Old Cars and Ex's: When Is It Time To Say Goodbye?

January 20, 2012

Have you ever had a car for years? Did you know the ins and outs, bumps and bruises, and quick tricks to your vehicle? We know exactly where to hit on the dash to get the air conditioning running smooth, we know the special tricks to opening the doors without sounding the alarm, and we know the precautions to keep the vehicle running. Some people even name their cars! People become emotionally attached to their vehicles, kind of like a relationship with an old significant other. You know the in's and out's of your old lover just like your old car. Sometimes relationships last forever, especially if you've made the right investments to keep it running smoothly. On the other hand, sometimes it is just necessary to move on because you know you deserve better. Regardless of it's sentimental value, sometimes it's necessary for our own well-being to put the emotions aside and upgrade to a newer model. Have you ever had a 'clunker' (and I'm not just talking about a car!)? What was your reasoning for upgrading and leaving your old ride in the dust?

    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
