POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 29, 2016 PAGE 13 News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) "Grizzly Adams" Has Leflt the Woods I can remember back in the '70s, my parents returning home after the 4:00 pm Sat- urday mass and supermarket shopping, sitting down in the living room, and putting the TV set on to Grizzly Adams fol- lowed by The Lawrence Welk Show. My parents seemed to love Grizzly Adams, but I never knew why. I watched it a few times, and actor Dan Haggerty looked like what Grizzly Adams should look like. It wasn't a very good TV show, but it did build an audience. I do remember he had a great beard. When I heard Haggerty passed away, I remembered how much my parents loved that show. They and apparently many others as well. Ruling-Class Republicans Against Ted Cruz Recently, the Republican ruling-class threw out the name of former Senator Bob Dole in an attempt to rip apart the Ted Cruz campaign. Basically say- ing that Cruz would be "Barry Goldwater 1964" for the party's chances in the fall. I could think of another analogy, how about "the Bob Dole of 1996." Even a famous ex-Buffalo Bills QB couldn't save Dole that year. Many thought they would have done better with Kemp actually quarterbacking that campaign. Racial Foolishness I O l One would think the follow- ing could never happen on American campuses in the school year 2015-2016, but that is sadly not the case. This story first appeared earlier this month in the NY Post. Apparently, racial segrega- tion is now the news back on campuses. In an event de- signed to shame supposedly racist whites, a retreat was held recently at the University of Oregon, open only to white students. Meanwhile, a "racial aikido" retreat was also held to "empower people of color." Is this stuff legal, ethical, moral, or does it just plain stink? I wonder how long before separate bathrooms and water fountains are available accord- ing to one's race? We have com. e so far but apparently not nearly far enough, huh? Produce or Product? Big story recently down in Texas when a supposed produce truck crossed over from Mexico into Texas. It contained all the fixings for a great salad that would have made Bugs Bunny go daffy. Get it? Daffy[ Border agents with drug sniffing dogs intercepted a half nillion in pot, stashed in packag. :s that looked like carrots. The )ad guys are getting very creati re, eh? Street value c ~ the make- believe carrots: $4 )9,000. Stop- ping them: Pricel( ss. Trouble Brew~ ng at BLS There was a bi ; news story last week in the t ~oston Herald over racial issue: brewing in- side the corridors ,f Boston Lat- in School. Accor ing to many tweets, tensions a e building up inside the buildi~ g. Here's somethir g to take note of. No one insic ~ the school should ever be ,'.sing the N- word. White kids shouldn't be using it and neither should African-Americans. Isn't it the N-word for them, too? It is time for all the students to respect each other and work together, preparing for their dreams and aspirations. Sadly, these kinds of issues are cropping up all across the country. We are still far from that dream of judging each other by our character and not our color. Someday soon, hopefully, we will get there together. That is my dream and aspiration. David Bowie RIP "There's a starman waiting in the sky. He'd like to come and meet us. But he thinks he'd blow our minds." -- David Bowie (1947-2016) Democrats Fail to See Obvious If you listen to Democratic spin, most of Trump's strength lies with the most radical fringe of the Republican Right. How- ever, Trump's base is much wider and thicker. He is appeal- ing to frustration felt across the board. Even with people who don't necessarily agree with much of what he says. They just love hearing him give it to those who have been running our gov- ernment badly for so long. This is not a liberal-conservative issue. It is one born of anger. Many Americans have now come to the conclusion that there is a ruling-class in Wash- ington, De, and it is bi-parti- san, too. Why do you think both Trump and Bernie Sanders are doing so well? Latest polls show that even Trump is doing well with Demo- cratic, Independent and non- partisan voter. Trump has tapped into the voters who feel they have been *&%%$# by Truth About Social Security (Continued from Page 1) bonds in the trust fund which could have been resold to raise money to pay benefits to the baby boomers. But none of the surplus money was saved and invested. Every dollar of the surplus Social Security revenue was channeled directly into the general fund where it was spent as general revenue on whatever the government chose to spend it on. The bottom line is that the trust fund holds nothing of value which can be sold to raise money. The $2.7 trillion that was supposed to be avail- able for paying benefits to the boomers was instead looted by the government and spent for non-Social Security purposes. About Allen W. Smith, PhD Allen W. Smith, author of "Raiding the Trust Fund: Us- ing Social Security to Fund Tax Cuts for the Rich" (www. ironwoodpublications.com), has devoted much of his adult life to promoting economic educa- tion. He taught economics for 30 years before retiring from Eastern Illinois University in 1998 to become a full-time writer. "Understanding Inflation and Unemployment," Smith's first book, became an alternate selection of Fortune Book Club when it was published in 1976. ~Understanding Economics" (Random House; 1986) was used in more than 600 schools in 48 states. In recent years, Smith has focused his research and writing on government finance and Social Security. politicians regardless of party. I could see Trump voters sit- ting out November if the GOP beats up on him and keeps the nomination out of his hands. There are millions of middle- class families struggling out there trying to get by, and who have not seen any real recovery following the 2008 recession. Add those at the bottom, blue- collar workers, minimum wage workers, and together you have a solid voting base to grow from. Trump is saying what the other candidates wish they could say. The Trump machine is working because most Ameri- cans are looking for real leaders again. Can Trump win? It is not im- possible. Is he qualified to be president? After Barack Obama, who isn't? This may still be Hillary's election to lose because nobody is better at pulling a loss than HiUary. She was supposed to be crowned in 2008. We all know how that turned out. Trump has changed the politi- cal dynamics this year and I am grateful for that. NY Magor Goes for GoM Over Cruz IVY Slap By now the whole nation has heard of that kick in the pants that Ted Cruz gave to New Yorkers when he said Trump had NY values. However, recent- ly thinking ahead to his own upcoming election, Mayor Bill de Blasio sent out a fundraiser letter stating, "Here's what Ted Cruz doesn't understand about us. We are proud of our New York values. If you agree, please chip in $20, $10, or whatever you can afford." Now there's a bad NY value, right? End Quotes "I will absolutely apologize, sometime in the hopefully dis- tant future, if I'm ever wrong." -- Donald Trump, Tonight Show, September 11, 2015 "When I take someone into the operating room, peel down the scalp, take off the bone flap and open the dura, I'm operat- ing on the things that make the person who they are; it's not the covering that makes them who they are." -- Dr. Ben Carson LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Probate and Family Court Middlesex Division 208 Cambridge Street East Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 758-5800 Docket No. MI15P6030EA Estate of LYDIA BACA Date of Death February 14, 2003 INFORMAL PROBATE PUBLICATION NOTICE To all persons interested in the above captioned estate, by Petition of Petitioner Anthony Baca of Hsmet, CA.

A victory in Denver seemed a mere formal- ity. My only real concern was how to get through the week, the anticipation of Sunday's game continually on my mind. A realist, beck, a glass half- empty kind of guy, I convinced myself that the Broncos and their quarterback Peyton Man- ning, were ripe for the picking. In my defense, any sane in- dividually would have felt the same given Manning's body of work in 2015 as prime evidence. Following the Patriots failed expedition into the Colorado mountains, a 20-18 loss which secured the Broncos a place in Super Bowl 50, I feel as though my last column, arrogantly guaranteeing a win that never came, may have jinxed the Patriots. I feel like Eddie Mush. Yes, that loveable loser from the Bronx Tale film, a guy that couldn't pick a winner even at the finish line. Although I didn't suit up at Sports Authority Field, I feel as though I dropped the ball. Sorry Patriots fans, you got mushed. Put ME in the bathroom ...
