OPINION: I didn't see the wave coming
Tuesday’s returns will be interpreted, reinterpreted and overinterpreted. Might Democrats make too much of this midterm? Yes, but that would be better than making too little of it.
I guess the Christmas creep forward into early November was inevitable. But do we really need to egg this on with pre-Halloween Christmas lights and decoration sales the day after Labor Day?
A return trip to South Dakota, which is a favorite state, brought about the exhilarating experiences of shooting a cock pheasant, spending time with a seasoned hunting partner, and reverently toasting the memory of a fallen friend.
OPINION: Biggest voter fraud is assertion there is no voter fraud
Sacrificing these young people’s futures, in hopes of gaining some additional black votes today, is as cynical and fraudulent as it gets.
A very big segment of the country’s interested watchers will be waiting in anticipation to see how far the president will go to make up for all of his stalling on the issue of who gets to stay and who should be deported.
the earlier we help our children achieve success, the earlier they build their confidence and develop a belief in themselves.
Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything, but having a passion for your vocation makes that longevity possible. So it makes sense that Chuck Scott calls his work with Young Life a calling more than a profession.
It has always mystified me why so many African-American voters remain loyal to the Democratic Party when that party — and especially the first black president — has done nothing to improve the circumstances of the poor among them.
I have three longstanding rules. I don’t do book reviews. I don’t do any Christmas shopping until the last minute. I don’t sing Christmas carols until the Great Tree bursts into light on Thanksgiving night.
Please, voters, make sure there are winners on Tuesday. Otherwise it’s two more months of this nonsense.
OPINION: This year's campaign has been dull and disheartening
No matter how well Republicans do at the polls Tuesday — and my hunch is they won’t do as well as they hope — the GOP won’t be able to claim any kind of mandate. That’s because they have refused to articulate any vision for governing.
The holiday season is coming up, and there are some families out there who are not doing so well. A number of them would go hungry were it not for the food banks.
OPINION: There is a point of no return in all relationships
The great boxing champion Joe Louis once said about one of his opponents, who was known for his speed: “He can run but he can’t hide.” In the Congressional elections this year, many Democrats are running away from Barack Obama, but they can’t hide their record of voting for Obama’s agenda more than 90 percent of the time.
It’s no overstatement to say that we lost a trailblazer when Elizabeth Pena died earlier this month. To note that she was wonderful, but not exceptionally famous, isn’t a knock on her abilities. It is a testament to her undervalued contributions to the performing arts.
What we are is a nation of sensible sorts, most of whom come home each day to rest where the pendulum do. May the victors, both Democrat and Republican, remember this fact and keep it close to their conscience.
