Fine dining was really not difficult to find back in the ’30s and ’40s. Today it is almost impossible to find that type of restaurant.
TISCIONE: The straw dog
“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.” (John 4:23)
OPINION: Fixing Congress
These are hard times for Congress. Its approval ratings have seen a bump from their historic lows of a few months ago, but it’s a small one. Our representative democracy’s keystone political institution is widely derided as ineffective, unproductive, irrelevant, and sadly out of touch.
