Columbus was almost Redbox hot

“Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Redbox, America's leading destination for affordable new release movie and video game rentals, has released its annual findings on the most romantic cities in America,” the news release said. “And guess what… Columbus made the hot list!”

Live. Work. Play. Duck. Cover.

Columbus surely has some old bomb shelters investors can renovate to suit our own vision of America’s ultimate doom. For example, builders here might plug in some extra room for a bar and a large liquor vault.

This is blatant sensationalism

Apparently we’ll be hearing a lot about sensationalism as President Donald Trump takes office, because of that top-secret dossier we can’t talk about because it’s unverified. It’s salacious, outrageous and contagious, and we won’t be a party to it

Tweetstorm warning issued

You don’t want to start sending out a bunch of crazy tweets late at night in the midst of a near emergency. People will start talking about you, and saying you’re crazy, you’ve lost touch with reality, and you’re unfit to be president.

Vow to resolve this spring

Our calendar’s celestial guide is the Earth’s revolution around the sun, but it was not always, as some of us needed many solar years to figure out we aren’t the center of the universe. Some still haven’t caught on.

Spooked by sparking space heaters

We’re using “winter” loosely, right now, as technically it is not winter, yet. Winter begins with the solstice at 5:44 a.m. Wednesday and lasts until the vernal equinox at 6:29 am EDT Monday, March 20.

Thursday will be December 1, 2016, which marks a special milestone here in Muscogee County: It’s when the balance of your property taxes is due, if you didn’t pay the full amount October 1, 2016, when you had to pay at least 40 percent.

Enough election analysis already

You can try changing the TV channel, but it doesn’t help, because the pointless commentary’s everywhere. Even cable networks that have nothing to do with politics seem to fit the same twisted narrative.

Mansplaining Trump to liberal women

“Mansplaining” has a range of descriptions, from erudite, cogent, astute, insightful, charitable and “epiphany,” to trite, arrogant, patronizing, paternalistic, pedantic, infuriating, irretrievably broken and “irreconcilable differences.”

Vote before the wieners run out

Wiener jokes were hot Friday, when the FBI tied Hillary Clinton to the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal the same day the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was in town and footlong hotdogs were on sale at the fair.
