There has been much back-and-forth recently on The Sun's op-ed page over which party is the more egregious tax abuser, Republicans or Democrats. As a moderate, registered independent, I often get a chuckle when these two sides begin slinging their rancorous stones at each other on this matter. It is like listening to children arguing which came first, the chicken or the egg. Owen Cummings

I bring Maya Angelou along today because news of her death made millions of us think of her voice - we can all hear that voice - but mostly because I think she belongs here. I have a couple of small stories to share, and while they stand alone as heart-lifters and soul-refreshers, some Maya music might give them a little more resonance. She extracted great lessons and profound wisdom from small things - personal experiences, observations from daily life - and her words ended up on posters and greeting cards.

The thieves in "Tower Heist" may have a skyscraper-dwelling rich guy as their target, but the movie itself is reaching into your wallet. It's such a crassly commercial action-comedy that you won't be surprised to learn that its tower ing aspirations only involve box office gross. What ultimately matters is entertainment value, of course, and on that count the movie is so relentlessly busy that it will hold your attention. Movie stars, tall buildings, piles of money and even the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade will keep your eyes on the screen.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's controversial comments about walking across the street if he saw a young black man wearing a hoodie coming toward him late at night got me to thinking about an experience I had 30 years ago. One night while walking from my Charles Village home to my car, I noticed two young black men walking toward me. It was very dark since the street light had blown out. Should I cross the street? I asked myself, concluding that such a move would be racist since they had just as much right to the sidewalk as I did. I continued walking.
