Churchill

Pot is different from growing, distributing and selling potatoes, beef, salmon or cars, common commodities with of course
While I do expect him to have some clever moves ahead, since he is obviously a very shrewd guy, my worry is that he will
Were he just another billionaire (and it is a sign of the times that even that phrase is now possible), were he just another
By starving themselves slowly the hunger striker makes public the very private act of dying and their suffering becomes a source of strength eliciting strong emotions among supporters and observers.
Each new technology gives rise to a leader (or demagogue) who "gets" the new technology before anyone else. Kennedy understood television. What Trump understands, better than any other politician, is both television, a relatively old medium, and Twitter -- an entirely new medium.
Since religious people are in the business of hope, some believers like myself think this decline might just be the best thing that ever happened to organized religion. Though painful and confusing, the time we are entering offers opportunities for renewal.
We only have to study democratic versus dictatorial governments to learn that we thrive in environments of tolerance and
As South Carolina's Capitol grounds and other jurisdictions decide the fate of their most prominent emblems of past oppression and contemporary reaction, Stone Mountain guarantees that at least one Confederate icon will loom over the South's largest city for as long into the future as mankind can foresee.
The book is called "Fool's Talk," written by the Oxford-educated cultural scholar and author, Os Guinness. And if Twain and Chesterton were writers who marshaled wit and paradox in commending wisdom, Guinness richly mines many a classic vein of wisdom, and wit, to help Christians in our time discern what it means to be winsome, and compelling, in commending faith.

Now in performances at 47th Street Theater. In performances until July 26 at the Theatre at St. Clements. Much of the show
Sendups are always tricky -- but the film noir parody Kill Me Like You Mean It, now off-Broadway at the Fourth Street Theatre, riffs on the genre with existential glee.
When I was at college, a favorite pastime of mine was sitting around with a bunch of other procrastinators keen on determining the most important person of the 20th century. I maintained it was Winston Churchill.
The procession began at parliament, with the chimes of Big Ben silenced for the rest of the day, and the coffin was taken
The suburban office parks that started to go up in the 1950s in the golden age of the automobile and cheap gasoline, are, like suburban malls and big-box stores, generally boring and sterile places, with forgettable knock-off Modernist or Post-Modernist architecture and vast parking lots. Most have not aged well.
Moreover, Patton's notion of meeting the enemy "now, rather than later" in retrospect seems not the mere wiles of a warmonger
Would Winston Churchill have sent troops in to stop Vladimir Putin's grab for the Crimea? Those still calling for military action love to draw parallels with Churchill's early and unyielding opposition to Hitler during the run-up to World War II.
