Bullies are found in all age groups

Early last spring, a young lady who was a high school senior was an intern in The Covington News newsroom. She came in a few afternoons a week, was willing to try anything and was always cheerful. She entertained us with her stories about high school.

Progressive agenda hinders blacks

Sometimes I wonder when black people will reject the patronizing insults of white progressives and their black handmaidens. After CNN's Piers Morgan's interview with the key witness in the George Zimmerman trial, he said: "Rachel Jeantel is not uneducated. She's a smart cookie."

Political class is about to get schooled

Cushman: Congress needs fresh start

Last week, our two children started back to school. The prep work included buying new backpacks, books and school supplies, along with a few new clothes. Binders were labeled and organized, new textbooks were bought and thumbed through, and, for our daughter Maggie, the first day's outfit was carefully thought through and laid out the night before. Schedules were printed and reviewed.

Massie: Show up and protest

Last Saturday, I happened to be driving by the Hilton off International Drive, where the Obamas were scheduled to regale wounded veterans moments after their limousine pulled up to the venue. You can imagine my surprise (and nausea).

Americans are rightly upset with political leaders who are more interested in partisan politics and scoring ideological points than in serving their country.

Morgan: Adversaries salute Shipp

If you ever had one of Bill Shipp's finely honed pens lodged between your shoulder blades, you would never forget it. I write from personal experience and from having worked for a governor who regularly suffered public excoriation at the hands of arguably the most powerful political reporter and commentator in the state's history. In fact, the New Georgia Encyclopedia calls him "one of the country's premier political commentators."
