Homophobia is Alive and Well
J. Daniel Young A recent emergency meeting at the Ben Hill County Board of Education is a stark reminder that homophobia is alive and well in South Georgia. I learned of Dawn Clements from my sister-in-law and niece in recent years. My niece had Ms. Clements in both middle school and high school as a…
Tell me, why do I live here again?
“These days, it’s not just my family’s craziness that has me questioning my reason for sticking around.”
Trying NOT to be Trendy
For whatever reason this week, I was looking at the online gravesites of my real father and grandfather. That’s when I noticed a trend that I had a tickling in back of my grey matter for a few years now. They both died at 53. Guess what guys? I am 53! So, I’ve had to…
What the GOP did while you were on TikTok
Why is it that anything that makes white people feel uncomfortable, they want to ban?
The CULT of Trump
Another example of the cult of Trump still in action in Georgia. This week, one of my coworkers commented about how Biden is signing everything put before him. When I explained that Trump only signed things the way my coworker was accusing Biden, he couldn’t respond. I pressed him further, asking what did Trump actually…
The Downfall of Democracy

All during the 2016 election cycle, we heard the Orange Menace talk about how much we were going to be “winning.” He commented that there will be so much winning that we’ll get tired of winning. I haven’t seen evidence enough for me to be tired of winning. As a matter of fact, I haven’t…
Self love in the time of Covid
As last week headed toward an end, I found myself more and more short tempered. With the amount of crap from coworkers or stupidity from family members, I knew that I needed a break because if I didn’t, I would snap at the next person who issued a wrong word my way. I stopped by…
The death of integrity
Several years ago when I worked at Pyxis Corporation, an item on a self review was the self determination of your integrity. In as far as work was concerned, I felt then and still do that I had tons of integrity in the workplace. My manager at the time was a back-stabbing little troll of…
