Prognostication is a tough business, as anyone from Oracle of Delphi to Nostradamus to Nate Silver of the number crunching website “538” can tell you. We’re as hard pressed to predict the winner of next weekend’s NFL games as we are presidential elections that won’t occur until months from now. But as the Democratic presidential primaries begin in earnest following the Labor Day holiday, it seems that putative front-runner Joe Biden is something of a paper tiger.
  • “Iran has launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply,” declared Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
  • LOWRY/The anti-Kavanaugh campaigns
    The campaign against Brett Kavanaugh hasn’t required the formation of any super PACs. It hasn’t required the hiring of any dumpster-diving private detectives (so far as we know). It hasn’t even really required any elected Democratic officials.
  • Mississippi’s 4-H Club enrollment reached an all-time high of 61,954 in 1939. The 1939 compares with a total of 59,864 in 1938. There are 548 girls and 483 boys enrolled in the 4-H clubs of Neshoba County, a total of 1,031.
  • [ Walk in Love ] Therefore be imitators of God as dear children
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 4:2
    In this passage, the Apostle Paul gives us instruction for prayer: “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” Someone once ask C.S. Lewis, “Why pray if God knows all and is sovereign over all?” Lewis replied, “You might as well ask me why breathe, for prayer to the soul is as necessary as breathing for the body.”
  • Thursday, Sept. 14, looks to be a fateful day in the half-century-long political career of Joe Biden.
  • At least Bernie Sanders is an equal opportunity misanthrope. He doesn’t like rich people, and it turns out he doesn’t necessarily like poor people, either. 
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 3:22-4:1
    As we continue our study through Colossians, the section we are in concerns the application of the Christian faith to various relationships. Paul has discussed marriage, children and parents, and now he discusses the relationship between slaves and masters. 
  • Emmanuel Macron may not technically be a celebrity, but he tweets like one.
  • Miss Enez Darby, of Philadelphia, received the master of arts degree from George Peabody College for Teachers at the recent commencement exercises there. Approximately 500 students received degrees.
