The Editor's Desk: Who needs logic? It's an election year

O.C.G.A. 40-6-40 covers every issue mentioned above including the proposed legislation. Enforcement is what we need. Traffic rules are in place to protect everyone. Driver's Education classes should be mandatory. Learn to drive and get out of my way. Angry

McGarity hopes SEC rule change will pump up atmosphere at UGA football games

[quote][b]Athens Trojan[/b] - I pay to go to a football game not to be entertained by the scoreboard.[/quote]

Perhaps the ballet would be more your speed.

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.

UGA's punt, kickoff coverage teams taking special notice of Auburn's speedy returners

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!

What Others Say: Prayer prohibition 'poppycock' (The Augusta Chronicle)

"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.

Oh-no and 1: Bulldogs fall short in season-opening road loss

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?

Keep your heads up Dawgs and fans alike and GATA!

Brown: Food security isn't pressing issue

@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.”

Brown: Food security isn't pressing issue

"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.

[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.

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.

Broun addresses veterans at Morgan County church

"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.

    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
