We will never see them again. They were a cadre that is rapidly disappearing. But not long ago, priests from Ireland ran the Catholic Church in Arizona.

While traveling in Central America, I had the opportunity to worship at an international, interdenominational, English-speaking church. The congregation contained Africans, Italians, Spaniards, Latinos, Americans, and Asians. We sang old Irish hymns and modern, Australian worship choruses. The service was a mixture of Lutheran, Reformed, and Pentecostal elements. The welcome was given by a Canadian, a German read the Scripture lesson, and an American did the preaching. It was a wonderful, diverse experience, and for a little while I thought the kingdom of God had come.

When I first moved to the Valley of the Sun in 2000, the PBS TV channel, KAET, was a “powerhouse.” The best TV programming on local television. “MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour” gave the best (unbiased) analysis of the day’s news events. “Masterpiece Theatre” and “Masterpiece Mystery” were “must watch” week in and week out. Wonderful foreign films were shown that could be seen nowhere else on the Valley of the Sun’s TV channels. We viewers didn’t know it be we were seeing the “beginning of the end” for KAET.

The Team America song, “Pearl Harbor,” probably said it best when the lyrics asked, “Why does Michael Bay get to keep on making movies?” Unfortunately the answer is that the infamous director’s films continue to make a crap-ton of money, despite how god-awful bad most of them are; and when it comes to the amount of moola his latest flick, Transformers: Age of Extinction, is likely to make, I’m certain it will be no exception.

Marigold is among the most widely planted and, hence, mundane of flowers. Yet I enjoy them as an essential part of summer with their yolk-like blooms and pungent foliage.
NEW YORK — Times Square is a lot of things — a sensory-overload, horribly crowded, eye-popping and deeply exciting. One thing it has never seemed to be is a place to go for food.
