Religious ignorance hurts

A new poll finds atheist and agnostics know more about religion than believers do. Maybe the pollsters weren't asking the right questions.

Rule of law in a recession

In 1776, John Adams published "Thoughts on Government." This document was highly influential in establishing the foundations and framework of our nation. Two very important concepts Adams promoted were that America ought to be a nation of laws, not of men, and the separation of powers between the executive, judiciary, and legislature.

How times have changed

Recently there was an interesting piece of information in a popular newspaper stating that less than 10 percent of the families in the United States had a member of the family who had served in the military. If you think about the experiences of the labeled "greatest" and "baby boomer" generations then that is an astonishing piece of news.

The silver lining

It is true what they say about attitudes and smiles -- they are infectious. They are capable of affecting the mind-set and emotions of others. As I checked out at the grocery store last week, the clerk asked me, "Have you had a good day?" It was the manner in which she posed her question that caught me off guard. She stood there waiting for my response with realness. Unless my naiveté was clouding my view, I saw the clerk's chat as genuine and instantly wanted to emulate her optimism. By following her lead, the crisis that had been bestowed ...

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. I think everyone understands teachers, textbooks, computers, library books, pencil sharpeners and the many other items used in instruction. But there are many other areas that are extremely important to the day-to-day operation of our schools that sometimes get overlooked.

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. Despite being raised a Jew in my youth, I was fairly protected from anti-Semitism ... but not completely. I know something of what it's like to be derided for my heritage.

An unplanned 'planned' trip

Earlier this year, my wife and I thought about taking advantage of a long Labor Day weekend plus vacation days to visit a number of historical sites in several East Coast states. We looked at places to go in both North and South Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York where her family lives.
