    By Kim Wilhelm (WICHITA, Kan.) It's known as C Street - a three story building two blocks from the Capitol in Washington D.C. Until recently, most people had never heard of it. But C Street and the politicians associated with it are now in the spotlight because of recent political sex scandals. In June, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitted to having an affair and referred to C Street during a press conference. Sanford said he had received counseling there. He described it as "believe it or not - a Christian bible study." Nevada Senator John Ensign revealed he also...

    November 02, 2008 Ego and Mouth By Thomas Sowell After the big gamble on subprime mortgages that led to the current financial crisis, is there going to be an even bigger gamble, by putting the fate of a nation in the hands of a man whose only qualifications are ego and mouth? Barack Obama has the kind of cocksure confidence that can only be achieved by not achieving anything else. Anyone who has actually had to take responsibility for consequences by running any kind of enterprise-- whether economic or academic, or even just managing a sports team-- is likely at...

    The 1900 Storm: Tragedy and Triumph Post-storm rebuilding considered 'Galveston's finest hour' By MICHAEL A. SMITH The Daily News GALVESTON - The great storm that came roaring out of the Gulf of Mexico 100 years ago, destroying this island city and assuring its place in history, deserves its due. But the wind and water and death brought by the unnamed hurricane, even the acts of courage and sacrifice played out in its face, are only half the story. The article.......

    "I saw Richmond run a race one time where he hit a hurdle and fell. And he got up, got back in the race and finished second. That's the kind of stuff he is made of. And it's pretty symbolic. Hurdles may be there, but they're not insurmountable," says Richmond Flowers Sr. on ESPN Classic's SportsCentury series. more... http://espn.go.com/classic/biography/s/Flowers_Richmond.html
  • A VEHICLE FOR A REALLY BIG WHEEL

    A VEHICLE FOR A REALLY BIG WHEEL - Thursday, November 21, 2002 By DALE McFEATTERS, Scripps Howard News Service An evangelical Christian group is about to launch a series of TV ads that poses the question, "What Would Jesus Drive?" Other religious leaders are asking carmakers that question directly as part of a campaign to get the auto companies to make — and the faithful to buy — fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly vehicles. But they do raise an interesting proposition: What would Jesus have driven? Dale McFeatters takes a satirical look at the news from his very own skewed perspective. First...

    The Catholic Response to Terrorism The reality of evil and the response of faith When tragedy strikes, when horrors such as terrorist acts are inflicted by human beings upon their fellow human beings, our very sense of self is shaken. The rules and rituals that guide us through our daily lives may be temporarily shattered, and we can feel profoundly disoriented, vulnerable, and alone. This is particularly true when we come face-to-face with evil. It is tempting for modern men and women to deny the reality of evil, or to explain it away in psychological or sociological terms. But evil ...

    <p>I suppose it is commonplace to say it, but it's true: There is no such thing as time. The past is gone and no longer exists, the future is an assumption that has not yet come, all you have is the moment--this one--but it too has passed . . . just now. The moment we are having is an awfully good one, though. History has handed us one of the easiest rides in all the story of man. It has handed us a wave of wealth so broad and deep that it would be almost disorienting if we thought about it a lot, which we don't.</p>

    Can a still photo be taken from the Al Gore Video shown at the convention last evening? Any link to see this video? Ted Koppel reran part of the video - Tipper's self portrait as a nude when she was pregnant. If that is what I saw, this is pre-Demi. Inroads with the hollywood crowd!
