I pray the heavy conscience of some other relative will weigh enough to allow some more names to be named, which has happened recently unbeknownst to me until a radio broadcast this morning.posted @ Friday, July 25, 2014 - 20:07
@nowheregirl: that's great, and I applaud your relative, but what is the difference between celebrating your relative's accomplishment( and finding the names of the people who perpetrated this heinous crime?posted @ Friday, July 25, 2014 - 15:22
Folks, it's still an unsolved crime. I maintain that most of those of you who insist on burying this part of our recent past might just have a few relatives responsible for the last mass lynching in the United States.posted @ Friday, July 25, 2014 - 09:45
@scarborj: so using all capital letters and overuse of exclamation points does not hide the fact that you seem very xenophobic to meposted @ Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 16:02
Additionally I did not hear any words of blame from this future Senator from the State of Georgia who will be a strong leader just like her father isposted @ Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 14:15
@snarkydude: please do not presume to speak for all Georgians. I would suggest you paint far too broad a brushstroke in most of your worn out and hackneyed generalizations. Why don't you give her a chance and make up your mind yourself instead of repeating tired old talking points and cliches designed to keep two Georgias in this state, instead of coming together as one?posted @ Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 14:11

@Kwijibo Junior: thanks for your plural possessive.

Among the other revelations one should know before entering this Pit from Hell, no questions from the audience and you must be receive pre-clearance from the GOP Collective before you are allowed to record any part, and you have to record the whole "debate" once you have been deemed worthy.posted @ Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - 10:07
I think the opening sentence should be reconstructed a bit to encompass the Republican nominee status of the winner of the runoffposted @ Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - 14:39
@Used2baFreeCountry: hate to burst your bubble, but you voted exactly the same as this liberal former three time chair of the Democratic party in Oconee County. I think the only other race you get to decide is the Buck-Woods choice in the Ga. School superintendent and US Senate race. I would suggest researching the facts and making up your own mind on both those races.posted @ Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - 09:22
Senator Nunn's daughter will be a very good Senator for the entire State of Georgia, just like her father Sam Nunn.posted @ Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - 09:04

Really well written and comprehensive background on a great individualposted @ Monday, June 30, 2014 - 09:37
@Used2baFreeCountry: correct, you do not have to declare a party at the polls or anytime for that matter.
Whoever wrote this story left out a good deal of pertinent information:
Oconee County is voting on the Post 3 Board of Commissioners' race between incumbent Margaret Hale and seemingly perpetual candidate W.E. "Bubber" Wilkes. Early voting is at the Board of Elections office at 10 Court Street next to the Oconee County Court House in downtown Watkinsville.
Only those who ask for a Republican ballot can vote in that lone local race between Wilkes and Hale, and you cannot vote in that contest if you chose a Democratic ballot in the May primary.
You may vote in the Runoff if you are registered even if you did not vote in the primary. You do not have to be a member of the Republican party or the Democratic party to vote in either parties' Runoff, but you must be registered to vote.
Democratic voters do get to choose between Valarie Wilson of Decatur and State Representative Alisa Thomas Morgan to determine the nominee for the Georgia School superintendent race in the fall.
Republicans will also get to choose a candidate for School superintendent as well between Richard Woods and Mike Buck as well as the Senate nominee between Athens native Jack Kingston and David Perdue as well as the 10th District Congressional race between Reverend Jody Hice and Mike Collins to replace Paul Broun as the nominee to face Athens attorney and Democratic nominee Kenneth Dious in the November general election.posted @ Monday, June 30, 2014 - 09:30

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.
