Crawford: Field is nearly set for 2010 race

King: Science, faith at odds, but why?

Have you ever had two friends - or relatives perhaps, people you really cared about - who simply couldn't get along with each other, two people who seemed determined to misunderstand and misinterpret everything the other said? Sad, isn't it?

Glazer: Bullies’ cruelty fades, but the memories never do

I've been writing community columns for the Times for more than eight years. Some pieces seem to write themselves. I pour a cup of coffee, sit down with the laptop and an hour or two later I have a community column to zap over to The Times.

Crawford: Georgia's changing landscape may affect 2010 vote

Out of the many e-mails that were zinging around Georgia's political community last week, one in particular caught my eye.

Shipp: Athens shooting tragedy reflects Southern gun culture

Three people were shot to death Saturday in Athens, and three others were wounded. A UGA professor was being sought as the killer. I was mildly surprised to hear the news before I switched the TV to "Cops" to watch the San Diego police collar hapless derelicts.

Yarbrough: We need Zell to straighten it all out

Shipp: Perdue’s backing gives Handel an edge

Nichols: Piracy still is hard to control on open seas

A country has sovereign powers to govern by law the land of its territory, the airspace above that land, and the seas along its coasts out to a limit of 12 nautical miles. Earlier the sea limits were set at three nautical miles because that was the distance a cannon on the beach could fire.

Thomas: Sweet TEA parties were taxpayers’ way of saying ‘enough!’

"The sum of good government," said Thomas Jefferson in his first inaugural address, is "A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned (emphasis mine)."

Yarbrough: Thoughts on furloughs, tax cheats and Tommy the Barber
