Conservative groups lend support to withdrawing Georgia from national school standards

"Tish Strange of Dacula, said as an accountant she should be able to help her daughter with math homework, but the current curriculum stumps her."

Is she saying that the math curriculum is too hard and needs to be made easier? I just want to be sure I'm following this quote correctly

Teen wishing to play Santa arrested for stealing from Athens Walmart

@Joe Johnson: Ah, of course. I can't believe I overlooked that one, it's a great example. Also, if there were no mugshot and his name were Matthewtavious this board would be a different story. In that case no mugshot needed. We would be straight back to the typical comment thread of racially charged stereotypes

Teen wishing to play Santa arrested for stealing from Athens Walmart

@Joe Johnson: Joe come back. I think everyone missed your point. I interpreted you question about how this comment section would look if the offender were non-White as such: If the offender were Black, for instance, this board would be slammed with mentions of baby mommas, welfare, thugs and Obama. None of that seems to have made this board. However, there are a lot of folks focused on the simple, non-threatening, thought provoking question you posed. Three pages and counting worth of Joe Johnson playing the race card. I'm not sure exactly how you played it, but according to the board, it's been played. Well played, Joe, well played

Athens prostitution stings aim to curb trafficking of young girls

@Joe Johnson: Nice. I agree with Liberty on the quotes. Joe Johnson for police chief! I know you would have Bull's full support

Man robbed on way to visit girlfriend

There is no way to know if the rifle was automatic unless it was fired. The police should know that. Was that part of the story actually in the police report, or was it incorrect reporting by ABH?

Thief takes donations for restaurant worker

@Scooby Doo: You're no overachiever, but you certainly provided more than enough racism for my tastes. Well done... I guess

Thief takes donations for restaurant worker

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that none of you would consider this thread racist. FYI, using these names instead of saying Black or White is not a very good coverup.

Prosecutor to seek life for man accused of murdering wife

@zebra dove: The William James name drop was a nice try, but it's still quite apparent that you know nothing about schizophrenia. Just try treating the symptoms with psychotherapy alone and see how far that gets you. Although the drug industry may have a large and often detrimental influence on treatment methods, the harm they do isn't much different from, say, someone on the internet giving a professional opinion when they aren't actually a professional

Oh, can we please get the link to the original arrest story? Actually, I don't even need the story, just the comments.

    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
