Welcome to "In All Things"

Welcome to "In All Things," the new editorial blog from America magazine. Inspired by the magazine’s popular, "Of Many Things" column, our new group blog will feature daily commentary from the magazine’s editors and writers on a variety of topics, from politics to sports, from issues of bioethics to what’s good on TV. In today’s media climate, even a weekly magazine cannot keep up with the rapid pace of the news, so it is our hope that "In All Things" can help bring America’s unique perspective to the issues of the day in a timely way. Among our distinguished contributors are author and editor Robert Ellsberg, death penalty critic Sister Helen Prejean and sociologist John Coleman, S.J. They will be joined by our esteemed group of editors, including editor in chief Drew Christiansen, S.J. and James Martin, S.J., author of My Life with the Saints. Here is our full list of Bloggers. It is our hope that our blog will not be a one-way conversation, but a place where our readers can offer their own perspective on the subjects that America has always been passionate about: what it means to be a citizen in today’s political world; what the arts can tell us about the human condition; and how we can best serve the church. We hope you will post your thoughts in the comments boxes below. Thank you for interest in "In All Things"--please visit again soon. Tim Reidy, Online Editor

I have been reading Catholic magazines since about 1946, when Victorian (from Lackawanna) carried really humorous cartoons. In my later years, I find myself first turning to the letters' section in any periodical. That is why the scarcity of comments on America Magazine's website bothers me. I don't know the answer, but I hope your writing generates more discussion. As for the print version of America, just in the past year an editor explained that only a few letters (of many received) could be printed. Again, I am puzzled.
