You've been framed

I recently sat down with two of my children and introduced them to a window from my childhood. We turned on the DVD player and watched some old Warner Brother's "Looney Tunes" cartoons. With all that is on today, I miss the simple, good, clean fun that these shorts offered. I also laughed because the episodes we were watching were complete. The last time I saw them on television, they were edited … for violence!

According to the group's Web site, it was the largest single act of civil disobedience in the name of global warming awareness in history. More than 2,000 people managed to clog the entrances to the Capitol Power Plant for about four hours. The irony? Their protest was blanketed by nearly half a foot of snow, compliments of an early March storm that covered the entire Northeastern United States. No one was arrested. Perhaps the D.C. police decided it was too cold to bother ...

Love, much like justice, is blind

If we look at some of our state seals and judicial buildings, we see a figure of a woman with a set of scales, her eyes blinded. This symbol is supposed to remind us that justice is blind, balanced and equal. However, I want you to look at this in a different light. Let's look at the blinded woman as love.

First, we can have new and different life, but also, after we die, we can go to a new and exciting place (heaven). The Easter holy day has passed, but the effect of the actual event lives on through those who have chosen to follow Jesus.
