I once spent most of a summer in Sweden under the guise of attending a summer law school program there. I did not learn very much about the law, but the experience was nevertheless educational. Women were prone to swim at local town pools topless, which greatly increased the odds that I, too, would be lounging around the town pool on any given day.
The 8-year-old Hurricane boy was in a reflective mood. It is not often that a hurricane stops to reflect so I listened. “Dad, do you remember when I use to call the Piggly Wiggly the Pig Mart?”
Poor Reese Witherspoon. She spends all her life trying to develop a positive role model and then loses her cool with an Atlanta police officer.
It never ceases to amaze me the lengths average Americans will go to avoid taking responsibility for their own lives.
By the time you read this article, one of the great events in America will have begun its annual destruction of egos of the greatest golfers in the world.
I am by all accounts an avid dog lover. I’ve written about dogs, slept with dogs, confessed my soul to dogs, and sworn allegiance to my dog.
It has taken me several weeks to digest the news that Dennis Rodman recently visited the most closed-off nation in the world — North Korea.
I am currently overwhelmed by the need of every business in America to learn every detail about my existence.
Newest government statistics indicate 40 percent of all Americans are now classified as obese — 88 percent if you are in Walmart.
I, like hundreds of people in south Georgia, was shocked to learn Albany was recently designated the No. 2 saddest city in America.
New Zealand researchers recently reported the results of a study of 1,000 children and the affect long-term TV watching had on them. The study was published in the medical journal Pediatrics.
It is now official. Spring will be arriving in six weeks.
I like 200 million other American citizens and 50 million illegal aliens, sat down Sunday night anxious to witness the biggest event of the year.
I would like to go on record stating I have never used performance enhancing drugs in my life. I now feel secure that no one will try to reclaim my “Spirit Award” trophy, “Most Improved Player” award trophy or my “Hustle” award, all obtained drug-free. Who knows? If I had chosen to use steroids, I might now have a trophy room full of Team Spirit awards.
With the arrival of the New Year comes also the arrival of broken New Year's Resolutions. Probably top on the list is any dietary pledge ever made, from cutting back on drinking to quitting fried food to regular exercise. We make 'em and then we break 'em.
Ah, the new year has now begun, and I would be remiss if I did not comment on my beloved Auburn Tigers and their decision to suspend football for the past 2012 football season.
As I have stated in previous articles, I grew up reading Dear Abby.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Switzerland voted on whether or not to allow animals to have "publicly paid for public defenders" on Sunday.
