Letter: What Christians believe
I' m giddy with excitement! The circus has come to town! The political circus, of course. I don't care what anyone wants to believe. If you want to believe carrying five little green frogs will get your child into an Ivy League school, fine, but don't ask me to accept the belief....

Letter: The end of America is coming
In writing this letter I fear of being branded a street corner preaching Christian with folded hands and saintly smile. I am not! I will make judgments because we are a nation in spiritual decline and are departing from God at rocket speed. When very young my faith was the size...

Letter: The failure of parenting
Why are people so aghast at the results of bullying? We, the adults, are the ones at fault. Do we teach respect and consideration of others? Do we give our children a strong foundation in the Christian faith that will give them something to hang on to when the dark days come? And...

Commentary- Carter is haunting for Obama
Almost like an apparition, Jimmy Carter stalks Barack Obama. The former president has published yet another book, his 25th, which has been greeted with some scorn and plenty of ridicule. Garry Wills, in the reliably liberal New York Review of Books, writes that "Carter is a better...

Letter: U.S. needs to toughen up
Arizona has its back against the wall, and like anyone, when that happens, you fight back or die. Arizona had no other option; they had to fight back because Washington ignores the problems of immigration. They are like old men with loose dentures, avoiding anything that's tough,...

Letter: Celebrate the holy season
It was a miserable night. The temperature had dropped, the wind was blowing and snow was dusting all the little nooks and crannies of the land. The young couple had just entered the town and were unsuccessfully seeking a place of shelter. If it hadn't been demanded that they make...

Letter: Bernie Madoff's day has come
When thinking about the state of our economy, gangsters of the last Depression came to mind. Al Capone controlled Chicago and Giuseppe Masseria was the baddie in New York. Add Lucky Luciano, Vito Genovese and, from the Midwest, John Dillinger. In fact Pretty Boy Floyd was holed up...

Letter: The Madoff school of business
Did Bernie Madoff, before he went to the big house, teach at "Screw You University"? It seems we have a lot of graduates from that school of business. I recently wanted to buy a new dryer but thought I should check on delivery costs before I did anything. Well, surprise, surprise!!...

Letter: The new religion of PC
Because being a Christian nowadays means you cannot stand up and defend your faith, you cannot post or voice your beliefs, and upon pain of slander by the politically correct, you must certainly never say that there is a definitive line in the sand drawn between right and wrong. PC...
