Tax cut for California pot industry: Too little, too late?
5/19/2022 3:11:32 PM

LOS ANGELES—California's governor on Friday proposed a temporary tax cut for the state's struggling legal marijuana industry, but businesses said it falls far short of what's needed to revive a foundering pot economy. Broad legal sales began in California in 2018, but the industry has been burdened by hefty taxes that can approach 50% in some areas, costly regulation and competition from a flourishing illegal marketplace, which industry analysts estimate is at least twice the size of the legal one. Meanwhile, a glut of cannabis from corporate-scale farms has sent...

It’s all in the script
5/19/2022 3:09:03 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Everybody is concerned about details in various aspects of life. I like overseeing the details of my life to make sure I'm going in the right direction. If you walked into my wife's craft room, you would see how important details are to her. If you would then walk into my office, you would see how flimsy I regard the depths of details. I don't have to have everything in proper order to be happy with what I'm doing. My idea is, if I can't find what I need, I probably don't need it. My wife and I enjoy watching movies...

Hungry children still need help
5/19/2022 3:03:38 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   As the school year winds down, once again millions of children and families are facing the reality that hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation. This has been especially true over the last two years. Many of the lines at food pantries that started forming at the beginning of the pandemic still have not disappeared, and rising prices are now stretching families’ budgets past their limits. Congress took action to help early on, providing crucial waivers and flexibilities that allowed schools to serve universal free meals to all students. But these...

Honoring mothers by saving their lives
5/13/2022 11:19:10 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   “I almost died after giving birth to my daughter, Olympia. Yet I consider myself fortunate . . . Every mother, everywhere, regardless of race or background deserves to have a healthy preg-nancy and birth.” When tennis champion Serena Williams started speaking out about her life-threatening com-plications after childbirth, she became one of a growing number of voices drawing attention to a national health crisis. About 700 mothers die each year in the United States due to pregnan-cy-related causes, and 50,000–60,000 more experience...

And then, there it was
5/13/2022 11:16:29 AM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   In getting older, I have discovered, I pay a little more attention to my dietary habits. Or, maybe I should say, The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage pays more attention to my dietary habits. With a close handle on my diet, she leads the way in what she refers to as "A healthy diet." Several times a week, she will give me a cookie. As she gives it to me, she will say, "One is enough." I usually respond by saying, "One more is never enough." Things turned around just last week. I was taking some things to the...

Generation Nihil: Who/Us/Why
5/5/2022 10:56:31 AM

By LRon Brooks   Driving around medium-size, rural red-state town I live in the other day, I received a text from my 16-year-old son’s mother, reminding me that I had to monitor the administration of the child’s acne-zapper pills. My eyes rolled to shake the very firmament. He’s old enough to drive, he can mess-up and father a child, he’s legally eligible to have a say in which parent he wants to live with… and oh yeah, this same Cosmopolitan man-of-the-world can’t take his daily meds on his own, nor find his own bum without a Like, Subscribe...

Communities still suffering from COVID-19
5/5/2022 10:53:48 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   The National COVID Week of Remembrance and Action came to a close with new hope that the pandemic may finally be transitioning out of the “full-blown” phase to a more controlled one in the United States, and that vaccines might soon be on the way for the youngest American children. But there were also new reminders of how devastating the pandemic has already been for millions of American families. Researchers from the Black Coalition Against COVID (BCAC), the Equity Research and Innovation Center at Yale School of Medicine, and the Satcher...

Maybe we should go back to smoke signal communications
5/5/2022 10:46:18 AM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   I must admit that communication is an essential part of my life today. The longer I live, the more sophisticated those communications become, and it’s challenging to me. Recently, I was working on my latest book using my latest computer and its programs. As I was working, I remembered that I did not always use a computer for writing. I used one of those archaic machines called the "typewriter." Does anybody today know what a typewriter is? While I was writing my first book, I thought maybe I should upgrade to a computer. I had to think...

Tax Day Choices
4/28/2022 5:28:12 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   April 18 was Tax Day in the United States, and this year, the day was an especially sad reminder that the refundable, monthly expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC) that ended in December 2021 was short lived. The expanded CTC was a lifeline that benefited 90 percent of our nation’s children and lifted 3 million children above the federal poverty line in a single month by providing families much-needed cash to afford the basics. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities noted 90 percent of families with incomes below $35,000 spent it on food, utilities,...

The Good, the Bad and the Grouchy
4/28/2022 5:27:30 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Have you ever had a week where everything went just perfect? Neither have I. Every Monday morning, I plan a perfect week, and I try my best to stick to that plan. My problem is simple, I do not know the meaning of the word "perfect." So I asked The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage once, she looked at me and said with a smile, "Just watch me." Recently my week wasn't going very well, and I was getting a little, well, what should I say, grouchy. Normally I'm never grouchy, so I did not know how to be grouchy until I...
