HUCKABY: Trying to reason with pollen season

I went to bed Thursday night with a nice and shiny black SUV in my driveway. I woke up with a sickening yellow SUV in my driveway. Like a sneak attack from above the pollen season is upon us.

YARBROUGH: Irritating liberals and conservatives in same week isn’t easy

I wish I had more time to expound on this subject with you but I must get back to the serious responsibilities with which you have entrusted me — providing you with in-depth analyses on current issues. For future reference, please know that I am currently compiling a comprehensive list of parallels between Obamacare and a turkey.

CEPEDA: Continuing education — on the job

Not everyone can afford college — or is cut out for it. Once we realize this, our country can start pumping out the workers our future economy needs instead of outsourcing skilled manufacturing jobs to places such as Germany or Poland, with their world-renowned apprentice programs.

SOWELL: How foreign is our policy?

Like those who are disappointed with Barack Obama’s domestic policies, critics of his foreign policy may be ignoring the fact that you cannot know whether someone is failing or succeeding without knowing what he is trying to do.

CLINE: Passion the name of the game for Family Promise director

Family Promise needs help from local churches. Currently there are 30 host churches and five more called support churches. There are 15 weeks that are open, which means the need for more church participation still exists.

THOMAS: Much ado about Noah

It wasn’t so long ago that conservative Christians believed Hollywood to be evil and some preachers instructed their congregations not to go to movies lest they be tempted beyond their ability to resist. Now Christians are debating film content. That’s progress of a sort.

MCLEOD: The Airplane Experiment: Role reversal gone awry

Wouldn’t it be great if your boss had to spend a week doing your job? Or your spouse had to take care of your jobs?

RICH: Why loyalty matters

When I think back on the days of my youth, that time when I had the privilege of traveling on the NASCAR circuit, it would be hard to pick a lesson learned that was more important than another.

KING: On immigration, welcome to Republican-ruled Georgiafornia

In early January the sad prediction from this long-time denizen of the Gold Dome was that it would be after the November mid-term elections before pro-enforcement immigration conservatives would be put on the full-time defense in Republican/Chamber of Commerce-ruled Georgia.

KRAUTHAMMER: Obama vs. Putin: The mismatch

Obama’s dismissal of Russia as a regional power makes his own leadership of the one superpower all the more embarrassing. For seven decades since the Japanese surrender, our role under 11 presidents had been as offshore balancer protecting smaller allies from potential regional hegemons.

YARBROUGH: Columnist commandos get the latest scoop on Crimea

Since the policy of the federal government seems to be to snoop on the conversations of private citizens, I thought it would be appropriate if we turned the tables on them. So, I authorized my columnist commandos to infiltrate the White House disguised as Teleprompters and get the real scoop on the latest developments in Ukraine.
