Enough of Deen: I'm just about sick of hearing about Paula Deen. She didn't 'know the N-word was offensive' to some people? Please. I'm born and raised right here in Georgia, and as a child in the '60s we were taught that the word was a bad word and was never to be used. And she as a Southerner knew as well, y'all.

About those tattoos: I work with a lady whose son is all tattooed up with piercings all in his lips and eyebrows and ear stretchers, etc., and he whines about how everyone 'looks' at him weird. Really? Go figure. Someone intentionally makes themselves look like a freak in a freakshow and wonders why people look at them strangely?

About those tattoos 2: It's awesome that you have three degrees, but, do you have a job? And is it in a tattoo parlor?

About those tattoos 3: To the educated lady with three degrees and nice home (etc.) that has all the body paint and piercing saying the people who object to that are the uneducated: Just because you have all that doesn't mean you can't make bad choices in life, and someday I would bet you will regret doing it. When I was a kid you went to the circus or county fair to see people like that.

It's about race: To the racist that said Zimmerman is white and should be convicted of murder: Zimmerman is half Hispanic and defended himself against a bully who was 6 foot 3 inches tall, 8 inches taller then Zimmerman. If Zimmerman were black and the thug white, it would not have made the news.

No fun: John Winters' Sunday column really shows how adults can wring all the joy out of life. I have often thought that all the signs at the Hunter Recreational Center are so negative - no this and no that -t hat it doesn't sound like a place where anyone could have fun.

Need to report it: Code Enforcement will not enforce any code violation unless it is reported to them. Even if they see a violation they will not enforce it until it is reported. No logic in this? To those who don't believe this, call code enforcement to verify.

Who's pregnant: If men could get pregnant, abortion clinics would be more plentiful than Starbucks.

Place your bets: Yes, scientists are sometimes wrong, but the smart money doesn't bet against them.

Who knows weather: How come the guys in my hunting club know more about climate change than the experts in climatology?

Make it easy: The millions of Americans who are eligible to vote but for various reasons don't have a driver's license are usually dealing with more difficulties than most of us. Restrictive voter ID laws add even more difficulty to their lives.

Make it easy 2: We should make it easier for qualified voters to vote, not harder.
