Have you ever had one of your kids tell you that something is not fair? Generally, they either mean that something has not gone their way, or–more often–they mean that somehow someone has not received exactly the same treatment that they received.

Some of you may have read about the effects of the toughest “immigration” law in the USA, here in Alabama. I put the word “immigration” in quotation marks because the carrying out of the law has been far from related to immigration at times. Let me give you some instances. One of our daughters and […]
I think that I have found a couple of candidates that I can support in 2012.
