John Corbett stars as the newly minted Reverend Michael Spurlock, sent to serve the people of a dying parish in Smyrna, Tenn., and to close it down. His wife Aimee and son Atticus have left everything, too, to go with him.

What they find is a small but hearty band of people unhappy about having their church sold out from under them.

Corporate America only succeeds if Capitalism works. Capitalism cannot work if the middle class is in debt, shrinking and can no longer be consumers.

America is still the wealthiest nation in the world and in world history … and America also has the greatest wealth disparity in the world and in world history.

I received a gift this week from a local artisan. I was looking for a functional and elegant communion goblet; something nice that also said “New Mexico” with a hint of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The cottonwood goblet that he made was absolutely perfect. Upon seeing it, it became quite obvious to me that this person had a gift that many of us do not have.
