Check The Facts-Don’t Fight Your Friends — Dave’s Diary

Did you ever have someone miss what you were saying, get upset about it and then spread the misrepresentation all over as if it were truth?  How did you deal with that?

A very special community supporter did that to me

When Do We Give Ourselves A Break, Yakima? — Dave’s Diary

Sometimes I hate social media. When I think of all the good it could do and then I see all the bad being done, it can be demoralizing. Cyber bullying has even cost lives. The First Amendment guarantees the right, but conscience and character need to guide the content.

Not Soon Enough: Gregory to Leave NBC — Dave’s Diary

The bar was set high when Tim Russert passed away in 2008 after 16 years as host of NBC’s "Meet the Press." I was disappointed to see reporter David Gregory ascend to one of television’s most prime positions as Russert’s successor. Now, at last, after six years on MTP and 20 years total at NBC, Gregory is leaving the show and the network -- to which I say good riddance.

Kung Fu Master Say it’s OK To Be Typical Man — Dave’s Diary

I'm pretty sure I once heard Kwai Chang Cain, that Kung Fu guy from TV, say something once about true freedom being achieved when you no longer worry about keeping up with the Jones's.  We are always comparing, always trying to see where we fit on the scale of normal.

Yakima is Sooo Polite When We Take A Dig! — Dave’s Diary

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Yale Lab Grows Full Head of Hair — Dave’s Next!

The curse of the mother’s father may have met its match!

My dad’s dad had a great full head of white hair. Dad had a full head of dark hair up to the day he passed at 84. Me, not so much and me, none too happy about it. I joke about being in radio because hair loss drove me from my television career! They say the mother’s father will determine the son’s hair follicular future!  Thanks for nuthin’ Grandpa Bud!

Dave Defends the Council Responding To The Political Machine — Dave’s Diary

I’m getting better at not taking the bait, not feeling the need to defend or challenge every printed swipe at city council.  I’ve been on council for 4 ½ years and we aren’t perfect and we’ve made mistakes for which we deserve our lumps but I still feel defensive when attacks, subtle or overt, aren’t justified.
