T REPLACE WELFARE
August 15, 1999
They can’t work; won’t work. It doesn’t matter. After five years on welfare they will be cut off, and we, through our government, will turn our backs on them. That is what the 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act has in store for the needy, desperate and forlorn as well as the lazy members of society. It is a human disaster in the making. Meanwhile, welfare rolls have dropped 50 percent. But sources at the state level tell us that only a third of the people who get off welfare are actually moving to employment despite the unusually low unemployment rate. Others are taking to the streets, moving in with relatives, or finding assistance elsewhere. And a phenomenon rumored among welfare workers is that states with depleting welfare rolls are lauded, so long waiting lists and bureaucratic hoops are being created to throw people off the lists.

August 15, 1999
To the editor: As a science educator, I am outraged and embarrassed by your state school board’s patently dark-age assessment of the science of evolution. It is apparent to the world that your state board has been hijacked by the extreme Christian right, who would rather teach of a flat world than to admit to a discourse between the remarkable, spirituality of science and their personal religion.

AMERICANS LOVE FAR-OUT LEGENDS
August 15, 1999
When we were in England in 1979 we stayed in York and decided to drive over to Haworth, where the Bronte family lived. The day was dismal, misty, just right for “Jane Eyre” or “Wuthering Heights,” and the ground was muddy, so we didn’t walk through the fields to the old house believed to be the inspiration for “WH.” But we walked around the cemetery and looked at the inscriptions and then drove away. And, we looked off into the gloom and for a minute thought we saw Cathy and Heathcliff in the heather (maybe it was Oberon and Olivier), walking into the clouds. Well, we didn’t see anybody, but our story would be as credible as some of the stories in the realm of legends, folklore and myths. This is a realm that has long fascinated me, and I taught about it for years in one of my classes.

Matter of fact, we may see him sitting in the crook of the arm of Touchdown Jesus at one end of the stadium. He was a devout enough Catholic that T.J. might accord him such an indulgence.

BOY SCOUT RULING IS RIPE FOR REVIEW
August 15, 1999
New Jersey’s Supreme Court has unanimously issued a ruling that deserves to be reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court, which four years ago issued a unanimous ruling that may be incompatible with the New Jersey ruling that the Boy Scouts cannot discriminate against homosexuals. The controversy, with wide ramifications for American freedom, is not about whether the Scouts’ policy is right but whether the Scouts have a right to it. James Dale, now 29, became a Scout at age 8, earned Eagle Scout status, and was an assistant scoutmaster in New Jersey when Scout officials saw a newspaper photo of him as a leader of a gay rights group at Rutgers University. The Scouts promptly expelled him, saying that homosexuality is incompatible with the Scout obligation to be “morally straight” and “clean.”
