Gen. David Petraeus is so concerned about the safety of our men and women in battle that he has publicly warned against a Florida pastor's plan to burn copies of the Quran on Saturday, the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on America.

Shhhhhhh, we're told. Don't protest the Ground Zero mosque. Don't burn a Koran. It'll imperil the troops. It'll inflame tensions. The "Muslim world" will "explode" if it does not get its way, warns sharia-peddling imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Pardon my national security-threatening impudence, but when is the "Muslim world" not ready to "explode"?

It may just be a movie about one woman's spiritual journey of self-discovery, but the latest film release of Elizabeth Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" book starring Julia Roberts has inspired many of us to celebrate our lives in a more reflective way ... even in the clothes we wear. We may not be able to travel to India or Italy or Bali, but we can make the trek to Nordstrom and buy one of designer Sue Wong's exotic new caftans. Or we can tune into the Home Shopping Network to pick up an exotic beaded prayer necklace.

Dr. Marina Jacobson
With National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Approaching, Jacobson Shares Her Personal Story
When the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force announced its recommendations for new guidelines in breast health in late 2009, Dr. Marina Jacobson, an Englewood-based board-certified OB/GYN, reacted the way most of her colleagues did – with equal parts disbelief and outrage. The guidelines, which recommended that women start mammograms at age 50 (instead of age 40), that mammograms be done every two years (instead of every year) and also suggested that self breast examinations are no longer needed, run counter to the real-life experiences of thousands of patients and physicians, including Jacobson, who recently discovered her own family history of breast cancer.
