My favorite foreign policy column cliché of the previous decade is, without a doubt, the Friedman Unit.

It’s a reference to New York Times foreign policy columnist Thomas Friedman. Fair and Accuracy in Reporting noted that, between November 2003 and May 2006, Friedman used some form of the phrase “the next six months is crucial in Iraq”...

The last U.S. combat troops left Iraq on August 19. War over. Woohoo!

Take that, you stupid 9/11 terrorists who had absolutely nothing at all to do with Saddam Hussein or Iraq. Boo ya!

No. Wait. Upon further review, it turns out the war isn’t exactly over.

The combat troops are out, but there are still roughly 50,000 non-combat troops in Iraq. Iraq still has the third largest foreign...

ATLANTA — Federal agents are seeking to hire Ebonics translators to help interpret wiretapped conversations involving targets of undercover drug investigations.

The Drug Enforcement Administration recently sent memos asking companies that provide translation services to help it find...

A U.S. District Court judge in Macon refused to block enforcement of the Georgia law banning gun permit holders from bringing guns to places of worship.

The suit to block the enforcement law was brought by GeorgiaCarry.org and a church in Thomaston. It followed the June U.S. Supreme Court ruling stating the Second Amendment right of individuals to have guns applied to state and local laws....

Atlanta Housing Authority's blog features a post taking issue with an August 13 Fresh Loaf post I wrote about Congressional testimony from three Georgia State University sociology professors noting the death of several elderly public housing residents relocated from senior high-rises. AHA says there's no evidence linking the deaths to the moves.

The day after he defeated Karen Handel for the GOP gubernatorial nomination, I called Nathan Deal a racist on CL's Fresh Loaf blog because of his active participation in the so-called "birther" movement.

It didn't surprise me when the post generated online rancor. I was surprised, however, when my CL colleagues pushed back, arguing it's not fair to call Deal a racist when we aren't privy to...

The cover of Time magazine’s August 9, 2010 issue is a portrait of an 18-year-old Afghan woman named Aisha. A Taliban gang amputated Aisha’s nose and ears with a knife as punishment after Aisha had the temerity to run away from her husband’s house to escape her abusive in-laws. Left on a mountain to bleed to death, Aisha survived. She’s now a beautiful woman with a hole in the middle of her...

John Lennon once sang "God is a concept by which we measure our pain."

WSB talk radio is moving to 95.5 The Beat!!

Does this mean we can look forward to Neal Boortz explaining how California Gurlz are ghetto trash because they spend their welfare checks on bikini tops and Daisy Dukes? And maybe Clark Howard can have Travie McCoy in-studio to talk about how listeners should keep their fives, tens and Bens separate?!?!?

I don't often re-read my old Don't Panic columns. It feels like looking at old yearbook pictures. But the beginning of Ramadan on Wednesday prompted a bit of satisfying self-Googling:

So for those of you who want to know what Ramadan is, here's my fatwa-worthy explanation:

Fasting during Ramadan is intended to instill in Muslims self-control and patience. It's training, just in case God ever...

In April, three Georgia State sociology professors testified to Congress about preserving public housing.
