This is a test
Yep, after nearly two years, this sucker's almost over.
Two weeks before the election and what should I talk about?
I've been here in Statesboro for a little over a year now and – for better or worse – I'm gaining a little bit of local notoriety. It's made for some fun and entertaining "after-hour" discussions.
So here it is folks, my last Friday column.
It's good to know our elected leaders are listening to the people.
I, like 70 plus percent of Americans, have one thing to say to Congress.
As I said last week, I feel this year's presidential race has turned into nothing more than a cheap, tawdry version of a popularity contest. Frankly, the race for who's going to be head cheerleader on the middle school squad is steeped in more maturity than this national race.
Honestly, I thought this presidential campaign couldn't get any worse, but then the conventions rolled into their respective towns. What a disappointment.
Ah, football is back.
This year's U.S. presidential election is starting to look worse than the high school contest in the Matthew Broderick/Reese Witherspoon movie classic "Election." Only the election in the movie had more competent and mature contestants.
Alright, it looks like the Federal Reserve and the housing industry has done what the Bush administration (or the Clinton administration for that matter) has not been able to do over the last decade – reduce immigration.
This week, as everybody prepares to take advantage of the sales tax holiday, it's time for a little economic miscellany. Seems there are a few stories lingering around out there that don't necessarily require an entire column but do deserve a polite mention.
This past week I've had a little free time on my hands and, in an attempt to relax a bit, I spent some time flipping through the television stations.
Now that the Georgia primaries are over we can all get ready for the last four months of the 2008 election cycle, which, by all accounts, started in the fall of 1978.
