A day just doesn't get any better

Sometimes things come together better than peanut butter and jelly. Take last week. I was invited to speak at the 20th annual Awards for Excellence in Law Enforcement, sponsored by the Gainesville Kiwanis Club and saluting members of the law enforcement community in the city and in Hall County. This event had a lot going for it.

No such thing as fake news

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.

In this case, Ann Coulter is right

Among my many strong principles is this one: Disagree with whatever Ann Coulter says. Actually, Ann is not the only one; she's really just a fill-in-the-blank name on my page reserved for ridiculously cruel commentators who build their followings with their limitless shock stock of tacky offensiveness. They manage to be both uninhibited and calculating at the same time. Every poisonous word they utter, every inflammatory tweet they type, every dangerous stunt they concoct is aimed at getting publicity. That is their guiding unprincipled principle.

For all the concerns raised by economists and others about the House tax plan, it is generally assumed that the proposal will reduce the gaming of the tax system by multinational corporations.

There is hope in fight against seismic testing

The very disturbing process of using seismic testing off the Georgia coast to find oil deposits, as is being proposed, coupled with the absolutely frightening concept of actually drilling for oil off the Georgia coast. is mind boggling.

Counting the days to failure

Those who worry that they are closed-minded because they can't conceive of agreeing with anything Donald Trump says or does can stop beating up on themselves. He's finally come up with something sensible, calling the intense focus on any president's first 100 days in office a "ridiculous standard." It is ridiculous, largely media hype, a contrived way to judge how a new administration is doing.

Trump's saber rattling having effect

Donald Trump's saber rattling may or may not deter Kim Jong Un, but it's had an effect south of the border.

No. 1 in more than just football

There are few people, places or things for which I have more passion than the University of Georgia and the Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications there.
