  • Reader shines light on ‘untrue’ issue

    President Obama says: "No federal dollars (in his health care proposal) will be used to fund abortions." That is untrue. Obama's proposal explicitly allows payment for all elective abortions under his "public option." Any person enrolled in that plan would be required to pay an additional premium (an abortion "surcharge") to cover the cost. Abortionists would send bills for abortions to the federal government and receive payment checks drawn on a federal Treasury account.  The funds in this account are government (i.e. public) funds.

  • This whole poll is, like, so annoying

    According to a recent national Marist Poll, many Americans can’t stand the word “whatever.”

    Forty-seven percent of those polled found the word to be the most, like, annoying. “You know” is second, at 25 percent, and “it is what it is” comes in third at 11 percent. Other words or phrases that are like, whatever, include, “anyway” and “at the end of the day.”

  • Along Twin Ponds Road

    “Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day….”  Here I go again, singing to myself early in the morning before daybreak.  I just can’t help myself.  It’s a cool, almost crisp, morning.  The stars are shining brightly above.  I’m a lucky man and so glad to be alive.  I only wish more of you didn’t have to rush off to work or to school and that you were able to take life a little bit easier.
