Recent Happenings According to the Associated Press
Each evening about 7:30 PM I make a point to go to my computer and read the news stories and headlines put up by my Internet provider on their Start Page. The news is provided by that great American bastion of journalistic truths, the Associated Press, better known as the AP.

Carter's Folly: Dancing With Hamas
Well, Jimmy Carter is at it again. Now he's in the Middle East, meeting with the terrorists Hamas, embarrassing his country and angering Israel. Carter is a former President of the United States of America. No matter how regretful that may be, it is a fact.

More Loony Tunes and Other Oddities, Lies and Nursery Rhymes
Every year they get more hilarious and foolish. More jerky tales from more jerky people who are either so ignorant or so power-hungry they must invent - or reinvent - more idiocies for us to digest with our politics and presidential campaigns.

The Media Empire Strikes Back: It's Election Time Again
Well, here we go again. It's big-time politics. The media's finest hour! Just the look and sound of the word "politics" grates on me. I dislike politics of any type, but especially American elections, and specifically, presidential election years. The British election version is probably just as bad, not far removed from ours, but the rhetoric seems cleaner and more specific.

The Superman Syndrome: Even the Man of Steel Has Trouble Surviving Today
Modern day stories of horrible everyday products we use that will kill us, constant recalls of everything from toys to bad food to autos, and the new threats of population wipe-outs by global warming and a nuclear armed Iran threaten us on a daily basis. Rising seas, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, melting ice caps and brain-eating amoebae that lie in our lakes and swimming pools are just some of the perils of the 21st century that bombard us.

Colors ...
I read a subscriber's letter in a local newspaper recently that shook me to my senses about this presidential campaign and election The letter was headed "Candidates Should Wear American Colors", and I quote the writer in entirety.

The Democrats New Lines
Well, we've been listening to you for months now - Ms. Clinton, John Edwards, Obama, Reid and Pelosi, Murtha, Kennedy and all the rest - about how bad President Bush is, the battles in Iraq and Afghanistan and how wonderful each of you are. And how great it will be for us when you win it all.

I read a letter in a Letters to the Editor section appearing in the Knoxville (TN) News-Sentinel on Friday, February 1 that shook me to my senses about this presidential campaign and election.

Is Racial Profiling Really Needed?
We read and hear a lot about the pros and cons of racial profiling these days. Many Americans believe that after the horrors of September 11, 2001 ANY means may be used to stop further murdering and suffering of innocent people by Islamic jihadists.

What About Stem Cells?
The great hope of stem cells is making cells and tissues for new medical therapies. Pluripotent stem cells offer the possibility of a renewal source of replacement cells and tissues to treat a myriad of diseases, conditions and disabilities including Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, other diseases of the brain, spinal cord injury, stroke, burns, heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Anyone Can Be A Soldier
We hear a lot of media hype today about "heroes", and almost without notice wartime analogies and terms have slipped into sports writing and news broadcasts. Tinseltown's movies display hype-casting and false visions of war and use actors who have never worn a military uniform except out of the wardrobe department.

I, Robot?
I've been watching closely the technology and the work the Japanese especially have been doing with humanoid robots. As a child I was fascinated by Robbie the Robot, that lovable TV character of long ago, even if he was fat, had a transparent head, talked funny and rattled.

More Loony Tunes for Christmas
Every year they get more hilarious and foolish. More jerky tales from more jerky people who are either so bored or so ignorant they must invent - or reinvent - more idiocies for us to digest with our Christmas dinner and celebration of Christianity’s most holy day.

"The View" is Blind, and Hokey
I read somewhere the other day Barbara Walters of the TV program "The View" criticized the President and Laura Bush for sending her a "religious" Christmas card. How insensitive, discourteous and plain stupid can one so-called "celebrity" be? Will someone tell me who watches such trash as The View on television? Is the whole program a discussion of lesbianism and secularism, and what happens in the lofts and offices of Manhattan?

What If Christmas Disappears? And With It Our Christian Heritage?
I've been reading the greetings written in the colorful Christmas cards that I receive each year from family and friends. And as has been my custom for many years, I read and reread the beautiful old reply "Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus" written by the editor of the New York Sun, Frances Pharcellus Church, to Virginia O'Hanlon, age 8, and published in 1897.

"Fat Michael" Strikes Again
"Fat Michael" Moore has done it! Outlived Roger Smith, the General Motors CEO he maligned in his first idiotic documentary, "Roger and Me". Moore used the success of an astute businessman to create a case for his liberal rages for his "hometown" of Flint, MI, and convinced a left-wing Hollywood crowd he had "talent". But of course Mr. Smith was lots older than Moore.

How To Be Happy
In the last paragraph of The English Patient, Hana, the protagonist, stands alone in her house and, because hair flies in her eyes, accidentally knocks a glass from the cupboard, smashing it into a hundred pieces. Meanwhile, halfway around the world, Kip, the man she loves, easily catches a fork an inch from hitting the floor similarly brushed off the dinner table by his daughter.
