Epitaph: Six-Word Philosophies

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but these submissions for our latest "Six-Word Philosophies" contest prove that you can tell a story (or a quip) in six words. My own submission was "Tightrope walker in need of balance." A postscript: "I'm schizophrenic, and so am I." Pretty much says it all, right? Some entrants did need a couple or even three sentences to adequately express themselves, so I indulged, and we have well more than 10 finalists. But hey, the word count is still short!

September Photo Contest winners revealed!

I'm really excited to announce the winners of the "IBMadison.com Readers Photo Competition" for this month's competition. However, before I reveal those, I'm taking a self-indulgent moment to share one of my best pics taken this week (since I can't enter our contest). This one was captured at Olbrich gardens, outside. This photo proves it isn't the camera that makes the best shot — I use a relatively inexpensive ($150 model) camera. No, it's the patience.

Duck, Duck, Goose: Radio guests raise more questions than they answer.

There are very few comments that you hear during your lifetime, short of news of a full-out crisis, that immediately change a behavior and/or attitude. However, I heard a story once, during one of our radio interviews, that immediately challenged and changed my perception of "meat." A guest on "In Business with Jody and Joan" shared a story with Joan Gillman and me that painted a vivid picture in my mind — one that I haven't been able to step back from since, because it haunts me to this day.

"Only guard yourself and guard your soul carefully, lest you forget the things your eyes saw, and lest these things depart your heart all the days of your life. And you shall make them known to your children and to your children's children." - U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Hall of Remembrance Rachel Lea Karpus was born about 1876 to a Jewish family in the northeast Polish city of Vilna. At age 16, Rachel married Reuven Galperin, a typesetter for a Jewish newspaper, and the Galperin couple subsequently had 16 children — though many died young.
