Since the fall of communism in the Former Soviet Union, its long shadow cast on the West has seemed to fad away like a bad memory. Millions of people in Eastern Europe and the former fifteen Soviet republics welcome the change to Democracy, no matter how much some may miss the strict law and order of Totalitarian states. No system of government functions perfectly all the time. In America the foibles of local, regional, and national political leaders give newspapers an endless supply of...

Studies show that children who receive an education in music perform better in math and science than those who do not. That being said, I don't think rock-and-roll was the genre of music that researchers had in mind. The School of Rock starring Jack Black (Orange County), however, is a movie that begs to differ.

In the movie, Dewey Finn (Black) is a hard-core guitarist and rock fan who has been kicked out of his band thanks to his five-minute solos and extreme need for creative control...

Of course, the medical care they offered came with a hearty dose of pagan Greek rituals, like walking through the tunnel of the Spring of Life hoping to have a dream...

Letter to the Editor,

I know of a very decent, honest, hard working young man (he is also an Eagle Scout) who was married with three children and living in Ossian, Indiana. Before he went to work, he gave his three children their baths. His wife was already at work.
