My two visits to Georgia with students during the Cold War days do not make me an expert on that country. But I do have very fond memories of what I learned from the Georgian people I met.
It never fails. Just let me say one nice thing about the great state of Georgia and I get letters from people who, (a) live in the state but, (b) are originally from a state north of the Mason-Dixon Line that, (c) they think is better than the state in which they now reside.
"I'm trying to save the planet; I'm trying to save the planet." The summer heat, caused of course by man-made global warming, must be causing Nancy Pelosi to repeat herself. I wonder if she was wearing a pair of red slippers and kicking her heals together during her plea.
It's time to keep one eye on your bank account and another on our friends at the state Capitol.
Friday was not a good day. I was stuck in the house waiting for a repairman who was scheduled to arrive "between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m," if a missing part could be found.
This morning I put a newspaper clipping about my daughter in the family scrapbook. Actually, scrapbook is a pretty glorified title for what we have. It's really just a binder that contains any piece of newsprint with the name of one of the Glazers on it. It has always been my intention to someday organize it into volumes dedicated to each family member.
The other day, my 8-year-old asked me if she could have her own cell phone. Hardly a moral crisis, to be sure, but it did knock me back a step since our typical conversations center around the identification of characters in Disney TV shows that should not be imitated when speaking to adults.
Questions from several friends relatively new to Hall County about my dual role as journalist and political activist prompted the first part of this column. I seldom respond in this space to letters to the editor. But in keeping with my philosophy of full disclosure so readers will know where I'm coming from, I felt this was necessary.
Bennie Fowler represents everything that is good about this country, so it is not surprising that American-headquartered Ford Motor Co. has him in a key position to help the company in its turnaround efforts.
The other morning I woke up early, splashed awake by a wave of sadness. At first I couldn't identify where the feeling originated.
It would be difficult to have missed the story last week about the sensational confession from John Edwards that he had an extramarital affair a couple of years ago.
When Gov. Sonny Perdue called in reporters a few weeks ago to discuss the revenue numbers at the end of the state's fiscal year, he tried to be as calm and reassuring as possible.
Of all the political phenomena in Georgia over the last several years, perhaps nothing has been more surprising than the return of our politicians' open disregard for public education and our electorate's acceptance of their attitude and actions.
Potpourri: Today is primary runoff day. Tonight, we'll know Hall County's next clerk of the court and which Democrat will take on U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss.
It was 10 years ago this month that the Atlanta Business Chronicle asked me to write a column giving my view of Atlanta two years after the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. I had been the managing director of communications and government relations for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games and the paper wanted to know how I thought the city had changed after hosting the world. Or had it changed at all? ...
Gov. Nathan Deal was the picture of confidence last week as he presided over the traditional lighting of the state Christmas tree.
It was as ugly as a wart hog, but for the 11th time in the past 12 years, 38th of the past 50 and 65th out of 108, the University of Georgia, the oldest state-chartered university in the nation, located in Athens, the Classic City of the South has bested You-Know-Where Institute of Technology for the State Football Championship, 41-34.
There's an old joke that goes, "a bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don't need it."
