ADVICE: May 12, 2022 May is graduation month. Students, parents and friends celebrate the end of one process and the start of another. Once we finish with our formal education, we often forget that our learning should not end. Lifelong learning is critical, and I hope that this column will serve as a reminder that we all have something more to learn. Think of this, dear reader, as my spring gift...

ABORTION: May 5, 2022 This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and as I did last week in my column, I will write again about my mother, Jackie Battley Gingrich, who died in 2013 yet remains a living inspiration to me.

Outrage drives ratings up, but it also drives people apart. I’ve been focusing instead on causes that bring people together. Since this Friday we...

ECONOMY: April 14, 2022 “It’s the economy, stupid,” is the infamous mantra conceived by Democratic political consultant James Carville that underscored the main issue driving the 1992 presidential race. A few months later, Bill Clinton replaced George H.W. Bush as president; it was the voters’ focus on the economy that put...

ACTIVITY: April 7, 2022 The news swirling around us this week is about the war in Ukraine, the variability in the stock market, the rapid increase in the rate of inflation and the continuing issues related to the supply chain. It’s too easy to be drawn into the news and confusion of the day, to respond on Twitter or to lash out at others due...
