Coretta Scott King will be laid to rest in a mausoleum next to her husband at the Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial. At present, she will be in a temporary mausoleum until the marble one is completed for her. The inscription at the site will read, "And now abide Faith, Hope, Love, These Three; but the greatest of these is Love." For those than never read the Bible the text is from First Corinthians.
Carry a Condom or Pay the Fine
Councilman William Pena of Tulua, Colombia has brought a measure before city government that if passed would require everyone in town to carry at least one condom on their person at all times. He says Tulua has one of the highest HIV transmission rates in the country and this would prevent the spread of the disease. Religious leaders are outraged. If passed, the law would go into effect in March and fines for those not carrying a condom would be upward of $180.
You’re Hot; Not For Long Though
This January had temperatures 8.5 degrees higher than average for the U.S., with average temperatures in North America at 39.5 degrees. The heat set a new high for temperatures with the previous record held at 37.5 degrees back in 1953. The National Climate Center said the temperatures won’t hold in February, so get those anti-PETA furs out of the closet this month.
Just Me, Cocoa; One in the Same?
Caspar suggested that Just Me, a new blogger member frequently associated with inflammatory comments, is simply me using a different name to post comments. For the record, I barely have the time to write the blog AND post my own comments, so writing a third portion to simply get a rise out of folks is not only untrue, it’s absurd. Moreover, many of the ill comments made by Just Me are directed at or about me, so I’d be a self-hating fool to take his position. I will say this, I’ve narrowed down the Just Me person as male, probably not from NYC and slightly homophobic. Caspar, et al, I hope this helps in your quest to uncover the identity of our new blogger.
With the nation experiencing its highest divorce rates; women having children out of wedlock; folks choosing not to marry; others playing it safe with the heart and not committing to anyone. How will these changes in lifestyle affect the future generations of our society and/or family? What can the government do to positively affect family life, unity and commitment going forward?
