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).

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.

Cushman: Lessons from Lincoln, King

My favorite place in Washington is the Lincoln Memorial. Its grand size, pivotal location and sweeping view of our capital city are a backdrop for the inspirational addresses inscribed on its walls. Lincoln's second inaugural address and his Gettysburg Address are there for all visitors to read.
