Hospitable habit (06/13/10)
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing so some have entertained angels unawares. (Hebrews 13:2) Hospitality is a big word, used often in church settings but not exclusively there. Take away the suffix and you have hospital -- and everybody knows what that is. The etymology of both words takes us back to a root that means "guest." In many cultures of the past, treating a stranded wayfarer as an honored guest is part and parcel of normal behavior...
Bluegill plentiful and easy to catch (06/13/10)
The bluegill is a common North American freshwater fish.

Missouri cannot afford to delay health care reform (06/13/10)
By Dr. Stephen Radinsky As a retired radiologist, I will never forget the day when I had to tell a woman that her free mammogram, provided through a state initiative, had shown that she had breast cancer.

A constitutional basis for defense (06/13/10)
By Jim Talent Those who have not done so recently would benefit from studying what the U.S. Constitution says about the federal government's responsibility to provide for the common defense.

But they are not aware of the extent to which the document shows the Founders' concern for national security...

Oil disaster in the Gulf: These are the consequences of our greed for petroleum products (06/13/10)
When I was young a wise adult gave me this advice: "Be careful whom you point your finger at; you might find it pointing back at you." We are assessing blame for the BP oil disaster.

At this time there is no economically feasible alternative...
Speak Out 6/13/10 (06/13/10)
EVEN though the Missouri Arts Council received no appropriation from the General Assembly, a Southeast Missourian editorial cavalierly suggested that the council dip into and spend most of its $17.5 million trust fund, since art is "good for Missouri" and the fund will surely be replenished with tax money "down the road." I was so stunned by the editorial's theme I choked on my breakfast. ...
