Thanksgiving thoughts

It is tempting at this time of the year to compose a "I am thankful for ... " column. But I can't. Not because I don't have so very much for which to be thankful - I do - but because no one could ever top the efforts of the late Furman Bisher, sports editor of the Atlanta newspaper, and the finest writer to come down the pike.

They had started achieving a less restricted, independent role where they could choose to make their mark in the professional world.

Two very American heroes

Before the Texas church shooter encountered any police officers, he was run off a highway and dead. He had been shot and chased by two private citizens who took it upon themselves to respond to a heinous crime when no one with a badge was anywhere to be found.
