@Willow: Since you plussed one of my comments and negged the other, let me see if you can neutrally receive some insight.

E.J. makes a plan to antagonize. Her first and second post on this thread were nothing but efforts to antagonize. If you cannot see that, you have not been paying attention.

The first post: Hitting the absolute height of either passive-aggression or purposeful obtuseness, I saw it quite clearly as an effort to begin an attack on this thread.

The second post: in an attempt to reframe this thread and then create drama where none existed (note that none of us had said much about the overall conflict prior), she decided to make this about preferring one nationality over another. None of us had done that. She was trying to tell us what our "point" was, then tell us why it was wrong.

As to your offense at this thread, I'm sorry to have to say it, but you are being woefully one-sided. You berate some of the posters for making quips, but not E.J. Was her first post not merely a quip meant to denigrate the idea that this item should be highlighted? Think on it and get back to me.

    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
