He has allowed Angie's List, NFL, Disney, Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Apple, Porsche and others to bully him.

Editorial: No remedy from Capitol for ailing kids

As we assess what the Georgia General Assembly accomplished in its now-concluded 40-day session, one key bill that didn't get passed was a missed opportunity to help many in our state: The push to expand availability of a cannabis oil derivative for those who endure seizure disorders.

Letter: Columnist spews vitriol, resents anyone resisting leftist positions

I picked up the March 12 edition of The Times and was appalled at the vitriol spewed by editorial writer Ann McFeatters, caterwauling about our "slide into madness." She has tunnel vision and resorts to calling people names.

My heart is sickened by allegations of sexual abuse by Fleming Weaver, my former Scoutmaster. I earned my Eagle Scout in 1979 and admired Mr. Weaver, considered him a shaping influence in my life. Likewise, Dr. Steve Brown was my pastor and I respected and liked him. And I know at least one of the victims.
