Motorcycles do not have to be loud. Put tasteful quieting mufflers on your motorcycle. Peace and quiet is better. You will have far more admirers.

Raves to the young man who returned my wallet that I left at Food Lion on Highway 56 on April 11. Many thanks.

Coach Richt, it's the University of Georgia. Remind the players. Play football and quit worrying about your hair. Get it cut. If you want to be a rapper or whatever, give up your scholarship, but cut your hair. And maybe they would win if they would worry about playing as much as they do their hair.

I was reading the Opinion page of The Augusta Chronicle this weekend. The opinion by Bill Maxwell, who states, "I am not a conservative." I never read his stuff because after the first paragraph you realize he is not a conservative. But I'm glad he went into just what he is. And I concur. Bill Maxwell, you are not a conservative. You are the reason why America is going to hell in a hand basket.

Krispy Kreme doesn't need Phil Mickelson to advertise. All they need is the "hot" sign. And if you turn that hot sign on, Krispy Kreme, you don't need Phil to endorse it.

This rant is for all the property owners who have turned their holdings into Section 8 housing: Every one of you should be forced to live next to the house you turned into Section 8 for at least five years.

Sen. Lindsey Graham wants Washington to "invest in infrastructure." When government says "invest," it means take our money - or our credit - and blow it on the big companies or government's pals. When it says "infrastructure," that can mean anything, as long as it's absurd and overpriced.

When I was younger, I wanted to look like the Incredible Hulk. Sadly, in my later years, I've become the Incredible Bulk.

An article listing "losers" in the 2011 Georgia legislative session includes "college students" because some students will get less financial aid from the state. Those students will actually win rather than lose, because they will be forced to learn not to depend on government, a major lesson in the real world.

I am absolutely floored at the racist diatribe coming out of our black ministers. They need to get over the 1950s like the rest of us. We're moving on - with or without them.

President Obama, when asked by somone about the high price of gas, said "If you're complaining about the price of gas and you're only getting 8 mpg - you may have a big family, but it's probably not that big. How many you have? Ten kids, you say? Ten kids? Well, you definitely need a hybrid van." There are no hybrid (vans)! Folks question Obama's mental acumen over Sarah Palin's?
