Your Views: Mexico should not apply a double standard on its borders

I read in your paper about the crisis on our border with Mexico. It is clear Mexico looks the other way when immigrants cross its southern border and enter the United States. I lived in south Texas for 20 years and their security is a joke. They are the most corrupt in the world.

Your Views: Automated essay scoring could lead to high-tech ways to fool it

As a writing teacher at UNG, I spend a great deal of time during the summer and into August thinking about the incoming group of students I will be closely working with during the fall semester.

It is beyond my understanding the disagreement going on between Blue Cross Blue Shield Georgia and Northeast Georgia Health System.

I could also see how difficult it was for him to deal with many difficult custody cases. I would not want to have that responsibility for any amount of money.
