I have often wondered what it would take to bring this country down short of a military invasion. These are some of the things that came to mind.
In your Jan. 18 edition, Michelle Crawford gives her kudos to Fred Chitwood for his courage in assailing the character of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
In response to Alan Shope's "America, let's embrace our true liberal soul (Jan. 6):"
Kudos to Fred Chitwood for having the courage to write about honoring someone of questionable background with a national holiday while virtually ignoring the birthday of a great American military leader. And congratulations to The Times for having the guts to run his letter.
It seems to me that the portion of their pay that the Mexican immigrants send home, to their own families, in their own villages, is the best foreign aid program that the United States has. No bureaucrat in D.C. or Mexico City intervenes. Women and children get the money. That is good for everyone.
Dear Joan King: You have many detractors, but I am certainly not among them. Yours is a voice of reason in an ocean of insanity. While I do not always agree with you, your points are well thought-out and presented. Keep up the good work. We need you.
Thanks to the generous efforts of Gainesville residents, thousands of hurting children worldwide will have the opportunity to experience the joy of Christmas.
This month we observe the birthday of two famous American men. Since it is no longer politically correct to study truth in history, it is only fair and honest for someone to make a comparison of the two individuals in question. I will make a description and you decide the identity of these two men.
Joan King's column about the "right to choose one's death" published Tuesday was irresponsible and reckless. To say that I was taken aback and disgusted is a gross understatement. Ms. King writes some outrageous articles, but this one topped them all.
Has anyone else noticed a proliferation of news stories about Georgia DOT local road programs and about the T-SPLOST vote upcoming, while at the same time the Georgia Newspaper's Partnership Poll (of what citizens want the Georgia General Assembly to work on this year) put the "Roads and Bridges" category at 2 percent preference?
While the Jan. 5 column, "Stuck in the backward land of Absurdia," was very entertaining, I have a couple of questions for Brandon Givens, the columnist:
My first memory of Ed Jenkins was September 1955, the beginning of our friendship as students at the University of Georgia Law School. I was impressed with his wonderful sense of humor, his down-to-earth personality and we had much in common: Ed a product of the mountains and me, a product of the red clay hills of Madison County and the cotton fields. Neither of us grew up with a silver spoon, as did some of our fellow classmates.
There is an old adage that reads "One half the world doesn't understand the other half and it doesn't matter which half you're in." Nowhere, is that truism more obvious than in the campaign battles of an American presidential election.
Alan Shope in his view, "America, let's embrace our true liberal soul" (Friday) selectively defined the word "liberal" to advance his political view.
The Times on Sunday was a special gift to citizens who try to keep up with actions of elected officials. Please accept my sincere thank you.
In a time where all we hear is how awful the health industry has become - and, just that, an industry - my family would like to acknowledge the nurses and staff at our very own Northeast Georgia Medical Center, especially the third floor cardiac unit.
Age is just a number. When we are kids we use fractions to define our age: 3 , 9 , 15 . Age is merely a state of mind in those lucky enough to still have their minds.
A topic in all aspects of the media: Do we respect the office of the president?
Readers of The Times should appreciate your carrying Tom Crawford's columns, especially now that Crawford has focused on the travesty of the Atlanta Braves moving to Cobb County. As Crawford observes, this brazen looting of the public treasury by the Cobb County commissioners on behalf of Liberty Media is simply breathtaking. These guys will scream all day against socialism, unless the socialism is for their rich friends. Please call Rep. Carl Rogers and ...
