Oglesby: One GOP leader shows he can deliver

Far too much on both sides of the aisle has been made of S.C. Rep. Joe Wilson's intemperate outburst at the joint session of Congress. As he should have, he apologized to the president.

Crawford: GSU's Curry supplies missing ingredient

Georgia State University seems to have everything going for it: the second-largest enrollment of any state college, a campus that is revitalizing downtown Atlanta with all the new buildings going up, and a sterling reputation as one of the University System's four research institutions (a status it shares with UGA, Georgia Tech and the Medical College of Georgia).

Oglesby: GOP should follow Kennedy’s lead

King: Movies may reflect society’s psyche

I love movies. I've loved them since my parents took me to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. I was 5 years old and hid under the seat during the scary parts. In my teens, when others went to Saturday football games, I could be found at the local cinema.
