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.)

Charm School Graduates

This is a proud day for Andrea and me.  See below.  We are now certifiably well-mannered—in “basic manners” at least.  Andrea will surely insist on framing and hanging this certificate next to my Ph.D. diploma. 
Seriously, it was our dog “Phineas” who passed the course.  I can’t believe that the Humane Society didn’t put our dog’s name on the diploma.  S/f, Ed
