Urges prescription-writing psychologists
A proposal in the Georgia Legislature would give prescription-writing authority to specially-trained, licensed psychologists. The major reason psychologists are seeking additional training and authority to prescribe is to provide quality care for their patients. This will avoid the usual necessity of having the patient see two professionals if they are on medication. Treatment would be more integrated and wholistic. Prescription privileges for psychologists would result in significant cost savings and stop the inconvenient and, at times, painful necessity of telling one's story again. Jeffrey M. Brandsma, Ph.D., Augusta

The biggest enemy the African-American has is his hate for the white male. He is letting that control him. The Confederate flag is only a piece of cloth.

Wants America to turn back to God
There is a major problem in our society today. Most of it is the result of the examples from top ranking officials and leaders. Those are the ones who are out there in the light and in the news all the time -- the ones that people see the most. They are the ones who have little to no self-respect, no morals, no backbone, no principles, no concern for families, fairness or justice. Their only concerns are for themselves, and how much money they can get their hands on any way they can. Glen Reynolds, Grovetown

What is it about this seemingly depressing story that gives the character his appeal? Why is he so loved? What about him makes him so special? Lee Catherine Booker, Augusta
