@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: 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,
