It’s a Mexican standoff over a Mexican wall. More than a fortnight into the partial government shutdown, neither side was willing to budge. The longest government shutdown in history isn’t likely to be surpassed for a long time.
  • “Stop the ENDLESS WARS!” implored President Donald Trump in a Sunday night tweet.
  • LOWRY/FBI tramples our political order
    The FBI took it upon itself to determine whether the president of the United States is a threat to national security.
  • Miss Pauline Henley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.W. Henley of Philadelphia, has been selected “Miss Philadelphia High School” by the student body of the school.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Psalm 90
    Psalm 90 is the oldest psalm in the Bible. It was written by Moses, who lived around 1400 B.C.  Moses also wrote the first 5 books of the Bible, and here we have a prayer of Moses that serves to teach us the sobering reality of the world we live in and the wisdom we need in view of it.
  • EDITORIAL/Romney for something
    Mitt Romney is nothing if not flexible, and he usually bends a little to the left. He has been in the public eye for decades, but he has served only four years in an elective office, as governor of Massachusetts. 
  • Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s House has more women, persons of color and LGBT members than any House in history — and fewer white males
  • LOWRY/Millennial Socialism 101

  • The selection of Judge T.C. Kimbrough, Dean of the School of Law at University of Mississippi, as a member of the Executive Committee of the Association of American åLaw Schools indicates that Ole Miss Legal School has met with the highest favor of the national organization. Judge Kimbrough, who has served as Dean of the school since 1921, is one of five Executive Committeemen named by the association, composed of the 89 law schools in the United Staes that have met requirements set by the group. 
  • Christians can get discouraged. Here we read the psalmist in discouragement directing himself to look away from himself to praise God, and the hope of salvation God gives to him: “Why are you downcast, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.” So let’s look at how to use your faith in Christ when discouraged.
  • If Democrats are optimistic as 2019 begins, it is understandable.
