Fighting cancer

Not so long ago, we remarked that this country's war on cancer, initiated by President Nixon more than four decades ago, had in many ways been a disappointment, with the death rate from various kinds of cancers still high. But in some areas, there have been great advances, and a new study released this week proved what many have believed all along: that colonoscopies are extremely effective in reducing the incidence of colo-rectal cancer. In patients tracked as long as 20 years, the death rate was reduced by more than 50 percent.

The founding fathers never intended to remove all semblances of religion from public life, yet we have moved in that direction. But a recent attempt by one South Carolina lawmaker to question potential judges about religious matters went far beyond reason and was properly squelched by state agency staffers.
