I regret that I have been unable to post as frequently as I would have liked since early October. Until then, I had been keeping pace with last year’s rate of posting. Starting in early October of last year, I published a flurry of posts in regard to the 2012 United States Election for presidential electors.
One major reason I have not posted much this month is that I have been preoccupied with school board matters. I have been focused on completing much unfinished business before my term expires in early December.
In the meantime, I gave a speech at the local annual
Dinner on Italian cuisine was particularly influenced by the Discovery of the
New World and the subsequent introduction of foods into the Old
World. I observed how this
one relatively small area demonstrates that there had been no lasting effect on
both worlds of any legendary discoveries that may have occurred prior to that
whose great navigational skills effectively bridged the two hemispheres
permanently. It was the fourth time that
the Columbus Day Dinner Committee, which comprises several local Italian
organizations, including Holy Rosary Parish, has invited me to provide
historical remarks. The event has
occurred since 1956 and raises funds to preserve the Columbus
State in Reading’s
(Penn’s Commons). I was honored by the invitation. The speech was well received. City Park
I plan new posts analyzing the Syrian crisis and the
U.S. budget deal. Thank you for visiting my blog.
