          You may have some explaining to do

          Have you ever typed in your name on your favorite Internet search engine? What did the results look like? How many of you are out there?

                  Another proposal from left field – Amendment 28

                  Local columnist T.J. Ray suggests that we propose and pass a 28th amendment that would make the president a non-partisan executive after he or she is elected, taking the split that parties and their differences have caused in our country.
