[quote][b]TeeWee[/b] - The people must retake control of government.
Who exactly is the "government" in this case? According to the story, one of the key plaintiffs in the suit is the former Deputy Manager. Wasn't he a part of the changes back in 2002 and 2012 when he was an employee? If this was such a breach of contract why did he wait 12 years to bring the suit? There has to be more to this story.posted @ Monday, August 18, 2014 - 08:37

@WestsideAthens: Agreed. I have flown into Charlotte, Atlanta, and Nashville with the various airlines that have come and gone. Seaport has been the most reliable and consistent of all of them. But $1.6 million a year (or $4383 a day) is a waste of tax dollars.posted @ Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - 11:06

@Kwijibo Junior: That is only half correct. Half of the spaces would be tied up with UGA students and the other half will be tied up with employees.posted @ Thursday, July 3, 2014 - 19:22
Actually, the judge did not deny bond. Anyone charged with murder is not allowed to be bonded out.

Another fine example of the "privileged" country club class. The Royal Lakes membership must be soooooo proud.

Irrespective of whether or not he was guilty, I can't believe the number of stupidly rich multi-millionaire friends he had who honestly thought getting 60% returns was part of any legit investment portfolio.

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.
