Grimes: Georgia was built with federal investment

Reality? We don't need no stinkin' reality! They can't see reality through the rose colored glasses they don every day. Some of them actually believe that "federal money" wasn't our money at one time or another. And so they act like it's "free" and never has to be paid for through taxes on wages (primarily) and earnings from business and investments.

Clarke Central student arrested for assaulting teacher, classmate

I think they should outlaw four hole paper punchers from schools. If there were only three hole paper punchers, well, maybe the injuries would have been 25% less damaging.

I'm forming PAFHPP = Parents Against Four Hole Paper Punchers. The annual membership fee is only $30 per individual or $70 per family. Cash only till I get my bank account set up. Who's going to join? It's "for the kids". Think of the kids lives that your generous membership fee with help save from being attacked by Four Hole Paper Punchers.

Georgia ranked in Top 5 for charitable giving

Tax cheats are found far and wide. Liberals, conservatives, Reps, Dems, libertarians, Christians and non, college grads and high school dropouts. They all have cheats among their ranks.

Just remember that it all comes from taxpayers, and there are less and less of them every day.

UGA to host Study Abroad Fair this week

I went to college just so I could study a broad. Never knew there were overseas classes too.

$6? Really? Not much that'll get you in any town.

@Barry: No one goes to church these days. Sundays are for sleeping in late and heading to the liquor store before the Baptists get there after their religious rah-rah event. It's shameful to run into a deacon or elder in the Bourbon aisle and have to explain why you weren't in Sunday school.

Today's editorial cartoon

The weather changes, yes it does. And man has negatively impacted our land, air and water. Are we humans, and Americans specifically, the sole cause of weather changes, be they hot, cold, wet, dry, still, shaky, calm, blowing? No. Will taxes resolve or remediate the negative impact of man? Fat chance.

But, it's something that politician chirp about to appease that voter base. No one has any intent to actually change anything for the "better".

Jewish UGA students are upset

Rum Raisin is my favorite. Leave out the raisins and the ice cream and just pour me some rum. I'm good.

Anyone know where everyone else went? Seems the new Grand Pooh-Bah has her work cut out for her. I mean, how do you attract people to a place they throw you out of.

The Fab Five now seem to be the Three Thieves. No telling what we're actually called in the monolithic building downtown, or the mahogany paneled walls of the executive bathroom at the Morris Group's world wide headquarters in Disgusta.

Keep it real folks. I'll be back when there's something interesting happening.

Athens-Clarke County could be next to OK Sunday voting

Those two Sundays give voters a chance to vote for their favorite candidate, two more times.

I take it you found some ice cream? If so, what flavor? If not, what level did you get to?

The Editor's Desk: 'Non-apology' apologies are non-starters

Amen Bro. Makes you wonder if the loss in ad revenue (they get paid based on subscription #'s and page views) was offset by the additional (if any) subscriptions when they pushed the paywall on folks, to basically be able to post comments, which commenters drove up page views and therefore ad rates. It's a circular thing, and you have to wonder if the circle is going down.

Oh well, I doubt anyone in a position to know will tell the truth of the matter. Sorry if that offends someone or everyone.

Be safe this weekend my friend.

The Editor's Desk: 'Non-apology' apologies are non-starters

I apologize to you people, not that I'll change though. I'll offend you again, real soon I'm sure. I'm sure there are quite a few that took great exception to the things I've said and done over the years. Geeez. They should grow some thicker skin.

And maybe that's an editorial for another day. The whimping of America. Too many people get offended by immaterial things, minor issues, stupid stuff really. I bet if you write that editorial piece, it'll offend someone. Maybe even me!

Dunno if she did or not.

@jtsim: Save me some chips, I'm addicted to chips.

Let's see if the new lady of the house can redecorate this joint.

If she decides to bring in a better class of clientele, we may all be toast. Wink

It appears the fab five became the thankless three. I don't see anyone else here - in AT proper. It used to be thriving, but now it's a dust, mold and mite collector.

Well, maybe they can afford to do a meet -n greet now as it'll only cost them a 6-pack and a bag of chips.

ATF agent shot, suspect killed in drug investigation in east Athens

Saw the dead thugs dad (I think it was) on the ATL news demanding an investigation, as if the cops just executed his boy for no reason. I guess that'll be the new norm, to proclaim innocence and victimhood and hope that massive numbers of protestors come to the rescue and that the Justice Department opens an investigation. Probably they think there's money to be had?

Elderly Athens man carjacked in own driveway

It ain't safe out there people. The system that gives justice to the criminals, but not to the victims or the public at large, keeps the criminals out on the streets with the ability to create more victims. I doubt that a 25 year old "just up and decides" to carjack someone. So this criminal more than likely has a record, somewhere.

Police: 1 child hurt, school evacuated in Kentucky

So, no guns in KY, just a fear of guns and someone that saw something and said it looked like a gun. Probably a cellphone

Athens boy, 13, shoots 4 children with BB gun

My brother shot me with a BB gun once. I'm none the worse for wear. He shot me in the back of the head, otherwise it could have done some real damage. Shock

Sadly though, this sounds like a gang initiation. That is of course, if Athens had gangs. Thankfully the Chief said we didn't. So these are just misguided youth.

Olympian Michael Phelps arrested on DUI charge

People are stupid sometimes. Ok, more often we are stupid than not. But thankfully the rest of us A) don't get caught being dumb and B) when we do it's never breaking national (or world) news.

    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
