Leonard Pitts spoke volumes in his Saturday column. "Now we may be advised to wear Kevlar." Black Friday has gotten so ridiculous and when you have people getting hurt over a good deal on something you or your child want's then all I got to say is get real.
Moultrie is now headline news because of the riot at Walmart. Come on people. Thanksgiving Christmas and New Years have gothing to do with great deals or dootball. It isn't about getting drunk on New Years and trying to drive home. It is about thanking God for our blessings. Thanking God for sending His son on that first Christmas day. It is for thanking God we made it through another year.
We have lost sight of what is really important to these holidays we celebrate right now. So what do you say we get our heads back on straight and say “hi” to each other in Walmart. Wish each other a merry Christmas and happy New Year. And since this is part of the Bible and Baptist Belt, pray for each other this holiday season. You don't need to know why. Just say that person’s name and God will do the rest. So I say to everyone reading this, have a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. And God bless us everyone.

Tribute to my dad
Growing up in South Georgia every little girl thinks of their daddy as their prince; I am no different. And I believe his years of sacrifice, dedication and unconditional love for me is a story worth telling.

Oh joy! The Turtle Man will return
Great news! The Turtle Man is coming back for another season on television!
And yes, I’m being a little facetious here. It’s a ridiculous show, but apparently it’s entertainment for some people.
The kind of stuff that happens in dictatorships
Distrust of government secrecy has been elevated to an exceptional level with the disclosure the Justice Department covertly examined two months of Associated Press phone records to determine who leaked details to the AP about a foiled terrorist plot.
