Lots of overlap
“I bet if you matched up the names of those signing petitions to secede, and those who were so gung-ho over the 'birther movement,’ you'd see a lot of overlap!”
“Thank-you to the teachers at the Potter's House for the Thanksgiving feast. The children singing and the decorations were great! So was the food and company!”
Form another group
“Thomas Sowell suggests the formation of an expert group to counter lies told by Democratic political candidates. To be fair, how about the formation of such a group for the Republicans as well? They would have been pretty busy keeping up with Romney and Ryan. Or, how about we just employ non-partisan pundits if we can find one?”
What was he thinking?
“When Bill Clinton left office in 2001, he left this country with a budget surplus that was reducing our deficit each year. Most economist were predicting that the US would be out of debt by 2013. Then comes George W. Bush with his tax cuts and massive borrowing; he vandalizes the future. What was he thinking? This is just a fact and no amount of spin will ever change it.”
Go if you want to
“To those Tea Party ‘Patriots’ who want to secede.....GO. You can leave any time you get ready. This ridiculous talk of secession is childish sour grapes over a lost election. Grow up. We survived Bush.”
“To ‘personal issue’ the government shouldn't intrude into our lives, but it does constantly, and you'll see more of it under Obamacare. As far as using government to force religious views on people, laws designed to prevent you from being murdered have their basis in a ‘religious’ view. Life is sacred and deserves institutional protection, even in the womb.”

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.
