From house of ill repute to house of God

Maybe I'm old school, but there's just something about having a church in an old stripper club....

Can't get it out of my mind that altar call / praying might be where the stripper pole was......

I'm sure they got a good deal, but still.........

Could more have been done for Thomas Eric Duncan?

Maybe if the gov't had a 21-day quarantine for Ebola in place then Duncan might have survived !

Prep roundup: Athens Christian, Athens Academy, Commerce roll in shutout victories

@theold33: Dang it, beat me to it. Apparently Social Circle is the only team they can beat. Hell froze over, Oglethorpe wins. Was joking with my wife whether the game could end in a tie and neither win. How close that call was - they went into OT.

My tax $$$ is working after all.

In other H.S. football news :

Social Circle is 0-7, 0-3 in Region 8-AA; Oglethorpe County is 0-7, 0-4.

Someone is gonna be a WINNER ! Smile Party

But then again, is it possible to end a game in a 0-0 score ? Shock

Bishops scrap welcome to gays in sign of split

Question : Are there any non-changing religious rules / beliefs or not? Yes, no, maybe so, winds blowing one way then changes. What's next ? Ignore the 10 commandments so killers don't feel left out, etc., etc. Too many churches blowing with the wind instead of standing on the rock of foundation ! Beliefs that have stood strong for hundreds of years are gone, poof, within the last 10-20 years ! O M G & that's for what it should really mean !

Cruise ship with monitored health worker returns

@FanaticalModerate: The CDC said she could go, which in hindsight was NOT good judgement on their part, as so has been some of their other "blunders". Blame the CDC for allowing the other nurse to board an airplane with a low-grade fever, she called & it was OK'd.

The clinical worker and her husband probably had the cruise bought & payed long before Duncan came to the hospital.

Now we have an Ebola czar with No medical experience, but he's really good at political double-talk and BS'ing ( 2 thumbs up from POTUS ). Puzzled

    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
