Northwestern University researchers say that casual marijuana use is linked with brain abnormalities. Why didn’t they do this study before the drive to legalize pot?
Here’s what Michael Bloomberg thinks about his chances of getting into heaven.
Mr. Bloomberg was introspective as he spoke, and seemed both restless and wistful. When he sat down for the interview, it was a few days before his 50th college reunion. His mortality has started dawning on him, at 72. And he admitted he was a bit taken aback by how many of his former classmates had been appearing in the “in memoriam” pages of his school newsletter. But if he senses that he may not have as much time left as he would like, he has little doubt about what would await him at a Judgment Day. Pointing to his work on gun safety, obesity and smoking cessation, he said with a grin: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”
And they say Christians are always pushing their religion on the rest of us? A few prayers for Mr. Bloomberg are in order, I’d say.

We proclaim that our deceased loved ones who trusted Christ are in the hands of a loving Savior. This is central to biblical faith. Yet on this side of the Resurrection, memory also plays a central role in keeping hope alive. Remembering our loved ones who have died is part of our Christian understanding of hope.
As you write that painful check to the U.S. Treasury this year, keep in mind that there are more people receiving food stamps than the number of women working full time. Why do people who work more, pay more, while those who work less, get more? I understand that we sometimes need to extend a hand to hard-working people who require some temporary help, but this Obama economy has become a miserable way of life, both for taxpayers and the growing numbers who are for all intents and purposes permanently on the dole. If all these welfare recipients are not just sponging off people who work–and I grant that many aren’t–then we must indict the president and his party for this sorry economy.
Are you tired of being called a hypocrite by unbelievers? All I’ve ever said is that I’m a sinner saved by grace. At least we’re trying.
I’m sure there’s a good explanation. I just want to hear what it is.
