With Gluckstadt’s pending incorporation — which seems likely — a moratorium on certain types of development seems to make sense so the new city could determine its own growth.
  • Ten days ago, President Trump was saying ‘the United States should withdraw from Syria.’ We convinced him it was necessary to stay.”
  • LOWRY/The moralist takes on the president
    James Comey did it, naturally, for the children.
  • EDITORIAL/The hysteria state
    The judge who ruled the other day that coffee purveyors in California must put a cancer-risk warning label on their beans calls to mind the old joke about the man, getting a little long in the tooth, who was told by his doctor that he would have to give up wine, women and song. “But Doc,” he replied, “if I have to give up wine and women, what will I have to sing about?”
  • DUNCAN/“The sanctity of life”
    Turn in your Bible to Genesis 9:1-7. As we have reviewed the early chapters of the book of Genesis, we have seen the work of creation recounted in Genesis 1. We've seen the special favor of God
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/John 20:24-29
    We could call this passage the “Doubting Thomas” episode.  Thomas has become as synonymous with doubting something that is true, as Judas is for betraying a friend. The story of Thomas however, becomes our story often times in our lives. We are given to doubting the Lord Jesus Christ and the truths connected to him when providence seems to go against us.
  • EDITORIALS/A nice hand for the big lady
    The revolution, when it comes, won’t be on television, to the disappointment of couch potatoes everywhere, but there’s already “the resistance,” which is on a channel near you. In the 14 months since Donald Trump became president, “resistance” programming has dominated the air waves, and cable and satellite, too.
  • With his Sunday tweet that Bashar Assad, “Animal Assad,” ordered a gas attack on Syrian civilians, and Vladimir Putin was morally complicit in the atrocity, President Donald Trump just painted himself and us into a corner.
  • LOWRY/Facebook is stealing your information
    Once again, Mark Zuckerberg is sorry.
  • For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.                                                                                           — Romans 5:6-8 ESV
  • On many issues — naming Scalia-like judges and backing Reagan-like tax cuts — President Trump is a conventional Republican.
