The New York Times, and every other media outlet, is free to hire or fire whomever it likes. The members of the management team at the New York Times are free to do or say what they’d like. But they are not immune from criticism for their double standards.
  • Friday, deep into the 17th year of America’s longest war, Taliban forces overran Ghazni, a provincial capital that sits on the highway from Kabul to Kandahar.
  • It’s never a good idea to negotiate with a hostage-taker, but when it’s a NATO ally, there isn’t much choice.
  • Wilkes Davis of Jackson, newly elected state commander of the American Legion, is heading up preparations for Mississippi’s $25,000 advertising project in connection with the national convention of the American Legion in Los Angeles. Mr. Davis announces a 5,750- mile float caravan, a second caravan of five forty and eight locomotives, and the participation of five Mississippi bands selected in open competition at the recent state convention at Gulfport.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Psalm 34:1-10
    Ancient Christians had an expression to crystalize what genuine faith was. They called it taking the Lord to be your portion. By portion they meant the chief good, that which you esteem the most or set your heart upon. This portion is what you must have above all else.
  • On meeting with the EU’s Jean-Claude Juncker last month, Donald Trump tweeted: “Both the U.S. and the E.U. drop all Tariffs, Barriers and Subsidies! That would finally be Free Market and Fair Trade.”
  • The Massachusetts senator, who has made a career of unfairly maligning bankers and other alleged capitalist malefactors, is now smearing the criminal justice system, too.
  • The U.S. Bureau of Mines disclosed information which said it “confirmed” reports that Mexico had found a German market for American and British expropriated oil in Germany. Mexico, by executive order of President Cardenas, took over possession and operation of American and British oil wells in that country several months ago. The result was an accumulation of oil for which Mexico could find no export immediately.
  • For the Lord is our judge; the Lord is our lawgiver; the Lord is our king; he will save us.   
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/John 6:35-59
    The context of this rather lengthy passage is Jesus miraculously feeding the 5000 from 5 loaves of bread and two fish. Not surprisingly, the crowd of people recognizes Jesus as a prophet of God and they seek to find him the next day. Jesus however, challenges their motives for following him.
  • On July 19, the Knesset voted to change the nation’s Basic Law.
