NPR apparently closes its mind

We should have known about Juan Williams long ago. The signs of a simmering bigotry were always there. The political commentator wrote the book "Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965." He followed that up with an admiring biography of Thurgood Marshall.

Superintendent should champion public education

In my house, the contest for state school superintendent is as important as the governor's race. I have a son, son-in-law and now a grandson who are public school teachers and they - and all the other teachers - deserve a draw-a-line-in-the-sand advocate.

Texas must be doing something right

Texas already looms large in its own imagination. Its elevated self-image didn't need this: More than half of the net new jobs in the U.S. during the past 12 months were created in the Lone Star State.

Coastal residents may be a bit behind

The greatest place on earth is the coast. Now, mind you, I love the Georgia coast better than about anywhere I can think of, but we're not the only place on earth with a coast. Every coast has its qualities - good and bad. My coast has it all.

A rush to educate

"But further, we err, not only in religion but in philosophy likewise, because we do not know or believe 'the scriptures.' The sciences have been compared to a circle of which religion composes a part. To understand any one of them perfectly it is necessary to have some knowledge of them all. Bacon, Boyle and Newton included the scriptures in the inquiries to which their universal geniuses disposed them, and their philosophy was aided by their knowledge in them."

Health-care proposal improves with ages

You've got to give credit to U.S. Rep. Dr. Tom Price, R-Ga.: He introduced his first post-Obamacare bill as early as 2009 and has reintroduced an updated version in every Congress since then.
