While the Biden administration claims that their open border agenda is a “compassionate” and “humane” alternative to enforcing the immigration laws currently on the books, what we witnessed last week was anything but that. I spent two days on the ground at the Del Rio Sector of the U.S.-Mexi…

If Edgar Allan Poe had been an ecologist, he might have enjoyed writing a story titled “Life in the Dark: Illuminating Biodiversity in the Shadowy Haunts of Planet Earth.” The real book by that name, written by Danté Fenolio and published by Johns Hopkins University Press, is one of the most…

Christmas is a special time of year. It is a season of celebration, as we rejoice in the birth of Christ. It is a season of giving -- an expression of love and joy. When you give something away, you are making a sacrifice for another person because you care for them and desire to see them ha…

Q. You once wrote that blue pigment is not known to exist in any terrestrial or freshwater animals with backbones. I found a blue bullfrog in a marsh in Virginia. It was mostly blue with some gray blotches; it did not have green anywhere on its body. How do you explain the appearance of a fr…

When Americans sit down at the table for a holiday meal between Thanksgiving and Christmas, certain dishes come to mind — apple pie, pumpkin pie, sweet potato casserole. And, of course, cranberry sauce. But if you want a truly American meal, you can ditch the first three: of those four iconi…

When it comes to history, politicians and generals get all the glory, while no one gives credit to the engineers. Stephen Harriman Long is an interesting example. Were it not for Long, the city of Chattanooga might not exist.

It was pleasing to read in the Pulaski Citizen dated Oct. 19, 2022, County Executive Graham Stowe’s comment that he, along with 21 Commissioners recently elected, were there “not to do what’s convenient for us. We were elected to do the will of the people.”

It’s difficult to believe this election has candidates who vowed to overturn the previous election, and we are asked to vote for them. One of our political parties has an agenda and asks for votes based on abortion bans and agreement that 2020 was a “rigged election.”

What about my 14-year-old severely intellectually disabled student who was impregnated by one of the night staff at her residential program? What about my college friend who was brutally raped and was left with a traumatic brain injury and found out she was pregnant from that rape? What abou…

More mass shootings! At a grocery store, and now a school. More than 30 lives lost, so many of them children — others hurt. The perpetrator of the store shooting was identified as an 18-year-old white male who had been radicalized (filled with hate) to the extent that he traveled three hours…

With regard to Sen. Joey Hensley’s legislative update, I’d be laughing if I weren’t crying. “Cracking down on Mail-Order Abortions,” making it a felony to provide or deliver medication prescribed by a medical doctor. The reason for this criminalization of terminating an early pregnancy is su…

In years past, Americans have held a fascination for televised court cases. We heard the evidence and made our own ruling based on the arguments. It’s interesting then, that in recent years, we have been content to hear the decisions of our news media and to embrace those pronouncements as t…

Did you catch the State of the Union message March 1? I watched it and wondered if the man in Washington really couldn’t remember the events of the past year or if he was blatantly lying to the American people. Stay with me. I will explain.

In reading [the column] dated Dec. 15, 2021, “Abortion Case Could Lead to Landmark Decision” by State Sen. Joey Hensley, M.D., I am reminded of a 1981 quote by former U.S. congressman from Massachusetts, Barny Frank, speaking of anti-abortion legislators, “they believe life begins at concept…
