Who is Cynthia Tucker?

By   /  November 12, 2009  /  Ted Anderson  /   Comments

Tweet Every week, I read Cynthia Tucker’s articles and I wonder, just who IS this person? Without fail, at least every article I have read, she bashes us Republicans. Cynthia is obviously a very intelligent person, but she has this chip on her shoulder about Republicans and it is really getting on my nerves. I [...]

By   /  November 12, 2009  /  Politics  /   Comments

Tweet According to a report on WALB, U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop shows just how much of a hypocrite he really is. He is quoted as saying, “I had to ask myself, ‘What would Jesus do?’” This is a man who votes for a hate crime bill that hurts pastors in what they can say, a [...]

By   /  November 12, 2009  /  Tom Knighton  /   Comments

Tweet Just a day after Christopher Pike handily won the Ward 3 seat, Commissioner Tommie Postell wants to ignore the city charter (Well, I think he just wants to amend it, but the effect will be the same) by blocking him taking the title of mayor pro tempore.

Police don’t shoot to kill

By   /  November 12, 2009  /  Tom Knighton  /   Comments

Tweet In last week’s week’s Albany Journal, in the “WhatchaSay Albany?” section, there is some discussion regarding a police officer not “shooting to kill”. I wanted to address this a bit, as I feel I’m somewhat qualified to do so. There is a lot of misinformation out there about police and the term “shoot to [...]

Going where the world is

By   /  November 12, 2009  /  Faith  /   Comments

Tweet This Halloween costume was his idea. It was the day of Halloween and he still didn’t know if he was going to go. We know what Halloween is about. Then he told me of his idea. My first thought was something that I was to hear repeated several times during the night. “That’s never [...]

Encouragement in Ward 3

By   /  November 12, 2009  /  Jim Wilcox  /   Comments

Tweet As we watched newcomer Christopher Pike easily defeat Arthur Williams in a landslide, it is encouraging that what also won, was Pike’s positive approach to the campaign. He ran on his ideas for future progress and cooperation, not dwelling in the past combative, and divisive approach Williams was known for. Pike also would not [...]
