I stopped by Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle's office the other day to talk about what's going on in the state these days. I found him refreshingly candid.
I was watching the news recently and Pat Buchanan was debating Professor Eric Dyson, an African-American, about comments made by Attorney General Eric Holder who cited that we are "cowards" when it comes to race relations in America.
Sen. Johnny Isakson has many things going for him as he gets his campaign under way for another six-year term in the U.S. Senate.
A bill now before the Georgia House of Representatives would provide the long-term benefits of nuclear power to the state of Georgia, as well as specific savings to Georgia Power customers on the proposed construction of two new units at Plant Vogtle.
This is a one-question quiz on Georgia government. Only Gov. Sonny Perdue knows the right answer. Pay attention.
"You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."
Is the economic crisis in the United States today similar to that of Weimar Germany in the 1920s?
Vision 2030: The Future is Ours to See.
How would you like to work in a business with 236 CEOs telling you what to do, but with only a few having the foggiest notion what your job entails and no responsibility for what happens?
I bought my first truck about a year ago. Up until then, I'd owned just about every kind of vehicle except a truck. And a Hummer.
Shirley Almer, an elderly Minnesota woman, had managed to live through lung cancer and a brain tumor before she died on Dec. 21. Cause of death: salmonella poisoning linked to food products from a Peanut Corporation of America plant in Blakely.
Georgia's 9th District U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal usually doesn't make ripples in Washington. So when he came out of his shell the other day to defend the peanut before Congress, he made news. He told a House committee hearing on the recent Georgia peanut scandal that he often ate raw peanuts and suffered no ill effects.
Were a Hall County Olympic athlete to bring home two national gold medals and an international silver in three years, we'd be hoarse from bragging about it. Nonathletic accomplishments get less attention.
Hall County will soon vote on SPLOST VI in a referendum that directly impacts an often unseen but vital component of community well-being: public health services.
It's time for a little perspective on President Barack Obama's stimulus bill. Do you have any idea just how much a billion dollars is?
If you had told me a year ago that Gov. Nathan Deal would essentially be tied at this point in his re-election campaign with an inexperienced Democratic legislator, I would have asked if you were smoking some of that stuff that is now legally on sale in Colorado.

I have one of the most interesting jobs in the world. One day I am advising world leaders on the nuances of international monetary policy. The next day I am consoling a distraught reader who thinks I need to "look within myself spiritually."
Over the past 10 years, Georgia has served as the location for a wide-ranging experiment in economic theory.
Until I heard her speak at a benefit luncheon, I thought Ronda Rich was a bit of an empty-headed lightweight. I was wrong, wrong, wrong, and she has become one of my must-read columnists.
The Woman Who Shares My Name instructed me that this week's column was to be about positive things. She says she is tired of bad news and thought you felt the same way.
I don't pay a lot of attention to football. Even though I was a proud Red Elephant during the heyday of Bobby Gruhn and Tommy West, I just never caught the fever. Four years at the University of Alabama during the reign of Bear Bryant did nothing to pique my interest. Since I married a man whose football apathy mirrored my own, there was never an incentive to learn or follow the game.
