Jack Miller

A Collection of Poems by Jack Miller

As a young man, I would never have admitted to writing poetry or singing love songs to my wife, but at the age I am now I can confess that I still do both. The poems I chose to put in my books are ones that do not need to be deciphered, and some people might think of them as too simple. I do feel obliged to inform the reader that some editors agree with that point of view, and some of the poems were rejected by several publications who know a lot more about poetry than I do. I am from Missouri, however, and have to be shown, so I invite criticism from anyone who cares to give me their comments.

No New Facts in National Geographic’s ‘Killing Lincoln’ [REVIEW]

After watching the television show 'Killing Lincoln' last night, I can officially say I felt cheated. I believe the story, as well as the Kennedy assassination, have been exploited and over-analyzed for years, and people like me only watch shows about them in the hope that the author has gained some insight or uncovered some new fact that will add some interest to the subject.

One More Reason People Dread Putting Up Christmas Lights [OPINION]

I have spent several days putting up my outside Christmas lights, and I have become what my grandmother referred to as "flumixed" which is a more polite way of saying how I felt earlier today.

Were Election Projections Announced Too Early During Election Coverage? [OPINION]

The election is now behind us, and after getting a chance to cover the election results from the Pettis County Courthouse, I had the chance to finally watch the national coverage. I have to say, this will not be a rant on the results and whether I agreed with them or not because I think you have received enough of that in the last 24 hours.  However, some of you wanted to talk about the coverage, especially the national items.

One of the big buzz words yesterday on television and radio stations was the word "projections."  I find it interesting that yesterday, as you flipped through the channels every TV station was trying to get ahead and project winners based on exit polls.  While exit polls are a valuable tool to try and guess on how one will win or lose a state, I have to wonder whether this is good practice.

Are Wet News Anchors Really Neccesary? [OPINION]

Is it just me, or is it a little silly to see a newsman knee deep in flood waters doing a news report on an approaching storm like Hurricane Sandy? Do they really think we don't know what a flooded street looks like?

No Honor Among These Thieves: Looters Raid Mark Twain Apartment Complex

Usually there is a line that even the lowest criminal will not cross.  That line is the one that takes advantage of a tragedy. In the police report for July 26, 2012, there was one of those stories that points out that we have someone in this area who has stooped that low.

A Dollar General For Your Thoughts

Let the griping begin. The Dollar General at 3rd and Osage is going away and is getting replaced by the one on North Ohio. When I was in the store earlier today I talked to a customer there, who could have voiced an opinion held by many people who are used to walking to the old store from the homes close to that store.

Where Are The Watermelons?

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed the small watermelons and grapes the stores are stocking now?

Let Them Eat Cake: Who’s Controlling the Gas Prices?

As someone who watches the price of gas closely for some sign of reason for the raising or lowering of the price, I have to say that I am confused most of the time.Most of us would believe it should have nothing to do with some Sheikh in a small Arab country catching a cold, but the oil companies will use that excuse if there is no other.
