The Uncanny Union of Kermit and Miss Maggie

Abortion3by Glenn Fairman10/11/18
“The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” — Margaret Sanger  •  As I write, inside Room 304 of a Philadelphia courthouse there sits a 72 year old bespectacled grandfatherly type who by all accounts sits smiling with an air of cool reserve as an avalanche of testimony from former patients and employees brings his unspeakable deeds to the sterile light of day.

Advise and Consent

by Deana Chadwell9/21/18
Any thinking person today is hearing alarms going off in all directions over the Kavanaugh accusations. It’s obvious that this is all dirty politics; we can see that in the timing, in the fussiness about Ford testifying, in the nasty rhetoric that swirls in poisonous clouds throughout Washington.

by Jon N. Hall9/17/18
John McCain’s funeral at the National Cathedral brings to mind an admonition some will have heard in the cinematic recreation of a memorial at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London for T.E. Lawrence: “Well, nil nisi bonum” – “Of the dead, [say] nothing but good.” More » • (79 views)
