  • Grace Notes: Holy day of non-obligation

    Today is a holy day. Some churches designate certain days as holy days of obligation, which (I think) means obligatory attending of services on days you otherwise wouldn't.

    But today, for me at least, is a holy day of non-obligation, of free will and pleasure.

    It's raining, although that doesn't particularly make it holy. It does help, however. At least today. At least that's what I think.

  • Fair pay? Not for women

    In the last half-century, we've taken huge steps to ensure that all Americans get treated equally in the workplace. From the landmark civil rights legislation of the 1960s and onwards, fair hiring and pay regulations have allowed women and minorities to stand up for themselves and demand the equal treatment they deserve on the job.

    The impact of that progress has been tremendous. An entire generation of Americans understands that they have a right to fair and honest treatment on the job - a far cry from the days when women could be openly denied "men's jobs."
