No one is guaranteed a tomorrow, but expectations run pretty high for happy days in the here and now. Americans consider first-rate health care a right tucked somewhere in the Constitution, between baseball and free hot dogs. The lengthy struggle over the proper role of government in facilitating access to modern medicine — including the grinding Obamacare tug-of-war — has reached an exhausting stalemate. With voters soon to pass judgment on the well-being of the nation, legislators at every level would be advised to get on with devising a health care system that Americans can live with. The key could be loosening the bureaucratic rules and enabling states to do what they were meant to do.
  • EDITORIAL/The immaculate election
    This sounds elemental, as it ought to be. Every legitimate voter — from new immigrant to descendant of the Mayflower voyager — is endowed with exactly the same electoral value, one vote and each voter entitled to cast it only once.

Then cries and shrieks split the morning-after calm, pleading that the tally is unfinished, incorrect, illegitimate.

  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Isaiah 66:2
    Last week we saw Moses implementing a governmental structure for the people of Israel. He acted in response to some good advice from his father-in-law Jethro. The heart of the structure was for Moses to focus on teaching the people the Word of the Lord and choose men who feared God to be helpers in judging and leading the people.
  • Did former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg just take a page out of the playbook of Sen. Ed Muskie from half a century ago?
  • It’s appropriate that the U.N. special rapporteur devoted to adequate housing has visited encampments in Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Mumbai — and San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley.
  • Mr. F.L. Grubbs, local insurance agent and manager of the Philadelphia Insurance Agency, received a telegram announcing that he was the winner of a trip to the Worlds Fair in New York. Mr. Grubbs won one of the trips offered by the United States Fidelity and Guaranty Col. for having written the most new business in an 8 weeks contest on surety, burglary, robbery, plate glass, and all casualty lines. 
  • In our passage we see Jethro, Moses father-in-law, giving him some much needed advice. In the previous passage we saw the conversion of Jethro to the one true living God, after Moses recounted all the Lord had done in bringing Israel out of Egypt.
