As any child can tell you, the Mesozoic Era ends with the extinction of the dinosaurs. Most geologists think the cause of that extinction was the impact of an enormous meteorite that hit the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. As the theory goes, the impact was so large it led to global changes in the composition of the atmosphere. Smoke and dust raised by the collision blocked the sun’s light for a time, making temperatures drop and plants die off. Many species of both plants and animals didn’t live through the crisis, as parts of the food web simply fell apart.

Editor, I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about people who you, as readers, rarely see or even come in contact with. But they are every bit as important to the production of this newspaper as anyone. Those are your newspaper delivery people. Often, they are a blur in the night. Delivering your paper while you sleep. Delivering in all kinds of weather and the occasional deer crossing the road.

I wish to express my outrage at the Arlene’s Flowers political cartoon illustrated by Milt Priggee of Oak Harbor in last week’s Whidbey Examiner. Mr. Priggee depicted Jesus as an evil horned thug. I have noticed that, more and more, it is seemingly becoming acceptable to mock Jesus Christ. Sadly, it is somewhat expected to come from the main-stream media these days. Not only is it despicable and insulting when this is done in the larger publications, but when it happens right here in our small-town community and approved by our local newspaper editors and their publisher, well what gives?
