This is not the time to try a $75,000-per-year experiment that would have an insignificant effect on dropout rates! Laney High School's dropout rate can only be decreased if the parents take on the responsibility that they are now passing on to the teachers and others. It's up to the parents to demand high standards from their children (and teachers) and they should expect nothing less.

The Georgia Supreme Court postponed the execution of a triple murderer because the man attempted suicide. His lawyer claims he is too nuts to be executed. If a court is stupid enough to fall for that, everybody on death row will immediately pretend to try to commit suicide; then all will NOT be executed by a court that claims you can't execute a nut case, while the phony nut cases will laugh all the way out of death row.

Speaking of Obama's golf swing, if his swing is as awkward as is shown on TV, he is an awful golfer. If he's claiming decent scores, with THAT swing, he's lying about golf, too.

Our many thanks to a wonderful lady who stopped on Evans to Locks Road last Friday to rescue our new little puppy who had sneaked out of the fenced yard. You were so thoughtful to take the time to be sure she was safe. Spicy Girl says "many thanks!"

Property owners cannot prevent tenants from not paying their water bills. Lori Davis, who is running for mayor, should know that property owners cannot be responsible for tenants not paying their bills.

This is a rant for the person that has their own street that I happen to drive on my way to Augusta State University. How did you get your own street?

There is always one thing that makes a Republican look real good. A Democrat.

Somebody told me that to be in "The Tea Party," you must be at least 50 years old and have Rush Limbaugh programmed on your radio ...

When them psychiatrists get through with you, you not only look like a gooney , you act like a gooney , too.

This is a rant for the procurement office. It needs a new director. They should have investigated the license problem with the people that wanted to operate The Patch. It's time to get a new officer.

I visit your fair city quite often. ... It appears as though you don't have a speed limit. Every time I come over there's people passing me like I'm sitting still. I can be going 80 mph, it doesn't matter. Whether I'm on 520 or whether I'm on one of the regular roads it's just like there's no speed limit over there.

Right, Fiat, just like the stains on Jesse Jackson, Jim Jones, Jimmy Swaggart, and a number of others who "slipped" from glory. No matter what they do, the memory remains. Jane is doomed to her fate with the way Vietnam Veterans feel about her. But again, even today, no one knows her soul. The memory hangs on!

Sorry, Sarge, even if a

Sorry, Sarge, even if a person is as sincere as is humanly possible, a heart pure enough to merit God's forgiveness is not possible. Fortunately, His forgiveness isn't based on how pure our hearts are but on throwing ourselves on His mercy with the intent not to sin again. It's only His mercy that even lets us know we need forgiveness in the first place.

I hear old Jane experienced that mercy at one point during the late 80s/early 90s (I think), although I don't know if she still is trying to walk in it.

F.L., I have to disagree! The

F.L., I have to disagree! The thief on the cross next to Jesus led a life full of sin,seemingly unworthy of forgiveness, yet he asked and was granted forgiveness. No matter who we are, or what we've done, the Bible and Almighty God teaches that we only have to ask to receive his forgiveness, and sin no more! This is where the problem lies in us hoomans, is that we can't tell if a person is truthful or not, because we're not mind readers. Not one person on this earth knows the true heart and soul of another. Only God knows that, so if old Jane asked and was truly repentant, she may have been forgiven, but we don't know that, do we?

Fiat - I would let God figure out what's in people's hearts and who he forgives. His shoes are waaaay to big for you to fill.

Well, my Chariot has started to change to a gourd, so I better say a fond farewell for the evening. God bless everyone here, especially our Veterans and American fighting personnel.

We are in complete agreement,

We are in complete agreement, Sarge. Still, I'm sure you agree that it is God's mercy that brings all this about rather than anything we can do to merit it? Asking and receiving, certainly, but not ever deserving.

One thing we mackerel-snappers are instructed about from the get-go, very seriously and soberly, is never to entertain speculation about another person's state of grace or their eternal destination, no matter who they are or what they have done.

Even Jane Fonda.
