If you think it was stressful waiting for election boards around the country to count the millions of votes in the presidential election, imagine being the workers who were doing the counting.

For the past several years my wife and I along with other volunteers teach Children's Church on Sunday mornings. Before the pandemic showed up children from 2- 12 were permitted to attend but after State restrictions were implemented we changed our attendance to ages 2-7.

Some analysts look at the last few American presidential elections and see a schizoid polity.

More Americans voted in the 2020 presidential election than in any previous election.

In the fall elections, Democrats won the headliner but lost many undercards. With sizable gains in state legislatures and the U.S. Congress, Republicans are poised to control redistricting based on the 2020 Census and potentially take back the House of Representatives in 2022.

It’s such a perfect little story to illustrate this awful, awful year of the pandemic, cities overtaken by anarchy and an election from hell.

President-elect Biden selected a COVID-19 Task Force peopled by medical, scientific and health practitioners and administrators. Unencumbered by disbelief and gross incompetence, they can provide the best approach at this stage of the pandemic.

Thanksgiving will no doubt be different this year. I know there will be less weight gain at the Wolfsies’ because Mary Ellen is requiring that we put on our mask between every bite. That will slow down the time to consume the meal, which, according to my wife, results in less food intake. Th…

The welcome news that a COVID-19 vaccine now under development appears to be far more effective than initially hoped is a much-needed burst of good news as the pandemic gathers force across the nation.

Every Sunday morning, we Zoom with our fellow church members. We begin by praying … that the link will work. I don’t like Zoom. I always fear I’ll end up in the center square, and I’m not as funny as Paul Lynde on Hollywood Squares. Or worse, I’ll be in a bottom square and I’m not as good lo…

The 2020 campaign has mostly focused on domestic dynamics. But because most issues are internationally interrelated, foreign policy is on the ballot, too.

Americans are pinning their hopes on a vaccine for COVID-19 to bring this long pandemic nightmare to an end. And while it seems likely that there will be one or more federally approved vaccines by year’s end, even best-case scenarios estimate that it will be spring before there are enough do…
