There's no Bernie Revolution without Bernie

One hesitates to discuss the small group of Bernie Sanders followers throwing tantrums at the Democratic convention. Some 90 percent of Sanders backers say they've already moved their support to Hillary Clinton.

By popular demand: Junior E. Lee analyzes presidential races

Please don't say anything to Junior E. Lee about this but I had several people come up to me after a recent speech to ask why they had not seen his observations in the paper recently. If he knew that, he might ask for a raise.

As I look through my telescope

Does 2025 sound like the far, distant future? Guess what? It's not. We are less than a decade away from Covington's 203rd birthday. I want to invite you to take a look through my telescope at what life in Covington will be like in the year 2025 (or in 10 years if that sounds closer to you).

Believing in public education

The General Assembly did not meet this week, so I thought I would talk about why I believe so much in public education.

Media miss the real news of the week

This past week, one of the world's most famous and influential men made a major announcement concerning our global future. But you might have missed it because America's national news media was obsessing over President Obama's State of the Union address.

Will the West defend itself?

Leftists and progressives believe that the U.S. should become more like Europe. They praise Europe's massive welfare state, socialized medicine and stifling economic regulation and accept its unwillingness to defend itself against barbarism. I wonder whether America's leftists and progressives want to import some of Europe's barbaric extremism associated with its Muslim population.

Can racial discrimination explain much?

In the medical profession, there is the admonition primum non nocere, the Latin expression for "first, do no harm." In order not to do harm, at the minimum, requires accurate diagnostics. Suppose a patient presents with abdominal pains, and the physician diagnoses it as caused by the patient's ingrown toenails. If that isn't the cause, the physician can spend all the resources he wants treating the patient's ingrown toenails and not remedy the patient's abdominal pains.

A reason to be thankful

The do-over

The game's on the line and the crowd noise is deafening. Snapper and holder do their part, as a lonely placekicker steps forward, into, and through the ball. Amid cheers and groans, defenders leap with joy and the kicker hangs his head. The football falls harmlessly left of target. The victors storm the field.

Health care predictions from 1983

In 1983, I was the pharmacy director at a 124 bed hospital in Gainesville, GA. The for-profit hospital was owned by Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) and they assigned me to be the pharmacy representative on a national committee to predict what the hospital of 2000 would look like. The group was composed of members from hospitals across the United States and had one representative from each department in the typical hospital. With the recent news of Newton Medical Center looking for an equity partner, I thought back to some of the predictions from thirty-one years ago. I can only ...
