We do not need Hillary Clinton in office. She is like what we have in there now — doesn’t know what a lie is. Sometime back, a man working for our nation was trapped in Libya, begging for help. Clinton would not let rescuers go help him.

It is outrageous that the top Alabama public officials of all three branches of government, the legislative, executive and judicial, are guilty of or are under investigation for ethics or corruption charges. It is humiliating and disgraceful for Alabama.

Muhammad Ali dies at 74. What can you say when a childhood hero dies? For me, he was The Greatest. He talked the talk because he could walk the walk. He was like other great American athletes — Jim Thorpe, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Bo Jackson — who exemplified Americanism, not born to privilege…
