Advice for candidates

To David Perdue, Jack Kingston and Michelle Nunn: Congratulations on making it this far in your quest to become our newest U.S. Senator. As you prepare for the next phase of your campaign, I thought I would pass along to you some unsolicited advice for your consideration. Please don't thank me. It was either this or clean out my sock drawer.

Love means never saying you’re sorry — maybe

There's a few words that are fairly hard to say. "I love you" is usually the hard one for many; I know the ex didn't utter those words until we had been dating about a year. Don't ask why I married that fool. The only explanation I can give is that I love a challenge.
