And there you have it.

The ABH staffers can decide what stories they want to allow commenting on, and that's fine. Placing a blanket ban is much easier than deciding which individual posts they want to cull. And it's new years day, and there's a football game to watch instead of watching the web for stupid comments.

Someone's house burning down shouldn't be a reason to block all comments. If the few jerks out there are going to get all the commenting on that story blocked, then you have to block all commenting on every Georgia football game as well, because there are jerks out there, you know. Ditto for every other story, so you might as well delete the commenting in it's entirety from your website.

FWIW Mrs Hood: Not too many people like what your son did, but I doubt many of us hold you responsible for his actions. He is, after all, a grown man now. Each one of us loves our child, even when they do bad things. I trust you'll be able to piece your house back together and live in harmony with this community.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
