Pledge of Allegiance challenged in Massachusetts Supreme Court
Wed Sep 4, 2013
As a Christian, I choose not to say the pledge of allegiance, as I pledge myself to nothing other than God. But, as a Christian, I also believe God has ordained governments, and that no government is outside of His authority. For that reason, I object to the 1950's premise for including "under God" …
'It is hotter than anywhere I've ever been': London skyscraper melts cars, fries eggs
Tue Sep 3, 2013
High efficiency household windows have been known to melt vinyl siding when the sun is reflected just right. Relatively new issue, as window/glass efficiency has improved. Expect computer modeling will become standard protocol.
Red worms found in drinking water supply for Oklahoma town
Thu Aug 29, 2013
"after red worms were found in the filtering system" From what I read, there were no worms coming out of the taps. The filtering system was doing it's job. But as a precaution, residents are asked not to consume the water. We are way to twitch a bunch. Most of the folks squirming about this have no …
How to teach your kids it's OK to have less than their friends
Tue Jul 23, 2013
"Better off" doesn't mean happier. More than one stylishly dressed teen would welcome an invitation to an old fashioned family meal. Value is relative. My boys were the "poor kids" in a shared rented house during their college days. They survived on limited budgets, and worried how their trust accou …
When school doesn't feel safe, facing facts helps
Tue May 21, 2013
Thank you for a reasoned approach. Wish there'd been a little more of this type discussion after Newtown. We live in a culture of fear, fueled in large part by 24-hour media coverage. Fear is unproductive. As for basements/safe rooms, these are not easy to retrofit, not always effective, and not che …
Larry Page's damaged vocal cords: Treatment comes with trade-offs
Wed May 15, 2013
It's news because "at least 5 percent of Americans have experienced paralysis of a vocal cord", and this is an opportunity to provide information. Hoarseness after an infection that doesn't go away in a few days should probably be checked. Unfortunately, most doctors don't think about this possibili …
Tiny sip of beer enough to trigger dopamine release
Mon Apr 15, 2013
Not a surprise. Think Pavlov did this experiment roughly a hundred years ago. It's why realtors putout fresh backed goods at an open house. Aroma (and taste is tied to smell) trigger memory. My question would be whether someone who has no experience with beer would have the same dopamine reaction? I …
Marriage debate revives questions about high court role as social change-maker
Fri Mar 29, 2013
Getting rid of "marriage" at the government level really is the best answer. But there are two separate issues in the "marriage" debate. The first is the social. It does not matter if everything could be equal in civil unions, the same-sex community wants the WORD marriage. Even as the list of "ben …
High school football star with autism denied extra year of eligibility
Thu Mar 14, 2013
This young man, no matter how compelling his story, would be a physically mature, athletically skilled, 19, 20 and possibly 21 years old, playing against students who are 14-18 years old. As a parent, I'd be concerned. No matter how heartbreaking, the state has to consider the needs of all the athle …
Strong support continues for minimum wage
Thu Mar 7, 2013
When I started work, minimum wage was $2.10, a McDonalds burger was 19 cents. Gas was never over $.50 a gallon. 1972. So I've been there and done that more than once. Raising minimum wage, provided you keep your job, gives only a slight reprieve until the prices catch back up. And they will catch ba …
