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.)

Palm on Veterans Day

The Seattle Times was good enough to give me some space today:  "Appreciate the True Value of Military Service."
     I couldn't resist ringing some changes on Sarah Palin's recent boast about raising a "combat soldier."  I wonder if in her economy that is better than raising a pediatrician, a policeman, or a priest."  --EFP
