Two new voices are coming to the Commentary Page beginning next week. On alternating Thursdays, two stimulating and challenging writers will speak out on what's happening in the world today. On Thursday, Nov. 1, George Curry will debut with his column, "Beyond the Spin. " Curry is a widely published columnist, as well as former editor-in-chief of the National Newspaper Publishers Association News Service and BlackPressUSA.com. From 1993 to 2000, he was editor of Emerge magazine, and he previously was a reporter and editor with the Chicago Tribune, Sports Illustrated, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

RICK SANTORUM's recent comments calling into question the president's religious convictions as phony, pronouncing that education should be out of the realm of all government, calling birth control an excuse for lascivious activity and deeming amniocentesis as a means to identify disabled children so we can cull them from the population show what we here have always known: Santorum is a one-trick pony who wants to be Preacher-in-Chief. Even Republicans are distraught at this loose cannon and that he may win this thing.

When the U.S. Senate begins debate this month on a bill banning a controversial late-term abortion procedure, Sen. Rick Santorum (R., Pa.) will passionately argue for its passage, as he did last year. Only his family and close friends know how personal the issue has become for him in the intervening months. In the fall, Santorum, the leading proponent of barring the procedure - termed "partial-birth abortion" by its foes - was within hours of having to decide whether to use an abortion to save the life of his wife, Karen Garver Santorum, who was in her fifth month of pregnancy.

AFTER SEEING his recent lively TV ads, Sen. Rick Santorum, frequently derided by his political opponents as a frothing pit bull of right-wing nuttery, is starting to look calm and reasonable and, dare we say it, electable. We're hoping that Mr. Casey's sliding poll numbers might prompt our governor, whose own re-election race seems virtually over against the fumbling Lynn Swann, to take time off from praising Santorum and lend his struggling teammate a real hand. Rumor has it that Big Ed has promised to raise big money (with an assist from Big Bill Clinton later in the fall)

IF THERE'S any justice in the world, Trent Lott may soon have a new seat mate in the back bench of the U.S. Senate: Pennsylvania's own Rick Santorum. The junior senator has earned the wrath of moderate Republicans and Democrats for comments comparing homosexuality to incest, bigamy, polygamy and adultery made during an interview with the Associated Press. When he complained about the news report being "misleading," the AP released transcripts of the interview in which Santorum said "I have a problem with homosexual acts.

A headline Friday on the "Philly Pharma" blog incorrectly identified which hospitals in the Thomas Jefferson University system made billing errors resulting in overpayments by Medicare. The errors were made by Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience. A story Friday on the presidential primary race in Pennsylvania wrongly described the stand of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network in Rick Santorum's 2006 Senate campaign. While many members of the group supported Santorum, the organization took no official stance.

WASHINGTON - The ill daughter of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been taken to the hospital. Santorum's campaign said Friday that 3-year-old Bella had been returned to the hospital. She has the rare genetic condition Trisomy 18 and was hospitalized earlier this year with pneumonia, prompting Santorum to take a campaign break before the Florida primary. The campaign did not identify the hospital or say why her parents took Bella there. Spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a written statement, "The family requests prayers and privacy as Bella works her way to recovery.

LET'S TALK ABOUT two who'll never be president: Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee. Both show up in a Quinnipiac poll released yesterday. Both trail Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania by 20 points. And that's because, if you listen to them lately, both still play to states that run north/south in the middle of the country. I know polling for a race a year away is mostly a test of name ID. I don't buy the inevitability of Hillary in 2016 just as I didn't in 2008. But two things I'm fairly certain of: Candidates with limited regional support can't win the White House; and candidates consistently selling intolerance and self-righteousness shouldn't win the White House.

Official religions lead to oppression Rick Santorum is partly right: The First Amendment is meant to protect religious organizations from government oppression and intrusion. However, he misses the main point. In Europe, the place our founders fled, the true villains were governments sponsored and controlled by a single church (usually the one Santorum belongs to), which, in turn, oppressed all the other religions in their nations. An established, official government religion leads inevitably to intolerance, oppression, and even worse for persons who profess the wrong confession.
