@Bellehowell: Do either of you actually have children? If so, I find it hard to believe you'd be cool with a stranger beating them.

Yes I do. I let him learn from his mistakes. He knows how to behave in public and he's 1/4 the age of this kid. If the kid was running around the store, he was not with his father. How was the sales clerk to know that this child wasn't alone in the store running amuck? No parent in sight, what do you do? Kid threw a cookie jar at her. What do you do? She's 39. probably a hard-working mom herself. At 39, I'm impressed she was able to chase down and catch an unruly 8 year old boy. Those kids are quick! Plus, they're the size of 10-11 year old kids these days.

"BEATING?" Spanking and beating are totally different. I was spanked as a child. If I was at someone else's house acting the fool, I got spanked. When I got home, there was usually another spanking waiting for me. Was I beat? No. Was I disciplined? Yes. Spare the rod and spoil the child.

Lastly, if my child was acting this unruly among strangers in public, he's made his own bed. Would I call the cops on this woman? Nope. I would thank her for teaching my kid a lesson.

    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
