"A lot of people don't even get this opportunity, so I'm very grateful." Wednesday, Morgan was pulled after two innings in his 13th start of the season for triple-A Lehigh Valley. He wasn't told he was being called up and texted his father, Wiley, saying his shoulder felt fine. That night, Wiley saw four cardinals on the back porch of the Morgans' home in Marietta, Ga.

    Several special interest groups have come together to protest Father's Day as a day of discrimination, as it allegedly stacks the deck against those women who are unable to become fathers, as well against those men who have chosen not to. "It's like an annual poke in the eye," said one concerned citizen, who did not wish to be self-identified as a member of any particular orientation nor gender. "As Michelle Obama recently said, the time has come to reconsider our traditions and reexamine our historical perspectives in order to accommodate this new generation who may not wish to glorify...

    I wrote my latest book, "Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives, Eight Hours," to personalize the biggest issue facing the country -- the growing number of fatherless homes, particularly in the black community, where over 70 percent of children are born to unwed mothers. Being raised without a father is hard. One is more likely to drop out, be unemployed or end up in jail. But it's not a death sentence. The book is about what my father faced and overcame: Only child; irresponsible, illiterate mother; never met his biological father; born in Jim Crow South; kicked out of his...

    Fatherís Day, that wonderful occasion when we celebrate our dads, is a time when all of us who have terrific dads need to feel sorry for atheists. Itís not such a happy day for them. Thatís the take-away from a book called Faith of the Fatherless: the Psychology of Atheism by psychology professor Paul Vitz who examines the lives of militant atheists and concludes that at the heart of their disbelief lies a disappointing and sometimes abusive experience with the atheistís earthly dad. Having felt no love from their own dads, they just canít believe in a God the Father...

Of the many adjectives one might choose to describe the youth who rioted in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, "perfect gentlemen" and "courteous to all" don't immediately come to mind.

    For the past several months, the Pelletiers have met face-to-face with Justina once weekly in supervised visits of no more than one hour. Now, Massachusetts DCF is denying the Pelletiers visitation with Justina in another blatant act of vindictive punishment. This new act demonstrates DCF's unwillingness to reunite the family and exposes the agency's lack of interest in the welfare of Justina or the Pelletier family. Instead, DCF is concerned with getting back at a family that spoke out against their heavy-handed custody grab. By prohibiting Justina from seeing her family, DCF is treating her differently than all other minors...

    Editor Note: This is an excerpt from Tom Purcell's new book, "Comical Sense: A Lone Humorist Takes on a World Gone Nutty!"Get this: Dads are essential to kids. According to the National Fatherhood Initiative, kids who grow up without dads are more likely to grow up poor, drop out of school, end up in jail and encounter numerous other struggles in life than kids who grow up with dads do. This information comes as no shock to most men. We know that boys are prone to stupidity and that the creature best suited to taming them is the like-minded...

    Today would be my father's 90th birthday. Dad was born on June 13, 1924. Friends kidded him all his life about being born on a Friday the 13th. He died when I was in college, and I especially miss him on Father's Day. If he were alive today, I would thank him for teaching me that family is my highest privilege and responsibility, and for loving us so unconditionally. My dad would have agreed with the 75 percent of fathers who say that being adad is their most important job. Sixty-one percent say they are more involved with their children...

    When I was working on my book, ď7 Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness,Ē I thought about the way that our culture has depicted men, specifically fathers, over the past half-century or so. Itís hard to believe today, but one of the iconic television shows of the 1950s was actually called ďFather Knows Best.Ē And believe it or not, the title was not ironic! Jim Anderson, played by Robert Young, really did know best. He was kind, patient, generous and firm when he needed to be. As the saying goes, that was then and this is, well, not then....

    Chelsea Clinton, who grew up in a White House dogged by scandal but one that also protected her from the media's spotlight, credits her dad's "words and even more his actions" for teaching her right and wrong. In a touching Fatherís Day message that is part of a worldwide campaign to put the focus on men whoíve nurtured their daughters, Chelsea Clinton said he helped guide her effort to make an impact on the world. ďIt is impossible for me to describe the extent to which my father has supported me, nurtured me and empowered me over the years,Ē she...

    I'm not out to put down any other team, just share a story. As a little girl growing up near Syracuse, I became a huge basketball and football fan. My Dad was a huge fan and if we weren't at the game, we had the radio on and the TV turned down. If there were more then just he and I watching a game, we each had our Walkmans on to listen to the local guys, especially during football season, because they didn't bother trying to explain the rules of the game to those that just tuned in to "the...

    President Obamaís gun gaffe was nearly lost in the pre-Christmas flood of TV and internet chatter. But Breitbartís Joel Pollak was right to highlight Mr. Obamaís bizarre post-election statement. One of the reasons he ran for re-election, Mr. Obama told Barbara Walters, was so he could have ďmen with guns aroundĒ as his daughters entered their teen years. What a gaffe! We need to focus on that comment now, especially in light of his bromides about fathers in his Fatherís Day message. Mr. Obama last week issued a typical Fatherís Day Proclamation leading up to the weekend. In it, he...
