Character: Who Cares?
US Flag Charges of sexual impropriety have once more been levelled at the President. Questions of his ethical character are thus raised anew. Recent polls and "man-on-the-street" inter- views indicate that the general public shows little concern over Mr. Clinton's personal ethics, at least so long as they like his job performance. Let us leave aside the related questions regarding the allegations of dishonesty and suborning perjury for the moment. 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 in life? We have put together a special focus on this issue.

A Day and Lifetime for

heart Valentine's Days is a holiday that celebrates the unique love relationship between men and women. The joy of romance, along with its associated products and services, meets with vigorous promotion during this month each year. Properly speaking, there should be a special day set aside to honor one's beloved. But today's popular portrayal of love, especially the romantic variety, is not without difficulties.

Our media culture presents love as a feeling rather than a virtue. Is a fleeting sentiment, however, powerful enough to sustain couples through the torrents that plague today's relationships? Should sexual passions, blazes fanned by media imagery, be the primary basis for serious choices between men and women? One should take this opportunity to consider those factors which contribute to wholesome dating, engaged and married relationships. Thus, we have put together a special focus on this issue.
