Those of us who write weekly columns know that coming up with topics can be problematic on occasion. This week was one of those times for me.
For the last few days, I thought I had a topic. I read a letter in the Mailbag section of the Glendale News-Press that got my journalist juices flowing. In her letter, Debi Devens believed that allowing President Obama to be heard in schools equated to indoctrination of our children. I was all set to blast the "Gary Fury" her way. Unfortunately, another reader, Claudette Moody, beat me to the punch with a fabulous and rational retort of her own. Rats!
With no other topic in mind, I was about to let my editor, Dan Evans, know that my well was dry and I had nothing to write about this week. But then, out of the parched topical desert of my mind came my personal lord and savior, North Star Destination Strategies. I could actually hear the choir singing in my mind.
