CNN Report - Plant Vogtle

This is worth watching.

Hi nowheregirl and theold33 and grove600 and jtsim. Thank y'all for posting.

I'm sorry. I've been talking with a nuclear physicist about Plant Vogtle and lots of neat stuff, at where of all places? ADD Drug! I love ADD Drug! There is so much to learn every day.

And then I ran outside in my underwear to see the aircraft flying over Athens.

I have to view Athens Talks in author mode in my Opera viewer and it's a bit hard to read, so what's this about a pole dance?

[quote][b]grove600[/b] - But hurt someone's feelings and they'll care enough to send the very best ban hammer. Apparently you can't embarrass the ABH into doing their job. [/quote]

Makes me mad. It's a simple 300 word story that I've given the Athens Banner. All they have to do is just a little bit of work. Simple enough.

I always appreciate your words, Grove600. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

I don't live over there. Doesn't anyone live over there and care? What about a potential civil lawsuit? What if a jury finds the bank manager 5 percent at fault? Negligence suit? It could happen. What about it?

What if Principal Lumpkin-Barnett is 10% at fault if there is a civil suit from a potential injury or death?

Mr. Morrissey, what if a civil jury finds the Athens Banner partially at fault for doing nothing in this matter and then someone is injured or killed?

Principal Lumpkin-Barnett, what do you say?

"A damaged utility pole on South Park Street, seemingly supported by a jury-rigged contraption of ropes and rods, has some in south-end Halifax worried about safety."--CBC News

"It looks like what a six-year-old would do to try to fix things, a bit of string," said Suzanne Sauve. "It's kind of interesting."--CBC News

I went today and took photos. What if your child is injured or killed walking from school?

There now; that's not dangerous is it?

Athens Banner editors or reporters? Any thoughts? I just walked by there again yesterday and it looks even worse. Seems like an accident waiting to happen. Does anyone care?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
