*+-Rev. Dr. Jim Nelson: Any God who would do something as gratuitously tragic as the recent earthquake in Japan, or last year’s in Haiti is no God to believe in, or, if to believe in, then not to worship. Why do the innocent suffer – because they do. There is no reason. Read Job.
-+*Treva Brandon Scharf: Can’t afford a gym membership? Get bored easily by exercise? Don’t want to run into your ex at Equinox? No problem! There’s always the great outdoors – otherwise known as your local park.
-+*Walter Moss: There is little chance that any Republican nominee will put dealing with climate change at the center of his/her agenda, but we progressives should insure that at least the Democratic nominee does.
