Good Bye Churchill

Finally, CU did something right.

With great "fear and trepidation" the CU Regents finally unloaded Professor Ward Churchill, firing him on Tuesday.

Teenagers Having Less Sex, Study Shows...

Okay, some good news sort of.

A Good Name Is More Desirable Than Riches...

Proverbs 22:1 states that, a good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.

When you are young, you often do things that you regret later. Right about now, the new beauty queen of New Jersey might be regretting her actions from years gone by. Here is the story. Understandably, this young lady and her family are victims of an extortion scheme. But, a better choice in years past could have avoided this current embarassment.

I only make light of this story to make the point that Proverbs 22:1 does. When one's life is all said and done, our most valued treasures will be our name, reputation and the relationships we have.

Bad ways always has a way of showing up when it is least expected.
