This second batch of Sidney Awards, given for some of the year's best long-form essays, congregate, coincidentally, around a theme: the excessive individualism of American society, and the ways human beings try to create community for good or ill.
  • Driving down the picturesque Main Street of Lucedale, Miss., you immediately get a sense of incredible stories emanating from this tiny town in Southeast Mississippi.
  • In the blink of an eye, we’ve gone from opening combat jobs to women to Republican presidential candidates endorsing registering women for a draft.
  • FEB. 7, 1936

    Philadelphia school will not be affected by the action of county schools throughout the state, relative to the matter of proposed apposing after six months term where additional funds are provided. 

    Philadelphia schools are operated under the Philadelphia Separate School District, drawing their support funds from the city and district taxes.
  • We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.

                    — 2 Thessalonians 1 ESV
  • We come this week to the conclusion of this wondrous Psalm. Verse 19 speaks of the sovereignty of God over all: “The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.” This is of particular interest to the believer because God has entered into a covenant with them (verse 18) and calls them his own.
  • My son John and I recently attended a packed book signing at Millsaps recital hall. In A Different Key: The Story of Autism is written by two accomplished journalists, John Donvan and Caren Zucker. At 650 pages, it is by far the most comprehensive popular book on autism.
  • Donald Trump was inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2013. He’d been involved with professional wrestling for more than a quarter-century. At first his interest was on the business side, because so many of the events were held at his hotels. But then he got involved in the story lines, appearing in the ring as an actual character.
  • We live in the age of working-class discontent, which, if it wasn’t obvious before, has been made plain by the passions roiling 2016 presidential politics.
  • But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him               — 1 Corinthians 2:9 ESV
  • God often compares man in his sinful, fallen state to the grass or flowers of the field. The comparison we find in verses 15-16 is to point out how short-lived and futile man’s life is: “As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.”
