Jan Mickelson wouldn't budge. His friendly chat with Mitt Romney had veered into a discussion of abortion and Mormonism, and the Republican presidential hopeful -- eyes wide, arms waving -- was clearly annoyed. "Let me once again say I understand my faith better than you do," Romney snapped. "Well, I'm not sure," Mickelson replied, and the two went back at it, Romney angry and sarcastic, Mickelson polite but persistent. Every weekday morning, from 9 to 11:30, Mickelson presides over the No.

The partisan sniping this election cycle has produced plenty of vitriol but no actual violence -- yet. Both Vice President Dick Cheney and Sen. Zell Miller (D-Ga.), the keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention, have mentioned dueling in the last two weeks. First Miller, angry at MSNBC host Chris Matthews' persistent questioning on the Sept. 1 edition of "Hardball," told Matthews: "I wish we lived in the day where you could challenge a person to a duel."

Vice President Dick Cheney suggested Tuesday that electing the Democratic presidential ticket would make the United States more vulnerable to a terrorist attack. Cheney's comments came on a day when President Bush escalated his efforts to paint Sen. John F. Kerry as wobbly on the war in Iraq and the Democratic challenger continued to more harshly criticize the incumbent for the way he orchestrated the attack.

Before Gordon and Monica Fischer publicly announced their endorsement of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the couple went through a peculiar Iowa ritual: the apology call. It's the Dear John letter of presidential politics -- by phone. "At times you hope they don't pick up," said Gordon R. Fischer, a lawyer and power broker in Iowa Democratic politics. "It's hard."

These are the children who are rootless, helpless--and homeless. The fortunate ones bounce from school to school, taking handouts, eating meals at soup kitchens and spending nights in homeless shelters. The wretched ones never make it to school. They live in parks or under shrubs, and sometimes they have to shoplift their meals. Steven Giguere Jr., only 4 months old, could be considered among the wretched.

The morning scream-fest over how to avoid being a "prisoner of love" was reaching a crescendo on the "Tempestt" syndicated talk show when a familiar, soothing face appeared in a commercial on WHO-TV here. It was Pastor John Palmer of the First Assembly of God Church with a 30-second appeal to those "stressed out over life" to join him in prayer with Iowa's largest congregation.

The morning before Bill Horn set off to establish his new missionary outpost, worshipers at the Springs of Life Ministries in Lancaster, Calif., asked God to give him courage. Their prayers on that February morning in 1994 were not unlike those other congregations across America offer as missionaries embark for Rwanda, Bolivia or the Philippines. But Springs of Life members believe there is now a more important front in the war between good and evil.
