Wednesday's Coastal Courier included a letter to the editor that questioned Liberty Regional Medical Center's accreditation by the Joint Commission.

I like to think of myself as an opportunist, though, so I'll take the scraps of knowledge I have retained thanks to my football fanatic spouse's three-hour tutorials and put them to good use. Hey, I may not know the difference between a running back and a quarterback, but I have learned enough to avoid embarrassing myself - or so I'd like to think.
Rats. It looks as though I have not been selected to be a member of Gov.-elect Nathan Deal's transition team. Frankly, this is getting old. I am told that both Roy Barnes and George E. Perdue didn't pick me when forming their administrations because they both thought my advice wasn't worth a jar of warm spit. That may be the only thing the two men ever agreed on.

The next time the illegal immigration advocates start whining about the poor Mexican workers coming into the United States to "do jobs we won't do" and to "make a better life for their families," please inform them that the porous borders between lawless Mexico and the U.S. are also letting in drugs at a scale almost beyond description and that Atlanta is a major distribution hub for the hombres.
