Falling over fiscal cliff could be deadly

One of my favorite movie scenes is in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." Butch and Sundance are surrounded by their pursuers and have no other choice but to jump off of a steep cliff into a river far below. Their conversation goes like this:

Deal has right to say ‘no’ to exchanges

We are all to blame for church membership dip

A recent study from the Pew Forum on Religion and Life reveals that for the first time in our history, more people in the United States claim no religious affiliation than those who do.

It’s time to change the nation’s election process

The elections finally are over. The emails and calls have stopped. The dreadful television ads have disappeared. We no longer have to listen to politicians make promises that they likely never will keep. During all of the election madness, were you satisfied with the whole process?

Join fight to increase pancreatic cancer five-year survival rate

Editor, Over the past 30 years there has been a revolution in science and medicine, resulting in increased survival rates for many diseases but, unfortunately, pancreatic cancer has not benefited from these advances because, historically, there haven't been enough people who know about it. As a result, pancreatic cancer is the only cancer with a five-year survival rate in the single digits, at just 6 percent. Even more alarming is that the disease is expected to move from the fourth- to the second-leading cause of cancer death in the United States by 2020 - possibly as early as 2015. We ...
