Editor: What happened to politeness and courtesy? You rarely hear, "please," "thank you," "you're welcome" and "excuse me." People have become so egocentric that they do not consider the feelings of others. When things get complicated during interactions with other people, we tend to forget common courtesy.
Editor: Thank you, Will Darsey, for graciously letting me down easy in your response to my letter in the Nov. 16, 2016 edition of the Coastal Courier.
God bless America and God bless Mount Paran Christian School in Cobb County. Before a recent football playoff game, every player on the team came running on the field carrying an American flag. A school official told the Marietta Daily Journal, "The football team decided to all carry flags on the field because of all that's going on in our world with several athletes maybe not showing respect for God and country and the lack of unification in the country after the election. The fact that they did this during a playoff game makes it even more special." Yes ...
Friends and relatives who know I work at the state capitol often ask these questions: How can you stand it there? Don't you just hate it?
Pity the anti-Trump protesters thronging the streets of American cities.
Two days goes, it was assumed by just about everyone in Lennox Valley that attention would turn on Friday from the mayor's race to the upcoming county fair.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but the unintended consequences of our holiday frenzy can also make it the most wasteful time of the year. It it doesn't have to be.
For those millions of Americans who awakened to discover that their Donald Trump nightmare was not just a bad dream, the question is, What to do now? Do they accept the platitude about national unity from a stunned Hillary Clinton that "We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead"?
Editor: This is a moment when we need to be organizers.
Editor: I believe I finally have some insight into the shocking 2016 Presidential election results:
Editor: I just received today's paper, and saw the front-page article about the Midway "city leaders" proposing a new City Hall. They may need one - but a $1 million price tag? Are they out of their minds?
I promised last week that I would share with you the results of the latest patent-pending Wikiwinkwink Political Report, courtesy of my colleague, Junior E. Lee, general manager of the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company, located in Greater Garfield, Georgia. Not only is Junior one of the most highly-respected political analysts in the country, he is also a pest control professional – a claim that neither Bill O'Reilly or that fat guy on MSNBC can make.
Hillary Clinton is not the biggest loser of this election although she is certainly a loser in many ways. I think that there were a number of losers in this historical moment in time.
Editor: I read with interest and humor the letter to the editor from Lynda Hall in the Nov. 16 issue. Lynda does a fine job of expressing her feelings about the presidential election results as well as her thoughts about my letter to the editor regarding the same.
Well, another election has come and gone and once again the people have spoken. Unlike the last two presidential elections, this time I enjoyed the outcome, having cast my vote for President-Elect Donald Trump.
I met Amy Swann at The Coastal Courier. She and I quickly became comfortable with each other and I will forever cherish her memory.
At year's end, it's always interesting to look back at all that happened and realize that so little of it was anticipated while ...
The Democrats have a simple explanation for Hillary Clinton's loss - the Russians did it.
