In today’s world, we are getting used to instant gratification. Many smart phones, tablets, computers and other hi-tech items change—improve—so fast these days, it sometimes seems like a minor miracle. In 1969, there was sufficient technology in this country to send men to the moon. The computing power of those days was so limited, though, that nobody—and I mean nobody—would want a cell phone, computer or any other devices based solely on that era’s technology.

Of all the people who have ever played high school football in our area, I think what T. J. Moe did his senior year stacks up against anybody—anybody. Read closely: At Fort Zumwalt West in 2008, he scored 61 touchdowns. That is not a career, that is a single season. Only Roger Maris has had a more impressive 61. Moe threw for 2,557 yards, and he ran for 2,029 yards. Throw in a perfect grade point average and a pretty good basketball career, and you have a pretty nice high-school experience.

Who can you trust? Where can you get accurate information? There are a lot of misinformation and falsehoods online.
