Bullets

OPINION
By ART CALLAHAM | June 2, 2013
This was an absolutely great Mail Call item from Maugansville on May 6: “I'm very glad that Kellan Bermudez enjoys his job, being shot out of a cannon. That's very interesting to watch. But if he ever retired, where will they ever get another man of his caliber?” An old circus joke, but so funny nonetheless. In my life, I've heard the joke numerous times, but it still made me laugh.  However, after finishing the good laugh, I began to think about the concept of “a man of his caliber.” Is “high caliber” good or is “low caliber” better?

Other 'choices' not given to parents To the editor: On page A9 of the Sunday, Feb. 24, Herald-Mail, a writer bitterly complains that House Bill 655 would not allow children under the age of 13 to purchase a hunting license. The writer goes on to state that, "Just who wants to raise our children? It seems to me that it is up to the parents to decide at what age their children are permitted to hunt. " The government has removed many child-raising choices from parents.

andrear@herald-mail.com SMITHSBURG - Preston "Toby" Law digs history. He has scoured Civil War battlegrounds and encampments in search of artifacts for more than 30 years in a quest to preserve pieces of American history before they are buried under shopping malls and subdivisions. "I can name battlefield after battlefield that's gone forever," said Law, 68, of near Smithsburg. Law hopes his new book, "Gone Diggin': Memoirs of a Civil War Relic Hunter," will entertain and educate readers with its history-packed stories of his excursions to places from Bull Run to The Wilderness.

Why is this gentle art slipping away from us? Is it lack of time, or lack of open-mindedness, or possibly just lack of skill? Conversation is a gentle art, like nature hiking or sailing or flower arrangement. It's not at all like the sweet science of boxing. It is a temporary partnership for exchange of ideas and inquiry. There's no element of debate or competition in a true conversation. What it takes is at least two people willing to spend time and attention focused on each other's remarks.
