Peter Gay: The sheep among us

“We know they killed (Washington Post reporter Jamal) Khashoggi and have a horrible record on human rights. They execute people over there for being gay.”. Unless you’ve been living off the grid for the last month, you probably know those two sentences are part of a quote made by professional golfer Phil Mickelson about the Saudi royal family.

It has not only become a sense of pride, it’s also a preventive measure in hopes the sidewalk plow will bypass our property and not tear up our front lawn. The effort paid off during the snowstorm that hit the area a week ago Saturday. The driver of the sidewalk plow, actually a riding snow blower, veered off the sidewalk and into the street as he moved onto my next-door neighbor’s house.
