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.
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.
President Barack Obama's ringing statement in favor of the ground zero mosque had a gaping escape clause: He didn't necessarily support the mosque.
If anyone still wonders why newspapers are losing subscribers in droves, Thursday's AJC provided another case study.
Through repeated tours at Fort Benning and eventually serving as its commanding general, I got to know Georgia and Georgians pretty well.

This week, students from across the state of Georgia will begin classes at public and private colleges and universities located within our state.
All of us who live in Bryan County realize that we live in a very unique part of Georgia. Our county is unique in many ways and one of those ways is described in Buddy Sullivan's book on the history of our county entitled "From Beautiful Zion to Red Bird Creek"

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."
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.
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").
The long-awaited reunion finally happened as July came to an end.
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.
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.
This week's poll on bryancountynews.net asks a simple question.
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.
Just when you thought Washington couldn't get any messier, our elected officials in the nation's capital prove it can.
Dear Georgia public-school teachers,
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.
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.
This week I have been attending the Festival of Wisdom & Grace, which is sponsored by the Southeastern Jurisdictional Association of Older Adults. This event is held annually at the Lake Junaluska Conference & Retreat Center in North Carolina.
You are under 16 years old. You and your buddies have a system worked out. Everyone chips in some of their lunch money to buy a pack of cigarettes. There is a designated "keeper of the pack."
Since its inception, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare as it is commonly referred to as, has been dying a slow death.
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.
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."

School starts next week in Bryan County, meaning those big yellow buses will be back out on our streets and highways, carrying our community's most precious cargo, its children.
