Their view: Graham: A man who lived a Christian life

On a cool Tuesday night in October 1958, the Rev. Billy Graham walked onto a stage at the Charlotte Coliseum for the 26th sermon of a five-week Charlotte crusade. “Tonight,” he began, “I want to talk on how to live the Christian life.” More than 13,000 people had jammed the arena to see the young […]

Their view: Pa. is now key to a Democratic House

Democrats took a big step closer to their goal of winning control of the U.S. House this year, thanks to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. On Monday, the court, which had earlier ruled that the current congressional district lines in the state unfairly gave Republicans an overwhelming advantage, redrew the boundaries in a way that it […]

Their view: Why Facebook is afraid of Mueller

Who is afraid of special counsel Robert Mueller? President Donald Trump is afraid. So are those who worked on his campaign. But they are not alone. Over the weekend, Rob Goldman made it clear that some of America’s biggest social media companies are scared of Mueller, too. Goldman is Facebook’s vice president for advertising, and […]

Their view: Where we can do something about guns

“Thoughts and prayers,” “thoughts and prayers,” America’s go-to mantra as bodies are carted away from the scenes of mass shootings. The words were invoked after the massacres at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, and Texas’s First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, and the Pulse nightclubin Orlando, Florida, and the Las Vegas outdoor Route 91 […]

Their view: February is time to focus on low vision

Do you know what low vision is? Do you know if you have low vision? Five years ago, before I became involved with Northeast Sight Services, I couldn’t tell you. Do you know how many people have low vision? Here are some eye-opening statistics: right now, 4.2 million Americans ages 40 and up have low […]

Their view: Plenty of room left on this bandwagon

There is plenty of room on the bandwagon! Many years ago, I got a chance to spend a little time and had a few conversations with Andy Reid, the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles at the time. Coach Reid’s humility and genuine kindness caught me by surprise, and I instantly became a fan. Ever […]

Their view: A Florida high school massacre and guns: A requiem for sanity

Seventeen dead in a high school. South Florida. A former student, 19. Armed to the teeth. A semi-automatic AR-15 rifle. Made to kill. Police officers running to the school, machine guns drawn. A mother texting her son to turn off his phone’s ringer so the killer with the rifle won’t hear it and find him. […]

Their view: Olympic Games do not make sense

Since 1976, the Olympic Games have been profitable for eight host cities. Nevertheless, as the 2018 Winter Games begin, questions remain about whether these games will be profitable for South Korea. The country converted a rural ski area into an international winter hub for sports. While the new stadium cost about $100 million, South Korea’s […]

Their view: U.S. banks still need a nudge to be colorblind

More than 40 years ago, Congress adopted the Community Reinvestment Act to ensure that banks would serve everyone in the areas where they do business, regardless of race or class. Now, the Trump administration is considering how it might reform this long-controversial law. There’s reason for concern about the administration’s intentions. Done right, though, an […]

Your view: Too much hate aimed at our president

While President Trump was delivering his State of the Union address, I could not help noticing the sour demeanor Nancy Pelosi was displaying. I thought that perhaps she had accidentally swallowed a horsefly. This is the same negative Nancy who referred to Trump’s tax cuts as Armageddon and used the standard Democratic nonsense that the […]
