It seems like every time I post something in my Editor category it’s either controversial, combative, or both. I have covered my prejudices, the racism at the Cobb County Board of Education, my thoughts on the COVID pandemic and the lie pushed by many that the 2020 election was somehow rigged.
But I will not continue to delve into these questions in this opinion piece, beyond the above recognition that they exist, and that I will likely not change my perspective on these topics without new information. noteworthy do not reach me.
Instead, I’m just going to say that I hope everyone here has a good year ahead, even the people that I don’t agree with. We are in a great country in flux, and whether we love each other or not, it is better to live together in tolerance than to undergo the stress of bearing bitterness and animosity.
I will also be making a few selfish requests (or at least requests that serve the interests of Cobb County Courier).
First of all, if you are reading this and have not subscribed to our free daily newsletter, please do so. Whether you love or hate what we do here, we post a lot of useful information, and if you subscribe to the newsletter, you will receive a daily summary of our articles with links to them.
Second, if you like what we do, you can make a monetary, one-time, or recurring contribution. We are not a non-profit organization, so contributions made to us are not tax deductible, but you will have the satisfaction of allowing us to extend our coverage to the county.
At the bottom of this article is a donation link. It will display a pop-up window which will take you to a page where you can decide if this is a one-time or recurring donation, and how much to give.
Finally, I want to encourage all of you to be active citizens. There are plenty of resources to learn more about how the county is run and what the county looks like in different ways (demographics, geography, climate, finances, etc.)
You can learn a lot about the county by regularly visiting our home page. I know a lot of people come to our site through Google search or Facebook or Twitter links to specific articles.
But I encourage you to visit our home page daily. Much like a daily newspaper, we have new content every day, on a number of useful and entertaining topics.
And finally, if I don’t have the chance to tell you over the next week, Happy New Year!
