Folks write letters

And, miraculously, sometimes they get published.

To the editor: Linder doesn't practice what he is preaching

Regarding the column by Rep. John Linder, R-Duluth ("Those who serve exhibit strongest courage, character," Perspective, Nov. 11) - his voting record got a "C" from the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. He has a lot of nerve.

Coupla days after, not ready to leave yet

My last Deep Thoughtish post might have been my last here, but I've had a few days to soak in the sun and I'm not quite ready to turn out the lights.

(Even though I did bid an official farewell to Bookman's joint. And I intend to keep my promise not to post there as this character.)

Why keep this thing around? Well, for one reason, I might use it to document what the Dead Enders are up to these days. For instance, I just saw some online commenter boldly state "Obama had a ghost writer for his two books", which means that the ridiculous Ayers-ghosted-those-bestsellers meme is still out there. This could become a depository for such treasures.

Mostly though I haven't formulated a vision for a new, more out-in-the-open online presence. If there is to be a Senate run-off here in GA, Martin's campaign might need a freelance Gwinnettian spreading the word online, and that necessity might drive some invention.
