More useless than socks on a pig

The only thing more useless than socks on a pig are New Year's resolutions. Our intentions are applaudable but our follow-through usually leaves a bit to be desired. Still, that should not keep us from trying. I mean, what else is there to do while lying prone on the couch with a snoot full of black-eyed peas and collards and watching the Yada-Yada Bowl?

Seeing red flags

There is a really good reason to support Senate confirmation of Rex Tillerson to be President-elect Donald Trump's secretary of state: Tony Perkins opposes him.

Wow! I hadn't noticed, how much things had changed during Christmas, until Friday night after a drive in Ludowici, where I live. Boy, was I surprised as I was looking at my neighbors' Christmas decorations, ranging from various Disney Characters, like penguins, characters from "Frozen," Winnie the Pooh, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, even a sly looking fox, and those little hot-dog dogs. Some people even had green, red and black dots projected onto their homes and lawn.

‘Arrival’ is intelligent sci-fi movie; doesn’t need effects

"Arrival" is a consistently well-acted, intelligently constructed sci-fi drama that cares much more about character and story instead of mindless special effects. This is one of the brainier, more introspective movies to come out this genre since the likes of "Signs" and "Contact."
