‘Exactly what do you mean when you say “more perfect”…?’
11/12/2020 7:33:45 PM

By L Ron Brooks   THE HEARTLAND—I ran down to Target on Saturday; some idiot had brought home 1-ply TP from a previous errand run and found himself unexpectedly preparing to receive 2-ply houseguests. And I pulled into the parking lot and saw something I hadn’t seen since I don’t reckon I can recall: Cars! As far as I could see. I found a place several rows farther away than I’d been accustomed to sliding into over the last six months. Rounding the corner of the store; sure enough, the other lot was jammed, too. I went into the store, thinking it was...

Honoring Rev. C.T. Vivian’s Legacy
11/5/2020 9:41:13 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   My much beloved friend Rev. C.T. Vivian was a leader in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), a confidant of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a role model for so many of us in the 1960s era of civil rights activism, and a mighty and indispensable long haul moral warrior for justice. He was also a treasured personal friend known for being unfailingly gracious, generous, warm, and loving. I keep a photo in my home office of C.T. with my whole family taken when my husband Peter and I took our children and...

Savvy Senior - How Seniors can Save Money on Prescription Eyeglasses
11/5/2020 9:38:54 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, What tips can you recommend for finding affordable prescription eyeglasses? I used to have vision insurance through my work but lost it when I turned 65 and signed up for Medicare. Need Spectacles   Dear Need, Unfortunately, in 2020 it’s still true that original Medicare does not cover vision services, which includes routine eye exams and prescription eyeglasses – unless you’ve just had cataract surgery. While there’s no one solution to this common need, here are a few tips that can help you save.   Medicare...

Things have a way of catching up with me
11/5/2020 9:37:05 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—I have learned in my life, and probably just one thing: things have a way of catching up with me. I can't get away with anything. It's not that I don't try. There were a few times when I've come pretty close to getting away with something, but it didn't turn out the way I hoped. One example stands out. Last year someone hacked into the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage’s bank account and purchased a case of wine for around $700. It took her a few days to see this in her bank account. When she saw it, she...

11/5/2020 9:35:29 PM

PEKIN, Ill. (AP)—A 99-year-old central Illinois woman has voted in every presidential election since 1944, casting her latest ballot on Friday. Harriet Harris of Pekin cast an early ballot after driving herself to a community center in Tremont. A few election workers and voters clapped when she was done, according to The (Peoria) Journal Star. Harris said she studied a sample ballot at home so she was ready to make her choices. Over the years, she has had to make adjustments while voting, including getting used to new technologies. “The electronic age has passed me...

Savvy Senior - What happens to Medicare if Obamacare/ACA is overturned?
10/28/2020 5:09:15 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, Will my Medicare benefits be affected if Obamacare is overturned by the Supreme Court? Concerned Beneficiary   Dear Concerned, Unfortunately, yes. If the Affordable Care Act (ACA)—also known as Obamacare—gets repealed by the Supreme Court next year, it will weaken Medicare and increase costs for beneficiaries. Here’s what you should know. Currently, about 60 million people are covered under Medicare, the federal health insurance program for people 65 and older and people of all ages with disabilities. Even though the main aim of the...

Vote, Vote, Vote
10/28/2020 5:05:58 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “The first fact that we need to understand is that America has a longer history of disenfranchisement than it does of enfranchisement. What do I mean by that? At the time of the American Revolution when America was finding its footing, more than two-thirds of the people who resided in the colonies couldn’t vote. You had to be white, you had to be male, you had to have property, and you had to be privileged. This history of America is a history of political exclusion . . . It was because people were trying to...

10/28/2020 5:03:55 PM

By John Rogers   LOS ANGELES (AP)—You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant. But it appears we've seen Arlo Guthrie tell us that in person for the last time. In lengthy posts on his Facebook page and website, the 73-year-old folksinger announced Friday he is retiring from performance immediately. He's canceled numerous shows he had planned around the country for the next year and said he won't be booking any more. “It's been a great 50-plus years of being a working entertainer, but I reached the difficult decision that touring and stage...

The alleged warrant for my arrest
10/28/2020 4:52:25 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—This past week was one of the best weeks I've had in a long time. I got everything completed, as well as some overdue projects. There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of having accomplished your goals for the week. As far as I was concerned, this called for an Apple fritter celebration. Just keep this between us and don’t let you-know-who hear. Driving home from my office, I was whistling and just enjoying myself while I was nibbling on my Apple fritter. My goal was to get it finished before I got home, and because...
