Missing the moment

 Dear Editor: I had not had an opportunity to see your paper on Friday before sending you [an] e-mail and I wish to ensure your awareness that it was a pleasure to see something worthy of the office in print about the President-elect. However, the historical nature of the election should not have had to wait from Wednesday until Friday to be noted.

Trust but verify

I don't have much tolerance for rude behavior myself, so it is humiliating to have to beg your indulgence while I ask this rude question. Why in the world do we Georgians trust that our votes are being counted accurately? Because we are too polite to question authority.

Finally Over

If you're my friend on Facebook, you saw my declaration that this week's column would be about anything but the election. But as I sat down to write, I found that was the only real topic ping-ponging around my mind. Well, that and my need to mop the floor. I couldn't build a column around mopping, so please forgive me for reneging on my promise.

Misreporting the news

Your article in Friday's edition ("GOP incumbent faces bus driver...") was most peculiar, from the headline to its lack of information on Mr. Eddie Johnson. I personally do not live in District 2, nor do I know Mr. Johnson, but I recognized a totally inept and biased article. You did publish a small "correction" on page 2 of the Sunday edition with no explanation of how your reporter left out all of Mr. Johnson's background.
