  • COLUMN: Politeness is lacking in this generation

    The Apostle Paul says love “does not act unbecomingly” (I Corinthians 13:5 NASB).

    The New Living Translation of the Bible uses the word “rude.” J. B.

    Two and a half years ago I had a horrible accident.

    I’m sure everyone remembers the big ice storm. A few weeks after the ice cleared up, we had black ice one night that caused multiple wrecks in LaRue County. 

    On Feb. 21, 2009, I was driving home from the grocery store and hit black ice. My Jeep slammed into a tree. Pastor Knight from Family Worship Center found me. I’m not exactly sure what happened between the time Bro. Knight found me and when the EMS arrived. I was sent to U of L Hospital by helicopter.

    Well, technically Congress didn’t declare pizza a vegetable. What Congress did was say the amount of tomato paste used on a slice of pizza could be declared as one serving of vegetable. And I thought tomatoes were classified as fruit on the nutritional chart.
