Man of many talents
“Now Thomas Sowell is an expert on the role of genetics versus environment in IQ scores and has conducted scientific studies of the subject. The last I heard, he was also an economics expert. He is apparently a man of many talents. Just ask him.”
“A senior worries about being denied health coverage because of advanced age. To my knowledge, there is no upper age limit applied to Medicare. Such a limit would be a bad cruelty joke. Find something else to worry about.”
“Thanks to Dwain Walden for his article about the absurdity of the talk about secession. With the exception of the Tea Party, we are all probably agreed that such talk is, in fact, absurd. We need a strong, unified nation rather than a diverse bunch of small banana republics.”
“In his e-mail, Saxby Chambliss opposes tax increases to cover "reckless spending" by government. He has been a member of the Congress that approved that reckless spending for many years and rubber-stamped whatever George Bush asked for. Now that the President is from the other party, Chambliss gets all frugal on us. This is just another example of the partisan politics that will run this country into the ground if it's not already there.”

Send the snipers to the unemployment line
Snipers. They’re everywhere. You turn this way, and PING! You’re hit. You turn that way and ZIP! A near miss.
This Tuesday, we decided to focus our front page coverage of the Monday night City Council meeting on the retirement of council member Marianna Keesee. That meeting was her last one, and we felt that after her years of service, both on the council and in the community, she deserved the front page. Someone even said that in a rant we received Tuesday morning.

Letter to the Editor – Coordinators thank relay centers, volunteers
We would like to thank everyone who packed a shoebox, donated money for shipping a shoebox, or volunteered at a relay center or collection center in our area this year. Thanks to your generosity, 15,678 children around the world will not only receive a shoebox with items they need, but will also have the opportunity to hear about the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ.
