Four Words Unleash the Hounds of Hell

Four Words Unleash the Hounds of Hell

In case you haven’t noticed, I pay attention to the way media covers certain current events and topical stories. Many of you out there in “News Consumer Land” may just read, watch or listen to media reports as they break throughout the day without giving a passing thought to why or how the content is […]

Few secrets in government firings… If you look

Few secrets in government firings… If you look

Metro residents have seen more than their fair share of high-profile terminations and forced resignations in recent months, which included a police chief, an airport manager, and even an EEO bureaucrat. While these terminations—and a few more that have generated headlines—always seem to get plenty of attention, few direct comments seem to explain these kinds […]

Low-Tech Diagnostic Tool Reveals the Sad Truth

Academic and discipline problems plague America’s public schools, and it is a problem that has become so routine that rarely do the debates dedicated to solving the problem get much of our attention. In an effort to find solutions, local school board trustees in Aiken, Columbia and Richmond counties have invited the parents of many […]

Wagons Circled, But the Stink Is Stuck

Wagons Circled, But the Stink Is Stuck

First thing’s first. I do not believe there is any way Augusta District Attorney Ashley Wright could have prosecuted a successful case against any of the Richmond County lawmen implicated in the year-old steroids scandal, seemingly “wrapped up” last week.

GRU Name Change Engineered by Hull

Local philanthropist and property developer Jim Hull is the man. It begins and ends with him… and one other guy… fellow Regent Tommy Hopkins. Hopkins is an orthopedic specialist out of Griffin, Georgia. Three years ago Hopkins doubled down pretty hard in support of the name change to Georgia Regents University, and yielded to the leadership of […]

Sensitive Christians Should Stay Out of Civil Service

Sensitive Christians Should Stay Out of Civil Service

Sensitive Christians should stay out of civil service. As should sensitive Muslims, Buddhists, Jews, Mormons, Catholics and Sikhs. Actually, anyone who seriously values their “religious spirituality” needs to stay away from any profession that, by its very nature, may require that person to ignore the commandments of their faith and deity. If the requirements of […]

Azziz’s Trail of Financial Lunacy/A Motive for Mullins?

Azziz’s Trail of Financial Lunacy/A Motive for Mullins?

Before I expound on this week’s tidbits, another apology on my behalf to Dr. Ron Jowers and his staff for incorrectly reporting his prescription privileges had been curtailed by the Drug Enforcement Agency. As you see in the attached correction/clarification, I was given some inaccurate information by sources contacted to work on behalf of several […]
