Paul Strickland: Democrats are at it again

Well, our friends the Democrats are at it again.

Past pacifists are today’s heroes

The other day I bumped into a man at a social event who said he read my articles in The Signal. I made the mistake of thinking that because he read my stuff, he agreed with my essential position. Wrong! I don't recall what brought it on, but the man was adamant we needed to flatten Iran, leaving it a desolate area devoid of human life.

Steve Lunetta: Shame on Miss USA pageant

I don't watch beauty pageants. My lack of interest does not stem from some misguided belief that pageants somehow degrade women (we're putting them on a pedestal, for heaven's sake!). Its just that they bore me.

Tim Myers: Cheers and jeers for the city's plan

My apologies to the "B" and "C" list local Republicans now staffing a tea party near you, but your "A" list brethren who made it a point to stay as far away as possible from the anti-Obama April 15 party plan to ask for and lay their hands on, as much of the filthy and evil stimulus money as they can.

David Hegg: We don’t have to think alike

In every ordered and civilized society the rule of law plays an essential role. Given that human nature is too often selfish and sometimes even cruel, laws are enacted to declare the boundaries between right and wrong. Laws form the lens through which society views the actions of those individuals who choose to live in the group.

David Hegg: Toward ethical friendship

Someone has rightly said that a true friend is one who walks in when everyone else is walking out. In most areas of life, tragedy and trial bring truth to the surface.

When it comes to friendships, hard times bring out the reality of the relationship.
