Crawford: Who sacrifices when state budget is cut?

There's no question that state government is facing a real financial crisis, primarily because our legislators and governor adopted a budget that commits Georgia to spending about $2 billion more than the state will collect in tax revenues this year because of the economic slowdown.

Shipp: McCain’s Palin pick is GOP slick

You will never see me write again that the Republican Party is the dumb party. Corrupt maybe, or hypocritical or tobacco roadish, but never dumb.

Oglesby: A look at GOP decisions, here and nationwide

We need to end the controversy over the Hall County GOP executive committee's action against candidate Bob Vass. Nonetheless, a member of that committee asked that I let people know that while the vote was correctly reported as unanimous, the full committee membership was not unanimous.

Nichols: Some major problems await next president

Glazer: Logged on for life; PC keeps links to the past

I'm convinced in each life there are a handful of milestones, junctures at which the decisions we make totally change the direction of our future. Some might be the choice of a trade or college major, the selection of a spouse (both first and subsequent in some cases), electing to have children or not and the adoption of a moral/religious philosophy or the failure to do so.

Guest column: Celebrating China

The pimple of the Beijing Olympics was the endless China-bashing of some Western reporters. Despite the wonderful Chinese hospitality, modern facilities and superb job running the games, many journalists never missed a chance to editorialize about some political gripe.

Crawford: Court ruling could impact state school funding

In a small courtroom tucked high inside the Fulton County courthouse, a trial will be held in October before a retired judge who will hear the arguments, sift through the evidence, and eventually issue a verdict (no jury is involved in this case).

King: Politics keeps us short-sighted

Human nature has changed little over time, but human behavior has. We no longer burn heretics at the stake or torture animals for sport ... well, not the way we did in the past. At least today we pay lip service to social justice and the rule of law.
