1928 - Alderson High School - 1968




Alex McLaughlin - September 28, 2012

September 25 I was pulled over recently at the tollbooth around mile 86 on the West Virginia turnpike. The state police car followed me up to the toll booth and I stopped in one of the lanes. The cop asked, "Why are we stopped in one of the driving lanes." I responded, "I know it is stupid but where in the hell else was I going to pull over". I tried to look like I didn't have much sense well actually I acted naturally. I was several miles over the speed limit but all I got was a warning. This was probably the first time I have been pulled over in 7 years and I pretty regularly test the speed limit. Slow down and don't pick up that iPhone. My prospective defense for the next time I am pulled over is " Officer the dog ate the speedometer"

September 16 The older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.

September 19 I went to Rite Aid and was taken care of by one of the nicest sweetest persons. Went to the Post office and was taken care of by the nicest smiling man. Came home and the trash truck backed down so I would not have to wait. The guys in the trash truck waved and beeped as they drove by my house. On top of all of this it is a beautiful. West Virginia fall day. Need a computer to keep up with all of the blessings on this West Virginia day.

September 19 The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money”

Alexis de Tocqueville quote

September 14 Those Muslims who say that Islam is a religion of tolerance and peace are smoking that grass that they are cutting.

September 14 Well I swan.

September 13 WVU fans need someone to dislike. Since we no longer play certain teams that have fallen on bad times like Penn State, Pitt, and Virginia Tech, I would nominate Notre Dame. This school is simply the most overhyped average performing school in all of sports history.

September 7 I love my doctor and all the people that work there. But I counted at least 10 "please do not" do this or that signs in the outer office. Please do not put up any more "please do not " signs.

September 4 Always say nice things about people. John Kerry married well and dresses up nice.

August 31 I am heading out to the pre 5K-shuffle race for dinner with Pretty Boy Hughes and Allan Galloway. Pretty Boy and me used to do 5K races now we merely shuffle but we are very blessed that we can do that. To the Aldersonian readers this is also known as the race between The Woman and The Democrat. I would caution anyone not to put too much credence into Pretty Boy's reports and to pray for Allan having to listen to us argue about who cheats the most each year.

August 28 Just 4 days to the big Labor Day 5k in Charleston. Today I get an anonymous message on my phone that was addressed to Fats (i.e. me) from Pretty Boy Hughes. In this message the writer suggested that I should and could eat a lot because my opponent was feeble. I will not let my guard down anonymous Pretty Boy.

August 21 If national democrats and republicans don't quit telling lies about each other I am going to start telling the truth about them.

August 17 The best place to hide a body is on page 2 of a Google search.
