Cut parents a little slack in public

Now that I'm a parent, I'm much more willing to cut other moms and dads slack when their children misbehave or become upset in public. As an impatient 20-something, I used to get annoyed when a crying baby drowned out the conversation my husband and I were trying to have over dinner in a restaurant. In grocery stores, I'd roll my eyes in disbelief as a harried mom tried to coax her tantrum-throwing toddler back to a relatively calm state. In malls, I was quick to judge dads who attempted to placate exhausted, teary little ones with ...

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:

If at first you don’t secede, why try again?

In case you have been busy doing mundane stuff like eking out a living, you may have missed the news that there is a petition going around that would allow Georgia to secede from the union.

Deal has right to say ‘no’ to exchanges

State-based health-insurance exchanges are to play a key role in transforming the nation's health-care and insurance industries under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. The exchanges are designed to serve as markets for individuals and small businesses to shop for private insurance coverage under greatly enlarged federal regulations.

Self-sufficiency message shouldn’t thwart efforts to refine new energy

The headline on the report from the International Energy Agency proclaimed that the United States would be, by 2017, the world's top oil producer, stepping ahead of Saudi Arabia.

Why is that?

Counting siblings as well as blessings

One of the things I'm most thankful for is growing up in a family that gave thanks. Three times a day, at every meal, my father said this blessing: Heavenly Father, pardon our sins, and give us hearts to be thankful for this and all our blessings. Amen.

Republican party can — and must —work to change with the times

The election victory by President Barack Obama over Republican challenger Mitt Romney ends hopes for now of putting the country back on a more moderate course after four years spent veering hard left. And it leaves Republicans and conservatives here and elsewhere facing tough choices.
