Economic blame game
“Why do Georgia’s Republicans, to hear them tell it the party of personal liberty and personal responsibility, blame Georgia’s economic woes on Pres. Obama, not Georgia’s General Assembly? I think the GA GOP would have us believe the tides are caused by the sun, the wind, and the rotation of the earth, not the moon.”
Can’t legislate it
“Legislating special treatment for wealthy people is like legislating special treatment for people who are well-dressed and physically attractive. Everyone knows they already receive a lot of special treatment. When casting around for great ideas that will change Georgia for the better, how would special treatment for the wealthy ever get on the agenda? Millionaire lawmakers?”
Talk is ridiculous
“The talk of the states seceding is ridiculous. If those states did secede, they would have to form their own military, get a passport to cross into the U.S. and, to top it off, all of the state officials in Washington D.C would be dismissed immediately. There would be ‘no fly zones’ and such. I can't believe this talk is actually still going on.”
Chaos at the shop
“Black Friday chaos has proven once again that the common man has no common sense. Our country continues its downward slide with ignorance increasing and civility becoming a thing of the past. As waist sizes explode, IQs tank.”

Students aren't blueberries
Dear Public School Teachers in Georgia: It looks as if you have survived another year of underwhelming support from state legislators, many of whom would kiss a tree toad if so instructed by the anti-public education crowd. I know it is frustrating but as my daddy used to say, consider the source.

You knew this was going to be a special season.From the season-opener, a 7-5 win over Crisp County and UGA signee Robert Tyler, to the very last pitch in Marietta May 15, the Tift County baseball team took us on a great journey that reached even further than on the baseball field for me.
May 21 Column – George F. Will
Leaving aside the seriousness of lawlessness, and the corruption of our civic culture by the professionally pious, this past week has been amusing. There was the spectacle of advocates of an ever-larger regulatory government expressing shock about such government's large capacity for misbehavior. And, entertainingly, the answer to the question "Will Barack Obama's scandals derail his second-term agenda?" was a question: What agenda?

Letter to the Editor for May 15
As a grandson of Henry Harding Tift and a long-time resident of Tift County, I would like to tip my hat to Edd Dorminey for the pivotal role he played in petitioning the state legislature to officially recognize the original intent that Tift County be named in honor of Capt. Tift.
A day late and a dollar short...sort of
I caught a lot of flack the past couple of days because, and I quote, “You write a column and you didn’t write about your mom for Mothers Day?”Yeah. Um. Just yeah.
