  • An inflatable hospital, just in case

    What has 16 rooms, suction, oxygen and four inflated walls?
    Anderson County’s version of a hospital, that’s what.

    It even has heart monitors.
    Owned by the state but stored here just in case, the facility was on display last Thursday outside of the EMS building on US 127 Bypass.

  • Looking for life in weekly obituaries

    I love reading obituaries.
    Not because I am happy to learn that someone died.
    But because it’s an entire epic novel squeezed into miniature, tracing life from birth to death.
    It’s Homer’s Odyssey compressed down to the time it takes to read a haiku.
    Is this morbid fascination? I don’t think so.
    For one instant, in a few, compact lines, we learn that someone’s ordinary life wasn’t so ordinary.
    Read between the lines.
    We have more in common with the dead than you’d think.
