Calm urged as Ferguson grand jury nears decision

We won't know anything until after the Thanksgiving shopping weekend. Nobody wants to shop a fire sale.

Athens man facing charges he put cat in dog's cage to watch it be killed is re-arrested

I won't write what I am thinking about this guy. I feel sure that everyone else that read this story is thinking the same thing.

Athenstalks and Thanksgiving

The problem is not that they don't have a clue the problem is that nobody gives a damn anymore.

I think that in the beginning the People that started this thought it would be a cool place for liberals, tree huggers and old hippies to have a place to talk with each other about how to save the planet from conservatives. But then one by one we started to come in. Before they knew it we were like fire ants and we had begun to take over. And like fire ants nothing could stop us.

Charging the people that made Athens Talks fun was the worse thing the ABH has done in a long time.

Suit: Black dispatchers told they speak 'ghetto'

I know that when I have to call someone I want to talk to a person that sounds like I do. I imagine there are more people that can speak ghetto than southern English.

I think this is a wonderful idea. Our world is going down the crapper anyway. Just don't forget to flush.

Stop calling these people as hunters and call them what they really are. Morons.

Authorities seek leads in shooting of horse on Athens-Clarke County farm

A hunter would never do something like this. An azzhole with a gun would and I hope they are paid back for this a million times.

Missouri governor activates National Guard

I am afraid that this officer is going to be hung out to dry just to keep the fine upstanding citizens from burning down to whole town.

Today's editorial cartoon

@Libralady: You need to loosen up a little bit. They are called cartoons for a reason and they don't have to show any respect for anyone or any issue.

I don't doubt that many of us know very much about the ACA except that a lot of people found out that like many other things it ain't free.

SOUP: Athens blog dedicated to getting readers off the Internet

A blog to get people off the internet? Ok. Now if the people that do go outside and enjoy nature can leave their phones at home that would be worth something.

Today's editorial cartoon

The sad thing about this is that those of us, myself included, that did not elect Obama either time are having to take it up the wazoo too.

Dummies. Everybody knows that a cardboard box stuffed with old magazines is the best thing to use for target practice in your basement.

Johnson: 'Dear White People' has important messages on race

I liked the part about the dorm. Let's face it folks, at the end of the day black people want to be around other black people and white people feel the same way.

AP sources: Millions to get deportation protection

Our immigration laws are a joke. We won't enforce them so just let anybody that wants to come live here come on. Take the money that is wasted on Homeland Security and use it to fund all the welfare programs for our new neighbors.

    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
