Idiots said banning smoking in bars would result in the bars closing / going out of business. Nope...bars got bigger, more of 'em, and more profitable.
Time to go ahead and ban the outdoor smoking, too. You want to smoke and stink up everything? Keep your sorry butts home and stink up your own house and yard.posted @ Friday, January 23, 2015 - 18:51

Let me get this straight. Some folks don't like cremation, so they file baseless complaints. Then those same people suddenly have a change of heart and don't like embalming, either. Hmmm. Well, the complainers just pointed out the whole advantage of cremation...no embalming is necessary. Hate to say it, but the complainers unwittingly contradicted themselves, sunk their own ship, and made the strongest case FOR a crematorium.posted @ Friday, November 28, 2014 - 14:44

Win or lose, this would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and court costs. That's hundreds of thousands of dollars that would have to be taken away from schools and children.
Is David Larkins volunteering to pay the hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees it will cost to defend this nonsense? If so, I say hand him the bill and he can go for it!

At least he gave all of Athens a heads up and told us what he really thinks trying to dis our awesome creative community. Let him know what we think of him putting down our Classic City: Vote with your dollars and Don't eat at Branded Butcher, y'all!

[quote][b]LaMareaRoja[/b] - Who actually BUYS anything at Best Buy?
To me, it only serves as a place to go check out products and try out their features. Then I order what I like online, at a much lower price with free shipping.
Uh...no. I guess you don't actually go to Best Buy or you would know that now they price match online retailers now. I find myself shopping on Amazon or a couple of other online retailers, doing my research on those sites, and then after deciding what to get, I check Best Buy to see if they have they have the item in store store. If they do, I just hop on over and show 'em the Amazon price and they match it. Same price and no shipping and no waiting!
The price match policy saved Best Buy.posted @ Saturday, July 12, 2014 - 12:16
Have to say, making an office out of the library is not a good sign. I urge everyone to call and email your commissioners. This is not a done deal. Yet.posted @ Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - 12:25

[quote][b]zallybonk[/b] - Motes said she dragged her daughter by the hair. For a law enforcement officer to admit to abuse and dragging a child by the hair is disturbing to say the least. The irony is, judging by her photo, her hair looks like someone dragged it. Is that a wig the perp is wearing in her mugshot? Or just 2 tone hair color? Maybe they have hair colorists in lady prison?
This just seems so t-r-a-s-h-y!
Pretty sure the inmates in female prisons do not have access to hair colorists. Not licensed ones anyway.posted @ Thursday, January 2, 2014 - 22:43
Two things I have zero tolerance for are men who abuse women and anyone who abuses children. Ms. Motes needs to spend some time in prison and think about her crimes. No telling how much worse this will get if she continues to get away with violence against children. Don't empower her. Nip it. Nip it in the bud.posted @ Wednesday, January 1, 2014 - 22:25
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.
