Georgia girl severely burned when gas ignites on slide

EJ..you don't have a clue what you're talking about. I lived across from a grammar school playground where the slides, etc. were made from other than metal or wood. The hair on these kids stood out due to static electricity. And they do get hot in the sunshine. I believe that friction burns would more than likely be the culprit causing burns.
However, you digress from the article in which it says that gasoline was the cause of the flame...which is wierd.
As I said, we don't know enough...
Please don't try to lecture any more...there are a few adults in the room!!

Georgia girl severely burned when gas ignites on slide

75 years on Planet Earth and never heard of a slide catching on fire. Is there more to this than we read? Many unanswered questions.

Downtown Athens step closer to getting grocery store

[quote][b]bobbidiboo[/b] - Bell's, Colonial, and A & P used to be downtown until they ran them out.
[/quote]
There was a Kroger store on West Broad St. just the other side of the bus station on the same side of the street in the 40's and 50's.
Where was the Colonial and A&P?
Who ran them out?

Mass. woman sues FedEx over marijuana delivery

FTA:PLYMOUTH, Mass. — A Massachusetts woman is suing FedEx, saying the company erroneously sent her a package containing seven pounds of marijuana, then gave her address to the intended recipients who later showed up at her door.

This doesn't make sense. She's saying that Fedex sent the package? Did Fedex deliver her the package addressed to her neighbor? If not addressed to her, then she bears some responsibility for opening it. Of course, we don't know all the details so we can just offer opinions.

Sometimes I get mail in my box for someone else and I just put it back in the mail box and flag up. And, yes, I know this is Fedex, not the post office.

Archibald Killian to be honored as Athens' first black surviving policeman

Regale me with a few of the many sins of Archibald Roosevelt Killian. Has the man been a rapist, murderer, thief, blasphemer........give me something that's so beyond the pale that I should cover my eyes when he passes.

You don't read and comprehend very well. If you will read what I replied to about drinking , smoking dope, Killian's name was not mentioned...

[quote][b]RightIswrong[/b] -
Right off of the top of your head; name a single African American man of the cloth that'd meet your lofty standards, better yet, name a person of color of any profession that you'd respect. Those my friend are the dirty little tenets of disdain that are only thinly veiled, and quite obvious to those that want to see them. A Herman Cain or an Allen West will look away and deny that the hatred and secrets exist, but they're there, lurking right beneath the surface.

Have you been drinking? Smoking dope? You can do better than this????

Apparently there must be someone, this stiff is downing Killian and Jackson as if there is some manual that outlines who should be considered a "Reverend" and who shouldn't. "Would any human meet lofty standards"......you've answered your own question.

Actions speak louder than words...Do you know or have you had any contact with Archibald R. Killian? I knew him long before he got his sainthood....
So, if you don't know this person, then you are whistling Dixie!!

Senator vows to delay Obama's nominees over Libya

A better title for this article "Obama Asleep At The Wheel"

FTA:
Graham would have none of it.

"In a constitutional democracy, we need to know what our commander in chief was doing at a time of great crisis, and this White House has been stonewalling the Congress, and I'm going to do everything I can to get to the bottom of this so we'll learn from our mistakes and hold this president accountable for what I think is tremendous disengagement at a time of national security crisis," he said.

At the Senate hearing, Panetta testified that he and Dempsey were meeting with Obama when they first learned of the Libya assault. He said the president told them to deploy forces as quickly as possible. Graham asked whether Panetta spoke again to Obama after that first meeting. Panetta said no, but that the White House was in touch with military officials and aware of what was happening. At one point, Graham asked Panetta if he knew what time Obama went to sleep that night. The Pentagon chief said he did not.

Broun says he wants automatic budget cuts to occur

@E.J.: Perhaps you failed to read and comprehend what I said what I thought would be necessary towards doing something useful to help this country, so here it is again copied an pasted:
However, we cannot continue to borrow and spend or tax and spend at the rate we're going and remain solvent as a nation.

From your post: There's something about our political system that attracts poor-quality candidates.
I agree more than 100 percent. Look at what occupies the white house.

[quote][b]Mahatna-Gahndi[/b] - Sure! That's correct, Broun! Tout your spending cuts. Make life miserable for millions of Georgians and Americans by making them poor, because after all, you won't feel any financial pain will you? You'll still be rich and have your mansions, servants and luxury cars, right? Nothing can touch you!!!!

Broun is just the messenger. It's known that some posters here do not want to decrease spending..and so be it. However, we cannot continue to borrow and spend or tax and spend at the rate we're going and remain solvent as a nation.

I never have heard any liberals verbalize what needs to be done....just arguments against Broun, Bush, GOP, Republicans, and so on. Please bring to the table something useful that will help this country....

Don't quite understand this post..What kids? You think whipping is gonna stop somebody from B&E or murder? Not likely. The prisons are full of miscreants that probably got BEAT every day of their lives.

@eastsider99: I'm glad my prents whooped me into shape cause there's no telling where I would be if they hadn't

So, you're saying that you enjoyed the pain from "whooping"? There's a name for that...masochist.

Don't feel like the Lone Ranger... I got belted just about every day of my life by my father and many times for no apparent reason up until maybe when I was 12 or so..However, I don't think it made me any better or worse for having been whipped.
Anyhow, you have you opinion as to what you think needs to be done and I have mine.

Do unto others..
Many posters here feel that's it's necessary to inflict pain on someone just to get an "attitude adjustment". I can see it now, a small defenseless child in the presence of an adult holding a belt, stick, switch or whatever.
How about it folks? You want to have your attitude adjusted by being caned, beaten, lashed, whipped or ???? you name it.
If some of you feel that way and you know who you are, why don't you call the president and tell him that it's OK to used enhanced methods of extracting information from people?
When my children were small I punished them corporally and one day realized that they were being hurt and how would I like it? My attitude changed right then and I feel the same about it today...and that was nearly 50 year ago..

    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
