Iconoclast view: 60 times around the block

By Fred Steiner

Recently it occurred to me that I would soon (on Nov. 9) enter my sixth decade of existence. Wanting to make the event memorable I asked my wife for suggestions on how to celebrate it.

She immediately went on Facebook and asked a host of people who I hardly recognize what I ought to do 60 times on Nov. 9. Several yawned. A couple responded.

It was my nephew, Nate of Homewood, Illinois, whose response caught my attention. He suggested to "drive the trailer to the dump 60 times."

Allow me to explain.
