  • Back to the future, again

    This feels familiar. Eerily familiar.
    Every end of the year list, every end of the year column seems as though I’m in the same exact place I was 365 days earlier.

  • Question the logic of so-called fiscal cliff

    Americans are told that they face a “fiscal cliff” if automatic federal spending cuts and tax increases occur at the end of 2012. I’m not in favor of jumping off a cliff, but the logic of the supposed threat needs to be questioned.

  • Appeals court upholds ruling in Waddy man’s penis amputation case

    A Waddy man who lost a battle in the state Court of Appeals on Friday may not be giving up his fight to have his doctor held accountable for amputating his penis.
