Ten reasons to vote ‘no’ on the charter school amendment

The charter school amendment will be decided on Nov. 6. If it doesn't pass, it will be the greatest upset since David conked Goliath with a rock. Give me the money that has been made available to the pro-charter amendment forces (more than $2 million, almost all of it out-of-state) and let me quash the opposition's right of free speech and I could get the little dweeb that runs Iran elected Pope.

Varying vampires and their evolution

Halloween is All Hallows (All Saints Day) Eve. Traditionally, it is when all the witches and other supernatural spirits get to play until midnight.

Rasmussen: Wisconsin may be the new Ohio

Perugino: Truth or Consequences

In this life there are consequences to our actions and certainly there are consequences to not telling the truth, either by lying or by omission of the truth. Occasionally, I am compelled to respond to an article written by my fellow columnist Maurice Carter.

Which party’s racist?

New York can be a lonely and desolate city. My only date on this rainy Tuesday night is Chris Matthews -the last liberal left who will still talk to me about race.

America’s identity

This election is only tangentially a fight over policy. It is also a fight about meaning and identity - and that's one reason why voters are so polarized. It's about who we are and who we aspire to be.

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 ...

McCoy: Keeping up with the Joneses

"I'm reminded of your authentic faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice. I'm sure that this faith is also inside you. Because of this, I'm reminding you to revive God's gift that is in you through the laying on of my hands. God didn't give us a spirit that is timid but one that is powerful, loving and self-controlled."

Charter school amendment is more about ‘how’ than ‘what’

Rep. Edward Lindsey, Atlanta-R, majority whip in the Georgia House of Representatives said he finds himself bordering between "amused and disturbed" by opponents of the charter school amendment, which is set for a vote on Nov. 6. Specifically, he doesn't like the assertion that the state school board retains the power to overrule on appeal a local school board's decision to deny a charter school after the Supreme Court's ruling on the subject in May 2011.

Perugino: Info withheld on Benghazi attack
