February is considered Heart Month by the American Heart Association; it means something to me because I am a heart attack survivor.

Nothing but respect for the weather

If I were a wealthy woman, I would be writing this while sitting in the sun in Brazil, not in Newton County, Ga. However, here I am, sitting in my home, hoping my laptop doesn't stop working.

In praise of life's phases

Thursday is my mother's birthday; she would have been 78. This is the first year that she won't be with us to celebrate, but will be in heaven looking down. In my mind, she is still with us in spirit and love.

Protecting children is more important than guns at church

Let me run some numbers by you. 152: The number of children who died in 2012 in Georgia, despite the intervention of the state's Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS). 13: The number of children who died in 2012 while in foster care. Zero: The number of people who died in shootouts in a house of worship in our state during the same period. 152 to 13 to zero. So what is the hot-button issue in this session of the General Assembly? Guns for God, of course. HB 875, authored by Rick Jasperse (R-Jasper.)

Getting a grip on federal budget realities

The big story about the federal budget this week was the Republican Party's struggle to deal with raising the debt ceiling. Last year's big budget story was President Barack Obama and the Democrats coming to grips with the so-called sequester, a policy gimmick that modestly slowed the growth of federal spending.

Some bold predictions for 2014

Good grief. I just took a peek at next week's calendar. It says 2014. That can't be correct. I'm still waiting for Y2K and for all our computers to crash. I must have overslept.

No lottery winnings, but wonderful memories

Looking back on 2013, I have to say there is one objective I did not meet: I did not win a lottery. That would really have fulfilled a Christmas wish.

Time for some to look in the mirror

It's about dysfunction, not hatred

Journalist Michael Kinsley once defined a political gaffe as when someone "accidentally reveals something truthful about what is going on in his or her head." In other words, a gaffe is when a political player accidentally tells the truth. This appears to be what happened in a recent Washington Post story.

Stop demonizing capitalism

Pope Francis, in his apostolic exhortation, levied charges against free-market capitalism, denying that "economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world" and concluding that "this opinion ... has never" been confirmed by the facts." He went on to label unfettered capitalism as "a new tyranny."

A rich plate of season's eatings

In just five days, we'll be sitting down – again – to a holiday table laden with the kinds of foods that make lifelong memories. It won't be Christmas without turkey and ham, sweet potato casserole with marshmallows, green beans, mashed potatoes, cornbread dressing and gravy as only a grandmother can make, cranberry salad, squash casserole with cheese, caramelized Brussels sprouts, baked oysters, and warm yeast rolls.

Here's wishing you miracles

"Miracle on 34th Street," "White Christmas," and "It's a Wonderful Life" are among my favorite Christmas movies. All three stories revolve around people, connections and miracles.

Our planet's not so fragile

Let's examine a few statements reflecting a vision thought to be beyond question. "The world that we live in is beautiful but fragile." "The 3rd rock from the sun is a fragile oasis."

Washington is not in charge

Entering the world of "official Washington" is a bit like the mythical trip Alice took through the looking glass. Everything is upside-down and nonsensical.

California shows country how not to govern

The outpouring of raw hatred and unbridled ignorance that I received in Twitter messages and emails after my recent appearance on the "Dr. Phil Show" had me asking, "What would America be like if these types governed?"
