The fat one seems to have learned much from his big eared buddy.

UN warns against delayed action on global warming

Cute Ben. But you don't have to pretend. Your intellectual capacity comes through no matter how you try to sound when you write.

How states fared on unemployment benefit claims

Good gosh. After 6 years wouldn't you expect layoffs to finally be getting less even with an administration that seems to enjoy killing jobs.Their primary success has been in expanding the poverty numbers to breathtaking new heights.

Allegedly drunk man nearly hits Athens police cruiser

I've had a few mixed drinks over the years that I wasn't exactly taken with but Gin and beer (Like the woman in the commercial says) sounds hideous.

Grantham on going to Louisville and the defense being 'backbone’ to winning SEC East

Mike Bobo must be the saddest person in town to see Grantham go. Todd's bumbling incompetency took all the pressure off the offense. His "team backbone" defense never saw a third down they couldn't blow. I must admit though that I don't think I ever saw a man who could do less with all the talent he had available than what Grantham did. Todd old boy you will not be missed.

Manual transmission stymies Mass. car thieves

It's interesting that 95% of all cars in America are estimated to have automatic transmissions whereas in Europe 80% are manual. Fuel efficiency has a lot to do with the discrepancy. That and driving for fun vs as a simple way of getting there.

UPDATE: Athens police identify suspects who robbed elderly good Samaritan

We seem to forget how many cameras are watching us all the time and almost everywhere. It's sad that society feels a need for them but here's a good example of why we do. Identification of these guys now may well have prevented a future crime as well as making them pay for the one they have already committed.

I'll give this one to you Jim. If one's keeping score it's still about 20 to 1 in the libs favor. But thanks for this one anyway.

Atlanta mayor traveling to Brazil on trade mission

The word boondoggle comes to mind. If I were him I wouldn't have announced this trip unless required to by law. Trade mission. Yeah, he must think we're really stupid.

Sabbaticals may help military keep women in ranks

With all the watering down of the military we're doing to be PC and get women in the ranks, God help us if we ever have to actually fight a real enemy again.

Al-Qaida-linked group ousts rivals from Syria town

I think we should give ammunition and small weapons to the rebels to extend the war as long as possible. (Nothing they could really use against us) When both sides of a conflict are your enemies you fan the fire and stand back and gloat. Reminds me of the Iraq Iran war some time ago.

How Todd Grantham will be remembered at UGA

A good nickname for our departing DC. Ole "3rd and Long".

Blog: As the Georgia Defensive Staff Turns

I cannot imagine being less worried about a coach leaving than I am about Grantham's departure. To say that his defenses were mediocre is yielding him the an amount of accomplishment that I'm not sure he deserves. He came in with high expectations and never lived up to them. At first we were told it was because we didn't have a huge defensive lineman to anchor the middle of the line to stop the run. We got several and our defense still wasn't anything to write home about. I cannot imagine what Petrino sees in him but then he's a flake too.

Madison farmer has the chops to produce humanely raised, tasty pigs

Have been reading about porcine epidemic diarrhea PED which has caused a world-wide pork shortage and has been found recently in the US. Hope it doesn't get here but maybe putting a pack or two of pork chops in the freezer might be a good idea.

Weather Channel says safety at risk in dispute

Sounds a little narcissistic to me. Equating the Weather Channel to a public utility is absurd. I can't remember the last time I, or anyone I know, actually watched it. Like jsim said, there's just too many other places to get the weather from.

    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
