Spring conference like old camp meeting

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!

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.
