Whoever picked this list must be the same guy who picks the Squawk of the Day.

My suggestion was with arrows pointed up, fore and aft the words, "Up yours, Albany!" Well, it didn't make the top ten obviously but I like it.

I saw a bumper sticker that said "We upped ours, up yours!" I forgot what it was advertising. But I did like the sentiment.

I imagine democrats and people like bubbasmithredneck that sees things through rose colored glasses will be the main ones writing to this new column giving kudos and high fives to president Obama.

"....that sees things through rose colored glasses...." Yes that's why my suggestion "Sister Rosey's Colored Glasses" was perfect but did not make the cut either.

After being approached by several people and in consideration of my long time concern and commitment to the chillllrreennnns of Dougherty County and to the readers of The Albany Herald, I humbly submit my idea for naming this aforementioned "New Column" which is Sister Rosey's Colored Glasses as a Write-In Candidate. Thank you for your support.

Uhh.....were there any forms or petitions that were needed for that? Was there any money that should have changed hands to make if official? Don't make me play the disabled old lady card!

they should have a column where the people demand responsible leadership instead of the buffoons we have now.

Why not get rid of the squwak of the day, as it repeats the lower end of Albany's never ending crying few.

Albany has an upper end?

"Kudos from among the Kudzu" would be better, but too long.

Will Carlton Fletcher be contributing to this column? If so the readership, thus the Albany Herald's circulation will continue to plummet.

What! I can't vote but once. And you haven't even seen my picture id card.
