My Two Cents: Celebrities and Politics

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – To say it’s been a very contentious couple of years would be a major understatement.  Suffice it to say that it seems our great country is divided as bad as I can remember.  Being stationed overseas during the sixties, I was far removed from the Civil Rights movement, and the riots and demonstrations that were so prevalent. 

Now with the internet and social media, it seems that not only are we all just a “click” away from instant news, fake and otherwise, but we are also able to connect with our favorite rock stars, actors, entertainers and politicians.Hollywood Sign «Read the rest of this article»

My Two Cents: How a Motorcycle pulled me out of Depression

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I spent my career in the spotlight.  Forty years in broadcasting.  The last eighteen years as the owner of a radio station, and the host of a morning talk show.  I was right in the middle of everything.

Over the course of my career, I “hob-knobbed” with the rich and famous.  Rock stars, politicians, entertainers and more.  There was nobody I couldn’t hang out with. There wasn’t a politician or public official I couldn’t interview.

Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: Retro Braves

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN As far back as I can remember, the Braves were fine. Nearly always good, occasionally great. Sure, there was that 2008 team that was underachieving and unfortunate and doesn’t bear any measure of discussion. But from the time I started paying attention to baseball, I could nearly always count on Atlanta being involved in meaningful games in August and September.

So 2015 will be slightly different.

My Two Cents: Case Closed

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN –  I was the victim of a random assault two weeks ago.

While walking to dinner in Nashville, I was confronted “face to face” by a homeless man.  He was EXTREMELY drunk.

So,instead of just walking past him, or sidestepping him, I decided to let my ego overload my good judgement.  I told him to “step off” and he punched me in the face.
