Letter: Iran giveaway, presidential race show why US is headed awry

I believe most would agree that something very wrong is going on; our society and our nation is going straight to hell in a handbasket. I don't see any significant evidence of real outrage on the part of Americans or the people we elect to go to Washington to represent our interests.

Tom Crawford: Some people keep fighting the Civil War

You may have the impression that the Civil War ended sometime around 1865, after the Confederate armies stacked their weapons, the soldiers returned to their homes, and the Southern states were re-admitted back into the Union.

Letter: If housing, income are your problem, vote for the right solutions

If you are over 40 you should already know what I'm about to say. If you are under 40, hopefully this will help you stop worrying about what you read in The Times over the past week about people having a real problem finding a place to live that they can afford.

Letter: Vengeance is no reason to punish some who pose no threat to us

A few years ago, a friend committed a crime. He deserved punishment, but there were extenuating circumstances: He was weathering three personal tragedies, continuous pain from severe scoliosis, drank alcohol to relieve some of the pain and overreacted to a perceived threat to his children.

Guest column: A new year, but the same old Corps of Engineers

It's not unusual for a new year to usher in new rules, regulations, and laws that can impact the way we live our lives. What's unusual, and upsetting, is when these changes are made with no public input or little advance notice.

Letter: Income equality’s ‘free lunch’ would kill all incentive to strive, succeed

In days gone by farmers would use a long stick with a carrot hanging on a string to entice their mule to pull their cart to market. They would dangle the carrot a few inches in front of the mule, just out of reach, and the mule would keep walking toward it attempting to taste success in reaching the goal.

Letter: Real education reform should address overpaid administrators

I keep reading about the governor's education reform committee. It would appear there is no reform, only an increase in teacher's pay. I am reminded that the largest single block of voters in Georgia is that group of people employed by state and local education systems.

Letter: Story on nuclear mistakes is evidence of the dangers we face

I was pleased to see the Associated Press account of the Air Force's most recent nuclear screwup Sunday in The Times. The same report appeared in the Atlanta papers, so I imagine it appeared in all the major newspapers around the nation.

Tom Crawford: Who will win fight for ‘freedom' under Gold Dome?

This is a fight over "freedom" that legislators don't really need. It's a fight they could have avoided. But it seems to be a fight they are destined to have.
