Recently I read in your pages that a young man was charged with a felony for throwing eggs at the courthouse. A felony? I’m certainly not defending the errant embryo pitcher’s juvenile actions, but does a felony make sense here? It absolutely doesn’t. If my house were egged, would it result in anything approaching this sort of response? Is the house of government that much more important than our own homes? Further, in an America that increasingly favors “the system” over the citizen, it’s no wonder we are seeing frustrated people resort to the more desperate ends of their abilities to speak to power.

This is utterly ridiculous.

Perhaps we should consider the nature and character of our interface with the hired help (government).

Fire gutted a vacant house shortly before 11 a.m. Friday, leaving fire crews working hard through noon to extinguish the flames and make sure they did not spread to nearby trees or the neighboring business.

This past week, I received a telephonic Robo Call from someone stating he represented the Glynn County Republican Party. There surely must be a parallel universe with a similar name since that call was nothing but false accusations and lies about ESPLOST 3.
