jtsim: Hell no it wasn't handled correctly. The hospital should have let him pay for the refill and no harm would have been done. This is another example of people that think they have a little bit of power...

    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.

An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
