Pick of the day

I get tired of driving to Phenix City to buy beer on Sunday. It’s a shame and embarrassment that Georgia is one of three states with such an antiquated law.

It’s the law

The people who criticize the police for busting prostitutes are probably the same morons who don’t think DUIs and speeding are against the law.

Is he crazy?

Has Gen. Petraeus lost his mind? No way can a soldier distinguish between a soldier and a Taliban when they both dress alike and look alike.

Probably not for long

Does anyone ever actually listen to what Rush, Sean and Fox say before they make their accusations?

White (hot) Christmas?

Halloween stuff is creeping into the stores and this means that the Christmas season is right around the corner. Please, no jingle bells while it’s still 90 degrees outside.

Au revoir

If France is so great, then please move there.

Taxes are still too high

I just got my property tax bill. Even though it’s lower than last year, it amounts to 11 percent of the gross rent. Columbus Consolidated Government, we can’t afford you.

Great neighborhood, too

Work for the Lord. The pay isn’t much but the retirement plan is out of this world.

Cartels in charge

Illegal drugs can’t be controlled in Mexico when the drug cartels decide who gets arrested and three-fourths of them are let go.

Tickets, not warnings

Those people parked illegally on First Avenue should never have been given warnings. They should have been given tickets just like the public gets.

Let everyone participate

If we can’t agree to bring the boys home, reinstitute the draft so everyone can participate.

Doesn’t seem fair, does it?

If the federal government can pick and choose which laws they want to obey, why can’t the citizens do the same?

Check your mirrors

Don’t do the speed limit in Green Island. It upsets the drivers behind you.
