I pray the heavy conscience of some other relative will weigh enough to allow some more names to be named, which has happened recently unbeknownst to me until a radio broadcast this morning.

@nowheregirl: that's great, and I applaud your relative, but what is the difference between celebrating your relative's accomplishment(Drunk and finding the names of the people who perpetrated this heinous crime?

Folks, it's still an unsolved crime. I maintain that most of those of you who insist on burying this part of our recent past might just have a few relatives responsible for the last mass lynching in the United States.

Michelle Nunn makes campaign stop in Athens

@scarborj: so using all capital letters and overuse of exclamation points does not hide the fact that you seem very xenophobic to me

Michelle Nunn makes campaign stop in Athens

Additionally I did not hear any words of blame from this future Senator from the State of Georgia who will be a strong leader just like her father is

@snarkydude: please do not presume to speak for all Georgians. I would suggest you paint far too broad a brushstroke in most of your worn out and hackneyed generalizations. Why don't you give her a chance and make up your mind yourself instead of repeating tired old talking points and cliches designed to keep two Georgias in this state, instead of coming together as one?

Jody Hice, Mike Collins to debate today in Watkinsville

Among the other revelations one should know before entering this Pit from Hell, no questions from the audience and you must be receive pre-clearance from the GOP Collective before you are allowed to record any part, and you have to record the whole "debate" once you have been deemed worthy.

10th District candidates Jody Hice and Mike Collins to debate in Oconee County

I think the opening sentence should be reconstructed a bit to encompass the Republican nominee status of the winner of the runoff

Oconee commission incumbent faces challenge by former commissioner

@Used2baFreeCountry: hate to burst your bubble, but you voted exactly the same as this liberal former three time chair of the Democratic party in Oconee County. I think the only other race you get to decide is the Buck-Woods choice in the Ga. School superintendent and US Senate race. I would suggest researching the facts and making up your own mind on both those races.

    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
