Change is coming whether you want it or not To the editor: On several occasions, Glenn Beck has asserted that the phrase "social justice" is code for Marxist, Communist and/or Nazi. And most tea party members are in agreement. As I read and hear many of the messages coming from Beck and the tea party, I hear another phrase being used that I believe is code. That phrase is "taking America back. " My question is this: Whom, what and/or where do they want to take the country back to, or is it from?

HALFWAY -- Cheryl Flook had 567,000 reasons to have her head shaved Saturday at Valley Mall. Before the last of her freshly dyed red locks dropped to the floor outside the entrance to J.C. Penney, the 52-year-old Hagerstown foster mother made sure the motivation for her shave didn't go unnoticed. "Hey everybody, this is to raise awareness, that's there's 567,000 foster kids in the U.S., 513 in Washington County alone," Flook shouted. "If you want to be a foster parent, ask one of us. " The spectacle was Flook's idea to raise money for the Washington County League of Foster and Adopted Families and helped kick off the nonprofit organization's annual walk benefit set for June 13. While Flook routinely has kept her hair short, she said she didn't know if she wanted to see herself in a mirror after it was done.

But in a recessionary period like this - when frugality is considered more of a virtue than extravagance - it's a lot harder to impress your friends with any sort of SUV, even a Lexus. Likewise, it's tough to wow people with a palatial property that carries whopping mortgage payments.

The best-selling book "Friday Night Lights" chronicles the fanaticism of Texas high school football players and fans. But it also provides a revealing look into life in the oil patch.
