spanned fifty years. He spent some...

Gilcrease Extension Finally Needed In Tulsa

Posted 08-07-2017 at 08:06 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Tulsa planners and Oklahoma turnpike officials are all smiles by now. One important missing link will be missing no more in T-Town.

The Gilcrease Expressway will, once and for all, be a complete western loop around the city. A final link between U.S. Highway 412 and Interstate 44 will finally get built. Designs are done, and now, the dirty work begins. It is to be built as a turnpike in West Tulsa and will also connect with a portion still under construction...

Democrats Continue To Give Us Reasons Not To Vote For Them

Posted 08-07-2017 at 01:07 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 08-08-2017 at 04:27 AM by case44

It is a group of people who won't accept the fact that they've lost a presidential election which had taken place nine months ago. As the average normal person, mainly those conservative or independent, would look at it, you'd have to wonder why anyone with the mentality of the liberal left would live, think, and breathe like they do. In all my life in on this Earth, I've never seen people more unhinged, more delusional, and more out of touch than the liberals and those who...
