Pick of the day
America can excel only if our politicians give a priority to long-range planning instead of their next election. Don't hold your breath.
Our mood music
What would Columbus be without a couple of shootings every night?
Never miss a local story.
The case for home rule
The closer to a problem the more easily solved. Hence, individual states do have the power and responsibility to make decisions for themselves.
Nod if you agree
After watching the CNN interview, does anyone else think Hillary would be the perfect bobblehead doll?
He got this one right
As an older, Southern white male, I disagree with the opinions of Leonard Pitts more often than I agree. But his commentary on Bill Cosby was spot on.
Life and death in the Peach State
16-year-old Atlanta girl shot to death by brother. 16-year-old College Park girl killed by stray bullet inside her home. Shots fired into 15-year old Columbus girl's bedroom. Just another day in Georgia.
I was surprised to learn that one-third of our Mexican border has been fenced. Finishing the remainder while people argue about amnesty for another 15 years would solve the source of the problem.
Just which Georgians would be 'free'?
If states ban homosexual marriage, illegal immigration, late abortion, etc., the federal government has no constitutional right to punish them. If the South had won, Georgia would still be free.
If the label fits
Columbus is holding a "name the new trail" contest. Judging by this morning's headline, I suggest "Trail of Fears."
