11/25/2020 9:51:19 PM

By Ashraf Khalil   WASHINGTON (AP)—After a weekend with dozens of arrests and scattered clashes between supporters and opponents of President Donald Trump, both sides took to social media to accuse the other of instigating violence. Meanwhile, a long-standing D.C. bar stands in danger of losing its liquor license after becoming a haven for Trump supporters who refused to follow local COVID-19 restrictions. All told, 21 people were arrested, including one juvenile, for charges that included disorderly conduct, inciting violence and assault. The violence took place...

11/25/2020 9:41:36 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, I know there will be a small cost-of-living increase in Social Security benefits next year but what about Medicare?

But if you’re a high earner, you’ll pay more. Here’s what you...

Words to live by

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   I recently received a note from my dear and evergreen friend Maria Nhambu with wise counsel that has circulated for many years under titles like “The Balance Sheet of Life” and “Things We Should All Know.” In a world where so much is uncertain and confusing this message is timeless and includes tenets of all the great faiths that help bind us together as human beings:   The most destructive habit: Worry. The greatest joy: Giving. The greatest loss: Loss of...

By Michelle Liu   COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)—In his first public briefing on the coronavirus pandemic in more than two months, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster on Thursday doubled down on his pledge to not impose new restrictions to curb COVID-19.

Being nice does have its rewards
11/25/2020 9:32:58 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   It was one of those weeks. It seems that every week of mine is "one of those weeks." Just when I think everything was looking fine, I discovered I was looking in the wrong direction. I should know better than thinking. Several problems developed with my vehicle, and I had to take it to the garage. Fortunately, when I took it in, it wasn't as serious as I thought it would be. Of course, I was happy about that, and as I drove my vehicle home, I sang one of my happy songs. The next day, the vehicle had the issue again. I guess he heard...

‘Exactly what do you mean when you say “more perfect”…?’
11/12/2020 7:34:31 PM

By L Ron Brooks   THE HEARTLAND—I ran down to Target on Saturday; some idiot had brought home 1-ply TP from a previous errand run and found himself unexpectedly preparing to receive 2-ply houseguests. And I pulled into the parking lot and saw something I hadn’t seen since I don’t reckon I can recall: Cars! As far as I could see. I found a place several rows farther away than I’d been accustomed to sliding into over the last six months. Rounding the corner of the store; sure enough, the other lot was jammed, too. I went into the store, thinking it...

Honoring Rev. C.T. Vivian’s Legacy
11/5/2020 8:00:41 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   My much beloved friend Rev. C.T. Vivian was a leader in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), a confidant of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a role model for so many of us in the 1960s era of civil rights activism, and a mighty and indispensable long haul moral warrior for justice. He was also a treasured personal friend known for being unfailingly gracious, generous, warm, and loving. I keep a photo in my home office of C.T. with my whole family taken when my husband Peter and I took our children and...

Things have a way of catching up with me
11/5/2020 7:55:38 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—I have learned in my life, and probably just one thing: things have a way of catching up with me. I can't get away with anything. It's not that I don't try. There were a few times when I've come pretty close to getting away with something, but it didn't turn out the way I hoped. One example stands out. Last year someone hacked into the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage’s bank account and purchased a case of wine for around $700. It took her a few days to see this in her bank account. When she saw it,...
