It appears the revolution has the support of the people.

I was very excited yesterday about the FairTax Rally being held at the Gwinnett Convention Center. Apparently I wasn't the only one. While headed to the rally a little after 6pm (it was scheduled to start at 7:30), it was announced on the WSB Radio that they had already reached capacity and were unable to allow any more persons into the the venue. I was dissappointed that I wasn't able to attend the function myself, but it was very exciting to know there was such a great response. Hopefully this will be the first of many successful events around the country.

These Guys are Good!

Operation 19th Hole is underway. Several bases in have Iraq have now installed driving ranges and putting areas for our deployed men and women. All that is lacking is the equipment to put these new facilities to good use.

I am answering the call here in the ATL to solicit donations from some major local retail shops, golf courses and individuals. Whether it is that old driver you never hit well anyway, the bag that got replaced at Christmas or just a few dozen balls from your shag bag, every little bit helps.

If you have something to contribute or would like to assist in the gathering effort please contact me at Op19thHole@earthlink.net

At the end of the day, Baseball is a good thing

I know Major League Baseball has its issues -- performance enhancement, player salaries, Bud Selig.....the list goes on. Even so, I contend that for a family friendly experience from a professional sport, MLB is pretty hard to beat. And the value - tickets for $5 and they let you bring in your own food.

Yesterday, the family and I went to see the Atlanta Braves battle the "hated" New York Mets. It was a Murphy-Candler Little League Day at Turner Field, which meant that several families we know, had boys and girls participating in a pre-game parade around the field. Some of the younger ones even got to participate in little mini-games staged in the outfield.

The day was a little chilly, but we had plenty of peanuts and other snacks to help keep us warm. The game was great. The Braves never trailed and closed things out with a dramatic diving catch by 2nd year local boy Jeff Franceour.

The best part is that after the game the day only got better. After Sunday day games i…
