It’s hard to imagine anyone not liking Disney. Sure, many of us go through a phase where we think we’re too old and sophisticated for Mickey Mouse. This typically leads to our pretentious cynic phase in which our college professors open our eyes to all the stereotypes and “hurtful ethics” Disney has endorsed over the years. Films like “Escape from Tomorrow” haven’t exactly helped the company’s image either. At the end of the day, though, nobody can outrun the magic, good will, and sheer lovability attached to Disney. There isn’t a cold-hearted soul that can’t be completely won over by the mouse house … except maybe P.L. Travers, the author of “Mary Poppins.”
As you survey the political landscape, what do you see? Support for capitalism and liberty or an intransigent proclivity for control and political power? Intellectual pragmatism or crony capitalism? The truth of history or the lies of an imaginary future? The support of economic growth or the oppressive regulations of socialism?

As we approach Thanksgiving, and the weeks that seem to race towards Christmas, there’s plenty to be grateful to God for in our lives. Thanksgiving invites us to take time to consider all of our blessings. While some of us may be thrilled with the material things of life, many of us look around and realize that the most important things in life aren’t things at all. They’re our relationships. That’s our relationship with God in Christ Jesus, as well as our relationships with family, friends, and neighbors. Shortly after Thanksgiving, Christians begin another season of intentional reflection: the season of Advent. Since we’re giving thanks and taking time to celebrate all our relationships, let’s take a closer look at the one relationship that changed the world.
Have you ever walked through a season in your life you thought might break you? I’m not talking about the everyday stuff. We’re each going to wrestle with our share of broken air conditioners in July, cranky bosses, and family feuds. I’m talking about soul crushing, heart wrenching times when getting through the days takes a herculean effort. When you can’t lift yourself out of the pit despite all of your coping resources – faith, friends, family, chocolate ice cream. And wine, in the name of truth telling.
(Editor’s note: This is the first in a two-part guest commentary. See the conclusion in the Nov. 22 AFN, where one porn user shares his journey and mental health experts struggle over what to call this problem).
Each year, state and local governments in Arizona spend millions of dollars buying items and services they require. Unfortunately, though, those governments spend too many local tax dollars on out-of-state vendors when local small businesses could do the job just as well — or better.
I am a child of the late 1970s — early ’80s — it was a great time to be a kid. Times have changed so much and I am reminded daily of the things my boys will never know or experience.
In a scary new venture, Rush Limbaugh has announced publication of a children’s history book, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims,” intended to correct what he and his fellow troglodytes consider historical distortions in currently used school books. Having bamboozled millions of angry, racist old white men, Limbaugh is expanding his propaganda victims. According to Limbaugh, children shouldn’t be taught about our broken Indian treaties; our former dictator-propping foreign policy; and similarly unpleasant historical facts.
Those who abhor public prayer are at it again. They are offended by reference to deity among other things. There have always been those who do not recognize the unseen (“God cannot be proven”), never mind that they live in an age of invisible power, which keeps cell phones and computers running. And, what about our invisible human energy, love and hate, which packs a punch; creates and changes civilization?
Unless you are an unfortunate soul who is allergic to peanuts, nobody doesn’t like peanut butter, to paraphrase Sarah Lee’s famous tag line.

On the first Friday of every month, Arizona Science Center invites adults to enjoy the museum’s three floors, in addition to the special exhibit ‘Imaginate.’ October’s event features a “Fear the Beer” garden, music from DJ Dragon, a talk from biochemist and physicist Frederic Zanhausern on Forensic DNA, and a screening of “The Truth Behind CSI TV” in the IMAX.

(See The Fourth Turning by historians William Strauss and Neil Howe.)
