Men have always been great at inventing various, and mostly deplorable, ways of comparing themselves to each other. We have retained this ability from our days of tribal wilderness dwelling, where the Alpha male controlled the group and had his choice of the women.
Ask yourself which is worse: State School Superintendent Kathy Cox's supremely stupid suggestion that the word "evolution" be removed from Georgia textbooks or the fact that the state school superintendent had no idea the suggestion was supremely stupid?
I love my job, do you? I absolutely love being a news reporter. This is my fourth newspaper since I graduated from Macon College and I have had an interesting career. I have met interesting people and people who think they are interesting but who are not. I met Sonny Perdue when he was stumping for state senator back in the early 1990s. I met Roy Barnes when he was campaigning for some office before he ran for governor. I met Zell Miller while he was governor. That was a cool meeting. I was getting the Beacon Award from the Georgia School Boards Association for my coverage of the Jones County School System and Miller was the keynote speaker.
Brothers and sisters, please turn in the Good Book to Genesis Chapter 2 Verse 25.
I'm sick and tired of this. I'm sick and tired of hearing about adults brutally killing children.
My 91-year-old grandfather was working in his yard in Crockett, Texas, last week when a tree fell over on him. It just snapped up by the roots and fell over as my grandfather tried unsuccessfully to outrun it.

I'm not the brightest guy around, so maybe someone can help me understand car insurance. Everything about the concept baffles me, and my latest exploits to find a new policy only add to my bewilderment.

If you're reading this to find out what Culturally Competent Practice is, I'm not too much of an authority on that. I can't say much about the phrase except that my friend made it up as a phony book title for an art school project. The full title was something along the lines of "Culturally Competent Practice, Understanding Faith and Family Values in America." It was quite catchy and I always wanted to reuse it in some fashion and now is as good a time as any. However it does relate vaguely to today's forthcoming topic which is the first of the three words in the aforementioned phrase.
