Cut To The Chase


My latest in the Boston Herald.

(But, I absolutely promise, next time I post here it will be to give you something more than a ticket to go somewhere else. Promise! In the meantime, as always, your kind comments and/or letters to the editor will gain you good karma, unless God hates me, which I don't believe He does, so there you go.)

Soon, with (promise!) more better stuff.

That was pretty good stuff.
At least you got a byline.

Thanks, (not my uncle, but he may be yours) Skip. You've always been one of my most loyal readers, and I can't thank you enough for that.

Hilary said...

Your articles are always great, Jim. And you gave me a good idea with this one. Thanks for that.

Jackie said...

I just left you a message on FB.
I tried to leave a comment at the Herald, and I was unsuccessful. I will try again tomorrow to post a comment there.
The article touched my heart.
Truly.
Love,
Jackie

Hilary - Thanks! It always surprises me when somebody says something like that, but I sure do appreciate it :-)

Jackie - You're the best. Please, don't go out of your way. You've been more than kind in leaving so many wonderful comments already!

Sell it...sell it. Now I will go and read it and try to post a comment if they let me without having to register or something.

Suldog said...

Craig - Thank YOU.

Tabor - Likewise!

Joanna Jenkins said...

A perfect column for the holidays.
Thanks, jj

Suldog said...

Joanna - Thanks (and the comment is, of course, very much appreciated!)

I'll leave my comment here, rather than tussle with the BH web site! Great article, everyone should read it. So sad that there are people in that desperate situation, I can't imagine not having a home to go to, a roof over my head, food on the table, and family around me. There are no homeless people living on the street in my small town, but I'm sure I'll come across some when I'm in Toronto next weekend.

Suldog said...

Shammickite - Yeah, I know the website can be a hassle :-)

Thanks for the kind words.

Ruby said...

Sorry Jim, I was unable to comment on the article :((
This is one of the best articles I have read on Charity and the beginning where you say about the really needy is very true. Great article!!

Suldog said...

Thank you, Ruby!
