Today's Opinions

  • Just a little more

    Perhaps the most quoted line from the blockbuster movie, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” (It was the top money maker last weekend, grossing over $19 million, underscoring the truth in its title, “Money Never Sleeps.”) will be the line where Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas)  — having served eight years in prison for insider trading — speaks before a standing-room- only crowd of mesmerized listeners. Gekko says, “Someone reminded me I once said, ‘Greed is good.’ Now it seems it’s legal.”

  • The preacher and the Koran

    I never won an argument by yelling at another person.

    I never stopped an argument by hurting another person as much as they have hurt me.

    It’s been really big news about the Florida preacher who was going to have the “burn a Koran” day at his church. The Koran is the basis of the Muslim faith, and as it would if there was a “burn a Bible” day, produced a huge outcry from Muslims. So much so that there have been deaths and shootings overseas from this incident.

    Can you imagine what that must feel like?

  • Readers Write: Reader not happy with Corbett's comments

    Dear Editor,

  • Sudan: The mission fields

    I have a sister, Mary, who married a man named Bernard. Bernard was born and raised in Marion County. Yet, despite that, we have taught him to eat with a knife and fork, use indoor plumbing, and take more than one bath a week. We’re still working on the spoon.

    Just kidding.

  • Kids

    Kids. You can’t beat them. At least not where it shows. Just joking.

    Normally, kids, after a certain age, are embarrassed to be seen with their parents. It’s just a total lack of maturity on their part.

    Take me, for instance.

    What kid in their right mind wouldn’t want to be seen with me at their side out in public? Several adults, who will remain nameless, might not, but what kid? After all, they’re not as intelligent as you are due to their lack of years on this Earth.

  • Disappointing comments from an educational leader

    Disappointed.

    That’s the word that best describes how I feel about comments made at last week’s school board tax hearing.

  • The dream is bigger than the game

    It had taken us three years to accomplish our goal, but we did it, last weekend.

  • Still investing with Mr. S. Willey

    Institutional Investor - Past year financial investor who’s now locked up in a nuthouse.

    S. Willey, Financial Advisor

    Hey everybody!

    Man, what an economy.

    We’ve got bankruptcies and home foreclosures galore. The stock market is acting like that crazy aunt you keep locked up in the basement. Shoot, interest rates are so low that even if you do have some money, you just about have to pay the bank to hold it for you.
