The stuff stupid dreams are made of

Ever had a stupid dream? Perhaps the better question would be, have you ever had a dream with a logical sequence of events? I'm betting stupid wins out.

Time for football, is your latte ready?

Football players do not wear "man capri pants." And, if the skintight "not capri pants" happen to be white, those certainly are not "panty lines" you see encircling the players' backsides. Or so I recently was told by my football fanatic husband, who tried - in vain - to teach me the rules of the game.

No I'm not ready for some football

Football players do not wear "man capri pants." And, if the skintight "not capri pants" happen to be white, those certainly are not "panty lines" you see encircling the players' backsides. Or so I recently was told by my football fanatic husband, who tried - in vein - to teach me the rules of the game.

Ground Zero is no place for mosque

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is some sort of bigot. In a speech about the ground zero mosque and religious freedom, Bloomberg stipulated that "it is fair to ask the organizers of the mosque to show some special sensitivity to the situation."

Cancer books a summer gig in Darien

On July 19, I had a dentist appointment to get my teeth cleaned. I go every three months because my gums are bad from childhood neglect, plus I like going to see Erica, my hygienist. She laughs at all of my jokes. Also, I like having clean and shiny teeth, unlike some of my Flounder Creek brethren who prefer a dull shade of green.

Scientists, downside of science

Reporters and commentators frequently cite scientists as support for positions. In headlines, scientists assess disasters ("Scientists say Gulf spill is way worse than estimated"), bolster environmental actions ("Scientists say mountaintop mining should be stopped") even to make the obvious official ("Drought grips some of Harris County, scientists say").

Candidates' antics likely scared voters

Thankfully, the name calling and mudslinging that presented itself as a runoff is over and done with. After a race that sank state politics to some pretty low places, Republican Nathan Deal narrowly edged out fellow GOP member Karen Handel to win the right to face Democrat Roy Barnes in November.

Even squirrels know it's too hot

I love the state of Georgia better than apple butter, but sometimes the place can try my patience. Like right now. It is just too hot.

EPA just making a power grab

According to the Federal Register, on Dec. 7, 2009, the Environmental Protection Agency "found" that current and projected concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere threaten the public health and welfare of current and future generations. Unfortunately, this finding and the EPA's subsequent action threaten the health and welfare of current and future generations of Georgians far more than greenhouse gases do.

Memories of hot pink luggage

Some missing something or the other required me to prowl through closets at Mama's house. That's when I found it. I pulled it out and smiled broadly, warmed by the memories it evoked.

EPA’s clean power proposal is vital

Many objections are being raised about EPA's proposal to cut CO2 emissions by as much as 30 percent by 2030. Such resistance is predictable, reactionary, and completely unjustified.

Stormwater is good rain gone wild

I love a good rainstorm - I always have. My mother used to check the weather forecast for thunderstorms because I was fascinated by them and wanted to watch them outside. However, it's not really a good idea to sit outside during a thunderstorm.

Trying to determin who is the real outsider in race

The U.S. Senate race this November between Democrat Michelle Nunn and Republican David Perdue will be one of the more unusual campaigns we have witnessed in Georgia. Neither has held public office, and both are anxious to portray themselves as the ultimate "outsider."
