‘All-American’ Muslim bashers

A conservative Christian group has launched a boycott against "All-American Muslim." The TLC reality TV show about Muslim families in America fails to live down to the group's narrow-minded stereotypes. Their gripe, in my view, makes about as much sense as boycotting "The Cosby Show" because it doesn't mention black street gangs.

To give or not to give

During the holiday season, especially through these tough economic times, people who are a little or a lot more fortunate than others struggle with the dilemma of whether to give or not to give to those in need of help. We have the guy outside your friendly neighborhood Wal-Mart, ringing a handbell, with a basket so far from it, urging you to give to the needy. Then there's Families Helping Families, a very admirable charity that's got the phone lines and the newscast promoting their organization, and let us not forget the Toys for Tots program. What able-bodied ...

Camden Media Co. a longtime promoter of equine industry

Having been involved in the equine activities of Camden since 1952, I write this letter to express my gratitude and thanks to the Camden Chronicle-Independent for its outstanding coverage and support of these activities.

Medicare

With the U.S. budget deficit still spiraling amid partisan stagnation and deadlock in Washington, two lawmakers, one a Republican and the other a Democrat, have finally come together to advance a proposal that would revamp the runaway costs of Medicare. Though solons in the nation's capital have refused thus far to address entitlement spending -- there's no way to bring the budget under control without changes to both Medicare and Social Security -- perhaps this is a ray of hope that there are some people in Washington who are willing to work together to salvage the fiscal integrity of ...

The aviator's helmet

Bob Clithero displays a vintage leather pilot's helmet of a type that would have been used by aviators in the early 20th century. Clithero spoke about Winston Groom's book, "The Aviators," during a recent meeting of the Golden K Club. The book is about three giants of aviation -- Jimmy Doolittle, Charles Lindbergh, and Eddie Rickenbacker -- and their enormous influence and contribution to aviation and to the world. All three, Clithero said, were raised in relative poverty and estranged from their fathers, but had strong relationships with their mothers. All three were innovators and mechanical geniuses. All three survived ...
