Recent poll shows shift in public opinion on life issues

Call it irony or Divine Providence. On the same weekend that Notre Dame was honoring pro-abortion President Obama, a new Gallup poll was released showing - for the first time since the poll's origin in 1995 - a majority of U.S. adults now identifying themselves as pro-life.

Fifty-one percent of those polled identified themselves as pro-life, while 42 percent called themselves pro-choice. This is an amazing shift from just one year ago when 50 percent identified themselves as pro-choice and 44 percent as pro-life.

Death penalty appeals are already under way

Within just five days the first legal appeal of Nebraska's newly enacted death-penalty legislation was filed with the state Supreme Court. Most likely this is the beginning of a long, expensive process that may or may not eventually result in execution of one or more of those tried and convicted of aggravated first-degree murder. This matter is one of years, not months.

Reward is often greater than sacrifice

It was the perfect weekend - five of us girls going to Chicago to celebrate a 50th birthday. We left behind children, husbands, baseball games, graduation parties, cooking and laundry for about 36 hours of girl talk, good food, shopping for ourselves, a little wine, a Broadway play and whatever else we darn well wanted to do!

The weather - sunny and warm - couldn't have been more perfect, and for Chicago, that's saying something.
