Carson and Trump Are Both Right… And You Know It!

Carson and Trump Are Both Right… And You Know It!

1. A strict Muslim should never be President of the United States. 2. We need a secure, physical barrier to keep illegal aliens from crossing into our nation via Mexico. If you believe what most main stream media pundits have declared, you would have thought Donald Trump “pooped the bed” and Ben Carson “pooped the […]

GRU Name Change Engineered by Hull

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 […]

A Note From Austin Rhodes

A Note From Austin Rhodes

In regards to my Metro Spirit column that appears in the Thursday, August 27, issue, and that has already been withdrawn from the Spirit‘s website, I was inadvertently relayed inaccurate information on Dr. Ron Jowers that I need to correct. Dr. Jowers and his staff recently gave their full cooperation to DEA personnel auditing prescription […]

Is Someone Impersonating Joe Mullins?

Is Someone Impersonating Joe Mullins?

A registered letter arrived this week, with a “demand” that I cease and desist “communicating information about Mr. (Joe) Mullins that you know to be false.” Okay. Along the same lines I can “cease and desist” tap dancing with koala bears, partying with Vanna White and singing tenor with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Atlanta. […]

Medical Geniuses in Need of Blue Collar Common Sense

Medical Geniuses in Need of Blue Collar Common Sense

The texts and emails started coming in around 6 p.m. Friday evening: CODE BLACK ALERT AT GRU! Less than 24 hours prior, we had been notified of a Code Black (active shooter) activation at Georgia Regents University’s downtown medical complex, apparently triggered by the accidental discharge of a handgun by one of the guests recently […]

Joe Mullins: More Baggage Than the Kardashians on a Long Vacation

Joe Mullins: More Baggage Than the Kardashians on a Long Vacation

Sometimes alarming, sometimes sad and, yes, sometimes entertaining. You folks should see some of the “information” that gets sent my way. Incriminating pictures, scandalous email, nasty text messages and, many years ago, even a few VHS tapes. Ninety percent of the time, the ribald adventures of local folks who have too many hormones and not […]

The Nine Lives of Joel Danko

The Nine Lives of Joel Danko

Nine months after I broke the news that there was a major steroids scandal brewing for the Richmond County Sheriff’s Department, we are still waiting for the complete report prepared by the GBI to be released. It has been in the hands of Augusta District Attorney Ashley Wright since early April, with no public explanation […]
