Blackmon: Georgia's patchwork approach to education isn't working

Home of Sandy Hook shooter transferred to Newtown

I can't see how they can do anything with this house except tear it down. Or set it on fire to train the fire department. This is not a knee-jerk reaction -- I've been thinking about it since I first read the article last night.

@Joe Johnson: I know, Joe, and it's a shame they can't get a literate headline writer there at the ABH.

To both of you: the article *does* make sense but the headline doesn't. (Once again...)

Suspects identified in weekend Athens shooting that riddled car with bullets

@The Oracle of the Athens Banner Herald: Exactly! And how amazing that they weren't injured even though they were "riddled with bullets."

Also if Lawson doesn't have a criminal record, why does he already have a mug shot?

Athens officials to consider wildflowers to combat Atlanta Highway woes

It'll take a lot more than wildflowers, but yes, that's a good start. As are the access roads.

Blackmon: Time to rise up against student testing regimen

Bless you, Myra. But I still feel helpless -- I felt helpless when I was in the classroom, and now I feel helpless as a grandparent.

Seems to me the bus is 29 years old......

Either way though, it's a great idea for all involved.

    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.
