“The Chosen People” and “The Promised Land”

The Hebrews (or Israelites or Jews) were the first nation or ethnic group in human history to become monotheists. There are many factors about the Jews which are unique, but that is one of the most important. How and when did they become monotheists? It is impossible to verify that with any certainty. Many scholars claim that Abraham, inspired by God, became the first monotheist. Other scholars say Abraham believed in only one God for himself, while not denying the existence of other gods. To complicate matters, still other scholars deny that Abraham or any of the other ancient Hebrew patriarchs even existed.

A Serendipitous Sojourn with Ronald Reagan

An 874-page biography of Ronald Reagan is something I normally would not purchase, especially when its list price is $35.00.

Now death has been scientifically held in abeyance by an ever more resourceful medical bag of tricks. Often it mercilessly continues mere existence when active life has long since vanished. In terms of dollars spent and increasing human suffering, death has been rendered inhumanely slow and terrible for countless people.

Ruminations of an Old New Paper Boy

In the nearly seventy years that have passed since I was a paper boy, the newspaper business has changed dramatically. In medium-sized cities, like Madison, there used to be at least two competing newspapers, a morning one and an afternoon one. In large cities there were three or more competing papers. Now, in nearly every community large enough to sustain a daily newspaper, there is only one paper, which is half the size it used to be. It also has well less than half the number of subscribers it used to have. Perhaps there might be another small struggling competitor on life support.
