    "You might be from Marion County if..."

    I never imagined that simple phrase would spark so much interest, but it did last week when I started a group on Facebook called simply that, "You might be from Marion County if..." (Not to be confused with Jeff Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck if..." one-liners. Some might say those two phrases are one in the same, but I disagree... Somewhat.)

  • We must respect other religions

    The great world boxer Muhammad Ali says the Muslim diversity system is nothing to fear. Mr. Ali should go to the website persecution.com and read the stories of Muslim attacks and killings of Christians around the world.
    In Pakistan, Muslims have sentenced to death Asia Bibi for violating subsection C of Pakistan's 295 blasphemy law.
    So why don't all these friendly, harmless diversity Muslims stand up for her before she is put to death. She lives in a six-by-eight foot cell since her arrest in June of 2009.

  • Letter: Nominate an everyday hero

    I’m currently taking nominees for the next installment of the Kentucky’s Everyday Heroes book series, third volume. The criteria is: A living Kentuckian who has overcome extreme personal challenges and/or has given of themselves in a noble and sacrificial way. Their lives serve as examples to inspire others to greater acts of character. The nominee would be considered “ordinary”, commonly known only to people in their communities, but will have an “extraordinary” lasting impact.

  • Letter: What’s wrong with this picture?

    We have been regaled by the radical right and the misguided Tea Party proponents with claims that the Dastardly Democrats are “tax and spend” lunatics responsible for running up nearly $14 trillion in federal deficits and driving the country into ruin. But the cold hard facts demonstrate just the opposite is true.

  • Comic Con is worth the effort for all the fun

    As any geek who actually leaves their bedroom knows, the San Diego Comic Con is basically the Mecca for nerds. The convention, which takes place four days in July every year, is housed in San Diego, Calif., and attracts at least 125,000 patrons every year. And this year, once again, one of those patrons was me. 

  • Step One

    In the book, Candy: A Novel of Love and Addiction, author Luke Davies writes, “When you can stop you don’t want to, and when you want to stop, you can’t...”

    We are confident that statement hits home for anyone who has fought or is fighting an addiction. And, we know family members and friends of addicts can also relate. 

    Addiction is an ugly thing.
