Church Is Not Essential: Lessons From COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is the story of the year, and it will be the story that defines much of the 2020’s as a decade.

One particular windmill that these grievance pieces attack is the closure of churches in several states across the US. I’ve seen an unending stream of articles, blog posts, a...

Chargers continue RB committee with Justin Jackson out

COSTA MESA — Running back Justin Jackson paced on the Chargers’ sideline as distressed fantasy football players waited for his return last week against the Las Vegas Raiders. Jackson, who injured his knee on the opening drive, returned for one snap, but Chargers coach Anthony Lynn didn’t like what he saw from Jackson and pulled him for good. Jackson finished with three snaps for zero carries, zero receptions and zilch for his fantasy football owners, who assumed Jackson had taken the reins on th...

Joshua Kelley in Chargers’ backfield plans for Week 9 vs. Raiders

COSTA MESA — Chargers coach Anthony Lynn knows the mental burden running backs carry after a string of fumbles.
