No kidding? Tax hikes slow economy

A ton of Americans didn't see the payroll-tax increase coming. Others simply didn't want to believe it when they heard or read about it, upon the rare occasion that the media would report on it. It had to just be right-wing talking points.

Enjoy every leg of the journey

We're in the midst of "birthday season." Last year, several friends and I all welcomed our babies into the world within a few months of each other. We didn't plan it that way, but around this time in 2012, it seemed like someone was always on her way to the hospital for the big event.

There's no lack of communication

My grandmother lived with our family while I grew up in Pennsylvania. She would spend several months with us each year. It was nice having her visit and being able to enjoy her storied memories, wisdom and humor.

Walking away is not solution for schools

As many of you recall, I opposed the recent charter-school amendment, not because I oppose charter schools - I don't - but because I thought the wording of the amendment was duplicitous. I thought it grossly unfair that Gov. Nathan Deal could wax eloquently on the need for passage of the amendment, but School Superintendent John Barge was not allowed to talk about opposing it. It was like Goliath beating up David.

Women deserve opporunity to train for combat

As one of his last acts as secretary of defense, Leon Panetta lifted the ban on women serving in combat roles. Considering that the hue and cry over that prospect - along with the false specter of unisex bathrooms - helped kill the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s, the initial public reaction was surprisingly muted.
