My Vote For Persons Of Year



Time magazine has announced Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke “Person of The Year.” As per script, any person will bring controversy, oe-third each – For, Against and Who Cares.

This minuscule corner suggests the award go to those males and females [should that be females and males?] who have accomplished 30 years of Marital Management.

Two people who have two vocations – one, the home; the other, the workplace. And little time for avocations.

In this Marital Management Co., there’s tolerance, acceptance, ups, downs, tears, laughter, joys, sorrows, conflicts, and resolutions. Children or none – soccer moms or little League coaches – all cheerleaders for each other.

Kudos and Cheers to these persons, halfway toward the coveted 60th, and all those couples struggling to reach the 30th.

Let There Be Peace in your world, and Let It Begin With Me – each person of each generation in this Marital Institution!

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
