  • LOWRY/The party of bad faith?
    Wednesday, July 19, 2017 6:00 PM
    If the Republican attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare ultimately fails, it will be a lesson in the wages of political bad faith.

      The current path of the Senate bill has plenty of obstacles, including the sheer inertia of the Obamacare status quo and the fact that no one has made the public case for the Republican legislation. But the effort also suffers from a mismatch between the longtime public posture o

  • BROOKS/Getting radical about inequality
    Wednesday, July 19, 2017 6:00 PM
    I’m not in the habit of recommending left-wing French intellectuals, but I’m beginning to think that Pierre Bourdieu is helpful reading in the age of Donald Trump. He was born in 1930, the son of a small-town postal worker. By the time he died in 2002, he had become perhaps the world’s most influential sociologist within the academy, and largely unknown outside of it.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 3:1-6
    Wednesday, July 19, 2017 6:00 PM
    Our text this week is one of the most famous narratives in the Bible; Moses and the burning bush.  Israel is in Egypt in the midst of great suffering.  It has been 40 years since Moses left Egypt. Moses is tending sheep on the far side of the desert (a remote place). He is tending the sheep of his father-in-law. He was once prince of Egypt, now he doesn’t even own his own sheep. He has to range to lonely places just to find pasture for them.

    There has been a lot of rain in recent weeks, and one wonders what might happen if a bad storm should hit Saturday morning during the 38th annual Heart o’ Dixie triathlon.

    “There have been some races in the past where it rained but most of the time it is just hot,” said race director B.J. Morrow. “That’s what we are expecting this Saturday.

    The Leake Academy Lady Rebels may be a young team as they enter the 2017 fast-pitch softball season.

    To someone who does not compete in triathlons, marathons and other similar road races, it’s hard to imagine the people who will be participating in the 38th Heart o’ Dixie on July 22 can be having very much fun.
