I don’t know if we are watching a reincarnation of New Harmony, Indiana, the Shakers, or reruns of “Friends” here, but something is going on. The difference between communal colonies of old seems to be that, rather than religion-centered, the WeWork concept is at best agnostic, at worst atheist.
  • Is WeWork a business concept, lifestyle or religion?

  • Maybe California has it right
    Friday, July 13, 2018 11:20 AM
    The point is this: We are two countries. There is a city component and a rural component. If we change the political boundaries to match, we just may have a better chance of living in peace and harmony.

  • What are our fundamental values?
    Friday, July 6, 2018 8:18 AM
    I am not responsible for nor should I be condemned for not agreeing with your values that lie beyond the fundamental values. Likewise, I should not expect any different treatment from you.

  • ‘The Real McCoys’ Doctrine
    Monday, June 25, 2018 2:43 PM
    What has happened to “Hollywood” in the last 61 years to turn it from writing valuable life lessons like this (and “The Real McCoys” dish these out at the rate of about four or five per episode) into the garbage it turns out today? It wouldn’t be just plain old money, would it? Should we listen to “Hollywood’s” moral lessons about anything?

  • From tariffs to immigration, Trump is really simple
    Tuesday, June 19, 2018 7:52 PM
    President Donald Trump has managed to rile up many corners of society lately, including some in Highland County who may even have voted for him. Nearly everything I see and read shows people are looking at him only from their own personal perspective, not the big picture. That’s understandable if you are seeing a sudden rise in newsprint prices or wonder where your soybean crop will be sold this fall and for what price.

  • The only constant is change

    The evening of June 14 found me high atop the Hampton Inn (seventh floor) at the corner of U.S. 41 and I-70 in beautiful Terre Haute, Ind. My view was south, looking toward Honey Creek Mall, or what is left of it.

  • Greed, Ten Commandments, socialism and the Widow’s Mite
    Friday, June 8, 2018 1:45 AM
    Socialism, totalitarianism and other such forms, including those found in the European Union, have continued to oppress the masses to this very day and keep them from reaching their full potential.

  • What are the politics of the 'fat cats?'
    Friday, June 1, 2018 8:38 AM
    What makes a person lean left or lean right? I don’t think it is money. I still think it is their willingness to believe the government is the solution to society’s problems balanced with their willingness to give up their freedoms in order to avail themselves of government solutions. The right-wing people I know are fiercely independent and want to stay that way no matter what. Those willing to let the government step into their lives do not seem to value independence so much.

  • Socialism is not necessarily related to Christianity
    Saturday, May 26, 2018 11:55 AM
    Jesus tells us, more so than in nearly any other area of the focus of his teachings, that our Christianity and our obedience to our government are distinct and unrelated. In no other area of life does Jesus offer such a separation or compartmentalization of our activities. Simply pray for our government leaders – no matter who they are.

  • Can Pete Rose finally get into the Hall of Fame?
    Wednesday, May 16, 2018 2:44 PM
    On May 14, the U.S. Supreme Court, by a vote of 6-3, struck down the federal law prohibiting sports gambling. Katie bar the door.
