Why are Indians saying 'Ramadan'? It was always Ramzan for me. I don’t follow any Muslim rules this month, so why do I mind at all by what name it is called?

Eileen “My comment is unpolitical, David, but so far, I am fortunate to have decent dialect with my son about what he is going through at 13. Also, we pray from our souls every night and count our blessings so I hope and think he is getting spiritual grounding. I am too tired at night to...

"To make a baby?" he replies while stuffing a brownie into his mouth. Chocolate gathers in the corners of his mouth, crumbs stick to his chin and fall to the table as he waits for his response to be recorded in blue marker on the flip chart. "Sure, of course. Should I put that under...

The complexity of partners of different religions making a life-long relationship successful, doesn't really get tested until there are children involved. While one partner may be able to overlook the "details" of the differences between their beliefs and that of their partner's, how...

What's a third rail anymore?
