LOSS OF MORALITY
November 4, 1998
To the editor: I would like to know why we can’t find a candidate for a public office who is anti-drugs, anti-crime, anti-murder of an innocent baby, anti-indecent exposure, anti-pornography on TV in the media and “art.” Women cry out, “It is my body,” and are supported by politicians. How wrong can you be? The Bible is very explicit that the body is the temple of God and belongs to Him, not an individual. I would like a candidate who knows that if a person commits a felony he loses his civil rights and is not entitled to have ACLU scream and get him a personal computer with e-mail in his cell.

LAW NOT JUST ABOUT MONEY
November 4, 1998
I recently read a new book by a young lawyer recounting his life at a large New York City law firm. It is supposed to be a cautionary tale. The young lawyer, fresh from Harvard Law School (which he attended after getting a master of fine arts degree from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop), forsook his plans for public interest or government law practice for the life of an associate in a large, high-paying Wall Street firm. The book is intended to show the reader how terrible such a life is. The young lawyer is immediately thrown into the thick of things and quickly discovers that his superiors do not wish to be his friends or mentors. Instead their sole desire is to see how many billable hours they can get out of him. He soon realizes that the more he works, the more money the partners in the firm will make.

COMFORT FOOD SEASON OPENS
November 4, 1998
When the air turns cool and crisp in autumn, I seem instinctively to turn toward certain foods. I’m thinking this week about ways to use sweet potatoes, which are a comfort food I associate with the fall and Thanksgiving. The question of what’s appropriate to the season became a little sticky for me a few weeks ago, when a shopping trip took me past a display of Christmas wrapping paper, even before daylight-saving time had expired. My seasonal disorientation was renewed on Monday, when I opened the mailbox to find the first 1999 spring seed catalog there among another batch of holiday catalogs.
IN 1898
November 4, 1998
On Nov. 4, 1898, the Lawrence World, on the eve of the election in which J.D. Bowersock, Lawrence business leader, was running for U.S. House, editorialized about “The Home Duty,” observing “It means something to have a congressman. It meant something when Dudley C. Haskell was in congress. He secured Haskell institute for this county. The present republication nominee for congress has more financial interest in this town in a minute than Haskell had in a lifetime. Therefore Bowersock would have all the more incentive to take hold and do something for the people living in this county.” — Courtesy Watkins Community Museum
