Column: These billboards have eyes
JIM HIGHTOWER OtherWords AUSTIN, Texas — OK people, we need to discuss billboards. Yes, we really must. At best, these giant corporate placards are problematic — they loom garishly over us, clutter our landscapes, and intrude into our communities with no respect for local aesthetics...

Column: The definition of love
The telephone rang one Saturday morning several years ago as we were preparing to go to my husband’s great uncle’s funeral. My husband answered. He came downstairs a few minutes later with an interesting look on his face. I glanced up quickly from the sash I was tying on our daughter’s...

Column: Biden can't bean Clinton; she can do that herself
WASHINGTON — Maybe Joe Biden can help Hillary Clinton get her groove back. Or, get her groove at all. It’s been sorely missing this cam-paign. Clinton is at her best, or at least does best with voters, when she’s down. See the misty-eyed moment in New Hampshire 2008.

Scott Rall: Having a plan and implementing it are two very different things
So this author weighs 230 pounds. The author wants to weigh 200 pounds. I have a plan. Eat less, exercise more and give up my two favorite things — French fries and Dorito nacho chips. I just simply implement the plan and in a few short months, all is well, and the desired result...
