Why any mother would bring an ex-con home to live with her child is beyond me. There are worse things than being single, you know.posted @ Friday, March 7, 2014 - 17:31
Sigh...how many times have we heard this story before, people?
Well, at least she (apparently) locked the car. Most times, people don't even bother to do that!posted @ Friday, March 7, 2014 - 16:44
I loved the staff who took care of me and my daughter when I gave birth at St. Mary's in 2012! I was most particularly impressed with the NICU nurses.posted @ Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 17:33
You might recheck your math. He should have stayed in prison until 2021. But he very likely will demonstrate this same loathsome behavior the next time he's released, too.posted @ Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 17:25
We can only hope! The right vs. left scream-fests on TV are so maddening as to make cable news channels unwatchable anymore. You get more actual news in 30 minutes of the networks' evening broadcasts than you do in an entire day of CNN. Web news is the only way to go.posted @ Friday, February 28, 2014 - 00:31

I have never had a job that tested me for drugs, ever. I've worked for state of Georgia for the past 9 years and, at least for my position, it does not have a drug-testing policy in place as a condition of employment.
I don't suppose any of these Tea Party types want to also test recipients for alcohol, do they? Because I'd bet that very legal drug is the one most likely to show up in people's systems, state representatives included.posted @ Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 12:17
Once again, women are treated as nothing more than incubators for the precious fetus! It would be nice if these ridiculous right-wingers gave damn about the baby once it was born, but as we see all too often, their only response to unwanted pregnancies is "too bad, lady, you should've kept it in your pants."
They are scum, the entire lot of them.posted @ Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 10:40
So banning neonicotinoids in the US is just out of the question, then? Even though their widespread use has been declared the primary cause of colony collapse disorder? And even though they have already been banned in Europe for this very reason? It's not a mystery why this is happening, you know. Once upon a time, widespread unintended decimation of important animal populations warranted a change in laws, and the banning of particular pesticides. Doesn't anyone remember the DDT fiasco?posted @ Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 09:26
I hope the raw milk comes with BIG WARNING LABELS about all the contaminants that it could contain: e.coli, listeria, and salmonella, just to name a few! And also an explanation for the reasons it should not be given to pregnant women, infants and children.posted @ Monday, February 24, 2014 - 17:12

I'm glad this kid wised up, fessed up, and took responsibility for his actions. This case is so disturbing to me. That poor man and his family should never have had to suffer like this. It seems to happen to too many good people.posted @ Thursday, February 20, 2014 - 23:35
Staff raises can't come soon enough. UGA staff has brought home a smaller and smaller paycheck every year for the past five -- not four -- years.posted @ Monday, February 17, 2014 - 23:38

This is actually the third student found dead this academic year. Rebecca Greene, who was found in a creek in November, and then David Braun found in his dorm just last month. This has not been a good year in this sense.
I hope that this student's family finds peace, as well as the families of the others who died too soon.posted @ Friday, February 7, 2014 - 10:01

Also, on a side note, didn't the ABH used to have a policy about not allowing comments on rape stories?posted @ Thursday, February 6, 2014 - 14:58
Q: Do you know what they call the wealthiest citizens in the US, after they pay 39.6% in income tax?
A: The wealthiest citizens in the US.
You people are crazy if you think that this will somehow leave these people--who make over $400K a year--in crippling poverty or something. Talk to the folks who are working 30 hrs a week (because their employer "can't afford" to give them a full-time position), and still only bring home $20K/yr, and find out what a crippling salary looks like.posted @ Thursday, January 23, 2014 - 17:32
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.

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
