Tired of politicians? Get on your soap box!

            We have been inundated with national politics for months — heck, it will be more than a year by the time the election rolls around. If you're tired of listening to the same faces telling you what they will do to save the country, why not do it yourself?
            And Augusta, Georgia, has just the place.
            In the heart of the city there's a soap box with your name on it. Actually, the name is Ivory Soap, but it's there for your pleasure. In olden days, people would turn over a soap box to use as a podium for public speaking, which is where the expression, "getting on your soapbox" comes from. To put it in a sentence: "She's on her soapbox again about whether y'all is a real word or not."
            To give you an idea, that's me on my Augusta soapbox, letting the word know that yes, indeed, y'all is a word!
