MARKETTA GREGORY: The heartbeat of God - I found out by accident that my first son knew my heartbeat. He started to cry a few hours after he was born, and I picked him up and happened to rest his head near my heart. Within seconds Benjamin calmed down and was comforted by the familiar thump, thump, thump. By Marketta Gregory, GHNS.

STAY TUNED: What's your TV addiction? - I had a friend in college who would literally not speak to you if you called her when “Seinfeld” was on. My mom will sweetly tell me she can't talk if I phone during “Dancing with the Stars,” ditto for my sister if she's watching an episode of “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette.” Show addictions — if you love television, you probably have one. Mine is worse than most. Unlike my family and friends, I am not obsessed with a single program. My name is Melissa. And I'm addicted to property shows. By Melissa Crawley, GHNS.

GRANLUND CARTOON: Romney’s ‘binders full of women.’ By Dave Granlund, GHNS.

EDITORIAL: President Obama regains debate footing - It was a tale of two debates in one on Tuesday night. Early on, when the subjects were the economy and White House energy policy, Republican challenger Mitt Romney was at his best. Forgive those Americans who concluded at that point that Romney is simply the more competent debater. Ultimately he would crisply encapsulate his thinking in one paragraph: "We don't have to settle for what we're going through. We don't have to settle for gasoline at four bucks. We don't have to settle for unemployment at a chronically high level. We don't have to settle for 47 million people on food stamps. We don't have to settle for 50 percent of kids coming out of college not able to get work. We don't have to settle for 23 million people struggling to find a good job. If I become president, I'll get America working again." By Peoria, Ill.

KENT BUSH: The show must go on, but does that mean Honey Boo Boo, too? - Many states followed the recommendation of the Continental Congress and passed laws forbidding circuses and theater presentations. It was a move of austerity during the country’s removal of ties from British colonialists. Many of you modern-day Americans will see this as an unnecessary regulation. But leaving this resolution in place would have prevented two of the most tragic events in American history. President Abraham Lincoln was shot and killed while attending a play. And it would have prevented the rise of Honey Boo Boo. If this law had remained in effect, I wouldn’t have accidentally stopped my wandering eyes on the pint-sized pageant princess’ “reality” show and continued watching like a moth drawn to a porch light. By Kent Bush, Augusta, Kan.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NATION: LSU not done yet - And so one week after being left for dead, after the Tigers beat No. 3 South Carolina 23-21 before more than 92,000 strong on Saturday night in Death Valley, the rest of us realize LSU is very much alive, very much still a contender for the national championship, a potential third for the school in 10 years.
