About Faith: Hide and seek

Once when I was a very young boy, I created a big stir in my neighborhood by going missing. Apparently, I was being loosely supervised by the older children as they played hide-and-seek around the yard. Of course, I was not as good at hiding, and my attention span not as long. I soon grew tired, and it being close to my nap time anyway, I went inside and crawled under my covers.

As my older siblings and their friends emerged from their hiding places, they realized I was not among them, and a search ensued. No luck. They looked ...

Hope for back pain sufferers

The cytokine molecule interleukin-17 is known to cause chronic inflammation in autoimmune disorders, as we all know (right!). But what we didn't know, and what researchers at Duke University Medical Center are finding out, is that this immune cell is likely to be involved in low back pain associated with herniated discs. Results of their research were published online in the July edition of "Arthritis and Rheumatism."

The Duke research supports a growing theory that an immune response plays a big role in disc disease. This is a hopeful finding that may lead to new, therapeutic techniques that target ...

Making the Internet “safe for wiretappers”

President Obama wants to make the Internet "safe for wiretappers." To do so would require re-designing the Internet and be worse for all of us.

By design, the Internet doesn't work like a telephone. If you write a letter and tear it into three pieces and send one piece down Floyd Street, another down Washington Street and one down Highway 278, that is how the Internet sends messages. When your message arrives, all the pieces are put together. Just like the Internet.

Letters to the Editor: Covington, not Hollywood

Dear Editor: The more I think about Mr. Bob Furnad's letter about filming in Covington, the more I agree with him.

These movie makers do not purchase anything local. They do have their own generators for electricity (that keep the neighbors up all night with noise and lights). They bring in their food from somewhere else and they do not lodge in Covington.

Grace Notes: The comfort of Revelation

What do you think of when you think of the book of Revelation? Try describing it in one word. I asked that question to begin our new Bible study series on that last book of the Bible last week. And you can probably guess some of the answers I got: "Scary"... "Confusing"... "Destruction"... "Difficult." Then one person said - "Comforting."

That answer is almost shocking compared to all the other ones, but when you think about why the book was written, why God gave us this record of this vision, "comforting" is right on the money.
