Not your typical Super Bowl halftime show

The totally understated pro-life message in the 2023 Super Bowl Angelica Vecchiato:   The 2023 Super Bowl-- a close game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles-- went down in history for several reasons: the Kelce brothers clashing against one another other on opposite ends of the field, star player Mahomes’ strained ankle, and Justina Miles, the first female “deaf performer,” signing [...]

Too much information and little lies

Interim writer, Rick McGinnis, Amusements Rick McGinnis: Ten years ago, journalist Leah McLaren wrote something that would come back to haunt her: “I have a secret to tell you: The best confessional writing isn’t the truth.” The first sentence of an article published in Chatelaine magazine, it was a reflection back on a career writing about herself and her experiences [...]

Life is good

Interim writer, Josie Luetke, Talk Turkey Josie Luetke: I find it helpful to make sense of the world through various dichotomies—good versus evil, light versus darkness, life versus death, existence versus non-existence, something versus nothing. In the movie Inception, Leonardo DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, tasked with implanting an idea in a sleeping target’s subconscious. To accomplish “inception,” he needs “the simplest [...]

A lesson in respecting precedent

Rory Leishman: On Dec. 19, a six-judge panel of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts unanimously affirmed in Kligler v. Massachusetts Attorney General that no person has a constitutional right to physician-assisted suicide. For the United States, this ruling was not unusual. In 10 states plus the District of Columbia, legislatures – not the courts -- have legalized physician assisted suicide. However, [...]
