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.)

Delaware Dissing Bin Laden

In view of Sunday night's big news, I can’t resist sharing this Palm-Print, which I took on January 1, 2002, at the annual Hummers’ Day Parade in Middletown, Delaware.  The Hummers’ Parade is a parody of the Mummers’ Parade, held annually on New Year’s Day in Philadelphia.  The folks in Middletown can’t resist having a little fun at the expense of Philadelphia, under whose hegemony the northern half of Delaware lives.
