    I wasn’t there to see it, but I’d think that Dec. 7, 1941, was just like most other December days up in Bingham Canyon. I’m sure it was cold, and I’m sure families were stoking their coal burning stoves for warmth. I’m sure...

  • Cheap Shot | No Pain, No Gain

    I’d rather not talk about myself and my achievements. Agree, disagree or neutral? The thing I hate about taking personality tests is my fear of failure. What if I flunk? After coloring in 240 question bubbles with my No. 2 pencil, I’m afraid...

    Dear Mexican: I was born in beautiful El Paso, and my parents are from Juaritos. I always wondered why Mexican restaurants en los Estados Unidos use queso amarillo—which I associate with los Estados Unidos—on their food instead of queso asadero...

  • Economics You Need to Know About

    I am sick and tired of reading the same rehashing about you know who. So, from here on in, at least to the end of this column, there will be no politics.
