A profound work by one of the 20th century’s most influential writers is making its stage debut in the Valley. The world premiere of C.S. Lewis’ “The Great Divorce” runs through Sunday, Dec. 22, at Herberger Theater Center in Phoenix.
“Did you see the photo of the president shaking hands with Castro? Oh, I meant the photo of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Fidel Castro. He put the five-finger grip on Mao Tse-tung, too. Their records on human rights are pretty well known, but somehow the Republicans have a bad case of memory loss about those photos. McCain slipped Muammar Gaddafi ‘five’ also, but he seems to have forgotten that while taking Pres. Obama to task for his greeting to Raul Castro.”
Thanksgiving hadn’t even come! But still, nearly a week ago, I could already say that I had lost my membership in the Holiday Kindness to Others Club.
Since he began his professional career on “Saturday Night Live” in 1990, the perpetually sarcastic David Spade has rarely left the small screen, appearing in shows like “Just Shoot Me!” “8 Simple Rules” and “Rules of Engagement.”
“People were complaining when they answered their phones because ‘Harry Mitchell’ popped up on the caller ID and it was Schweikert’s office. They were blaming Schweikert but they can really only blame their own stupidity. It popped up because they still have the name loaded in their phones under Harry Mitchell’s name. Delete the number from your phone and it will be fixed. Typical of Democrats, no personal responsibility.”
In 2006, I came up against a holiday deadline crunch, so I turned my column over to Turpy, the beloved 8-year-old golden retriever/chow mix who had turned up at our doorstep as a puppy.
“I wonder just how thick the lefts rose colored glasses have to be before they can finally see just how deceitful this administration is?”
Looking for a terrific book to read during your holiday travels? Pick up “How the West Really Lost God.” It’s an insightful look at the link between the decline of the family and Christian religions in the Western World; a social shift that has touched every one of us.
Half a century ago, Sid Davis was the first journalist to learn John Kennedy had died. Instead of breaking the biggest the biggest news story in the world, he waited because he wanted to make sure he was right. It is hard to image a journalist making the same choice nowadays amid our modern cacophony of inaccurate reporting, but perhaps Davis has something to teach us.
Thanksgiving is a once a year memorable reminder of the goodness of God in this nation. As we think of our history, the American custom of Thanksgiving transcends cultures and stands as a truly American tradition. While giving thanks to God for His provision, gratitude for survival arranged the first Thanksgiving of Plymouth Colony in the fall of 1621 for the Pilgrims’ families and their Indian friends to celebrate.
I am always dismayed by articles such as Mike McClellan’s commentary on public prayer.
At this time of year it’s quite natural for people to start thinking about the spiritual.
Pearl Jam has been quiet since wrapping up its "Backspacer" tour in 2010. But the grunge band, which rose through the Seattle scene and turned into a juggernaut courtesy of its pure arena-rock ambitions, began touring Oct. 11 in support of its latest album, "Lightning Bolt."
I like prayer. I often pray, at least once a day, likely more. Our family prays each day at dinner, as we have for generations. We’ve discussed prayer over the years, that prayer is at least as powerful for those who pray as for those who are the subjects of prayer, that prayer helps us cope with those difficult times and celebrate the beauty in our lives.
Long ago, Mary Lewis Riggs helped create an Arizona landmark. Today, Riggs, who turned 102 years old this summer, is considered somewhat of a Mesa landmark herself.
Who says that when our life is over that we’re forgotten, that our music dies?
Those who abhor public prayer are at it again. They are offended by reference to deity among other things.

Comic book movies are increasingly, like Sandra Bullock in "Gravity," lost in space.
Editor’s Note: As part of the Tribune’s sponsorship of the Higley Unified School District’s sixth-annual Veterans Day celebration, we are proud to present the text of Higley High School senior Morgan Getts’ upcoming speech at Friday’s event.
“No need to be sad Sen. McCain. People still remember your running for president and the elevator you had installed for your car. Also in the ready room of every US Military airbase I’m sure there is a poster of you in your flight suit with the inscription — ‘hey blank-blank these things are expensive, Don’t McCain your plane!’ ”
“I don’t get the ‘tea party.’ If this is such a bad country, why don’t they all move to Texas, secede from the union and be their own founding fathers of their new country? No taxes, no environmental controls, no costly safety mandates, no health insurance, no food inspection, etc. Glenn Beck is there to keep us all up to date on your progress. If all goes well, you have the Pastor Joel Osteen down in Houston to pen another book to confirm you are in God’s favor. If that happens, you win.”
Surprise, surprise: Obama’s ‘ObamaCare’ internet registration debacle was developed by a Canadian corporation, CGI Group. Our own countrymen weren’t even awarded the contract to develop the system. I know, “lowest bidder”. From what NBC reported, CGI developed the Canadian system and from what I’ve learned from reports about the Great White North’s system, I can appreciate why we’re in a fix. For a system this large and what it’s expected to do, it takes months, even years of working with the programmers and performing a multitude of benchmark tests. I’m not so sure the Obama administration even knows what benchmarking is. It helps develop a “fail-safe” system, drawing out the shortcomings. God only knows, if one is going to create a system of this magnitude it requires more effort than what a few politically appointed hacks can contribute. Yup, “We’ll get it up and running and then figure out the problems later.” What a way to run a business.
Oh, the “weeping and gnashing of teeth” going on in conservative circles and right-wing think tanks after their embarrassing loss of face during the recent installment of “right-wing conservatives Shutter the U.S. Government” Once Again!
“Oh my God! Armageddon is here, no one can access the Affordable Healthcare Act website. Life isn’t worth living. Only one thing left to do, turn off Fox News and call the 800 number.”
