Experience the peace that Shabbat brings
Shabbat comes from the Hebrew verb for pausing, ceasing. In Exodus 20:8-11 the reason given for the Sabbath is to recall creation. In Deuteronomy 5:12-15 it is to free us from slavery. Jewish tradition teaches us that these two seemingly separate meaning are in fact one.

Cutting in the visa line
The following editorial appeared in today's Washington Post: Tired of those long lines at the Immigration and Naturalization Service? Weary of waiting months for approval of a visa allowing you or a prospective employee to come to work in the United States? Starting today, some applicants will have a way to skip all that tiresome delay, if they're willing to pay for the privilege.

Cruise ship bill worthy of support
The Juneau Resource Alliance adds its voice to those supporting HB 260, the cruise ship regulatory bill that will be the focus of the upcoming special session of the Alaska Legislature. The Alliance is usually interested in resource issues like mining and forestry, but we have to keep an eye on all economic activity, and cruise ship visitors are a vital part of Southeast Alaska's economy. By now, everyone should be aware that the cruise industry also supports this legislation. It also appears that various environmental organizations do as well. This is a rare confluence of agreement in today's fractious climate.

Nice boots, so-so plan
This editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: George W. Bush has a great idea-one of those win-win things. Hiking through Sequoia National Park in his cowboy boots this week, the president proposed a five-year, $5 billion program to fix up the national parks. He called it "a new environmentalism for the 21st century." The plan would be financed in part by putting off the purchasing of parklands.
