@independentthinker: Liquor by the drink laws seem like a pretty bass ackwards way to keep big restaurant chains out of Oconee. Bottom line, it's a stupid law, and stupid laws shouldn't be kept on the books for reasons like you're describing. If people think big restaurant chains in Oconee is an issue, tackle that issue directly, not in some knucklehead passive aggressive way that affects anyone else that might want to open up a restaurant and get business that could otherwise be lost to Athens.posted @ Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 12:23
People are still going to commit murder, too. Legalize it?
Did you really think that was an intelligent and rational response? If driving an extra 5-10 minutes to commit murder in a neighboring county was perfectly legal, your analogy might have made 1% sense at least. But then again you're still comparing murder to...having a drink with dinner, so maybe not.posted @ Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 12:12
These no liquor morons blow my mind. People are still going to go out and drink--they would have just done it in other counties and still driven back to their home in Oconee. The ONLY thing the no liquor law did was keep revenue out of Oconee.
As Yeti said, next is to get rid the ridiculous Sunday alcohol law.posted @ Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 08:03
I'm a REM fan but I couldn't possibly care less about that steeple. I can also think of a gazillion other better causes to try to raise $250K for. Say like starving children for starters.posted @ Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - 12:01
I can't imagine how dumb you would have to be to have actually watched that show. You'd probably kill less brain cells chugging gasoline.posted @ Friday, October 24, 2014 - 12:21
Not sure why this was even brought to trial. If you're dumb enough to walk out into the middle of a racetrack in the middle of a race, you're attempting suicide. Period.posted @ Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - 14:34

@prognosticator: Sigh sorry prognosticator. I COMPLETELY misread your comment. That's what I get for doing too many things at once. I have 2 monitors and sometimes read things like this while I'm doing things in the other. I'm actually in complete agreement with you.
The comment was just an expression I've heard and thought was fitting for many situations (namely libtards defending people like this, which you weren't doing). I'm around some pretty colorful company quite often and don't really think too much of things like that. Please accept my apology.posted @ Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - 17:59

@Kikimonster: What exactly do you think they're going to teach that shouldn't be blatantly obvious to anyone that opens their eyes and pays attention to the world around them? That drinking and driving is bad? That drinking lots of alcohol can be harmful? People don't still smoke because they don't know that cigarettes are bad for them. College kids are going to still keep partying the same regardless of what you tell them.posted @ Friday, May 23, 2014 - 10:04

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.

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
