Sip the right coffee to help the birds
Alaska's neotropical migratory birds are heading south to their second homes this month. They will fly for thousands of miles, burning only a few ounces of fat and muscle for fuel. Birds have a phenomenal metabolism that allows them to fly day and night until they reach their destination.

Respect for diversity lets us be agents of healing
As a society and community, we are very prone to spend a lot our energy focusing on our differences. We have legitimate differences. But too often our differences become walls of separation. We can spend, or in many cases, waste, our lifetime building up the tension between ourselves and others.

Intangibles have big role in home stretch
Presidential campaigns often have moments when voters pick up on a politician's "intangibles" and get a strong feeling whether they are right for the times. This year's race has been marked more by a tug of war than memorable moments.

Bush is wiser on military
The following editorial appeared in Thursday's Wichita Eagle: George W. Bush can't recite off the top of his head the names of every world leader. But the GOP presidential candidate seems to have a better overall handle on how to use the nation's military than his more experienced Democratic rival.

Peace process in peril
The following editorial appeared in today's Chicago Tribune: Despite three weeks of violence, Israelis and Palestinians have been careful not to declare the peace process dead. But the 1993 Oslo accords, which for seven frustrating years guided interaction between the two sides, may be irretrievably damaged.
