Roast all of the unkempt houses around town. The issue came to light earlier this month at Norwalk's city council meeting. A house at 16 N. Pleasant St. has been sitting empty for two years since its owner, Margaret Ryan, died. Council has started the process to get the house razed, but that will take time. This is an unfortunate situation with Ryan's death and no family to take the house. But there are other houses around town that are a mess and the owners just don't seem to care. That hurts the property value for everybody on the street and in some cases the decaying houses could pose safety issues. Toast everybody involved with Friday's fundraiser for Joseph Conway, the local youngster who is battling cancer. The area behind the Reflector was buzzing Friday morning as Jerry Gravenhorst and his crew began grilling more than 1,000 chicken halves. A number of St. Paul football players a couple of them related to Conway volunteered their time to help with the grilling. And it looked like a well-oiled machine at lunchtime as workers kept the dinners coming. It's good to see the community come together in support of somebody in need.

The other day I tuned in to one of my favorite shows, The Daily Show (some of the best reporting on TV, which isn't saying much), and I was shocked by what I saw. Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill.) candidate for the Democratic nomination for president, was interviewed. After the commercial break, not once, but three times, he said it. He dropped the f-word: folks.
