Wherever they are I will find them
2/23/2022 5:30:26 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Recently, The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and her spouse took a short vacation that was long overdue. Vacations are very hard to organize and schedule when you have a busy life. But, thanks to the ingenuity of my wife, we were able to plan out a vacation. The motel we stay in is owned by our friends who give us a family/friend discount. Any discount, in my mind or pocketbook, is a great blessing. We love staying there and enjoy the surroundings. As we were signing in, the motel lady said to my wife, “There are about ten new thrift stores...

SANTA ANA—An Orange County sheriff's deputy won't face criminal charges for shooting a homeless man with mental health issues who was stopped for jaywalking, according to a review released Friday.

The results of the investigation were contained in a letter to Sheriff Don Barnes that was publicly released Friday. The death of the...

Many faith leaders wary of religious exemptions for vaccine
2/11/2022 6:50:29 PM

By the thousands, Americans have been seeking religious exemptions in order to circumvent COVID-19 vaccine mandates, but generally they are doing so without the encouragement of major denominations and prominent religious leaders. From the Vatican, Pope Francis has defended the vaccines as “the most reasonable solution to the pandemic.” The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America declared categorically that its followers would not be offered religious exemptions. Robert Jeffress, the conservative pastor of a Baptist megachurch in Dallas, voiced similar sentiments. “Since...

Black History Month right now
2/11/2022 6:28:46 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   The roots of Black History Month in our nation are nearly a century old, but at a moment when some people are seeking to block what children can be taught about the intersection of Black history and American history, its existence right now is as necessary as ever. Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the son of former slaves, a pioneering Harvard-trained historian, and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, created Negro History Week in 1926. At the time he was alarmed because so few people, White or Black, knew anything...

It was a Murphy’s Law kind of week
2/11/2022 6:26:11 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   My past week was an open commentary on “Murphy’s Law.” Offhand I am not quite sure who come up with this concept, but they must have had a week somewhat like my week this past week. I had to go across town and endure all that traffic. It is not my favorite place to drive. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens. I turned the key several times and then, I do not know why I did it, but I glanced at the gas gauge and the arrow was...

Fox on the Run
2/11/2022 6:00:14 PM

By LRon Brooks   The Crazy Idea came to me when I read the headline this morning about Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman suing Rudy Giuliani and the most-recent former President for intimidation and retaliation. For some reason, that information was the catalyst for my mental freezer door to creak open and a weak, unsteady lightbulb within to struggle to flicker to life. I immediately flashed back to the MeToo Movement and thought of poor former Sen. Al Franken. Most folks I know right-of-center will privately admit the Franken ‘outing’ was strictly political...

What did she just say?
1/27/2022 11:06:16 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   To be honest, I don't always hear what I'm supposed to hear. I do have ears, but sometimes they are not working in such a way as to benefit me. Often, The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage will talk to me about something, and then at the end of that, she will ask me a question of which I have no idea what the answer would be. I did hear her talking; I just did not hear what she was saying. That's why I say, "Yes, dear," to knock her off her game, thinking that I heard what she said. I must confess that when anybody, not just my...

Remembering Robert Holland Jr.
1/27/2022 10:50:02 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   On December 22, Robert Holland Jr. passed away. Bob was a corporate groundbreaker, a marvelous fellow Spelman College Board of Trustees chair, and a wonderful role model and philanthropist who always wanted to open doors for others. He was especially dedicated to making sure more young people had the chance to follow his example and pursue their own dreams. He grew up in Albion, Michigan, with devoted parents who were not formally educated themselves but prized education for their five children. His close-knit neighborhood also encouraged his academic...
