Often-times it isnâ€™t what a person says but how he says it that makes a difference. As fallible humans, we often see the messenger more than we hear the message. There may not be much we can do about this vital flaw but we all can work on lessening the effects and outcomes it produces.
The political landscape is full of examples.
There are those who will never believe or support President Obama simply because they do not like him. The same is true for Mitt Romney.
Something happened recently to make me think of the day we lost a cat named Murphy.
The cat had been strictly an indoor animal for some time, though he was a rescue and previously had roamed freely â€” near the Courier office.
That was, in fact, what caused him to come to our house in the first place. He had had an unfortunate encounter with a vehicle and his injuries and subsequent surgery meant he could no longer be free and easy.
