Noted and passed for Oct. 17, 2011

• If you don't think things change rapidly in the political world, you need look no further than Herman Cain, who was a mere blip on the Republican radar a few weeks ago and is now leading the polls. Only time will tell whether his star will fade, and there are many who criticize his "9-9-9" economic plan, advocating 9 percent income tax, 9 percent corporate tax and 9 percent sales tax. But one thing's for sure: the U. S. tax code is so burdensome and unwieldy that it needs a complete revamping. We wish other candidates would give ...

Five pieces of garbage you should throw out of your life

It seems like everyone is in a race to be the best -- the best parent, the best spouse, the best neighbor, the best PTA president. To become the best, people often lose sight of the things that really matter. Unfortunately, I've even seen this in my own life. As my husband worked toward a law degree, I pushed forward, day after day, trying my best to be a supportive wife -- the best homemaker, the best mom, the best neighbor, etc. But I often found myself burned out and discouraged. At times, I just couldn't do it.
