Opinion: Hear us now, believe us later

0

Random thoughts while anticipating the full-fledged kickoff of the holiday season, even though it has been under celebration in certain mass retailers since, oh, about Aug. 17:

•We were taken to task last week for our column of two weeks ago about Hillary Rodham Clinton. Once more, we have been accused of attacking only the Democratic Party. We’re told we never take umbrage with what the Republicans do – and nothing could be more distant from the truth. You’re staring at the words of two fiercely independent voters and we will repeat once more, with the same conviction, this: Our nation deserves to have a viable third party. The two existing parties have shown often enough they can screw up a two-car funeral. Questions?

•One of us was flying back to Indianapolis from points west late last week, when the plane was forced to return to the gate because a passenger began experiencing a nosebleed. No one wanted to say it, but many were thinking, Is this Ebola? An ambulance met the plane at the gate, the passenger was checked, treated, cleared and permitted to re-board the aircraft. While the delay was somewhat troubling, coming at the end of a long day, the abundance of caution deployed by the carrier and the medical personnel not only was prudent, but it also was fairly comforting. Such are the times in which we’re living these days.

• And about the coming holidays, we’re fairly energized around here for the delivery of our Gifts 2014 special section, which will be included in the Nov. 25 edition of Current. This year, we’re focusing on “Hoosier Holidays,” which means gift items will have had to be designed, manufactured or otherwise created in Indiana. Overall, we hope you’ll find the information a meaningful and useful way to navigate the season. And, no, we’re not going to tell you to avoid holiday debt by cutting up your credit cards or sticking to a budget; we’ll leave that to other media sources.
