The mighty pen of cartoonist Paul Laud
January 22, 2011 07:52 PM PST
The economic implosion of 2008 had precious few upsides, but we got one of them: Cartoonist Paul Laud. His illustrated limericks skewer politicians left, right and center every Tuesday on MorristownGreen.com. Paul Laud learned the power of cartoons as a Princeton undergrad way back in the '70s...something about a food fight. Then his mighty quill lay dormant for three decades. What revived his satirical career--and how does he keep his quill so razor-sharp? Aspiring pundits and cartoonists should tune into this interview by Kevin Coughlin for MorristownGreen.com.Tea Parties and tragedies: Morris teen says MLK dream remains distant

Podcast by Kevin Coughlin for MorristownGreen.comThe Rev. Carolyn Ann Knight: Martin Luther King Jr's dream will not die
January 18, 2011 03:05 PM PST
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King was a preacher, we are reminded by the Rev. Carolyn Ann Knight, who preaches here about the care and feeding of our dreams. Dreams are as vital to a society's health as to an individual's, she says. A dearth of dreams led an assassin to kill the civil rights leader, and prompted another deranged man to shoot 19 people outside a Tucson Safeway store, the preacher says.
Rev. Knight, a guest preacher from Georgia, delivers her remarks at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day service at Calvary Baptist Church in Morristown, NJ, on Jan. 17, 2011. She is introduced by the Rev. Sidney Williams Jr., new pastor of the local Bethel AME Church.

January 18, 2011 02:46 PM PST
Janet Broderick, rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Morristown, NJ, traces the inner journey of Martin Luther King Jr., and challenges us to dig deeply within ourselves to find meaningful purposes for our lives.

Rev. Broderick's talk is from the 26th annual Morris Interfaith Breakfast on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 17, 2011, at the Hyatt Morristown. She is introduced by Rabbi Donald Rossoff of Temple B'Nai Or in Morristown.

September 08, 2010 11:55 PM PDT
Few rock stars can match Todd Rundgren's combination of brilliance, breadth and balls. The guy writes hit songs; plays all the instruments; produces hits for other stars; breaks new ground with video, graphics and online networks; scores tunes for TV shows and movies, and tours with Beatles.
Just don't ask Todd to perform his hits. And whatever you do, don't call him a rock and roller.
Todd talks about the origins of his 1974 album 'Todd' and 'Healing' from 1981. Was 'Healing' inspired by a brush with death? How did Phil Rizzuto slide into a Meat Loaf album on Todd's watch? Who are Todd's guitar gods? And what's a Ringo tour like?
