More than 55 years ago, when I was a student at Emory, the Atlanta Journal dispatched me to Grady as a part-time reporter to cover the emergency room on Saturday nights.

Cuba, Cubans still stuck

You'd have to be a masochist, a journalist or a CIA analyst to sit through more than 30 seconds of the latest Fidel Castro video appearance.

Michael Moore's 'sicko' propaganda

Is all that ails the U.S. health-care system is that it's not run by a communist dictatorship? That has long been a premise of apologists for Fidel Castro who extol the virtues of medical care on his totalitarian island nation.

Blog: Trip to the big city

This terrorist deserves our gratitude

This is a story I shared with some of you a couple of years ago, but given the well-deserved tributes this week to our veterans, it seems an appropriate time to share it with all of you. It is about a terrorist; an honest-to-God terrorist. Not only does he not deny the appellation, he's proud of it.

VA working to improve services

At the Department of Veterans Affairs, we have one of the most noble and inspiring missions in government. I accepted this job and joined this mission to better serve you - our veterans - and improve the delivery of the care and benefits you have earned.

Support leads to success

Over the years, I've crossed paths with many who were extremely successful as well as some who were such miserable failures that, as Mama liked to say, they "ain't worth the breath they draw."

Americans must work for greater good

Editor, "Greater Good" is a point or ideology that has been defined, perceived and twisted. So what does this mean? I wonder if it's even fair to apply this concept because, at the end of the day, the definition is construed. Man is still making that determination.
