Holy Thursday's Watch Offers an Opportunity for Reflection and Prayer

Connectivity – a doublespeak word if there ever was one.

It is, in fact, dis-connectivity. Life through devices makes us not present in our immediate world and takes us outside of ourselves and into the world of entertainment, sports, social media, etc.

My favorite is the commercial for some streaming service where the guy says “Now you watch movies on your phone,” as if ...

Reflections on a Journey Back to the Old Country

Why would they all leave?

It’s the question to which I know the answer to, but still find it incomprehensible when I see the rugged beauty and enjoy the simple lifestyle of Southern Italy even for a too-short vacation. 

They left to find work. They left for the promise of America, and the belief that aspiration leads to ascension.

In the earliest days of Southern Italian ...

For Parents Like Me, Pot Legalization in New Jersey is a Dilemma

I like Gov. Phil Murphy, but he's making a liar out of me. Me and millions of parents. For a couple of generations now, mothers and fathers have been warning children about the dangers of pot smoking. Now the governor comes along and tells them there is no Santa Claus.

I’ve been warning my children about pot for 20 years. That’s not exaggeration. It started when my ...

The Kernel - A Discussion of Medical Marijuana

As a healthcare professional, I am both personally and professionally opposed to the legalization of recreational marijuana and concerned with the consequences of that legalization.

Massachusetts Benefits from Lingering Law to Sell Liquor in New Jersey Supermarkets

April 7, 2019

In Massachusetts, we have been following the ongoing debate in New Jersey to expand the number of liquor licenses that one entity can own. For decades, supermarkets and other entities in both states have been unnecessarily and unfairly limited under outdated laws that stymie business growth and customer convenience.

Massachusetts had endured these onerous restrictions until lawmakers and ...

State Should Restore Funding for Homestead Rebate Immediately

Dear Editor:

And Every Word is True by Gary McAvoy

And Every Word is True by Gary McAvoy (Literati, 2019)

Some books you can’t wait to finish; some books you never want to end. For me, Gary McAvoy’s rivetting new book, And Every Word is True, was so intriguing that I did not want it to finish it. Granted, true crime is my favorite genre, and any book about Truman Capote’s classic In Cold Blood is going to lure my attention.
