Gov. Deal set to sign bill expanding gun rights in Georgia

How does this law make folks safer? I'm leery of carriers. Why do they need to feel safer? What are they afraid of? If a person needs to feel empowered, important, respected, and the like, he/she can achieve a lot through community and charitable services. Arming ourselves speaks to the negative.
When this gun toting freedom goes awry, we will remember just who to blame.

Athens mom says 12-year-old punched her 5-year-old

12 vs. 5 ? The mother should press charges. That might be the only way for this bully to get (hopefully)straightened out. @ 1965 reader Bullying was wrong in the 70's and it's wrong forever.

    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
