Dr. Keith Ablow, one of America’s leading psychiatrists, an assistant professor at Tufts Medical School and a contributor on the Fox News Medical A-Team has some profound opinions on the subject of marriage. It seems that Dr. Ablow believes that marriage is a source of real suffering for the vast majority of married people and that it is “without a doubt, one of the leading causes of depression in the nation”. Under his banner of ‘healer” he suggests that marriage is a dying institution. In fact, to prove his point, he quotes actress, Cameron Diaz, who says that “marriage is a dying institution”. Ms. Diaz goes on the say that “she doesn’t think that we should live our lives based on old traditions that don’t suit our world any longer”. Dr. Ablow, reinforced by the profound wisdom of Ms. Diaz, insists that the end of marriage is only a matter of time now.”
Saturday, May 14, 2011, is the annual “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive” sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers. The idea is simple (you may have already received a post-card from your local post office announcing it). People are asked to place non-perishable food items by their mail box and the mail carrier picks them up as he/she does their route. The food items are brought back to the post office and volunteers from local food banks sort and collect the food. The food items are then brought to the local food pantries for distribution to those in need. This is the largest, single day food drive in the country and food pantries nationwide are able to stock up for the long summer months ahead because of it.
