Mayapples can add contrast to a woodland garden (09/24/08)

Review: Ambitious 'Anna' never hits targets (09/24/08)
In Spike Lee's long and eclectic career, "Miracle at St. Anna" is easily his most technically ambitious film. After acclaimed character dramas ("Malcolm X," "Do the Right Thing"), some ill-fated comedies ("Bamboozled," "She Hate Me") and even a documentary or two ("4 Little Girls"), Lee takes on a big, old-fashioned war picture. It's hard not to appreciate the fact that, after a quarter-century of making movies, he's chosen this time to leap so boldly away from his comfort zone...

Looking for - but not finding - the answers (09/24/08)
I doubt there are any among us who can truly explain to the man on the street the full details of the looming financial crisis. And that's somewhat frightening since this economic tsunami will somehow affect all of our lives. When Americans feel the pain at the gas pump, we at least have some inkling of why these prices have spiraled. ...

Joke at fair was inappropriate (09/24/08)
To the editor: For many years I've enjoyed going to the East Perry Community Fair in Altenburg, Mo. The authentic rural atmosphere is a nice contrast with the larger, more commercialized SEMO District Fair.

Tough times merit tough action (09/24/08)

Blasphemy and insult to Christians (09/24/08)
To the editor: In a recent Speak Out comment, someone referred to Jesus Christ as a "community organizer." As believers in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we feel that it is an insult to Christians and blasphemy to speak of Jesus Christ as simply a "community organizer."...
