Her Name Was Jennifer – Metro SpiritMetro Spirit

So Saturday, I visited my mom. While I was attempting to have a quiet moment, my restless 6-year-old son was filled with a million questions. I should have expected that. Cemeteries tend to have that effect on little boys. One of the few heartbreaks in Beau’s young life has been losing his grandmother before he […]

The Truth Delayed Is Justice Denied – Metro SpiritMetro Spirit

I have no earthly idea what happened to Freddie Gray as he was taken into custody by Baltimore police officers April 12. Clearly, he was alive and able to move before he was put into the back of a police van. That condition did not last long because, at some point, his neck was broken […]

Supreme Court’s “Free Speech” Hideously Inconsistent in So Many Ways – Metro SpiritMetro Spirit

The recent nastiness involving a group of fools desecrating an American flag in an otherwise meaningless “protest” on the campus of Valdosta State University last week brought back to life a very interesting conversation about “free speech” in this country, and exactly who is allowed to enjoy it, and in what form.

Don’t Run, Don’t Fight, Don’t Die – Metro SpiritMetro Spirit

There was a police shooting in Cottonwood, Arizona, a few weeks ago that I bet you didn’t hear much about. It involved a large brawl between members of the Gaver family and several police officers.

The Berckmans Road “shift,” which is due to begin shortly after this year’s Masters Tournament, is not being unfairly pushed to the front of any public projects priority list. It is actually a project that has been delayed for decades. Former Richmond County and Augusta City Commissioner […]

The owners of the world’s most famous golf course, and the single most important sports venue in the southeastern United States, are requesting some municipal assistance in the effort to improve their property, and some of you people are pitching a bitch fit.

Red States Minus Blue Voters Equals Better Places to Live (Statistically) – Metro SpiritMetro Spirit

“There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damn lies, and statistics.” – Mark Twain America’s favorite author didn’t like fibs, and he certainly had a problem with fibs that seemed to be backed up (facetiously) by math. That said, he would likely have a hard time with the premise of an interesting column published last […]

Say Hello (Again) to Beau! – Metro SpiritMetro Spirit

As I was doing research for this week’s Spirit column, I searched my database for the term “self reliance” and low and behold, look what popped up. Six years ago, almost to the day. Yes, it was a column commemorating the birth of my son, but holy cow do I agree with the premise and […]
