The BOGO Queen has left the building
4/1/2022 5:38:39 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   When it comes to shopping, I am three coupons short of sanity. I have never liked going shopping unless it has to do with books. Then I’m on my turf. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is a different story, and is why I call her the BOGO Queen. She has earned this title a thousand times. It took me a long time to understand what the word BOGO meant, then the wife explained it to a leader like me, Buy One Get One. She will search several times a week for these BOGO coupons on her computer. Every once in a while, I will hear her say,...

Mirror mirror on the wall, stop laughing!
3/23/2022 1:21:25 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   As old as I am, and I expect to get as old as possible, I have noticed that I see things differently than I did a few years ago. I’m not sure if my vision has changed or my perspective. But one thing is certain; something has changed. One of the most aggravating things in my life is the mirror in my bathroom. The other morning it dawned on me. I walked into the bathroom, glanced at my mirror, and laughed. At first, I did not know what I was laughing at until I re-examined my mirror. There this person was, hair going in every direction, at...

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson: Breaking another barrier
3/23/2022 1:01:23 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   WASHINGTON—At the White House event where President Biden introduced her as the nominee for the United States Supreme Court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson gave a moving speech describing her journey from her early childhood as the daughter of public school teachers to her nomination to the highest court in the nation. She ended by sharing a coincidence she said “meant a great deal to me over the years”: “As it happens, I share a birthday with the first Black woman ever to be appointed as a federal judge: the Honorable Constance Baker...

A world safe for children
3/16/2022 5:07:55 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   “Tell Me Where to Be Born”   People of the world, tell me where to be born.   If I were born in the land of “your interest” would you let me die?   People of the world, my name is Holocaust and I’m fifty plus years old.   My name is Sarajevo and I’m three years old.   My name is Bihac and I’m but a month old.   I have no name, I’m yet to be born.   People of the world, tell me where to be born, so you will not hate me one day, so...

Laughter is not for sissies
3/16/2022 5:02:09 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Since birth, I have been infected with a Laughter-Virus. I’m not sure which side of the family it came from, or it could’ve come from both sides. But the least little thing will make me laugh. Sometimes I have a hard time stopping laughing. I have yet to find a mask big enough to cover my face while I’m laughing. Although I believe laughter to be very good and healthy, I must confess that sometimes my laughter has gotten me into trouble, especially with The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Not long ago, she came into the living...

Revisiting Fannie Lou Hamer
3/10/2022 1:34:06 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   On February 22 the wonderful documentary Fannie Lou Hamer’s America received its broadcast premiere on PBS. Mrs. Hamer’s grandniece Monica Land, one of the film’s producers, began with the idea of creating a documentary that would highlight the personal and family side of her “Aunt Fannie Lou.” But as she and her colleagues started their official research they realized they were finding a treasure trove of rare photographs, news footage of public speeches, original television interviews, and recordings of Mrs. Hamer singing...

One mouth, too many words
3/10/2022 12:25:38 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   I read somewhere where the average woman speaks 20,000 words a day, and the average man speaks 7,000 words a day. I’m not sure if that’s true because I never believe everything I read, particularly on my computer, unless I write it. If this is true, who came up with it and how did they get to this conclusion? I can’t remember any day in my life when I spoke 7,000 words. At least out loud. I probably thought that many words, but they didn’t all touch my tongue. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is a different story. As...

‘Crisis’: Climate panel flags Great Barrier Reef devastation
3/2/2022 2:43:39 PM

SYDNEY (AP)—It was the silence of the sea that first rattled the teenage snorkeler, followed by a sense of horror as she saw the coral below had been drained of its kaleidoscopic color. This once-vibrant site on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef—a site she’d previously likened to a busy capital city—had become a ghost town, the victim of yet another mass bleaching event. On that day in 2020, Ava Shearer got out of the water and cried. Today, with the release of a United Nations climate report that paints a dire picture of the Great Barrier Reef’s future,...

What a crazy world we live in
3/2/2022 2:39:40 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Driving home from an appointment across town, my wife and I encountered some crazy driver weaving in and out on the road in front of us. The fact that there was not an accident was somewhat surprising. “What,” The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage exclaimed, “is wrong with people?” Looking at her and laughing, I said, “People today are crazy!” Together we laughed, knowing it was true. If there ever has been a time that people were crazy, it is today. What a crazy world we live in these days. Just when you...

A Prayer to the God of All Children
