Heard reflects on 20 years in state government

@Jefferson River:

Well, of course, but your former representative easily answered emails because he was 80 miles away, on the other side of Atlanta where he permanently lives. I bet you wouldn't have been able to ask him a question in person unless he was running for re-election or you were in Atlanta (or if he was being honored at an event in Athens). Just saying.

It's a disgrace that Keith Heard is telling people he's going to "take his seat back." I bet Frye and his brain trust will be ready to roll if Heard dares.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s

Oconee sheriff boycotts gun dealer over gun ban to public

Yeah, the last thing we need in this area is another backwoods redneck playing political games with public perception. You best bet we're deploying several PACs to your area with tens-of-thousands-of-dollars to educate people about who Scott Berry 'really' is and what he stands for.

Let's discuss Smithgate, shall we?

    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.
