A Day and Lifetime for
Valentine's Day celebrates love relationships. But
today's popular portrayal of romantic love
is not without difficulties. Our media presents love
as a feeling rather than a virtue. Is a fleeting
sentiment, however, powerful enough to sustain couples through tough times?
Should sexual passions--blazes fanned by media imagery--be the primary basis
for serious choices between men and women? See
our special focus on this issue.
Character: Who Cares?
Charges of sexual impropriety have once more been
levelled at the President. Questions about his character are
thus raised anew. Recent polls and "man-on-the-street" interviews
indicate the general public shows little concern over
Mr. Clinton's personal ethics, at least so long as they like his
job performance. Considering the emphasis we place on the
adherence to right policies, is it important that our publicly
elected officials have good moral character? Or, generally speaking,
does character really matter at all? We have put
special focus on this issue.
