Longtime White House correspondent Helen Thomas has abruptly retired amid the fallout over her controversial statements about Israel, her employer announced Monday.

Even today, the power of fire far outpaces our ability to use it safely. Nearly 3,000 people die annually in the U.S. from fires and its dangerous byproducts: smoke and heat.

Far too often we are surprised by news that a couple is divorcing when we all thought things were fine. But seldom do we hear, as we did with Al and Tipper, that a couple is separating.

Our church doesn’t have enough funerals,” associate pastor John Stoltzfus said in his annual All Saints’ Day sermon. In his suburban Mennonite congregation, members tend to leave the area after they retire. They move into denominational retirement communities, or they head south to warmer climates.

Other pastors he knows who serve at churches where retired members stay in the area perform on average one funeral a week.
