Stars, but only on diamond - Greg Gelpi

Their forearms may rival those of Superman, but that doesn't mean that their integrity does as well.

Sad excuses for entertainment - Justin Boron

Taking a swing at Congress, out at first - Bob Paslay

What I like about the way the Big Guy designed us is He gave us this spectacular brain and no two people got the same one. So two people can stand side by side in a museum looking at a painting, especially an abstract one, and one sees a pony and one sees a glob of colors and nothing more.

With long distance calling from anywhere to anywhere across the U.S. on a cell phone, then what is the point of having a land line when it can cost you just for the basic service that you do not really need? What is worse is that in most places you must pay for a basic phone line in order to receive high-speed Internet access.

Pets of the Week

Eindy is a 4-year-old, black and white domestic medium-hair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Eindy is a solitary cat, choosing quiet, out-of-the-way places where she can nap her days away. Eindy does not like other cats, so most of her three years at the Clayton County Humane Society shelter have been spent in a cage. For more information call the Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
