Parker: Before we lose our minds

WASHINGTON -- Current quibbling over what Jeb Bush meant when he said it's time to phase out and replace Medicare -- as opposed to "attacking the seniors," as one woman at a recent event bellowed out -- will soon seem quaint against the realities of our future.

Phillips: The best medicine

The world, and life in general, is filled with sadness, despair, hopelessness, hatred, evil, negativity and sorrow of all kinds. Sorry to be such a downer, but it's simply a fact.

Moment of Nature - July 24, 2015

The mere mention of the word "root extraction" concurs up images of the dentist chair, Novocain and the shrill sound of the drilling tool, which sends a shiver up my spine! Thankfully, extraction in this context is not of tooth roots but of tree roots.
