I actually feel bad for this guy - I can't imagine having to live with with the guilt of an awful mistake that took someone's life. These things can happen to anybody and soooo fast...

I once nearly turned in front of a motorcycle while at the beach. It was nighttime and I didn't see him because there was a lot of traffic and I couldn't distinguish his one headlight from the car behind him, nor could I hear his quiet pipes. Luckily I saw the flash of white paint as he slammed on his brakes and turned the bike slightly and was able to stop for him to get around the front of my car. He got pretty squirrelly but barely saved it and if I hadn't seen him waver it would have been a disaster...he would never have stopped in time. Despite this experience I love jumping on the bike with my significant other for a joy ride so I'd like to remind everyone to ALWAYS ALWAYS be watching for motorcyles!

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    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
