This kid has ruined someone else's life with his dangerous, irresponsible behavior and deserves nothing less than the full extent of the law being brought down on him. So drunk at 7am that you don't even notice that you are driving 3 miles on a wheel rim? Damn!posted @ Tuesday, June 18, 2013 - 11:04
@Humbucker bob: You are not incorrect about texting and driving, but you are utterly tone deaf about when to discuss it. Have you considered just deleting your insensitive and uninformed comment, instead of repeatedly sort-of apologizing? Just a suggestion.posted @ Monday, June 17, 2013 - 15:15
Ok, seriously, economies do not turn on a dime and the effects do not always manifest themselves for everyone very quickly. If you're republican, call it your precious "trickle down". Whether or not this news directly effects your finances positively yet or not (if it makes you feel better, it really doesn't help me much in my day-to-day finances either) it IS good news and will, hopefully, mean better times for all in the not-too-distant future.
Or we can have another ridiculous, unnecessary debt-ceiling fight and watch it all go down the tubes again. Things are getting better in minute steps. Let's hope Congress doesn't do what it usually does and f*&k it all up.posted @ Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - 09:39
This is all Barack Hussein Obama's fault! OOOOO, I hate him so much! The republicans want us all to wallow in poverty while they and their sugar daddies live it up. Why won't he just let that happen already? What a jerk!posted @ Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - 09:34
Tim Lincecum is called "the Freak", and he's won Cy Youngs. I guess there's a chance that they meant it like that, but somehow I doubt it, since the family required an apology. But what good does that do? It's too late, it's out there and an apology won't undo it. Maybe they could reprint, with "The Jackass" next to the name of the person responsible.posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 15:17
This is good news, 'cause if there's one thing Athens desperately needs, it's more residential rental space for students to live in.posted @ Monday, May 6, 2013 - 15:09

@crankyyankee: Cranky, running from the assumption that all presidents have distorted the unemployment numbers to make themselves look better (I share your "they're all crooked" point of view), does that not still mean, comparatively, that the unemployment rate has improved? Don't get me wrong, I know it's still tough out there for way too many people, but if Bush and previous presidents played by the same twisted rules, then it's still an improvement, even if it doesn't really reflect the number of people who really don't have job.posted @ Thursday, April 25, 2013 - 14:00
If only they could have organized a one-time-only, all-4-member REM reunion concert for Sanford, maybe that would have been more appropriate, if not almost completely implausible.
I don't care about these artists really either, but I assume they booked them because they felt certain they could sell it out, and they did, so I guess they were right on that one. Maybe a little more Rock next time.posted @ Thursday, April 18, 2013 - 16:18
@SchemerDiabolicus: Oh, well, if that's the case......I can't really argue with that.posted @ Thursday, April 18, 2013 - 16:14
@SchemerDiabolicus: Oh, come on. What's your problem with it? It ain't the Sistine Chapel or something. It's a stadium. They're used for concerts and other events all the time, all over the world, and to great profits, I might add. Hey, I understand how the purists feel, but it's not like a concert every year or two is going to cause the stadium to collapse into the ground. Mellow out.
Besides, you should just be glad it wasn't a monster truck rally or something like that. That would REALLY damage the old girls turf, for sure.posted @ Thursday, April 18, 2013 - 14:50

Hey, everyone goes of the rails a little bit when they go to college, but this bozo has taken it to incredibly stupid levels. Time for a detox program or something.

Drunk guy firing a weapon in the wrong direction and risking the lives of others, all because he loses his [filtered word] in a moment of anger. Since our state legislature wants to make it legal for people to carry guns in bars, you'd better get used to reading these kinds of stories (yeah, I know, the guy obviously doesn't have a license. That's kind of beside the point. The point is that alcohol and guns, whether the person is carrying the gun legally or not, make for a terrible combo.)posted @ Thursday, March 14, 2013 - 09:01

Not that Chipper couldn't be a serviceable addition to the Yanks (DH would actually be a great way for him to extend his career. I don't know about working the field anymore though), but how desperate do the Yankees have to be to chase after a guy who very, very publicly retired last year (Chipper) and another player whom NO ONE else thinks can play at an MLB level anymore (Lee?)
It would make me pretty sad if I had to see Chipper come out retirement and play for the Yanks. Mostly though, I am just laughing and enjoying the sight of the mighty Yankees having to scramble to fill their line-up. Go Braves!posted @ Monday, March 11, 2013 - 13:47

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person. But as someone who has followed Nick?s career since I became a fan in 1998, not just in the Backstreet Boys, but as a solo artist, I?ve always thought we had a lot in common besides being the same age. read more
The Athens Banner-Herald sports staff combined to win 11 individual awards on Sunday at the Georgia Sports Writers Association's annual meeting in Marietta. You can get a few more details on that in this story ? "Banner-Herald sports staff wins 11 awards" ? and I thought I'd provide some links to the winning stories for the curious. The awards were for the sports staff's work in 2012. read more
