I’m an “all in” kind of energy person. I think we should use wind, solar, bio-fuels and any other “renewables,” out there. Heck, if wood chips would fire our economy, I’m in. I like nuclear, the ultimate renewable. We need to pressure the powers that be to allow the reuse of the [...]
When Alabama has the ball: When push came to shove in the SEC title game against Georgia, the Tide ran, ran and ran some more. They piled up a ridiculous 350 rushing yards and, to cap it off, hit Amari Cooper for a 45-yard touchdown pass that proved to be the game winner. Cooper has slowly but [...]

Would it be better to go over the fiscal cliff? I was talking to my 30 year old son this morning. He’s a DMA in Music and worked his way through grad school by getting Microsoft and Apple certifications. He’s a brilliant kid, in his first full time job in IT and moving up the [...]
My colleague, Daniel Malloy, took a look the Speaker Boehner’s plan ahead of today’s vote:

There is much “lamenting and gnashing of teeth” over the future of the Tea Party. There’s turmoil at Freedomworks, “cleansing” of Tea Party conservatives in Congress and at home and around the country, local groups want to know what’s next?
Let’s step back for a moment and look at the history. This is a movement and [...]
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and the state Senate’s two new top leaders said Monday that they are moving ahead as a “united front,” effectively ending a more than two-year feud in the chamber that affected how it did the public’s business.
