Is gap to a diverse world narrowing?

It dawned on me Sunday morning that, in the last six days, I'd attended a Lady Gaga concert in Raleigh and dressed in drag to sing a seductive rendition of "Makin' Whoopee" alongside Camden native Megan Davis Campbell -- twice.

Running a complex operation

Napoleon talked about an army moving on its stomach. While it isn't an army, a school district does moves on its stomach (just visit one of our cafeterias) and on many other things.

Muslims are not the enemy

For weeks -- no, let's be fair -- months, perhaps as long as a year and a half, there has been a growing anti-Islamic sentiment in America.

Worship takes many forms

I read recently that a girl who had been suspended from a North Carolina high school for refusing to remove her nose stud now says her body piercings are based on her religion.

Looking forward to the fall TV season

I get a little excited this time of year about the new and returning shows that will be popping up on my TV (and, now, computer) screen. Yes, I'm a TV junkie and a bit more of a boob-tuber than I should be.

The 'muddy death' of Pat Tillman

The Pat Tillman saga has long fascinated me for a number of reasons, and a new documentary released in August, "The Tillman Story," puts this complex and melancholy drama yet again in the forefront of my mind.
