History was made last month at the C. B. King Federal Courthouse in downtown Albany.

Many people argue that liberals, socialists and progressives do not understand basic economics. I am not totally convinced about that.

It was one of those pleasant September afternoons when you can feel the heat of summer giving way as the seasons change.
Last week's column highlighted college campus absurdities and the ongoing attack on free speech and plain common sense. As parents gear up to fork over $20,000 to $60,000 for college tuition, they might benefit from knowing what greets their youngsters. Deceitful college officials, who visit high schools to recruit students and talk to parents, conceal the worst of their campus practices. Let's expose some of it.
Strike up the band.
While the Republican National Committee might have limited the number of debates in this season's primary process, the candidates' performances during the first debate ensured that they would still carry great weight. With Donald Trump as the current leader of the field, this might be considered the first reality-TV primary.
Another school year is underway in our state, which means that it's time to start complaining about the Georgia High School Association (GHSA).
This past weekend at my annual RedState Gathering, I rescinded an invitation to Donald Trump to speak after getting the runaround from his campaign on what he really meant when he said Fox News' Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes or wherever."
Hooray! The State of Georgia, CSX Transportation, Murray County and the Georgia Ports Authority have announced construction of the Appalachian Regional Port to be built in Murray County in Northwest Georgia. Automobiles, carpet and flooring and other goods from Georgia and neighboring states will be shipped via a direct 388-mile CSX rail line to the Georgia Ports Authority's deep water port in Savannah.
George Orwell said, "There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them." If one wants to discover the truth of Orwell's statement, he need only step upon most college campuses.
A particular act or policy might not have a discriminatory intent, but that doesn't let you off the hook. If it has a disproportionately negative impact on so-called protected classes, it is said to have a disparate impact and risks being prohibited by law. The uninformed assumption made by judges, lawyers and academics is that but for the fact of racial and sex discrimination, we all would be distributed across occupations, educational backgrounds and other socio-economic characteristics according to our percentages in the population. Such a vision is absolute nonsense. There is no evidence, anywhere, at any time, that ...
The big winner of the way-too-early first debate of the presidential primary season wasn't even on the stage for the prime-time event. Carly Fiorina won the "undercard" event earlier in the evening. She did so in convincing enough fashion that the next big question for political junkies will be whether she can make it into the main event in next month's debate.
Politicians are often accused of pandering and rarely wage public fights against things that are popular with their voters. That's what makes the willingness of politicians to take on Uber and the sharing economy all the more puzzling. Why on earth do they want to antagonize the tens of millions of Americans who benefit from the Uber service as consumers and drivers?
This week, our youngest child, Robert, is turning 14. His sister, Maggie, is two years older. Gone are the days when my husband and I were parents of toddlers, preschoolers or elementary school children. Instead, we are about to enter our last year as parents of middle-school students and are just three years away from Maggie's departure for college.
There have been several notable cases of racial fakery. Years ago, then-law professor Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren falsely claimed that her great-grandfather was Cherokee Indian. A diversity-starved Harvard University jumped at the opportunity to hire her. She was so good at the racial fakery that a 1997 Fordham Law Review article lauded now-Sen. Warren as Harvard Law School's "first woman of color."
Want to eat genetically modified food? Expect a number of voices from the American left to tell you to avoid it. They claim it causes all sorts of maladies. To be sure, there are some voices on the right who say the same. But mostly it is socially engineering leftists who think it should be avoided.
Blessed are we, the peacemakers. Ours is a lonely lot. I had hoped I could cut back on pacifying petulant poops and spend more time on my latest passion - learning to play the flugelhorn. Alas, it is not to be. My skills as a peacemaker are once again required. And wouldn't you know it? I had just mastered the aria "Lascia ch'io pianga" from Handel's opera, "Rinaldo." Rats.
Over the past three weeks, my family and I spent more than 22 hours driving more than 1,400 miles for our vacation. The trip involved enduring construction traffic, heavy rainstorms and unbelievably frightening, dense and fast traffic along interstates merely two lanes wide.
