Parting Comments

• Deep Thought of the Week: We’ve seen better days, but also we’ve seen worse. We don’t have everything that we want, but we do have all we need. We wake up with some aches and pains, but we woke up. Our lives may not be perfect, but we are blessed.

• Notable Quote: "Some people change jobs, mates, and friends, but never think of changing themselves."

• That’s Puny Department: Did you hear about the scandal involving seven wheelchair athletes that have been banned from the Para-Olympics after they tested positive for WD40?

• Did You Know Section: This week we’ll explore where the term “Kangaroo Court” came from. Originally, irregular courts were resorted to in frontier communities, usually for the trial and condemnation of persons committing offenses against the community. The source of the name is quizzical, for it is American rather than Australian, as it would be easy to assume. The date of origin appears to coincide closely with the gold rush to California in 1849. “Kangaroo Court” was in humorous allusion to the early purpose of such courts to try “jumpers” who resorted to desperate measures and seized the mining claims of others. As the long arm of the government had not yet reached the “diggings”, these improvised courts were resorted to attain justice against the claim jumpers.
