Opinion Column: If you quit
This column is about something I've thought about doing before and that's just saying the heck with it. Some of you might say it a bit differently. When I was a pastor I would get so sick and tired of the same old people whining and complaining about the same old stuff that never...

The Flu Bug - Don't touch porn stars, celebrities or politicians
Where have people's hands been? When you shake hands with someone at church, the grocery store or a restaurant what kind of germs are they carrying? I once shook hands with Hillary Clinton and my wife told me to immediately go and wash my hands. She reminded me that her hands had...
