1. A year of McDonald's hamburgers is a punishment, not a reward.
2. This is hardly news. Several franchises there have already given him burgers for life.
I went into an A&F store once, because the outside looked fanceh'. That's all it took. I remember thinking, "this is a store for tools." I honestly feel a little bit sorry for their customers. Not a lot, but a little.posted @ Friday, May 24, 2013 - 15:26
@Long Sufferer: Ha ha...it clearly wasn't a glass bong. I would have guessed she'd have a $200-300 model, not a $30 plastic one.
Then again, imagine if someone was walking down the street, and happened to catch a falling glass bong, then took off running.
Who's to say.posted @ Friday, May 24, 2013 - 15:22
I wouldn't see any of these artists, except maybe McCartney and Dylan, and to be honest, his voice is different now.
I saw Dylan years ago (great), and got dragged to a Kid Rock concert with some of my redneck friends in a stretch limo (not a fan of his music, but you can't argue with his talent on stage). I would actually pay to not have to go to any of the others listed.
When the Fire tour again or OMAM have tix available, I'll perk up. In the meantime, give me some Mumford, Keys, or even Daft Punk (yes..."threw up on Mexican monkey").posted @ Friday, May 24, 2013 - 15:19

I get the whole double-standard thing, and I'll admit it sometimes exists, but she rolled a doob and broke a perfectly good bong, two things purchased with money she earned.
That's a little different than robbery, theft, physical assault, etc., all while getting paid to do nothing with our tax dollars. White, black, purple, whatever - that's a thug.posted @ Friday, May 24, 2013 - 14:28

"Freeman... showed up at her home earlier this day asking for a place to stay because the power was turned off at his home."
Power getting shut off, having to beg people to let you say with them, taking the rap for other losers...the idea of joining a gang sounds ggggggreat!

There are several things wrong here:
What kind of school trip places two students in a single bed? I think that's asking for trouble.
This happened in November. It's May.
If I was told to share a bed with a dude, I'd probably respectfully opt for the floor unless I was drunk (it's happened), and if I did decide to sleep in the bed, I wouldn't stick around and try to fall asleep after thinking my bedmate already tried to touch me once!

I would define success as being happy in life and content with the person one has become, not how much money or "power" is obtained.
I used to live in a dumpy duplex on O'Farrell Street near the baseball field in college. I had no money, no cable (I got one or two channels with an antenna connected to a very small tv), a crappy car, a ton of debt, and a Labrador puppy who's now ten. That was one of the most "successful" years of my life.
I don't think money and power should even be compared to happiness when it comes to importance.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 12:07

"...altogether valued at $1,56 "

I'm torn on this one.
On one hand, he robbed a store, and got no jail time. That's f'd up, but then again, this is Athens.
On the other hand, Athens uses its resources to bust him with a little pot, and he gets arrested.
Are our priorities in line here? Methinks not.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 08:47

Or in this case, too dumb to run in a direction that doesn't lead to a dead end.

I heard several UGA students also discuss pedestrian safety. Yes, they sounded like they were auditioning for dumb and dumber goes surfing with the bachelor on Jersey Shore. "Yes, like, absolutely, I was walking with my 7 best friends and like we were texting our make believe friends and suddenly, like, we were in the middle of the road and a rude driver honked his horn at us, like we could have been absolutely killed or worse, so we looked up and like it was traffic everywhere."

I thought this was going to be about keeping thugs (black, white, whatever) off the street after 11pm.
Instead, it's a gigantic waste of time and resources intended to keep people from protesting peacefully for something they want, or don't want (Wal-mart).
Excellent.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 08:27

@TeeWee: Fair enough. I could probably manage to deliver all of the goods you mention except the piano, assuming of course that by "office equipment," you mean "a mouse and keyboard." Sacks of onions: no problem; do it all the time.
Just don't put me on Youtube if you catch me doing 18 (a pretty decent average speed for a bike, actually) in a 45 mph zone. I'll move over for you to pass.

Want your business here? Contact Leslie Turner for more information.
Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
