Growing up in a world where irony and humor are banned by governmental fiat is a dangerous thing. It turns healthy human beings into all-purpose victims. I’ve written about this before, like when the kids at Yale and Mizzou got their pre-Paris attack 15 minutes of fame, which, by the way, they were annoyed at losing when the grown-ups took control of the news cycle.
A big thank you to all the employees of TOP Food. They became like family to many of us customers, and we will miss them. We wish them well in the future.
I would like to thank Randy Ross for declaring his candidacy for the County Commission seat now held by Frank Gordon. Grays Harbor County needs a person with his intelligence, integrity and maturity.

President Barack Obama is tired of all the critics who say his strategy to destroy Islamic State isn’t working.
