Spiritually Speaking | BeDADitudes

Written by By Sister Mary Thill. Posted in June

The world is currently accepting applications for the position of father.To qualify: You must be fully ready to accept the most important job a man can ever have. There are no days off, no pay raises and very few vacations. You will be paid in kisses within months of starting. If you can accept this payment arrangement, in lieu of pension you will receive a lifetime of happiness, adoration, and unwavering, unapologetic love.

A Walk in the Park | Nobody goes there anymore

Written by by LeMoyne Mercer. Posted in June

The National Park Service celebrated its Centennial in 2016 with advertising to remind us of all the wonders available right here in the US. As part of the promotion, they waived the park entrance fees for any family with a fourth grader. Utah, in particular, piggy-backed on this opportunity to increase tourism with an ad campaign telling us that it is home to five, count them, five spectacular national parks. And the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is right on the Utah-Arizona line so you might as well do that too. The families-with-fourth-graders gambit worked so well that it is being repeated in 2017—though I am not quite clear on what is so special about fourth grade.
