Question: I am a first-time landlord who just bought a six-unit apartment building as a personal investment. My Christian faith is extremely important to me and affects every aspect of my life.

Re "Judges put new therapy law in limbo," Dec. 5 U.S. District Judge William Shubb and psychologist Joseph Nicolosi have confused the right to express an opinion with the duty to do one's job.

President Obama stood before an audience of distinguished Christian clergy and lay leaders and took on the mantle of pastor in chief. "I have to be careful," he joked at the White House's annual Easter prayer breakfast. "I am not going to stand up here and give a sermon. It's always a bad idea to give a sermon in front of professionals. " With that, he gave a sermon, telling the story of Christ in the garden of Gethsemane and his eventual crucifixion, a sacrifice that "puts in perspective our small problems relative to the big problems he was dealing with.

It's a tribute to Jobs Re "Value of Apple tops $500 billion," Business, March 1 In the future, the next time a hippie-type guy has an idea about a company, we will probably listen real close to what he has to say. The late Steve Jobs' company will likely go much higher than half a trillion dollars in value. Who would have thought 10 years ago that their investments in Apple would increase in value by a whopping 4,500%?
