It is good to keep up with Obama, Healthcare Reform, Immigration system in crisis, troubled economy, earthquakes in Haiti, Italy, and Canada, oil spill in the Gulf, securing borders, and Troops in Afghanistan and Iraq but it is the strength of local economies that will keep America's economy strong, stable and out of the red. In my state of Georgia Rob Teilhet is running for Attorney General and is Dealing a deathblow to his opponent with an issue that pains me to my heart not to talk about. In 2009 one of the tanks at the Columbus Water Works collapses with a big boom, spilling over 6 million gallons of water into the surrounding neighborhoods and onto Columbus' major vein highway, J.R.

From persons like Obama to issues on Immigration to troops in Afghanistan and Iraq to self checkouts in Wal-Mart to the 3M self checkout system at the library to shopping online or on the phone we live in a do it your self age. These incidents are truly signs for not only my city but for the world that, that part of America that was locked away in the second part of the 20th century, silently, is now made whole again and it are those events and situations that help provide solutions to problems we face as a nation.
