Editorial: Veterans tell of battles against the unknown

Americans who haven't served in the military should try to understand what we have asked of the young men and women who have laid their lives on the line for our benefit. We can't really walk in their boots and share the full experience of combat and beyond. But even if we can comprehend just a bit of the dangers they endured overseas, and the challenges they now face back home, we can better fathom the human cost of war. In doing so, we should wisely choose leaders who don't lead us into them carelessly.

Dick Yarbrough: WHO goes messing with our hogs, that's who

Letter: Climate change can’t explain past weather events

With reference to Tom Crawford's column in The Times on Wednesday, Tom uses the recent wet weather to attack Georgia Republican elected officials. Tom provides no scientific backing for his premise that "climate change" is about to kill us all because Republicans are not believers in "climate change."

Charles Krauthammer: GOP should skip investigations, win the election

At a certain point, you have to realize you can't hit a fastball. House Republicans don't quite get that they are hopeless at oversight hearings.

Letter: Will it take a disaster to unite us as a nation?

The older I get, the more I'm coming to the sad realization that our country doesn't really want to change. The voting numbers are polarized. It's almost like we have developed a stalemate in the decision-making process. The only thing that each side can agree on is that the other side is just one small step from the psych ward.

Letter: Nasty column attacking Clinton makes political divide worse

The Christine Flowers opinion piece written about Hillary Clinton and printed in Monday's paper was over-the-top crude and nasty. No wonder we have such a political divide in this country, and no wonder Mrs. Clinton considers Republicans her enemy.
