Thank you!
I offer my take on the real meaning of POLITICS:

POLI |päle| -- ORIGIN from Greek: meaning MANY

TICS |tiks| -- ORIGIN from Dutch: meaning little parasitic BLOOD SUCKERS

Ergo: POLITICS = MANY LITTLE BLOOD SUCKERS

I’m sure ol’ Hoyt is in Heaven now, unless he committed an egregious faux pas by taking off his shoes at the Pearly Gate.

Comment on Our church was named for Robert E. Lee — here is how we changed it by Hank Foresman http://likethedew.com/2018/01/18/our-church-was-named-for-robert-e-lee-here-is-how-we-changed-it/#comment-47257 Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:34:00 +0000 http://likethedew.com/?p=68658#comment-47257 Doug I was Baptized and Confirmed in the Church, my parents married there, my Great Grandfather designed the present church. Several years ago, I wrote a hasty letter to Jimmy Farrar arguing the name should be changed--I regret that letter. Changing the name back to Grace is the right and proper thing. Like many things in the South, the name was changed by a succeeding generation and often for the purpose of imposing the domination of white southerners over their African-American brothers and sisters. I hope that the church can survive and flourish as it will always be my church regardless of its name. Henry J. “Hank” Foresman, Jr.

Comment on Andy Griffith’s Lost Episode: The Death of Helen Crump by DocBVN71 http://likethedew.com/2009/06/15/andy-griffith-the-lost-episode/#comment-47253 Thu, 11 Jan 2018 14:47:00 +0000 http://likethedew.com/?p=3416#comment-47253 Anyone who is even a minimal fan of the Andy Griffith show can see this alleged scrip is a crock of you know what. While there is an attempt to tie it into some historic episodes of the show like the pickle story, nothing in the words describing Helen as a person remotely fits with how the actual writers portrayed the Helen Crump character during the series. Helen being a thief, Reverend Tucker not being able to come up with anything nice to say about Helen implying no one knew her to be a nice person, even the way her death was announced. None of that fits with the years of writing style used during the run of the series. I can’t believe this is a long lost script, it reads more like a long lost imposter.
