The Superior Express -

Somewhere in the Bible there is a line that says: “Nothing new under the sun.”

I believe that whole heartedly. However, there are many things that sure seem “new” to me. But that is my own shortfall, not something wrong with the statement.

The reason I bring this up is because Saturday was the second funeral in the family via “Zoom.”

A year or two ago the word “Zoom” had an entire different meaning than it has today, in our computer age. “Zoom” is a computer program that allows communication (both audio and video) with a group almost anywhere you want.

Seems like it was designed for this “COVID-19” world we live in. Our family has used it a number of times now and last Saturday, our extended family used it . . . again, for a funeral memorial service.

Last year, my brother Marion, passed on in Florida. Two weeks ago, my brother-in-law, Dick Mitton, passed on in California.

Many, but not all, of the immediate family live in Nebraska.

With ‘COVID’, travel is ruled out, so a funeral service via “Zoom” may have been the best solution. Consider:

• Dick’s family and friends were in California.

• Rev. Father James Golka (a nephew) is in Grand Island.

• The music for the Memorial Mass came from a nephew and niece in Maryland.

• Family and relatives are scattered from the New England states, New York, Texas, Illinois, Minnesota, Colorado, many places in Nebraska and other places I’m not sure of right now.

It works . . . I’m not sure if it’s ‘new’ or not, but I credit the families of Marion and Veronica and Dick and Lou Ann with that old fashioned mid-west willingness to ‘make it work.’


“Cancel Culture”

I’ve discussed this before, but feel obligated to do so again, in part because those wanting to cancel our culture never seem to stop.

For quite some time now, many “Liberals” (many of whom seem to prefer to be called Democrats) have been wanting to abolish some holidays (Christmas, Easter, Columbus Day). They seem to contend that many of the holidays are related to the Christian religions and those people of other faiths, or without any faith, do not have holidays of their preference.

Cancelling what we have now, or changing the names has been their suggestions.

A friend recently sent the following joke. Seems this item has been around for about 20 years, but this is the first time I’ve seen it. I cannot confirm is the story is true, or not, but it does give us a humorous outlook on this whole ‘Cancel Culture’ agenda.

In Florida, an atheist created a case against, Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days. The case was brought before a judge.

After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, “Case Dismissed!”

The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling saying, “Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays.”

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, “But you do. Your client, counselor, is woefully ignorant.”

The lawyer said, “Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists.”

The judge said, “The calendar says April 1st is Fool’s Day. Psalm 14:1 states, ‘The fool says in his heart, there is no God.’Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that, if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool.

Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned.”


I realize that meanings of words change over the years, but I am having trouble understanding the latest that comes out of the mouths of Liberals. Just a couple of years ago, pictures of children at the U. S. – Mexican border labeled the facilities they were in as’ cages.’

All of a sudden, those same ‘cages’ children are being held in today are ‘facilities’ not cages.
