I was grabbing a couple of sausage biscuits, and witnessed a couple of old codgers arguing over their coffee. One was a bit on the heavy side, with wild hair and a loud voice. The other was silver-haired, more soft-spoken, and would occasionally seem to lose his train of thought.

When Nike launched its “Just Do It” campaign in 1988, no one had any idea what would become of such a simple phrase. In just 10 years, the company’s worldwide sales skyrocketed from $800 million to more than $9 billion, annually. Three words was all it took to make the difference of a lifetime.

Why does it seem like the great “COVID Divide” runs more or less along ideological lines? Generally speaking, conservatives want to fully reopen the economy, send kids back to school, and shuck the face coverings, while “progressives” call for endless lockdowns, “digital learning” and mask m…

If you watched last week's virtual Democratic convention, you heard about an America with which you might not be familiar. Speaker after speaker portrayed America as a failing nation full of misery, poverty and angst that only they can make better.

More than 100,000 US small businesses have shuttered since the onset of the pandemic in March. As the threat of more closures piles on, we’re becoming more conscious of our spending habits. Many of us, including me, are asking: How can I support small and local business owners?

We Americans do love us some experts. Utterly fixated on credentials, we appear to believe that degrees and titles confer almost magical powers. If you want to win an argument — any argument, on any topic — just lead with “Well, the experts say….”

You longtime loyalists (and you know who you are) will remember the exploits of Sheila the Family Wonderdog in this space. You will also recall that Shelia went to Doggie Heaven a few years back where she now enjoys swapping yarns with her pals Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Old Yeller and chasing squirrels into eternity.

Anything that reduces tensions in the Middle East and contributes to Israel’s security should be applauded. The agreement between the UAE and Israel to establish diplomatic relations in exchange for Israel’s suspension of settlements and claims to sovereignty over Judea and Samaria (as Israel refers to the West Bank) is a tremendous policy achievement, though UAE’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed was less enthusiastic in his description of the deal.

Places have always held a special significance for me —certain places at least, the ones I refer to as “touchstones.” Those are places that meant a lot to me at one time, usually in childhood, and that I still enjoy visiting occasionally.

Those of us who have served are used to mostly empty gestures of gratitude. We hear “thank you for your service” countless times a day. We used to see yellow “support our troops” ribbons. Every once in a while, someone will buy us a beer.

It’s a jungle out there and Kandiss Taylor is trying to hack her way through it. We are talking about Georgia’s “jungle primary,” a euphemism for a special election on Nov. 3 to fill the remaining two years of U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson’s term.

The apocalypse is truly upon us. Somebody has made the decision — I don’t know who, I know it wasn’t me — that the Georgia-Georgia Tech football game will not be played this year for the first time since 1924. This hallowed event, which dates to 1893, is commonly referred to as “Clean Old Fashioned Hate,” which probably disturbs the politically correct weenies among us.
