I liked those two words put together “Christian Science.” An interest in high school and now is to find ways to build bridges between science and religion. I got involved in Christian Science.

Over the years I have given away many gift subscriptions of the “Monitor” to interested people and friends. It has shocked me greatly that none of those to whom I gave a gift of the newspaper ever resubscribed. I have concluded that when people say they are looking for a “fair and balanced” newspaper, they don’t mean it. They really want a newspaper or radio or television show that goes along with how they feel. Even if they say differently, people want a news source that has a point of view.

Over the decades many Islamic countries have felt that “The Christian Science Monitor” was the most fair American newspaper. Diplomats, educators, and historians seem to be the ones who seriously read the “Monitor,” not the public.

Sign of the times… Yet, I find it sad that the glory days of the printed newspaper are clearly history – some of the biggest dailies are struggling seriously. Soon we will carry our ‘Kindle’ to the coffeehouse. Not quite the same…
