@E.J.: You know, I was probably all omniscient, verbally desperate, and fired up at his age too, and while I appreciate constructive, well thought-out opinion I just don't see any excuse for spamming a site relentlessly and trolling everyone you disagree with for 10 plus pages every time religion, politics, or the economy comes up. 26 out of 45 comments in one story is spam, not a conversation...pure and simple. I had just had enough and felt like sharing my opinion. Should have been the bigger person and just ignored him like I've been doing since the beginning but I didn't and life moves on. By simply placing him on ignore though I notice that all of the 10 page posts turn into 2 page posts and if anything it makes the whole conversation much more navigable. I mean, he thinks I'm a woman that does drugs. If we're going to converse about big boy topics I'd at least like to debate with someone that pays attention and has basic reading comprehension skills. Whatever. Rant over. Happy Capitalist Holiday, everyone.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
