Editorial: Spending run amok

Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has long waged a campaign against the excessive government spending that has become the rule rather than the exception in Washington. For several years, he has published his "wastebook," which details some of the most egregious money-wasting projects of the federal government. Coburn's stepping down from his senatorial slot, and has released the last of his wastebooks. Some, as usual, defy comprehension. Here, according to one national media outlet, are some of the most glaring examples of how Uncle Sam can throw your money away.

Letter: Be careful on social media

I read Simone T. Owens column on "Social media is to blame?" today with interest and I have to agree with many of her comments. Her comment "to allow people to connect instantaneously and see and read what close acquaintances and friends were doing anywhere in the world" is quite true. It allows anyone reading Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others to read what that person has posted unless they have made every effort for their posts to be private. Even then "private" has a lot of holes in it.

Noble: Turkeys, Obama’s amnesty and America

In my family, it's a tradition that my daughter does all the cooking for Thanksgiving. Like all good traditions, it is a part of the fabric of our family holidays. On Wednesday before Thanksgiving, she and I went to the local Publix to buy all the ingredients for this special dinner. I know that it's special as the tape read $157.23 for this one meal's fixings, but we'll have to save the high price of groceries for another column.
