October's over; keep thinking pink

It's easy to think pink in October. During National Breast Cancer awareness month, business and shop owners haul out the pink decor, athletes sport pink uniforms, people everywhere pin pink ribbons to their shirts.

NPR apparently closes its mind

We should have known about Juan Williams long ago. The signs of a simmering bigotry were always there. The political commentator wrote the book "Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965." He followed that up with an admiring biography of Thurgood Marshall. Then, more books on the African-American religious experience, historically black colleges and black farmers.

Superintendent should champion public education

In my house, the contest for state school superintendent is as important as the governor's race. I have a son, son-in-law and now a grandson who are public school teachers and they – and all the other teachers – deserve a draw-a-line-in-the-sand advocate.

Don't flake out on veterans day

Folks!! Voting is a right given to you by this great country of ours. Shame on you if you have excuses not to vote.

Redeployment adjustments are not easy

I remember the day so well - like it was yesterday. The wheels of the 707 jet airliner hit the runway at Sea-Tac Airport that evening in darkness. The sound of silence inside the filled-to-capacity plane was deafening. Literally, you could have heard a pin drop. And then wild hysteria broke out. Shouts of joy filled the cabin as emotion overcame every GI on board. They had been holding back for more than a year.

Vote no on Amendment 1

In 40 years of practicing law, I have never seen such a misleading ballot question or such an unfair proposal as Constitutional Amendment No. 1.

Coastal residents may be a bit behind

The greatest place on earth is the coast. Now, mind you, I love the Georgia coast better than about anywhere I can think of, but we're not the only place on earth with a coast. Every coast has its qualities - good and bad. My coast has it all.

Texas must be doing something right

Texas already looms large in its own imagination. Its elevated self-image didn't need this: More than half of the net new jobs in the U.S. during the past 12 months were created in the Lone Star State.

A rush to educate

"But further, we err, not only in religion but in philosophy likewise, because we do not know or believe 'the scriptures.' The sciences have been compared to a circle of which religion composes a part. To understand any one of them perfectly it is necessary to have some knowledge of them all. Bacon, Boyle and Newton included the scriptures in the inquiries to which their universal geniuses disposed them, and their philosophy was aided by their knowledge in them."

Be part of the process

Unless you spend all your time in a hole in the ground and have been spared the political advertisements of the past few months, it's no great surprise that election time is upon us once again.

Look out for flying mud this political season

Tourist No. 1: What is that awful smell?

Another great festival

Well, the rides are all packed up, the smell of cooking seafood and funnel cake has left the air and the dust in the Midway has finally settled. And just as quickly as it seemed to appear, the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival is over – for now.

Regents face increasing skepticism

The State Board of Regents voted recently to tighten their policies governing illegal immigrant applicants to Georgia colleges and universities, and they did it with little discussion.

Amendment 2 is a vote to save lives

From now through the Nov. 2 election day, you will see and hear a lot about ballot Amendment 2. This is a $10 car tag fee to help fund the formation of a statewide trauma network and stabilize Georgia's trauma care system. Specifically, Georgia voters will be asked to vote "yes" or "no" on the following:

Revenge of the Hillary Clinton voters

Two-thirds of West Virginians approve of the job performance of Gov. Joe Manchin. In ordinary circumstances, that would be enough to get him any promotion he wants. Not in 2010.

Supports Kingston, Carter

Editor: Every decision by voters should be taken very seriously. It's our role as active citizens in this republic. This year, we have rare open seats for the U.S. Senate seat and our coastal Congressional seat. Our home front faces incredible challenges from a weak economy and illegal immigration to a lack of an energy policy and a broken healthcare system. Add to this a volatile world from the middle east to China and Russia and enemies circling America and Israel.
