    ERICKSON: Wander and die

    “The Lord’s anger burned against Israel and he made them wander in the wilderness 40 years, until the whole generation of those who had done evil in his sight was gone.”


    ERICKSON: The Marionettes’ strings

    Having been an elected Republican and someone who routinely takes the position of supporting conservatives in primaries and Republicans in general elections, the recent Mississippi runoff between Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel does crystallize for me the desires of many to start a third party.


    ERICKSON: Our present insanity

    Historian Gertrude Himmelfarb once wrote, “What was once stigmatized as deviant behavior is now tolerated and even sanctioned; what was once regarded as abnormal has been normalized ... As deviancy is normalized, so what was once normal becomes deviant. The kind of family that has been regarded...


    ERICKSON: Easy choices made tough

    My wife and I howled with laughter reading The Telegraph the other day. It was gallows humor laughter. After all the work to consolidate Macon and Bibb County, we have come to these choices and made easy ones tough.

    ERICKSON: The homefront

    Calder Pinkston staked his reputation on the consolidation of Macon and Bibb County. A lawyer and long-time political strategist for local politicians, Pinkston helped build the intellectual and financial case for consolidation.


    ERICKSON: No good reason

    Having gotten a lot of questions about the race, I am voting for Nancy Jester for State School Superintendent. Ashley Bell would also be a good choice. Both have impressive resumes and want to stop the Common Core experiment polluting our schools.


    ERICKSON: Off to the races

    May 20 is approaching. Our primaries will soon be over and the real races begin, except for the inevitable Senate runoff. Jason Carter for governor and Michelle Nunn for Senate have opposition, but their opponents are not viable. They will have no runoffs.
