Feeling a little ‘scent’-imental

We find powerful scents all around us, don't we? Go to the mall, and you can almost see the pink clouds rising from the perfume counter. Visit the grocery store, and you'll be bombarded with scented detergents and shampoos and soaps. Sit in any meeting, and you'll whiff dozens of perfumes and aftershaves, if you're lucky. Toilet water, colognes, deodorants, detergents - it's a treasure trove for the nose, everywhere we go.

Book looks at ‘The Wealth Choice’

Cushman: Obama follows from behind

Out of the corner of my eye, as I was passing a television, I saw a plane fly into a building. The sound was not on, and I thought, it must be a small plane and a small building. An errant pilot or a plane with failing equipment apparently had crashed when it intended to land.

Yarbrough: No interest in running

It is flattering to have readers tell me I should run for public office. There are also an equal number of adoring fans who say I should stick my head in a bucket of tar. But that is a topic for another day.

Massie: Readers don' know history

If liberals and the despitefully misguided and uninformed were as smart as they like to think they are, they would have a better way of showing it. One avenue of showing it would be to have cogent, reasoned debate. But cogent, reasoned debate is not reflexively calling anything they do not like and/or have not heard before a lie; it's not blaming George Bush, for everything including the seven-year locusts; and it isn't blaming white people and slavery for problems black people may have (real or perceived).

What is 'freedom of association'?

Here's a question: What is the true test of one's commitment to freedom of expression? Is it when one permits others to express ideas with which he agrees? Or is it when he permits others to express ideas he finds deeply offensive?

The trouble with red lines in the sand

Good parents eventually learn that lines in the sand are useful only if enforced. Inevitably, red lines will be stepped on or, more often than not, jumped over. If the lines have no meaning, children will realize that their parents are full of bluster and either lack the ability or the determination to carry through with punishment.

Choices can make life simpler

Our friends had a wonderful home in the country nearby. Everyone loved to go there. The property dropped gracefully away from a pasture with road frontage down several descending levels until it reached its lowest point, another open pasture. Just where sky-scraping hardwoods grew that divided the property, front from back, their home was nestled. On their screened back porch, we would sit looking out into the treetops.
