Letter: What's the election really about?

Dear Editor: This election is not about Democrat versus Republican. It is about capitalism versus Communism and the fundamentally changing of America as we know it. I have asked myself why anyone would want to change a system that has done more for mankind than any other form of government. It is not about what has done the most good; it is about idealism (Utopia). The Communists do not believe in God so they try to create heaven on earth (as they see it).

The auditorium burst into applause as East Newton fourth grade teacher Julie Thompson was named Newton County School System's 2013 Teacher of the Year; however, as in years past, Thompson accepted the award on behalf of not only herself, but her family, friends, co-workers and students.

"You are the reason I do what I do and that I love what I do," she said to her students, cheering from the audience. "These students make it a pleasure to come to work every day."

McCoy: World’s Greatest Dad

I guess celebrities are everywhere, but I was really shocked to learn that the World's Greatest Dad lives in our town! What are the odds of that happening? By definition, there can only be one "World's Greatest Dad," and he lives right here, not over in a Tibetan hut or Australian wilderness protecting his kids from wild dingoes and snakes. I haven't met the guy, but I know he lives here because I've seen World's Greatest Dad shirts, pens and coffee cups for sale in the local stores.

Morgan: It's easy to judge

Being judge and jury all in one has got to be a heavy burden, but don't you know a lot of people who like the job? It is a popular avocation, even a full-time occupation for many. People who create this job for themselves can never be off duty or go on vacation. The work is just never done. They must be ever vigilant, lest anybody get away with anything that might differ an iota from the perspective of the ones who have made themselves the arbiters of right and wrong, the acceptable and the unacceptable, the good and ...
