Restaurants hold the #1 start-up business industry in America. It also holds the #1 spot on the list of businesses that fail each year. It's a tough business to be in.
I never bothered to eat there. See comments above on pricing, parking, so-so food, and add snotty attitude to the mix.posted @ Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 08:32

I don't get that either. Seems like bad website management to me. No one in charge kind of thing. Makes you wonder if they put the story in the print edition 2 and 3 times on various - or heck the same - pages. You think they'd go broke doing that.

The last time O "focused" on anything, it raised the premiums of nearly every insured American in the country and jacked the taxes of working Americans.

Leaders never run for office. Pop stars do.

Budget cuts to the medical/scientific agencies didn't cause Ebola to come to America. Some Liberian LIED on his Visa application. He knew, or should have known or suspected, that he came into contact with an Ebola patient/victim. He alone brought Ebola into the US. Not a budget cut.
Neither political party is to blame for someone who lied about his own health.
If our front line of defense is the honesty of the next disease carrier - we're doomed.
We don't stop terrorists by asking them if they are a suicide bomber. Why then pretend to stop a carrier of a fatal disease by a checkbox on an application to enter our country.posted @ Friday, October 17, 2014 - 08:24

No one knows how things would have turned out if we asked Mary Lou to the dance. Likewise, we don't know how things would have turned out if we asked McCain, Palin or Romney (or someone else) to be our President.
What we're lacking at 1600, is a leader. O has never led anything more than a pep rally, and at that, the cheers were scripted.
And frankly, we need someone who cares about the American public and their needs. Yet we have someone who makes grand edicts about what's best for us, then fails to deliver on even that.
No, we don't know how much better one of the other candidates would have done in the job. But we know for a fact this one is a dud.posted @ Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - 07:46
"Protocol works!!" "The healthcare worker didn't follow protocol we had established." "So we're changing the protocol so the protocol will work"
Yeah, they know how to stop this as well as I know how.
And yes, they need to shut the borders of every country for 30 -60 days. It's a tough choice, but better than the alternative.posted @ Monday, October 13, 2014 - 14:03

I see you fell for the bait. "Outsourcing" does not mean jobs go overseas like they insist in the ad. Outsourcing means that small businesses get business, which hire people to do that work. All of my business clients "outsource" the work I do for them. As well, I outsource a lot of work to local small businesses that I'm sure appreciate my check. I know I'm not overseas in China or India, and I'm pretty sure the businesses I outsource to are all local.
But it's not a shocker that you fall for the bait tossed out by the Dems. It was intended to be misleading, and it is, and it worked. People who don't understand terminology only bought the message as it was delivered.posted @ Saturday, October 11, 2014 - 11:51

How about voting for one? Over and over again?

No political ads on my screen, this time. And yes, how dare Jim tell us how the political season might be extended and "ruin" our holidays while gleefully opening up the coffers for more ad revenues.
I guess it's one of those "It's going to hurt you more than it's going to hurt me" moments.posted @ Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 10:06
I've come to the conclusion that being an internationally renowned scientist and a barfly down at Trapeze are identical. Both can pontificate on any given topic at the drop of a hat, and vividly defend their position with lofty sounding arguments. And you can't change their opinion no matter how late it gets.posted @ Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 09:59
You meant to say Goobernatorial, as we're in Georgia.
I think there should be compulsory voting, and when you vote they give you a coupon worth "$100 off" and you attach it to your tax return. Everyone votes for the money. And why vote twice when you only get $100 back no matter how often you vote.posted @ Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 09:00
And "breaking news"? At best it's an op-ed piece, maybe something for the Sunday travel section (does anyone still do that?), but Breaking News should be, you know, something of importance, as well as something relevant to the readers.posted @ Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 08:51
That College Street is so far from the One Press Place building that houses the hallowed halls of the ABH in luxury, so enshrined the workers are that they rarely bother to step outside and walk the TWO WHOLE BLOCKS and take note that it's College Avenue (at the corner with East Washington Street).
And they want 99 cents to put up with this.posted @ Wednesday, October 8, 2014 - 17:44

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.

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
