  • Moore not yet conceding in Alabama Senate race

    Democrat Doug Jones won Alabama's special Senate election on Tuesday, beating back history, an embattled Republican opponent and President Donald Trump, who urgently endorsed GOP rebel Roy Moore despite a litany of sexual misconduct allegations. Moore, meanwhile, refused to concede and raised the possibility of a recount during a brief appearance at a sombre campaign party in Montgomery. "It's not over," Moore said. He added, "We know that God is still in control."

Ah, good old-fashioned hate wins the day in Alabama

But an interesting thing happened. Nearly 23,000 people — or 1.7 percent of Alabama voters — wrote in somebody else’s name, which means they voted against Roy Moore. They couldn’t and wouldn’t approve of his alleged behavior. But they had a problem: They hate Democrats. Which is why they wrote in somebody besides Doug Jones.

No, you shouldn’t compare football to war — ever

The troops marched between a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, which bears the names of 58,318 fallen soldiers, and the new national memorial to the Global War on Terrorism, which bears the names of 6,915 more fallen and will be dedicated Monday morning. Watching them, I thought how people frequently compare football to war. Coaches and players at all levels talk about “going to war” or having a “warrior mentality” or even “being a soldier.”

Actual thoughts and prayers beat social media equivalents

Nobody minded all the thoughts and prayers being offered to Petty and his family. It was different earlier in the day, when we woke to news of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Regular folks went to Twitter to send thoughts and prayers to Las Vegas. That was fine. A bunch of sports stars and other celebrities did the same, and that was OK too.

Ken Burns’ Vietnam documentary features interesting halftime show

As individuals, we still don’t agree with each other, but we value unity. Which brings us to last weekend’s intermission in the middle of the Vietnam documentary “The Vietnam War” by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. NFL teams stood, or kneeled and stood, or kneeled then stood. Some were protesting the treatment of black males by police, some were protesting Trump, others were protesting the protesting.

OK, so maybe I don’t want to be an empty nester after all

I thought I wanted to be an empty nester. Then I looked in the rear view window. For years, Bess has been saying she dreads the day when the last of our four children leaves home, and I’ve been saying that I can’t wait. Last weekend, we took two of our children back to the University of Georgia, where our oldest son is now a sophomore and our daughter a senior.
