Reagan: Sharpton eulogy addressed tough subject

This is the message that Sharpton and all leaders in the black community should be preaching.

Comer woman arrested after passing school bus

Good Job. Things like this need to happen more often to people that think they are too important to have to go by the same rules the rest of us do.

Man returns to Athens complex 10 minutes after banning

This is a man that knows how the game is played. And he's good at it.

Is Global Warming Over?

@theold33: Ya gotta admit that back in the day we did have fun. I think if my mother was in jail and my brother was in CO I would try to get my brother out first.

The Editor's Desk: Maybe we need some different friends

@Jerry NeSmith: For too many people social media has become a way to get the attention that they don't get in the real world. I will be content to live on the "shabby outskirts". When I feel the need for attention I have a dog that takes care of that just fine.

Is Global Warming Over?

I saw one of your old buddies over at the Madison County Journal. She's still promising to move to CO. What's it been, four years now she's been moving? Maybe they have her on the state ignore list.

Athens man punches cop

I think if someone is drunk enough and stupid enough to punch a cop then the cop should beat their sorry azz until it won't hold shucks and call it even.

And I don't care what color either one of them are.

Shabby outskirts? I am insulted and I think you should ban yourself.

Hood claims he heard dead brother's voice before shooting Athens police officers

Maybe he will hear voices before he's executed. Welcome to hell.

Study: Social media users shy away from opinions

One of the things I miss the most about so many of our regular posters jumping ship was the different opinions that we had on some juicy topics. I think you can tell a little bit about a person by their comments.

It's not hard to tell the liberals from the conservatives or the dingbats from the rest of us. Or at least from me.

Sometimes I try to put some thought into my comments to keep someone from taking my comment the wrong way and other times I just say to hell with it and write what's on my mind and could care less what someone else thinks.

This is one of those times. Smile

Rosin, Asch, Merchant: Why the 'ice bucket challenge' is social media success story

I'm glad money is being raised for ALS but I can't help but wonder if this is just another way some people have of getting their 15 seconds of facebook fame.

Yarbrough: Texting while driving is 'idiotic obsession'

Sad but some people will not part with their phones for an instant. The cell phone makes you the center of the universe and if you don't sent at least one text a minute the world will come to an end. If by some chance you don't have any text messages to sent or read you can always watch something of vast importance on facebook or youtube.

I have no problem with stupid people hurting themselves. Just don't hurt me in the process.

Man takes friend’s steaks after beating him in store

@nowheregirl: If he could afford to buy five steaks at the Stop and Shop I would be willing to bet he was paying for them with our money.

Man takes friend’s steaks after beating him in store

I would like to go on the record as posting the first "grab your meat and beat it" comment. The problem is that the guy grabbed someone else's meat.

What Others Say: Religious discussion should be encouraged (The Times, Gainesville)

@cyou299: I don't think his response meant that Christians were any better than anyone else. That's more of a liberal point of view.

Pretty soon drones will be like "smart phones". Everybody will have one. I'll wait till the price comes down.

Yarbrough: Kept out of the liberal club

I would love to join. I would want to join the LOL for the same reason I would want to join a country club. To see how long it would take before I get kicked 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
