I suppose I am among the majority of Americans, and people in general, who don’t particularly like change. Not only do I not embrace it, I have been known to run away and climb a tree to get away from it.
The age-old notion that college is the doorway to a high-paying career has been taking it on the chin lately, as more and more young people ask, “Is it worth it?”
We buried Lewis Grizzard 20 years ago. It doesn’t seem possible, does it? That it has been that long?
Let me go out on a limb: The Malaysian airliner did not get sucked into a black hole, vanish over the Indian Ocean equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle or crash-land on the spooky island from “Lost.”
I could write continuously for the next four weeks — not even stopping for meals — and not tell the entire story of my pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
Local school systems are committed to workforce development, but can they improve current educational practice by coming together, crossing county lines, exploring transfer of FTE, seeking approval of creative collaboration on allotments, pooling resources (including human ones), and crafting intergovernmental agreements to build an eastern region of massive intellectual capital in the STEM areas, ensuring not only student success but jobs for the future?

March is supposed to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. I’m not sure if it realizes that, but one thing is for sure — you never know what might happen once that month arrives.
The Georgia Department of Education has stopped using the terminology “Common Core” in-house. I have that on good authority.
The Georgia General Assembly began last week at a fast pace, since Monday was what we call crossover day. Crossover day is the 30th day of our 40-day annual legislative session.
If conservatives really want to attract more minority voters they will help their kids. It’s positive, it’s optimistic, and it will work.
Scholars digging through public, commercial and family archives are unearthing facts and stories that have long been swept under the rug. Hollywood’s recognition of “12 Years a Slave” announces an uncomfortable truth: Slavery’s story is America’s story.
I’m glad to be just an observer and not Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. He has to be concerned with the nation’s financial stress and he has to slash budgets to keep us in line.
