Today's Opinions

  • The Infernal Wheel

    Many years ago I had a horrible, yet ridiculous encounter with a playground merry go round. I was somehow sucked beneath the thing and was trapped for the entire recess period. Even now I have absolutely no idea of what caused the phenomenon I encountered that fateful day. Maybe the spinning of the wheel triggered a vortex beneath that pulled me under? Stranger things have occurred. That or I have an uncanny ability to find myself in the most ludicrous predicaments imaginable.

  • Answers to interesting questions gargoyles ask

    The other day I got a letter from a Mark Gould of Southampton, New Jersey.
    He had just finished reading my book “Prayers God Always Answers” and he had some questions for me. He said, “I do like to question authors, more kindly now than in the past — once a gargoyle, not always one.”

  • New law targeting prescription drug abuse effective

    Earlier this year, when the General Assembly approved legislation designed to curb the state’s heroin epidemic, many called the law a national model because of the way it blended additional treatment, smart-on-crime measures and tougher penalties for traffickers.
    On Monday, we learned that another comprehensive law in this field, this one targeting prescription drug abuse, is making the significant difference that other legislators and I had hoped when we passed it in 2012.

  • Finding your place

    A few weeks ago, a caller to our Sound Off line opened up a can of worms by saying he or she has visited many churches and has concluded that the people who want to pay attention to the sermon sit up front and the people who want to gossip and talk about people sit in the back two rows.
    The caller asked, “Is that a tradition? It seems like every place I go and talk to people it’s the same problem everywhere.”

  • Four for Freedom

    Washington, DC has the bad news blues.  Whether it’s Congress passing bills that spend billions of dollars we don’t have, rogue Supreme Court justices ignoring the clear text of the Constitution, or yet another unelected executive branch agency bureaucrat issuing a “regulation” that punishes free enterprise, it often seems that victories for freedom and liberty are rare.

  • Water hazard

    I am able to swim, it’s just not pretty. I’m really not built for swimming. I have the most pathetic set of shoulders to ever grace a human; Therefore, no swimming muscles. Be that as it may, I have spent my share of summers floating in the water.
