Crumb – Pandemic Economics: How It Works

Crumb – Pandemic Economics:  How It Works

You might think the economics of a pandemic are esoteric and complex. Not so and I am here to offer to offer a brief explanation. *** I had to do some banking on Monday. An easy task except that my bank couldn’t make enough money from the humble folk where I live and closed the [...]

Crumb – Grown Up Lesson

Crumb – Grown Up Lesson

We had a lesson at home this week that broke my heart. It’s silly, yes, but when the Megalotto hits about a hundred mil, I’ll buy a ticket for the family. At first, my wife and I thought this was a fun idea: go and buy the card as a family and check the numbers [...]

Crumb – In With The Old, Let New Be New

Crumb – In With The Old, Let New Be New

A woman made a comment in Sunday school yesterday, and I completely agree. Call me an essentialist, a traditionalist, a conservative, or a liberal: so be it. That's your label, not mine. Someone was talking about a new Bible that rewrites passages to include many of our modern ideas. The old is out and the [...]

Crumb – A Lifetime’s Look?

Crumb – A Lifetime’s Look?

I read somewhere that on any single day or in any single scene, a writer - an observant writer - can find a lifetime of ideas to write about. I scratched my head over this but remind myself of it as I careen through my day. I have to say: by forcing myself to notice, [...]

Crumb – It’s All About You

Crumb – It’s All About You

It isn’t really, but, in this case, it is. I was listening to something today about developing a morning routine. One that is guaranteed to make you famous and beautiful and smart and probably live forever. Then I thought, screw this crap. The whole idea started to bother me. It’s simply someone else telling me [...]

Crumb – Genesis and Real People

Crumb – Genesis and Real People

I think people have the wrong idea about who G works with. At least the Hebrew G. We imagine the people G uses are like our pastor or priest, or maybe like the sweater-wearing goof from The Simpsons. I can't say that G doesn't work with these folks, or that He won't. I not much [...]

Crumb – Classrooms

Crumb – Classrooms

I'm not sure at all what this means. Chime in with your interpretation. My wife works with kids who are learning disabled. For old guys like me, this is the Special Ed class. She was telling me today about a girl who goes to a regular classroom for science. Thinking of the Sharks and the [...]

Crumb: No Hope for Humankind

Crumb: No Hope for Humankind

Some readers will know exactly what I’m talking about. I’ve been helping my wife this week while she recovers from surgery. Partly this means carting the girls to and from school each day. This all happens in what we call the car line. They’re in the sixth grade and all six graders come and go [...]

Crumb – Who Are You Voting For?

Crumb – Who Are You Voting For?

Here's one I had a good laugh over. As an explanation, I bought a pack of TableTopic cards for the family as a Christmas present. I thought it would be a way to get us talking about things other than who pushed who in the lunch line. I've also noticed that my wife and I [...]
