Martin Luther King's children battling over estate

This isn't news, they have been fighting over money forever.

If he lives he won't forget that day, the pain of burns is a pain that keeps on giving.

Georgia lawmaker seeks shorter early-voting periods for small cities

Voting should be on one day only, and it should be on a Saturday when most people don't work.

Nicholson teen charged with threatening students and Atlanta TV station

Saavedra's threats indicates he doesn't play well with his peers, and might be a monster himself. This "rapper" should learn to control himself.

1 day after storm, Atlanta highways still gridlocked

I saw Mohammad Reed whine about how he didn't have enough warning about the approaching ice/snow storm. Doesn't he watch the news? We knew about it days ago.

The new face of food stamps: working-age Americans

I wonder how much of obama's speech will be spent on why he didn't fulfill his promise about a transparent government and his promise to balance the budget? He will probably allocate about as much time on those two issues as how he plans to reduce the national debt.

@Athens_Rottweiler: That's sad, as many as possible should benefit from the removal of these murderers.

Reserve a seat for him in the electric chair so stockholders of the Southern Co can reap benefits when the switch is thrown on this killer.

VIDEO: Police search for motive in deadly Purdue shooting

When I first read this headline I was wondering if it was "Chicken" Perdue, or "Lying" Purdue.

Bill to legalize pygmy hedgehog pets in Georgia introduced

Ask Florida how they like the idea of everyone being able to have pythons as pets. When they get large the owners put them beside a road and they have become a danger to the animals native to Florida. I would vote "NO" to hedgehogs. Remember the exotic walking catfish? BTW, fire ants came in to our beloved South in Mobile, Alabama.

Athens school buses fitted with cameras to catch motorists ignoring stop arms

[quote][b]E.J.[/b] - While they were at it, they should have installed two interior cameras to tame the students.

I agree, the driver has enough problems driving the bus.

VIDEO: Former Virginia governor, wife indicted for corruption

I don't trust a man in debt whose wife wears an expensive gown he nor she can't afford regardless their political party. Maybe they should have taken Nixon's advice and let his wife wear one from J C Penny.

Georgia school system on probation to learn fate

Under the guidance of Mr. Jim Cherry the Dekalb Co School System was on the list of the top in the nation. It is sad to see how low a great school system can sink in performance. The amount of money spent per child has increased astronomically, but the educational levels of the students have decreased. It is time for the citizens of Dekalb to demand leadership which can return it to its former performance level.

Georgia horse-racing supporters see hope down the stretch

Florida and Kentucky generate a lot of tax money from horse racing, why not Georgia? I remember how people were against the lottery, but it has produced money for education. Horse racing might give property owners some relief in our beloved state.

Put him on the chain gang, but use smaller chains because as he mean as he is he might slip through the adult size chains.

Unions angered by Postal Service's Staples outlets

[quote][b]mpd0.59[/b] - "...the Postal Service is simply following the trend of other businesses such as banks and medical clinics opening in grocery and drug stores to get more customers and save overhead costs."
The difference is those outreach stores are staffed by their employees, not by employees of the host store. For example, if I go to a Sun Trust branch inside a Publix, it's staffed by Sun Trust employees, not Publix employees. What kind of legal issues are there with staffing a USPS branch with outside employees? Who's libel if the Staples employee steals my high value package?
[/quote]

I've had a number of items stolen by postal employees, and all I got from the post office was, "I'm sorry". I tried to mail a package last Saturday at a post office and they were only open from 10 until 12. I wish a local Staples had been available to mail my package. Government unions have ruined government services.

Ohio killer's execution takes almost 25 minutes

[quote][b]jasonterryy[/b] -
Wow broke out the thesaurus for me, you must be serious (using big boy words like deleterious and hyperbolic shows that you're REALLY smart by the way) . Two things: 1) Yeah there were public executions back then, and if that's better then by your logic we should bring back slavery. But why stop at the founding fathers? If we should bring something back because it was commonplace over 200 years ago, let's go all the way back to 11th century and bring back the crusades, or go back to Babylonian law and saw people's hands off for stealing a loaf of bread. Genius plan for a developed country. 2) You know murderers don't take into account the punishment when they're committing murder right? RIGHT?? Just like if we made gun control laws stricter it would only make it harder for law abiding people to buy guns. It's ridiculous. You can change the law to state that you'll be tortured for the rest of your life and your family will be thrown into a gulag and murderers will still be murderers because THEY DON'T CARE. If anything public executions would make martyrs out of murderers, thereby having your plan completely backfire. He probably deserved to die for what he did, but he's still a human being and deserves to die humanely.
[/quote]

1st degree murder means he planed the murder, it wasn't an accident. I bet he thought about his future sitting in his cell the last day he lived.

So you still think the founding fathers like Jefferson, Mason, Madison, and Washington were psychos? I am elated I'm in such good company. BTW, I studied English and composition at UGA, go Dawgs.

So now you want to watch a man die? There's a word for people like you, and it's psycopath.
[/quote]

I have no desire to watch a person die, I've seen enough people die. I believe public executions should be held just like the founding fathers of out country thought; to help murderers get their minds right and prevent deaths.

People who resort to conjecture to degrade others they don't know should think before they attack with deleterious hyperbolic remarks. Bless your little heart.

    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, 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 pol
