We've got a monkey on our backs - R.H. Joseph

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?

Who can beat Captain America? - Billy Corriher

With Sen. John Kerry jumping out in front of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, more and more primary voters are pointing to Kerry's "electability" as the secret to his allure.

Enjoying life and eating cookies - April Avison

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.

Doing what you love to do - Kathy Jefcoats

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.

Murray's merry melancholia - Zach Porter

After delivering thousands of deadpan lines in a voice that's overconfident with a hint of depression comfortably worn-in like an old shoe, Bill Murray has finally received recognition for emoting his subtle pains on the silver screen. He has been nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Actor category for the film "Lost in Translation." Fans felt he got snubbed in 1999 for his turn as rich but disappointed steel tycoon Herman Blume in "Rushmore." In "Lost in Translation," Murray plays an aging actor much like himself who is out of his element in a foreign land. The film was written (and directed) by Sofia Coppola, no doubt, with Murray in mind.

Black curtains, troubling vision - Rob Felt

Every night the parking lot outside my apartment window is lit up bright enough to perform minor invasive surgery. Recently I made some progressive advances against this unwanted nocturnal intruder and shielded myself with black curtains. Now everything has changed.
