As a season ticket holder, it pains me to listen to the cheese and wine crowd. Quit crying. Get on your feet and make some noise. This was long overdue. Great move Mr. McGarity and SEC ADs.posted @ Monday, February 24, 2014 - 22:41
The solution is simple. Don't kick it to them. Angle punts out of bounds and make kickoffs high and short to the up men. DO NOT kick it to Davis!posted @ Friday, November 15, 2013 - 11:41
"The people who founded this nation — and who therefore might have known a little something about what they were thinking — were God-fearing men who unreservedly invoked divine Providence in their words and in their writings. Including in our founding documents."
Most of the people who founded this nation were deists, not Christians. This is an important distinction and their writings should be interpreted as such.posted @ Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 10:26
Fourth article this morning that has mentioned Swann’s missed tackle but has failed to mention that Connor Norman bit on the play fake and was totally out of position. Two touchdowns were on Norman and a big gainer. Would have been another one in the 4th if Clemson receiver had not dropped the ball. Experience and smarts do not help if you can not turn and run. Have been dreading his start for almost 2 months. What is even more amazing is that he saw nearly every defensive snap. I know we are banged up in the secondary but c’mon man, none of the freshman or jc kid were ready to go?

@GroversMill: I was simply pointing out Mr. Brown's flawed logic. To your second point...hard working people go hungry everyday. Not everyone is a leech. As for your Bible verse: Proverbs 28:27 Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse. Luke 3:11 And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.” However, this one will probably suit you more...Romans 12:20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”posted @ Tuesday, April 16, 2013 - 14:13
"Claiming that half of the world’s food is being wasted implies that we are now producing almost twice as much food as we need."
No it does not. It means we are wasting too much food. Mr. Brown's pantry may be full, but I can assure you that millions of people in this country and around the world are not as lucky.posted @ Tuesday, April 16, 2013 - 13:11

[quote][b]friendlyfire[/b] - Well, maybe you will get your chance to vote. If you are Democrat, feel free to vote twice.[/quote]
I am a registered independent who will vote twice. Once, in the Republican primary for anybody but Mr. Broun and again in the general election for the best candidate.posted @ Monday, February 11, 2013 - 19:30
Yeah, who are the Dems going to pin to the board so the mud can be slung?
Mud Slinging: an attempt to discredit one's competitor, opponent, etc., by malicious or scandalous attacks.
Malicious and scandalous, neither of which are necessary to discredit Mr. Broun. I prefer any candidate, Republican or Democrat, to Mr. Broun.posted @ Monday, February 11, 2013 - 16:20

"I do , however, take serious issue with any person, politician or not, who seeks to impose his religiously based morality upon me or my family. That they have NO RIGHT to do." @ppensyl: My point exactly. Mr. Broun considers me an enemy and immoral. Either may be true but I am protected in both cases by the same constitution that Mr. Broun is constantly trying to rewrite.posted @ Monday, November 12, 2012 - 14:17

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.

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
