Man vs. reality TV

I gave up television several years ago when I bid farewell to Jack Bauer and the final season of "24." Not sure why I was drawn to the series about a fictional counter terrorist unit and its main protagonist, Jack Bauer; perhaps it was the excitement of watching the unit diffuse major terrorist attacks in merely one hour of real time in one very bad day. Other than sports, worthwhile news and the occasional "Office" episode, I've chosen to put the box on the back burner.

Look out for those in need around us

I am very appalled; I thought that with our economy in the condition it is in now, how can the people of Camden and surrounding areas be so set on having a Y, to bring in visitors, friends and whatever else they can think of. In my opinion, this is pure greed. I have no intentions of leaving anyone out; this includes all proprietors, lawyers and Indian chiefs and let's don't forget the mayor and his committee and all the rich. It's too bad the economy hasn't hit you all yet but don't worry, it ...

Where did Haiti donations go?

Two years after a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands, more than a half-million Haitians are still sleeping under tarps, often in camps without enough water or toilets. As another hurricane season approaches, many people are asking, what happened to the generous donations that Americans gave? Congress should make it easier to find out.

My third failed attempt at breastfeeding, and it's OK

I've come to know the sound all too well -- the unmistakable suction of the breast pump. In fact, my breast pump and I have spent so much time together there are times I think it's talking to me, and sometimes not saying very nice things! Perhaps some are familiar with that distinctive noise as well if they've been as unlucky as me with what I was told would be natural and wonderful.

Every semester since 2006, Kevin Blair has taught an introductory course on poverty at Niagara University. And every semester, he finds a business student who is only enrolled in the class to fulfill a social science elective, or simply needed three more credits to graduate -- not because the student is interested in poverty.
