What Others Say: Comeuppance of Atlanta archbishop not for him alone (Columbus Ledger Enquirer)

There is and always will be a huge profit in prophets selling fear, and you bought it estaben. You swallowed it hook, line and sinker and you paid for the bait.

Blackmon: State rep OK with sex offenders loitering at schools

It is a horrible idea and Sam Moore should hide his face in shame and resign for even suggesting it. It might be advisable for the authorities to investigate this fools background to seek any claims that this man or a friend or a member of his family have a history of molesting children. How do men like this get elected anywhere?

Ole Miss frat suspended, noose suspects kicked out

The flames of racial hatred have not been extinguished anywhere in the world and they aren't likely to ever be. When will we humans realize we are all humans and these kind of pranks ultimately lead to violence and war.

Griffith-Girtz: Your feedback is helping us make the Banner-Herald better

Andrea, certainly you do not really believe any of what you wrote here. The ABH needs an editor who wants to work for his pay instead of counting on interns to do his job for him.

Thomas: Free speech rights apply to conservatives, too

The ABH must go to the graveyard to dig up opinion writers like this senescent, senile, superannuated, old man with his feet firmly planted in the past. Lazy editorial work Jim.

Shooting reported at Purdue Univ., 1 in custody

"No revolver I have ever owned ejected shell casings either."
Where did you read, "Police told reporters they found one shell casing at the scene and believe the shooter used a revolver?" That sentence appears nowhere in this AP story, and there also is no mention of what type of weapon was used.

Thomas: Media going a political bridge too far

"Select the scandal(Drunk that affects the most people and has long-term implications for the country in a time of war, a country with a struggling economy that last month produced the weakest job growth in decades."
That's simple Mr. Thomas, the answer A, B, C and D.
Another loss is the time wasted that I'll never get back from reading your predictable opinions.
Two wrongs do not makes a right. In rhetoric and ethics, two wrongs make a right and two wrongs don't make a right are phrases that denote philosophical norms. "Two wrongs make a right" is a fallacy of relevance, in which an allegation of wrongdoing is countered with a similar allegation. Its antithesis, "two wrongs don't make a right", is a proverb used to rebuke or renounce wrongful conduct as a response to another's transgression.

Tant: Slowing madness of reefer prohibition

Colorado also passed a law that allows farmers to grow hemp and harvest it's many useful benefits. The United States imports over $450 million in hemp products a year, but has the potential to export a much larger amount. Georgia, well it's Georgia. If it plays football, all is well.

The Editor's Desk: The marketplace and online commenting

The Commenting Market is where mostly old retired and grumpy men and a few women go to shoot this breeze online. It's much safer than doing the same thing down at a local pub where the heat of the discussion and the alcohol reduced inhibitions can lead to bodily injuries and an ambulance ride to the emergency room, and possible visits before a judge and all that messiness.

The Editor's Desk: Pay attention to lawmakers; Influential columnists

I absolutely agree with these two paragraphs Jim:
"The plain truth is that when it comes to the state legislature, most people aren’t paying all that much attention. Often, that means laws get passed that maybe wouldn’t have if folks had taken time to read the always-extensive media coverage of the legislature and had then gotten in touch with their legislator and other influential members of the General Assembly.
With this year’s legislative session set to begin on Jan. 13, I’m taking a moment to suggest that paying attention to what will be going on in Atlanta might be just a bit more important than focusing on the next episode of “Duck Dynasty” or “Downtown Abbey.”
I would also add sports and Hollywood celebrity news to the list. Why is it so difficult for Americans to separate the trivial from the important? I think we make the mistake of focusing on what the media decides is important to us rather than making those decisions ourselves. The media has this habit of marching in lock step on too many trivial issues and ignoring to a great extent what really matters. I also agree with another comment that NeSmith and Yarbrough aren't as influential as they think they are. Overall, I think this is one of your better editorials and I thank you for it.

Riordan, Broad: It's no sin to be wealthy

Ah, more prosperity gospel, if you plant that seed to some TV evangelist you'll become super rich. Another Ponzi scheme,
a form of fraud in which belief in the success of a nonexistent enterprise is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors. A fool and their money are soon parted. How many millionaires are in this list of commenters? If you are one say so with a negative vote.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
