It's always a little sad when an era ends.
If you believe what you read on the Internet these days, if Mitt Romney wins the election next month he'll have a celebration dinner his first night at the White House featuring an entree of roasted Big Bird.
A few years ago -- more than I want to admit -- I was sitting in the stadium in Atlanta, catching a Braves game and listening to some folks talking in nearby seats.
Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Marietta, says August is "a good month" for him because of the way he spends his "vacation" from the U.S. Senate -- visiting with the folks back home and listening to what they have to say.

With apologies to the pro-Halloween contingent, there may not be an observance all year that is more steeped in sheer superstition than New Year’s Day
As for Momma, I can look back and know that I managed to spend at least part of Christmas Day — her birthday — with her for 51 years without a single miss. I’d give anything for No. 52. But 51 — not everyone has been blessed enough to be able to say that.
So, while we’re all still a bit lethargic from the carbohydrates (don’t blame the turkey) and the Mad Rush is a few hours away, it might be good to remember that the reason for the season that will be going full bore tomorrow is giving, not receiving — and certainly not demanding. I suggest taking any gesture of goodwill, however it is expressed to you, in the true spirit of Christmas. Who knows? It might even make you feel ... well ... a little merrier.
It’s not so much that an artist would think that giving birth was a form of art as it is that people would show up to watch it.
Sipping on a cup of coffee the other morning, possibly the last thing I expected to hear my wife, Cheryl, blurt out was that there was a big snake in our plum tree.
We all have a pretty good idea of what newspapers and other media have done over the past 120 years. The question now is: Where will they go in the next 120?
