Tweet It hasn’t been all that long ago.  On multiple occasions, the people of Southwest Georgia counted on help from across the nation as we rebuilt from floods and tornadoes alike.  Nameless and faceless people from all parts of this nation sent what they could because we, the people of Southwest Georgia, needed it.  It [...]

Tweet A terrorist attack, a young baby in the house, and now a deadly toxin sent to a member of Congress.  Am I talking about this week, or am I talking about 2001? Maybe a bit of both.

Tweet An eight year old boy was among the three killed yesterday when a bomb scarred the face of the Boston Marathon.  Tomorrow, we will all probably point fingers at each other about who is responsible for the environment that lead to this, but today we all just plain hurt.

Tweet Here in Albany, most folks probably realize that there are two incarnations of the Chehaw Indian Festival.  The old one was huge, with Native Americans dancing for prizes and drawing them from all across the country.  Cars would be backed up forever it would seem with people trying to get into the park.

Tweet Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss both voted to allow the latest abomination of gun control legislation to move forward in the senate.  For some folks, this isn’t a big deal.  For me, it’s an absolute betrayal of the Constitution.

Background check compromise a waste of time

Tweet Two Senators, one a Democrat and one a Republican, think they have a compromise on background checks that will move forward.  It’s just to bad this is more about passing legislation than about accomplishing a blasted thing. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Penn) and Joe Manchin (D- WV) trotted out their proposal and hope it will [...]

Tweet Senator Johnny Isakson thinks the Senate should vote on gun control legislation and refuses to support a proposed filibuster that would block any such measures.  He’s been all over television saying that there should be a vote. Oh, he’s reportedly telling constituents that he doesn’t support the bill, but he’s also apparently leaving out [...]

Tweet Yesterday, we learned about the passing of Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister of England.  This is a woman who, along with Ronald Reagan, brought the mighty Soviet Union to its knees.  She was an ardent defender of the free market.  She was a great many wonderful things.

Tweet Good customer service is a problem here in Albany.  There’s no other way to cut it.  Some folks just don’t understand the realities of business, and the result is crappy customer service.  However, someone in this town gets it right.

Some things shouldn’t even be considered

Tweet The building at the skate park sits vacant.  Perhaps that is a better option than to lease it for a measly $5 a year that a local fraternity is offering.  Seriously, this is absolutely a pathetic offer and the fact that ADICA is even considering it is troublesome at least.
