Thank you, Mr. Holloway: To any of those who doubt Mr. Holloway, allow me to show you all the DVDs I have over a three-year period of his chorus classes' performances. Guarantee you will be blown away.

Buy a state? For Sale – Georgia. Make payment to: Real Deal.

Stop re-electing them: It's almost comical how some stretch the truth in efforts to deflect the tragedy of black subjugation in the South and elsewhere. The new "plantation owners" are all Democrats, some white, some black. And who keeps re-electing them? The new slaves, the ones with victim mentalities.

Did I hear it right? Lower Fayetteville, a two-lane which should be a four-lane highway, will be reduced to one lane of traffic for seven months starting in September due to the new roundabout construction in front of the Newnan Centre? Send that bad idea back to the drawing board.

Deadly force: Enough already about the unarmed teenager being shot by the mean old policeman. This brutish young man was armed with 260 pounds of muscle on a scary 6-foot-5 frame. He attacked a police officer and got what he should have expected –deadly self-defense.

No candy: Yay for taking away candy and snacks in the vending machines in schools. That means less trash on county school buses.

Definition of feminists: Women who think they should be able to boss men around without marrying them first.

Blackmail: It's apparent that Sam Nunn has pictures of Zell Miller in a compromising situation. Or Zell owes Sam big time.
