• Former President George Bush was refreshingly candid in last week's interviews with NBC and other media outlets; he was doing a series of drop-ins to promote his new book, "Decision Points." Even those who thought Bush didn't do a great job in the Oval Office will have to admit that he's exhibited good character by refusing to criticize his successor, Barack Obama. Unlike Jimmy Carter, who seems to make a habit of spouting his opinions and denigrating presidents, Bush has displayed an admirable restraint.

"Don't blame all the things that have happened to us lately on the Republicans," humorist Will Rogers once said. "They're not smart enough to have thought 'em up." That advice still rings true, especially after our recent midterm elections. Both parties need to wise up.

When Republicans handed Bill Clinton's hat to him in the 1994 election, gaining control of Congress in a GOP landslide, the former Arkansas governor moved deftly to the middle of the political spectrum. It was a spectacular turnaround following his and his wife's failed health care initiatives, and it not only saved his presidency, it made him a model for other elected officials who learned to listen to what voters said and adapt their own policies to the mood of the country.
If you're like me, you're often befuddled by the Hollywood lifestyle and the sometimes bizarre behavior of movie stars and rock musicians.

The first child, dubbed the "Mississippi baby," is now 3 years old and still virus-free; the second one shows no signs of HIV nine months after ...

As a child I will never forget getting the opportunity to participate in the worship service on Palm Sunday. For most congregations it is customary to have the children of the church come into the sanctuary waving palm branches at some point during the service to help give everyone a visual of the great celebration that Jesus experienced as he made His entry into Jerusalem the week of his crucifixion. As much as I love the celebration that surrounds Palm Sunday and Easter, we as believers do ourselves a disservice if we don't also understand just what it is ...
