Bob Dunning: The junior high kids just might be insulted

THE SHOW MUST GO ON … our beloved Davis City Council used Zoom the other night to “video conference” with our quarantined citizens only to find out that some bad actors thought this would be a great time to have some off-color fun … the council, however, had no idea who was out there zooming […]

Bob Dunning: Getting Aggie families through the crisis

365体育投注My family’s connection with UC Davis goes back to the fall of 1951 when my dad, at age 40, decided to resume his educational aspirations, which had been interrupted by his participation in World War II. Why he decided to move his family nearly 600 miles south from the bustling city of Portland to the […]

Bob Dunning: Skip the penance, pile on the jackfruit

365体育投注Several years ago at the beginning of Lent I wrote about an article I had seen in The Oregonian — my second-favorite newspaper — concerning this treasured Christian observance. Lent was the time when Jesus, to use the language of today, was sheltering in place in the desert, observing an extreme form of social distancing. […]

Bob Dunning: Hurry up and stop

Talk about mixed messages. The governor of New York says the coronavirus is spreading much more quickly than the “experts” originally projected, while the president of the United States says it’s about time to get back to normal to save the economy. Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the life of his 88-year-old mother is more important […]

Bob Dunning: The track and field of my dreams

365体育投注Count me among those who are disappointed that the Olympics have been postponed, but relieved they have not been scrapped altogether. I have always been fascinated by the incredible talent displayed by Olympic athletes in a wide variety of sporting endeavors, even if I was never any good at any Olympic-type event. Before the local […]

Bob Dunning: Trump’s call for unity negated by divisive words

HOPE OR FEAR? … when the president opened Sunday’s “health update” press conference with his Coronavirus Task Force and began to talk eloquently about all Americans pulling together to defeat this invisible enemy, I was all in … he may not be my favorite politician, but when the president — any president — appeals to […]

Bob Dunning: The lines tell the story

365体育投注A little more than a year ago, as the November 2018 mid-term election was staring us in the face, I went way out on a limb and said something like “The more people who vote, the better.” That statement came sharply into focus for me this week as several states postponed their presidential primaries because […]

Bob Dunning: Reactions range from the ridiculous to the sublime

365体育投注May you live in interesting times. Indeed. I don’t yet know the legal difference between the terms “shelter in place” and “total lockdown,” but I suspect we’re all about to find out. Directives that one day seemed set in stone are, after “careful consideration,”quickly discarded and replaced within 24 hours with new edicts telling us […]

Bob Dunning: The sports world folded so quickly

365体育投注We are now about a week into the total absence of sports in our community and in our country. Surprisingly, I’ve heard very little dissent from those most directly affected, which is an encouraging sign that almost everyone is taking the coronavirus threat seriously. It was only eight or nine days ago that many of […]

Bob Dunning: Another time, another outbreak

As the coronavirus spreads along with fear of the coronavirus, I can’t help but remember when our own beloved UC Davis campus was considered Ground Zero for the outbreak of the so-called Asian flu in this country. That, of course, is a name that wouldn’t — and shouldn’t — be used today, but you can’t […]

Bob Dunning: Who needs Measure G? Let’s just donate the money

365体育投注MEASURE G SOLUTION … I was honestly stunned that Measure G, the school parcel tax measure designed to help pay our public schoolteachers what they’re worth, has so far not reached the two-thirds approval necessary for passage … There is, however, a fighting chance that it will pass after all, given that the percentage of […]

Bob Dunning: Better not to wait too long on virus

365体育投注I truly like and respect our current School Board members and the work they do in this community. So I offer the following as encouragement, not hostility. I realize these are strange and difficult times, unlike what most of us have ever faced. And there are some serious differences of opinion in our community over […]
