Christian nationalism is shaping a Pa. primary — and a GOP shift

STROUDSBURG, Pa. — The Thursday Night Group started in early 2021. A few church friends frustrated over vaccine and mask mandates would meet every week to gripe over what they saw as their lost freedoms.

Re: U.S. baby formula shortage is worrying parents. Here’s what to know.

From the comment section of this article: "Didn't realize, until today's press conference, that not all states have instituted a WIC waiver. It might help a lot for all of them to do so. FYI, WIC is a federal program, but administered by individual states, which can negotiate with the formula compan...

Re: The $1 Trillion Crypto Meltdown... What has happened to 'Digital Gold'?

UncleDad, I agree with the concept, but I'm not quite that casual about it. So far, I have done pretty well for a farm boy.

Re: The $1 Trillion Crypto Meltdown... What has happened to 'Digital Gold'?

UncleDad, Ok, if you say so. I don't own any form of "crypto," nor have I. I always thought of it as a market that operated on the "Greater Fool" theory, even when some of my acquaintances were chiding me for "missing out." I don't operate on the FOMO theory either. As to what has happened to digit...
