Dahleen Glanton: Nothing divides America more than tossing politics into a heated religious debate
Since the founding of America, religion has been at the center of many of the most contentious conflicts our nation has encountered. We should have known it would be only a matter of time before the church was inserted into the coronavirus pandemic.Throughout history, religion has brought us together when our survival as a nation was under siege. But just as often, it has ripped us apart when politicians sought to use it to justify selfish deeds.The unholy alliance between religion and politics is an effective tool in creating discord, dissension and division. That’s why politicians find it so...

Unity agreement: Nothing that couldn't have been agreed on in April 2019
When Benjamin Netanyahu returned to the Prime Minister's Office in 2009 after a decade-long hiatus, he hurried to complete the swearing-in ceremony of his government at 11:59pm on March 31, because he did not want his government associated with April Fool's Day.Similarly, what gave Netanyahu and Blue and White leader Benny Gantz the final push to finally sign a dealwas not pressure from any virus, politician or demonstration but the desire to get the agreement signed moments before Holocaust Remembrance Day began. They would have felt too much shame had they waited any longer.If only they had ...

‘Mr. Jones’ Movie Review: Historical Drama Tells Important Story With Poise
Nothing is as refreshing as a movie that not only tells a story worth telling but also finds a way to tell it in a meaningful way. Polish maestro Agnieszka Holland‘s new biopic of Welsh journalist Gareth Jones does an excellent job of focusing on the beautifully human details of an epic true story.The film follows Jones (James Norton), recently fired from his job in the British government, as he travels to Moscow in 1933 in the hopes of interviewing Jospeh Stalin. The ever-acute Jones smells something foul in how the Kremlin’s spending continues at extravagant levels despite the fact Russia’s ...

Endangering pedestrians to fight coronavirus? Walking bans should go by the boards | Mulshine
Nothing will guarantee that you don't die of coronavirus quite like getting run over by a speeding pickup truck.I was struck with that thought as I dodged a pickup while crossing the street on the ocean block of Belmar the other day.I had just left a press conference in Trenton at which Gov. Phil Murphy and his staff had enunciated the administration’s eminently sensible policy concerning access to state parks and forest during the current crisis.Murphy had mentioned “cabin fever.” I’ve witnessed quite a bit of that ever since the Governor issued that stay-at-home order. There’s an exception f...
