Editorial: Rehab, redemption best outcomes for drug war

In retrospect, the nation's "War on Drugs" from decades past turned out in some ways to be like the earlier conflict in Vietnam: A lot of resources spent and lives lost with very little gained but a perpetual stalemate. That campaign proved to be ineffective in battling the problem, though wildly successful at filling prisons nationwide.

Guest column: Resist intolerance, preserve nation’s history and heroes despite flaws

Since the statue of Confederate President, U.S. Senator and U.S. Secretary of War Jefferson Davis has now been removed in New Orleans by intolerant leftists, ostensibly because he owned slaves, how many other statues of American leaders who owned slaves (and some owned far more than Davis) will be torn down under cover of night, too?

Letter: Trump fails to take responsibility for his own problems, actions

In the short time Donald Trump has been our president, he and his administration have been mired in continual controversy, most of it due to his own making.

Dick Yarbrough: No fake news, broccoli nor opera arias here

According to our tweeter-in-chief, there is a lot of fake news running around these days. I think he is talking about the national television networks and the navel-gazers at The New York Times and the Washington Post. I don't think he is talking about me, but who can be sure what is going on inside this guy's cranium?

Letter: Don’t include Perdue among Washington’s political class

Regarding Jim Threlkeld's letter of Monday, "Globalist career politicians all oppose Trump's nationalist ideas," I don't have a problem with what he is saying until the fifth and sixth paragraphs, where he asks "have you heard Rep. Doug Collins or Sens. Johnny Isakson or David Perdue defending the president on Russia's alleged interference with our election? No, you have not, and you will not. They do not want Trump to succeed anymore than the Democrats do ..."

Letter: Career politicians are globalists who oppose Trump’s nationalist views

Let's face it, President Donald Trump does not fit the mold of a career politician and that is why he was elected. And, since he does not fit the criteria to be in that exclusive club, both Republicans and Democrats will do their best to ensure his programs and promises to the American people will not succeed.

Letter: Allowing ‘campus carry’ of guns could increase chaos, violence

I fully support Tom Crawford's column in the May 5 edition of The Times. He contends Gov. Nathan Deal is not justified in signing the "campus carry" bill into law. However, some of his contentions could be used to defend the governor's decision.
