    Commentary
    Wayne Brouwer
    Oscar Wilde penned a powerful story about behaviors and definitions and justice called The Picture of Dorian Gray. Dorian was a handsome young man, a model of physical beauty and moral virtue. People complimented him on his good graces. Parents pointed to him as an example to their youth. One artist even painted an exquisite portrait of him.

    Dorian idolized the painting. He...

    The American Messenger, in 1922, ran this little story. A young girl, unaccustomed to traveling, was taking a train ride through the country.

She did not understand how it could safely be...

    "Have you seen it?" whispered the Barbie doll to her next door neighbour.

    The next Barbie doll in line was instantly alert. There were five different Barbie dolls, who lived jumbled together in the toy cupboard but who were so jealous of each other that they rarely spoke. "Seen what?" asked the second Barbie doll, blue eyes darting all round the room.

    John W. Clarke
