You're not implying that we're "one in a million", you're saying that we're just "one, in a million".
In my travels to places throughout the southeast, and parts beyond, there are things I like about cities and towns similar in size to Athens, a few being cleaner streets and sidewalks, free parking downtown, a seemingly lack of street beggars, about 30,000 less drunk college kids, and others that'll come to my mind after the third cup of joe.posted @ Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 09:04

And while they're at it, maybe inquire as to why it took nearly two months to inform customers. I can see a few weeks to confirm the breach, and to stop the hole, but they should have told folks earlier.
Thankfully I haven't eaten there in a long time. And also, I generally use cash for lunches. Not always, but most of the time at fast-ish places.posted @ Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - 17:10

Not to excuse the behavior of "the suspect, 19-year-old UGA student Ariel Omar Arias."
"[We], however, are [now living] under a different set of circumstances."
We jump up and down and talk about freedom, but that's now only a dream.
Think about it.
With freedoms come two very important things that today's society often forgets or ignores: Responsibility and Consequences.
The responsibility to use your freedoms, and to accept the consequences of using your freedoms if things go south.

Isn't that right there where the other day, those "non-gang" members had a little game of tussle with their fellow "non-gang" members? About 60 "non-gang" youth in all. All in all, there are just certain neighborhoods - emphasis on hoods - that are so dangerous, it's prohibitive to name them in the news story about the youthful fracas.posted @ Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 17:10
So the punishment is to not go to ACC? That's cool. Except that the residents of other counties might not like that. Besides, if ACC sent all their crooks, thugs, criminals, drug dealers and users, pimps, hos, burglars, robbers, car jackers, and those dastardly under age drinkers to other counties, who'd be left in ACC?posted @ Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 15:10

People arrested at protests, from $15 an hour wages, to global climate change, to whatever is worth protesting today, have a record that haunts them.
Your decision, however childish it is, should follow you around. This guy shouldn't get a lesser punishment than someone who sat in the road in protest.

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.
