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!

Regards,

Paper Plates: A Real Consumer Fraud

Unless the brand you and I peruse happens to be Chinet, it's safe to say that most people don't know how to buy paper plates. And unless it's sturdy, then the food you plan to eat will wind up somewhere on the floor.

For the life of me, who the devil came up with the idea of flat, thin paper plates? The real thin ones look like something a kid colors in art class. How does anything last on it? At least, the folks at Chinet had the right idea on what a paper plate should be if one is to be made out of paper. In general, the average paper plate that many people buy at grocery stores just happens to be a classic consumer fraud, and one of the biggest all-time. Plastic, temporary, disposable plates sound like a more reasonable idea if you plan to do a function for your group. Those should hang out better than your average paper.

My bosses at my workplace will be putting on a luncheon for the workers on Wednesday. They say they're going to provide plates. I am skeptical, however. This writer will stand ready with the real goods in case we have --- Shall we say? --- a potential disaster in the fold on that important day.
