Spring

Spring is beautiful. In the rolling hills of Tennessee the weather is crisp and cool with more days of warmth that bring a much needed break from the cold bare winter.

Roy Herron’s Red Herring – SB2993

March 25, 2006
By

I’m always suspicious when I see those who are normally in favor of killing unborn children suddenly positioning themselves to be pro-life.

March 22, 2006
By

I received an “urgent appeal” from Planned Parenthood today that said they needed me to contact the 2006 Public Health Family Assistance Sub-Comm concerning SJR-127 which just passed the Senate.
