    In Volume 11, Number 5, of the PTC Insider, there is a quote from Peter Chernin, president of News Corp., the parent company of the FOX TV network: “[We will] fight to the end for our ability to put controversial, offensive, and even tasteless content on the air” (Broadcasing and Cable, Oct. 21, 2008).

  • I must admit, in my life I have broken a dish or two, we probably all have.  But have you ever broken one of those supposedly “unbreakable” dishes? I won’t name names, because in fact these dishes do seem incredibly durable.  But they don’t just break, they almost blow up!

  • In my many years of family practice in the field of mental health, I have heard routine testimonies of some conditions in the homes in which my clients were raised. It didn’t matter if the family background was in wealthy or very poor families, just because one family has all or most of life’s goods, and the other seems to have lived from paycheck to paycheck, what I heard was that their particular family history was one of unhealthiness.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    Can you give me some tips on how to choose a good financial planner or adviser? My wife and I are five or six years away from retiring and could use some professional help to get us on track.

  • A reading from St. John 1:29:  The next day (John) saw Jesus coming toward him, and said. “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”
    The world we live in today is a world of extremes. For example, we can go from witnessing the innocence of childhood  to seeing the most wretched acts of violence…all in one day.

  • With all the cold and snow and ice out there I think we’ve all been reminded to hang on tight. I stepped on to a patch of ice as I got out of the car today and I was glad I was hanging on to the door. When it is raining or icy out it can be good to have something to grab on to.
    A while back I stepped on to some wet grass in a parking lot and did the splits right there. Thankfully I wasn’t hurt, I just glanced around to be sure no one had seen me and got right up. But it sure would have been nice to have someone to hang on to when my feet went out from under me.
