Word for the week

Lustful literature litters the landscape. Pornographic Internet sites lure victims into lurid acts. The objectives of the underworld are clear. X-rated sales are high. Big money is involved. The objectives of the Underworld are also clear. "When lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death" (James 1:15).
Jesus puts it this way. "I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew 5:28).

Music loses another King and other observations

Though many body parts seem to be breaking down the old adage, "The mind is the first thing to go," seems to hold true.

Later in the week, the legendary blues singer BB King died.
You guessed it. I go into "The sky is falling mode." Did I get it wrong? Was The Graphic getting letters to the editor wondering about my sanity? Was it BB King or Ben E. King that died?

What do we really think about Memorial Day?

Since we have some time before Memorial Day, I feel I have to share a pet peeve with you about this holiday.
Before you get excited, this is not that column that tells you that Memorial Day should be a somber, vigilant and depressing day. It is not that column that tells you that you should feel bad if you haven't served in the military, or that you should not go to the beach, or grill out, or have some fun. It's not that column, and that's not my pet peeve.

Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

Why can't that the Nash County Animal Control Shelter be open on Saturdays? How can we save the pets if we can't make them accessible for adoptions?
However, the Shelter is only open 1-4 pm, Monday through Friday. So if you work during that time and off on the weekend, like so many, that would mean you have to take time off to save a pet! We want to change that!
What is a Shelter? The word shelter means to provide cover or protection. Under that definition, in broad terms, the Nash County Animal Shelter is a shelter.
