Miracles indeed

The interview with Dr. Sylvester McRae in the April 23 edition of the L-E brought back memories to when I first saw a delivery as a medical student at Emory University. It was as Dr. McRae said, birth "still a miracle, and it always will be."

Tactical ‘madness’

In all the fear hype that the press has been spewing lately, there has been one unasked question: Why is North Korea pursuing the development of an ICBM capable of carrying a nuclear warhead? Based on some of the headlines, one might think it is because Kim Jong-un is a madman intent on destroying the U.S.

Not how it works

Another Sound Off! comment causes me to offer enlightenment to someone who apparently slept during his civics class coverage of the Constitution's separation of powers.

Antisemitism is sheer idiocy

One of the hallmarks of humans is our ability to think. Our brains are us. To witness the anti-Jewish hatred lately saddens me not only because it is so mean spirited but also because it is so very “un-thinking.” By that I mean discriminating against Jews is like cutting off part of your own anatomy. It’s just plain stupid.

Doesn’t need fixing

The Muscogee County school board will soon vote on a a major shake-up of its custodial staff. Custodial work is now being performed by a combination of MCSD employees and four teams of contractors. The proposal would allow for consolidation to one contracted group (the good part of the idea) and transferring elementary school custodians to the middle and high schools (the terrible part of the idea).

Science vs. faith a needless conflict

The conflict between science and religion is senseless. It is based on fears and misunderstanding rather than on facts and moral wisdom. Despite the strong public interest in this topic, some people find it troubling when viewed from a religious perspective.
