Dr. James L. Snyder   Like many people, I try planning and arranging my week so I can accomplish as much as possible. For example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage on Monday morning hands me her “honey-do-list” to complete by the end of the week. When she hands it to me, I smile and underneath that list I have concealed from her my “to-do-list.” It is not that I ignore her list… well, maybe I do. But, I don’t do it on purpose… well, maybe I do. I have a priority with my “to-do-list” and most times forget...

‘You can't win like that’
5/17/2019 12:14:44 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   “I can’t do a lot of the extra stuff that I would like to do for my kids or with my kids because I just can’t afford to. No vacations. There’s not too much going to the movies or little outings. Even getting school uniforms together is expensive. Sometimes they have to wear stuff from last year. I have a lot of guilt because I can’t provide for them the way that I want to.” The Children’s Defense Fund recently released our latest report on Ending Child Poverty Now once again showing just how much poverty...

'Avengers: Endgame' obliterates records with $1.2B opening
5/3/2019 8:19:19 AM

By Jake Coyle   NEW YORK (AP)—The universe belongs to Marvel. “Avengers: Endgame” shattered the record for biggest opening weekend with an estimated $350 million in ticket sales domestically and $1.2 billion globally, reaching a new pinnacle in the blockbuster era that the comic-book studio has come to dominate. The “Avengers” finale far exceeded even its own gargantuan expectations, according to studio estimates Sunday. The movie had been forecast to open between $260 million and $300 million in U.S. and Canadian theaters, but moviegoers...

Aliyah Royale undaunted by fast pace of success
5/3/2019 8:17:53 AM

LOS ANGELES (AP)—Aliyah Royale imagined her TV series debut might be a comedy. Instead, she plunged into an emotionally demanding role in a police-shooting drama that brought the 19-year-old into the daunting orbit of a veteran star and heavyweight producers. Whatever the challenges, Royale said she felt compelled to be part of “The Red Line,” which details the devastating effect an unarmed African-American doctor's killing has on his husband, played by Noah Wyle of “ER” and “The Librarians” fame, their adopted daughter Jira (Royale) and...

5/3/2019 8:12:11 AM

By Staff Reports   SACRAMENTO—The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today urged Californians to make sure they are protected against measles.

This is an increase of 15 cases from last week, and compares with 11 cases at this time in 2018. Of the 2019 cases, 14 cases were in international travelers, 22 cases were due to spread from travelers to persons in California, and 2 cases are of unknown...

Lazy does have its advantages
5/3/2019 8:01:25 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   As a young boy, my father tried drilling into my brain that laziness was not acceptable in his house. If I wanted to be lazy, I had to go outside. He provided a wonderful role model for me because if my father was anything, he was not lazy. He tried to encourage me not to be lazy. Laziness, according to him, was an attack on common decency and energy. After all these years, I have tried to live up to his standard. And yet, I must confess that I have found that laziness may have an advantage or two. I’m leaning towards the two. It was my...

An open letter to Bruce Springsteen
4/26/2019 12:07:12 PM

By Pete Brooks   Dear Bruce, On social media recently, I not-very-casually remarked that I thought you would make an excellent President. To my great surprise, a guy who’s long-since unfriended me because of his enthusiasm for the current administration and to whom I haven’t spoken since, replied, “I’d vote for Mr. Springsteen.” Really. Really? This old friend isn’t even a fan of Springsteen’s music; his musical taste remains mired in 80s hair-metal and/or the au courant equivalent. I haven’t heard “boo” from...

Prayers for a Season of Renewal
4/26/2019 12:04:04 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   We are living through trying times as a nation when many are longing for justice. Sometimes it seems, in the words of poet James Russell Lowell, we are watching “Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne.” But hope comes every day from the groundswell of people still refusing to accept the forces of hatred, division, greed, and corruption and instead standing up to say we are better than this. The arc of the moral universe is long but it still bends towards justice. The Passover and Easter holidays are times of joyous...

A cookie isn’t a cookie unless you can sneak it
4/26/2019 11:45:40 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I enjoy one glorious connection; she loves to bake and I love to eat what she bakes. I did not marry her because of her baking skills because I did not know she had them at the time. I did know her mother was a wonderful cook and I assumed there might be some gene transferred to her daughter. If the truth were known, she loves to bake as much as I love to eat. Whenever there is a function in the church, she is always baking, especially cookies. Her cookies are the best I have ever eaten, and believe me, I...

The only reason we know about mass surveillance by the government is because of journalists who relied on informants leaking classified information at great personal risk
4/18/2019 5:07:35 PM

By Robert Romano   When you get right down to it, the only reason the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was ever adopted in 1978 in the first place was after disclosures by reporter Seymour Hersh in the New York Times on Dec. 22, 1974 of a highly classified domestic spying operation. The report, entitled, “Huge C.I.A. operation reported in U.S. against antiwar forces, other dissidents in Nixon years,” uncovered surveillance on U.S. soil of antiwar protesters, members of Congress and others. Hersh relied on informants disclosing the classified program...
