5. Last Word: Bird Is The Word, Governors Quartet and Charlie Morris's Secret -

Former Vice President Joe Biden plays the Orpheum Friday evening. Maybe that isn't the right way to put it -- unless there's a drum solo no one is talking about. Free Bird?

I'll take it as further evidence of the new American politics that is evolving and is far from settled at this point. Politicians do paid speaking gigs all the time. And at times it is controversial. But the gigs are usually some kind of speaking fee to make remarks at a corporate function -- not selling individual tickets on line. This is ostensibly to promote Biden's new book and book deals and politicians go way back. But in a lot of cases, those are free events in a book store. When Biden was last here, it was as vice president at the Norfolk Southern intermodal rail yard in Rossville.

In truth, however, thoughtful planning can enable any legally competent adult to make their financial and health care decisions before they become incapacitated or pass away, sparing themselves or their loved ones the expense and complication of trying to resolve those questions later.
