Noted and passed - Feb. 4, 2013

• Diplomatic posts have always been plum political prizes for presidents to hand out to supporters and donors; over the years, about 30 percent of such jobs have been awarded to people who were willing to pay for them. This year, with President Obama having a hefty list of well-to-do supporters, the price is higher than ever, one news outlet reports. Being called "ambassador" and receiving a post to a safe country with a stable political environment is quite a catch. Of course, Obama's doing nothing different than his predecessors have; it's just that the price tag has gone ...

Hurt mom seeks reconciliation with son

Dear Annie: Two years ago, my son's fiancee recommended we rotate who hosts Christmas dinner. That year, she and my son went to her mom's house, and last year they were supposed to come to mine. Instead, they went to her mom's again and were upset that I didn't want to tag along.

Annie, at the time, my 73-year-old mother was in a rehab facility.

Gun violence

We noted recently that we don't see much reason for people to own assault-type weapons and magazines that hold large amounts of ammunition. And we certainly don't see any harm to the second amendment in requiring background checks for all people who are purchasing guns. But in the ongoing debate about gun violence in this country, which has reached epidemic proportions, we are all being naive if we think instituting new laws is going to stop such violence. That doesn't mean some measures aren't wise and won't make a small difference in the ownership of ...

Moral and spiritual death

Once again we are faced with a horrible massacre at a school. This time it was a Connecticut elementary school. As frustrating to every American as they are devastating to those immediately involved, my prayers are with those suffering beyond my imagination.

Where certainty ends....

How do we regard change in our lives? Do we view change as a good thing, simply a revision of the timeworn replaced by a positive update perhaps? Or do we see change as a painstaking event, an alteration of the ordinary? Do we know the timing of change or does it arrive as a complete surprise? Is change perpetual or as random as snow in Camden? There is change that skulks in at the most unexpected moments like an uninvited guest. And then there's the type of change we invite in and embrace with open arms. Some change ...
