Keep The Door Open

By Peter Molenaar In consequence to May’s column “Mind and Body Unite”, I did catch some flak from the comrades. Hey, can’t a lonely atheist do a little outreach?

The “Laws of War” are the worst idea ever

Just like the “Iraq War”, Obama is now putting a projected “deadline” to end the “Afghan War”, is this even possible?
