Historical contribution of Native American Code Talkers is invaluable, cultural insensitivity is unfortunate. During an event at the White House on November 27 honoring Native American Code Talkers who used their indigenous languages to encode American military communications during World Wars I and II, President Donald Trump made reference to U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas.” The remark prompted immediate backlash. “First and foremost, we appreciate the honor and recognition that has been bestowed upon the Navajo Code Talkers, who truly are National Treasures and protectors of freedom,” Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye said. “It was our Code Talkers...Read More

Over 100 theologians, bishops, and leaders in Christian seminaries and denominations were signatories the Boston Declaration to protest the demise of...Read More
The Pringles Thanksgiving Dinner is a pilot taste test and has only limited availability. Generation-X (GenX) remembers not having parents at home to cook, and the thrill of the pre-microwave TV dinner. Even the overpriced Lunchables were preferred to a smashed PB&J sandwich with the companion sliced apple that had turned brown, or the over-ripe banana. For kids of the 1980s, pre-packaged meals were a realization of the future. But holidays were different, and usually involved real food.
