About Me

My photo
Forest, Virginia, United States
A long time ago, my sophomore English teacher, Father William Campbell, saw something in my writing and predicted that I would someday become a newspaper columnist. He suggested the perfect title for my column--"Leaves of the Palm." Now that I have a little extra time on my hands I've decided to put Father Campbell's prediction to the test. I'm going to start using this blog site not just to reprint opinion pieces I've published elsewhere but to try to get more of my ideas and opinions out there. Feedback is welcome. To find out more about me, please check out my Web site: www.EdwardFPalm.com (Click on any of the photos below for an enlarged view.)

My Column for March 4, 2018

What can I say? I'm just incorrigible. --S/f, EFP
P.S. A good friend warns that, if I follow through on my Mother's Day gift idea, I should expect a vertical butt stroke to a sensitive area.

My Column for February 11, 2018

I've said it before, but it bears repeating: I didn't study literature for ten years only to have to think for myself. Thank you very much! --S/f, EFP
