I always read the Rev. Billy Graham's column when it appears in the paper. He is about as fundamentalist as they come, but I find I often agree with him, if I translate his statements from his simple one-dimensional language to something deeper and more universal.
Our culture is making us sick.
If you want to reduce government spending, you have to know where the money goes and why. I'm not an economist, but I am a nuke watcher. I'm on the board of Nuclear Watch South and linked with other nuclear watch groups around the country.
"I'm not afraid of dying. I just don't want to be around when it happens." - Woody Allen
I'm rereading Aldus Huxley's "Brave New World." It was published the year I was born and is considered to be one of the best novels of the 20th century.
If our nation is really in trouble, if it's really "going to hell in a hand-basket" as some say, it isn't the fault of any other nation, or of a global organization like al-Qaida.

One week before the election! Next Tuesday, you go to the polls and cast your vote, but ... alas, your guy loses. What are you going to do, leave the country?
My father was an electrical engineer. He considered himself a scientist. Born Nov. 4, 1899, he was a lifelong employee of Bell Laboratories. On more than one occasion he told me, "If I live to be a hundred, my life will span three centuries."
Quick! In five words tell me. What's the difference between Democrats and Republicans?
Both the Republican and Democratic conventions are behind us now. The two parties have chosen their gladiators, and for the next seven weeks they will battle it out. They'll do whatever they can to win the Presidency. I'm afriaid things are going to get ugly
