Come Together There is a time-honored war strategy known as “divide and conquer,” and never has it been more effective than now. The enemy is using it against us through television, internet and other social media. I opened a Facebook account a couple of years back to gain more entries in local contests. Since then I had fallen under its spell; I rushed into judgment on several social issues based on information found on those pages

Quiet The Phones! This weekend we attended two beautiful Christmas musical events and the enjoyment of both were significantly diminished by self-absorbed boors holding their stupid iPhones high overhead to capture extremely crucial and highly needed photos. We too own iPhones, but during a public concert we possess the decency and manners to leave them turned off and/or at home. Today’s performance, the annual Messiah Sing at Traverse City’s Central Methodist Church, was a new low: we watched as Mr. Self-Absorbed not only took several photos but then afterwards immediately posted them to his Facebook page. We were dumbfounded.

A Torturous Defense In defense of the C.I.A.’s use of torture in a mostly fruitless search for vital information, some suggest that the dire situation facing us after 9-11, justified the use of torture even at the expense of the potential loss of much of our nation’s moral authority.

They're SugarKissed

Ross Boissoneau - December 10th, 2012

   

If you find yourself hungering for a sweet treat, Christine Burke has you covered.
    Actually, you can get your yogurt covered there, with any of a multitude of toppings. Or get a tasty sweet cupcake. Or a cookie, or even some tea to cleanse your palate with, so you can have some more desserts.
    It’s all available at SugarKissed, downtown Traverse City’s newest and, well, sweetest eatery.
    SugarKissed is Burke’s brainchild, a place that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. While it is becoming known for its rotating cast of yogurt flavors, Burke wants to make clear that it’s “more than just a yogurt store.” (She's pictured here with  baker Maeda Walton.)
    How much more? Burke actually seems proudest of her cupcakes, no doubt because they’re made in house by herself and her two bakers. She notes the key lime and peanut butter chocolate as two of the most popular, but points to a special berry flavor as one unique to the store.
    “It’s blueberry made with Light of Day tea,” she said.
