Missing horse turns up in another Madison County farm pasture

There was a guy charged with stealing a horse. His excuse was that he only stole a rope and there just happened to be a horse on the end of it.

John Elway's son pleads guilty to disturbing peace

If he was the son of John Smith instead of John Elway he wouldn't have got off so easy. But, that's just the way things work.

Filler: Switch isn't appropriate discipline for 4-year-old

Just because a kid gets spanked or a whipping growing up doesn't mean he will turn out bad, just like the kids that don't get spanked or a whipping always turn out good.

FSU benches Winston for 1st half of Clemson game

[quote][b]Oistrakh[/b] - might be the reason Pruitt left that team.[/quote]

Could be. I don't think Winston would be playing this weekend if he was at Ga. At least I hope not.

Bushes figure prominently in Georgia Senate race

Will I vote for Perdue and Deal because they're republicans?...No, I'll be voting for them because Nunn and Carter are "democrats." The epitome of lies and liars.

When are people going to wake up and quit praising these thugs as heroes. Jimbo Fisher doesn't care about morality or what's right. He just cares about wins. He and Fla. St. should be ashamed.

Georgia DC Pruitt shoulders blame, says defense, 'not doing our job'

Pruitt- I put the players in a situation where they didn't have a chance to be successful and that's my fault.

Bobo- I called the right plays but the players didn't execute them and that's not my fault.

Vikings bar Peterson from all team activities

I don't know how bad Peterson whipped his son, but these days it's damn if you do and damn if you don't. I heard one talking head say you should never whip a child. You should reason with them. Yeah, that seems to be working real good.

Richt defends Bobo, ill-fated late-game play

[quote][b]wfmcgee[/b] - To have tried to "pound the ball in" would not have been good play calling and may have resulted in Gurley being injuried.[/quote]

So Ga. should never give Gurley the ball when they're inside the five yard line because he may get injured. That may be the lamest excuse yet. I don't think Richt would even use that excuse.

Professor Lives In A 36-Square-Foot Dumpster

Braves' new stadium has a name: SunTrust Park

Well, would you change your name to SunTrust for a million bucks? How about a billion? Just asking.

Blog: UGA's 1st-and-goal: 'If we would have scored a TD, it was the greatest play in history' (w/H.Mason video)

"If we would have scored a touchdown, it was the greatest play in history." Hicks said. Apparently Hicks doesn't know much about the history of Ga. football.

Vikings bring back Peterson despite abuse charge

If he was a bench warmer would he be playing? Probably not.
Will the home crowd cheer and accept him? Yep. That's the way sports fans are. If you're on my team and you are a star. You can't do any wrong. Like crankyyankee said," spineless and shallow."

Pitts: Two questions on economics and politics

Maybe, maybe not. I'm not a registered republican, but I would never vote for a democrat that walks in lockstep with Obama.

That was such an idiotic statement it actually made me laugh. We both know why they vote for democrats. "Because, democrats love us and give us free stuff." Btw, you are a prime example of a democrat. A mindless zombie.

Georgia Bulldogs ready to hit back after loss to South Carolina

When you lose look for excuses. Wet ball, bad officiating, whatever. Has Mark Richt ever said, we were poorly coached?... Top ten recruits every year so what else can it be but coaching. Ga. has the third most players in the NFL, but that hasn't transpired into a national championship for the dawgs. Oh, well. They should beat up on little Troy this weekend.

Ferguson video shows witness raising hands in air

[quote][b]melquiades[/b] - So what is your source of what you call facts?[/quote]

Strong arm robbery is a fact. Brown having pot in his blood stream is a fact. Officer Wilson was taken to the hospital for a swollen face is a fact.

Ferguson video shows witness raising hands in air

[quote][b]melquiades[/b] - @theold33: and you've pretty much exonerated him? I guess you are impyling that if a suspect has a physical alteration with an LEO, then that LEO is entitled to shoot him to death later, even if he's standing with his hands up?[/quote]

You need to read my post again, slowly this time. I said what happened between Brown beating Wilson and being shot will come out in the grand jury report. Everything else I stated is fact. And you don't know that Brown was standing with his hands in the air giving up until the official report comes out.

    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 police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
