Fantasy World is gone

@theold33: Thanks but I gave it up a few years ago. Back when I did a six pack was just enough to get in the mood to drink. I'll eat the chips while yall arm rassle.

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

I apologize to all those I have offended and to those I will continue to offend in the future. That will have to do cause that's as good as it's going to get.

I am even more worried about the world we live in after reading this.

Retaliation threats against police made after undercover agent shoots and kills man in east Athens

If you don't want to talk to the police don't waste their time calling 911.

@CharlesB: I don't know how to use it either and I can't even post a picture here. That may not be a bad thing cause if I could my happy azz would have been banned long ago.

Madison County school considers options for Bible verse monument

@Duke Briscoe: Well there was that rock fight between the little kid and that big giant guy. I think the kid won that one.

I don't think they will cover this either. If you had said that the UGA had bought the property and were going to use it as a school for strippers it would have made the front page.

Athens boy, 13, shoots 4 with BB gun

When I was a kid if I shot one of my buddies with my BB gun they would shoot back. We were all well armed with the new Crossman 760 but we had the three pump rule. And even then it stung.

A big dog through a window would have been faster. And a lot more fun to watch.

Parents complain about swearing at Oconee youth soccer games

Obama calls for dismantling IS 'network of death'

The only way there will be peace in the middle east is for all the militant groups to be destroyed. Air strikes alone won't do the job and there is not easy answer as to how to do this without sending in more Americans to die.

If it comes down to this we need to let the three or four allies that we have left know that we are rolling in with all the firepower we have and we will level everything and anyone we see as a threat. And don't tell them about it ahead of time so the terrorist can go into hiding.

Athens home broken into, watermelon smashed

Tony Stewart will not face charges in deadly crash

From what I have read it seems that Ward's judgment was impaired. Pot and race cars don't mix very well.

UPDATE: Body found partially submerged in North Oconee River at Athens-Clarke County's Ben Burton Park

This is the place that used to be known as Bend Over Park. I don't think the gangs hang out there.

Kimbrell: Help is available for victims of domestic abuse

Sound advice except for the last part. Our legal system doesn't work and cannot protect a woman from future abuse. The men that abuse women know this and sadly so do the women that are victims.

The Editor's Desk: Digital realm is unforgiving to young people

The one thing that I have noticed about most forms of social media is that it will bring out the stupid in a person faster than anything else. We have gone from the days of "I wouldn't have told that" to "I can't wait to post this so people will see that I am even dumber than they think I am".

Sad to think that this is the future of our world.

Man sought for indecent exposure

Maybe the reason they are calling it indecent exposure is because he didn't have anything decent to expose.

On one side Georgia voter registration probe a big deal, on the other not so much

@dahreese: From some of your comments it seems that being "educated" is over rated. Or is it you're? Those have always confused me.

And I don't give out minuses.

    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
