Opinion

One thing I’ve sometimes found baffling are people who make comments at public meetings and then don’t want it reported on. It’s the one word, “public,” that some people forget is in that aspect of a meeting. I’ve had it happen more than once where someone in all seriousness has asked if I needed...
When you tell someone that you’ve never flown before, their first assumption is that you’re scared of flying.
