Some reflections on MLK - Billy Corriher

Having been born 13 years after the assassination of Martin Luther King, I know I'll never fully understand the magnitude of his impact on our country.

Driving is driving me crazy - Rob Felt

Our government's system for granting the privilege of driving to citizens is a bloated and inefficient mess. It would take a team of excavators countless years to remove the puss that festers in the boil of our DMV, traffic courts and insurance regulators.

Failing at simple arithmetic - R.H. Joseph

Is it any wonder American students lag behind young people throughout much of the industrialized world in science and mathematics? Their parents are unable to put 2 and 2 together.

Our candidate will get your wash cleaner - Bob Paslay

I was driving down the road the other day and on the radio comes this commercial for this super-duper miracle diet plan.

It seems the big Hollywood studios are cracking down and have done everything short of hiring Tom Ridge, director of Homeland Security, as their official adviser. Studios are now able to track film prints to specific theaters and pinpoint where this great film robbery is taking place. I applaud Hollywood's efforts, and not because I love the suits and neckties that run the studios, but because I respect the art form and its intended form of exhibition.
