Hey, boys and girls! What time is it? It's time for Answer Man! The show where we delve into inquiring minds and show you how little is on ours.

Letter: Church service for racial healing was long overdue

I was so pleased to read the story on racial unity featured in The Times on July 17 (Traditionally white, black churches' joint service shows 'what kingdom of God looks like')

Letter: Effort to end violence, learning to live together begins with empathy

Have you ever heard the old saying if you took all the money in the world and divided it up equally in less than 10 years the money would revert back to the way it was before the distribution? I often wonder what would happen if the white race suddenly became black and black race became white?

Tom Crawford: The political parties’ big parties are worth skipping

You can understand why people were reluctant to attend the Republican national convention in Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena this week, or for that matter the Democratic convention coming up in Philadelphia next week.

Letter: There’s no cause to celebrate this failed president

I greatly disagree with Dick Meyer's "give thanks for Obama" tribute and suspect at least 60 percent or more of Americans do. I feel he has greatly overestimated any success he attributes to Obama.

Dick Yarbrough: It’s time to lower rhetoric, start healing in world gone mad

Letter: Franklin offered valuable lesson on open-minded rhetoric

Even a casual observation of current events would confirm that American citizens have become more polarized in thought and rhetoric than we could have imagined a decade ago. With anger that often approaches hostility, groups are set against groups, with members of each group vowing 100 percent ownership of the truth. Opinions are becoming more solidified than Stone Mountain.

Letter: Quest for tourism money is ruining Chattahoochee River habitat

The love of money destroys the beauty and peace of our rivers. It is such a sad commentary to the people of Helen, Robertstown and White County that the almighty dollar means more to them than the health and well-being of the beautiful Chattahoochee River.

Letter: Nation must join in love to end violence

Once again, I find myself unable to remain silent amid the violence perpetrating itself upon innocent people. The massacre of the Emmanuel Nine in church Bible study in Charleston, S.C., on June 17, 2015; 49 in Orlando, Fla., at a nightclub June 12; and in July, in Minnesota, Louisiana and California, all further widen the bleeding wound in the nation's history.

Tom Crawford: Metro Atlanta town going down a grassy slope

When Mayor Ted Terry talks about the recent decision by him and the Clarkston City Council to dramatically reduce the penalty for the possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, he is careful to make one distinction to his interviewer.

Letter: Clinton has her flaws, but GOP’s obsession with her is pointless

You would think that Sunday's columnists Jonah Goldberg and Ron Martz might reflect on the tragic events last week in Minneapolis, Baton Rouge and Dallas. But no, these Republican apologists are obsessed with Hillary Clinton.

Editorial: Third parties try to pick the ballot lock

In two weeks, the Republican Party will gather in Cleveland to officially nominate its presidential nominee for the November ballot. A week later in Philadelphia, the Democrats will do the same.

Ron Martz: A case of separate justice

Donald Trump has never said much with which I agree, especially since he became a presidential candidate. Much of that has to do with the fact that he is rude, crude, ethically challenged and speaks in platitudes rather than substance.

Dick Yarbrough: Add state parks to Georgia's brag book

I am late getting to this subject with summer whizzing along, but not so much so that we can't still squeeze it in the state of Georgia's brag book, along with Vidalia onions, St. Simons sunsets, rainbow trout and Ray Charles Robinson. I am talking about our state parks.
