Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
I remembered the name, but hadn't heard it in ages. I had to look him uphttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Royko
Ahhh, eff you!
As Lion said in "The Wizard of Oz": "Ain't it da Troot!"
Here is a 67 year old grandmother, who has been a dyed-in-the-wool liberal and proud, all of my life, as far back as I can remember. I wouldn't have it any other way.
I've got four years on you and I've always been proud of my liberal and democratic roots.Beaglemom
Royko was a Chicago treasure, as was his mentor and predecessor, Studs Terkel - who proudly proclaimed his progressive roots - into his mid nineties. They are two of the reasons I don't equate aging as inevitably ascribing to reactionary conservatism.
Mike was a Chicago treasure. When you hired on at the Chicago Daily News, and later the Sun-Times, he took you for a beer at The Goat and told you that he paid your salary, meaning the paper sold because of his column. He gave me the lecture twice. The second time I drank tea.
Does anyone know when Royko wrote this?
Always loved his columns, even though I was a bit too young to fully appreciate them. It didn't hurt that he was a nice Ukrainian boy! (we had distant cousins also named Royko, although they were, sadly, not related to him)
Thanks Gryphen, for sharing that sentiment by Mr. Royko.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
