Some people have jobs. Others have careers. And then there are those who have callings. Having dinner with Joanna James, Mareya Ibrahim and Deborah Di Bernardo makes that point. Great food tastes even better when the secret ingredient is engaging conversation seasoned perfectly with inspiration.
We asked readers if they wanted to forgive the creator of the “Non Sequitur” cartoon for
Back in February, the “Non Sequitur” comic that ran in our newspaper had a hidden message in it. It was a naughty message. Really naughty. Involving President Trump. So, like many newspapers across the nation, The Spokesman-Review canceled the comic. Many readers have written notes asking that we bring it back. Should we? Well, we’re putting it to a vote.
