Letters to the Editor 9/26 Schools should allow prayer To the editor: We are learning about the Bill of Rights in government class. The First Amendment states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise of religion thereof. " Then, if this is so, why was prayer taken out of the public schools? Every morning we pledge allegiance to our nation's flag including the words "one nation under God. " Why can't we have a few minutes each morning for students to reflect, pray or, whatever, quietly to themselves?

The issue of wiretaps without warrants is one that requires a carefully and intelligently designed solution and here's a little discussion of the history and possibilities in this area. Some time back, Admiral John Poindexter proposed a system called Total Information Awareness (TIA), which basically swept up huge quantities of information on just about everybody, in almost every category, and then had big computers that could sort through it looking for patterns that might point toward terrorism.

Since she began singing more than 25 years ago, Lana "Shawty" Spence has gotten use to being compared to Janis Joplin - the rock icon who has gone to the big concert hall in the sky. With vocals that are powerful and bluesy, Spence understands the similarity and considers it a compliment. It was her voice, after all, that landed her a brief stint with Joplin's band, Big Brother & The Holding Company. "But I'm past the point of singing 'Bobby McGee'," the singer noted. "So, folks, don't ask, OK?"

Thanks to our family cat, I am alive to tell the story of my first day as executor of my father's estate. My father died on Monday, Nov. 22. My brother Hank said it was important for us to meet with my father's lawyer as soon as possible to understand the probate process. Hank is an attorney in Houston and would be flying back home at the end of the week. I think he felt his role as big brother was to make sure I understood what would be expected of me as the executor. Hank made an appointment for Wednesday, Nov. 24. I reluctantly agreed, even though I was an emotional wreck, my dad's attorney was a 90-minute drive away and rainstorms were drenching the roads.

Funny story. So, I'm home the week after Thanksgiving for my uncle's funeral. (No, really. It gets better. And, unfortunately, worse. Much, much worse.) It's a rough time for the family - my mother's brother Jim had been in and out of the hospital for a month when he was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer the day before Thanksgiving. He was my grandparents' firstborn; Mom's big brother; Dad's best friend. Day after Thanksgiving we're in a hospital room in Westfield, Mass.

In my experience, procrastination is one of the biggest motivation-stealing behaviors in existence. It robs progress, momentum and success from too many people for no good reason.  To be perfectly transparent, I'm guilty of it myself with certain things in my life. I know when you come here every week and you read my column, and think "I should really do this," that you probably won't. I've heard many times "I love your column, I read it every week. I don't do what it says, but I read it ... ", and I would usually just laugh and keep it moving.

Lana Spence tried singing techniques promoted by voice teachers. They took away the power in her voice. She went to California for a few years to take a shot at the big time. After experiencing some success, but finding the dog-eat-dog mentality too much, she returned home to the Tri-State area. She's glad to be home and, no doubt, her fans are glad she returned. Spence is the lead vocalist for Thique, a popular rock cover band that will open the summer Wind Down Fridays series at The Maryland Theatre this Friday.
