Lunatics running the asylum - R.H. Joseph

It's hard to say why Monday morning's fax from Georgia Right to Life irritated me more than their usual stuff, but it did.

With sisters like mine, life's a beach - Diane Wagner

I didn't believe it but, this weekend, I saw the tape.

Harvick wins Saturday night at Lanier

?Comfortably south of Atlanta' - April Avison

We usually reserve breaking news for the front page, but I felt it would be appropriate to announce some news in this space. The Henry County Chamber of Commerce recently completed an intense branding project, compiling surveys and information submitted by those who live here and those who travel here. The result is Henry County's new tagline: "Comfortably south of Atlanta."

What do you do? Bear with me - Ed Brock

You're alone in a room, a grizzly bear enters and the only door swings shut behind it.

NASCAR stereotypes are dead

On a mission after flying rock collision - By Tamara Boatwright

"There's a rock!" I saw it a split second before my friend, Naomi, hollered those words. In that instant I had to decide whether to smack into the rock or swerve, try to avoid it and chance slamming into oncoming traffic.

Are we there yet? - Rob Felt

Empty soda cans rattle against each other under the seat and half a bag of cheese-flavored popcorn spills onto the floorboard of the minivan. Wheat fields blur past the window a mile a minute and telephone poles tick the slow pace of time like a traveler's metronome.

The question is coming. Are we there yet?

Louisianaizing a Louisiana boy - Bob Paslay

I loaned one of our newest reporters a copy of "Confederacy of Dunces" to read since he is from Louisiana. And as soon as he is through I plan to bring in one of my dog-eared copies of Robert Penn Warren's "All the King's Men."

Exhibit A: Evidence for art education - Zach Porter

I can trace my artistic inclinations all the way back to at least the third grade. When asked by the teacher to render a watercolor of a local landscape, I provided a view of Stone Mountain from the front lawn - but with the many bright orange trash cans I had seen on a recent visit intact. I remember being questioned about these additions, and I responded that the trash cans had really been there and thus were included. Whereas the teacher was confounded by their inclusion, I would have thought their exclusion somehow illogical. I'd like to think that even then I had some kind of notion to preserve this landscape the way I had seen it. Perhaps this notion is what led me to become a photojournalist.

At least my money is secure - Greg Gelpi

Grabbing the handle to the side door, I gave it a little tug, but found that it was locked.

Money can't buy love - maybe just a card? - Clay Wilson
