Oh, to be crazy and get paid for It
10/1/2020 4:11:04 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I usually don't complain a lot. When I do I get caught in some dilemma that I can’t talk my way out. You think I would learn my lesson, but I'm still in the learning curve. It was a long week, and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I had a busy schedule. She went her way, I went my way and the Spousal Twain only meets after the week’s work is done. Some weeks are better than others, but some aren't. And I was having a rather dismal week with a few things going wrong. For one, my vehicle needed to go to the garage to be...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Role Model for every American
10/1/2020 4:09:55 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “I attended law school in days when women were not wanted by most members of the legal profession …Yes, there are miles in front, but what a distance we have traveled from the day President Thomas Jefferson told his Secretary of State: ‘The appointment of women to [public] office is an innovation for which the public is not prepared. Nor,’ Jefferson added, ‘am I.’ “The increasingly full use of the talent of all of this Nation’s people holds large promise for the future,...

10/1/2020 4:05:14 PM

By Carissa Soukup   GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP)—Before the women take the floor, Mary Ann Rickertsen shares that she is off two medications because of the progress she has made in the Fit and Fabulous Older Adult Exercise/Fall Prevention Program. The program, led by Cindy Paustian, helps older adults such as Rickertsen develop strength and balance skills to help them with chronic illnesses. Four years ago, former physician assistant Roger Wells came to Paustian with the idea for this program for the older population because he saw the need. The group exercises twice a week...

Savvy Senior - Is There an Age Limit for Organ Donation?
9/24/2020 4:58:19 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, I never thought about becoming an organ donor until my brother died of kidney failure last year. But at age 78, I would like to know if I’m too old to be a donor, or if they would even use my organs if I were to die from COVID-19. What can you tell me? Potential Donor   Dear Potential, There’s no cutoff age for being an organ donor. Anyone, regardless of age or medical history, can sign up. In fact, there are many people well up into their 80’s that donate. The decision to use your organs is based on health of the organ, not age. So,...

Nick Kotz: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist with passion for Justice, much beloved friend
9/24/2020 4:54:52 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   I am deeply grateful for the extraordinary life and brilliant reporting of Nick Kotz who died in a tragic accident at the beautiful Virginia farm he and his wonderful wife Mary Lynn and son Jack shared so generously with so many friends. I met Nick in 1967 when he came to Mississippi to cover Senators Joseph Clark, Robert Kennedy, Jacob Javits, and George Murphy’s transforming visit to see first-hand the shocking levels of poverty, hunger, and nearly starving Black children and adults in the Mississippi Delta. I...

Getting away with it is half the fun
9/24/2020 4:20:23 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—I must admit I don't get away with very much, and I never have. It's not that I never try. It's just that whenever I try to get away with something, it always backfires. I wish there were a class somewhere entitled, "How You Can Get Away with Anything." I certainly would sign up. But I haven't found it yet. Every time I do something behind the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage's back, she always turns around. I don't know if she has eyes in the back of her head or if it's just women's...

Savvy Senior - Should I buy long-term care insurance?
9/18/2020 9:40:48 AM

Dear Savvy Senior, My wife and I have thought about purchasing a long-term care insurance policy, but we hate the idea of paying expensive monthly premiums for a policy we may never use. Is there a good rule of thumb on who should or shouldn’t buy long-term care insurance? Getting Old   Dear Getting, There are two key factors you need to consider that can help you determine if purchasing a long-term care (LTC) insurance policy is a smart decision for you and your wife. One factor is your financial situation and second is your health history. Currently, around 8...

A remembrance My beloved friend and Civil Rights titan John Lewis
9/18/2020 9:27:34 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   During Easter weekend in 1960 I took my first airplane ride, from Atlanta, Georgia (where I was a senior at Spelman College) to Raleigh, North Carolina, on a plane chartered by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) at great SCLC organizer Ella Baker’s behest. She was a brilliant, strategic, tough, and compassionate mentor. She invited student leaders from the sit-in protests happening at largely Black colleges across the South to travel to Shaw University to share experiences and see how we could sustain...
