Ask Dr. Gott 12/22

DEAR DR. GOTT: I'm a 66-year-old cashier and stand eight hours a day. My previous job for many years was that of a waitress.

Kathy Bradley - Feeling of Christmas should be embraced

I don't really mind 80-degree weather in December. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that I prefer it. I can sit on the deck and read the Sunday paper.

Teaching religion in the classroom

I have been thinking about the GSU professor whose religious approach in class - if what I have read and heard is accurate and not just rhetoric - is at odds with our U.S. Constitution. There are plenty of ways to use intelligent discussion of religion to make a point, open some creative critical thinking and take advantage of a good liberal arts education.
