20 years later, Medical Leave Act helping workers, families • Twenty years ago this week, President Bill Clinton signed FMLA into law.

How love and faith can grow, even when one spouse stops believing • When a once-believing spouse has a crisis of faith and religious conflict ensues, couples can be tempted to split up or just ignore it and hope it goes away. On the other hand, the couple’s love can be strengthened, shaped and purified.
Johnson’s war • Indicted Utah businessman Jeremy Johnson is waging high-tech, low-cost battles against his federal tormentors through YouTube videos, websites, Facebook, Twitter, a blog and interviews with the mainstream media.
