Kight: Being emotionally connected doesn't make you financially compatible

That little brain gets us into so much trouble. Someone needs to invent a pill to put it to sleep and to wake it up whenever we want.

Man tries to rob one Athens convenience store, robs another minutes later

Not the brightest chap. I guess when he was robbing before his first stint, they hadn't invented video cameras.

Athens cab driver possibly facing kidnapping charges

Just get paid before you drive and there will be no problem.

Jurors: Zimmerman not guilty of 2nd-degree murder

Zimmerman may not be as guilty as the lawmakers who were responsible for Florida's stand your ground law. Had this moron neighborhood watchman not had this ridiculous law at his back, he would have kept his gun on his hip.

Store burglar snatches 30 cartons of cigarettes

[quote][b]The Oracle of the Athens Banner Herald[/b] - How many of them were Newports?

I'm pretty sure that we've had our fair share of non black store burglars in Athens recently. Don't be an idiot.

Store burglar snatches 30 cartons of cigarettes

Smart burglar. At 40-60 dollars a carton, a burglar comes out a whole lot better just stuffing a trash bag full of cigarette cartons than he does going for cash. He'll sell them for half that on the street and still make a killing.

Georgia officials consider potential impact of court ruling on voting rights

Redneck GA politicians are about to kick their efforts to keep blacks and hispanics away from the polls into high gear now. They just got their green light. Sad day.

Paula Deen's 'Today' appearance ends in tears

The best thing that I can say about her is that she's not alone. Millions more just like her in this region of the country. She's just the one who's been outed.

States promise quick action after court ruling

And now come the inevitable laws in redneck states like ours that will be designed to keep minorities away from the ballot. Politics stinks.

Man claims it a 'tradition' to do drugs at Athens location

Institutionalized. At least in jail no one can look down on him and he gets three squares and a bed. I dig it. Good job buddy.

Officials don't expect any foul play in Oconee Street United Methodist Church fire

Very sad. Many people count on that church for daily meals. Not to be cynical, but this incident really coincides with neighborhood upgrades that are taking place in that neighborhood. Getting rid of that soup kitchen would also get rid of the homeless people who hang out on that street while waiting for a meal. Can't be good for property values. Also makes it more difficult to attract tenants for the newly built high end condos that are about to open right across the street. Fishy indeed.

Food workers fired as Mass. students denied lunch

Sounds like the workers were just doing their jobs. Was it the policy of the company to give out free food?

S&P 500 closes at a record high, beating '07 mark

[quote][b]fixit[/b] - Stocks are back to their George Bush level. Too bad gasoline's twice what it was then.

I hope you're talking about Bush Sr.. Junior inherited a robust economy and turned it to feces. Obama is fixing Junior's mess.

Athens man strikes it rich with $2.5 million in Georgia Lottery scratch-off

That 1.25 will put him just about even with all of the lotto money that he's lost over his lifetime probably.

Caldwell-Pope named AP's SEC Player of Year

He needs to go and get paid before he blows out his knee or something. I love Georgia, but I hate seeing these kids miss out on opportunities due to some misplaced since of loyalty even more.

8-year-old boy mauled, critically injured by dog at an Athens home

Study: welfare programs discourage work, marriage

There will always be an element of society that tries to get over. Just as members of the rich hire lawyers and accountants to circumvent the tax and legal system, members of the poor also figure out ways to take advantage of holes in these welfare programs. Human nature. Just don't target the poor only though. Target rich cheaters as well.

Man charged in Athens hit-and-run that placed pedestrian in coma

Not sure what he'll do with himself for the rest of his life, but to this point, his experiences have turned him into a complete and total scumbag loser. Anyone who would do something like that is among the lowest of the low.

That's complex is out of a lot of cash. Should have a no cash policy. Common sense really.

Oconee St. park and ride opens to the public

That lot needs a deck with at least 4 levels. That would make more sense. Seems like a tremendous waste.

Local delagtes want specifics on pitched assault weapon ban

[quote][b]Realist[/b] - Evil can't be banned.

No, but we can make it more difficult for evil to do it's business. I can't help but think that these mass murders would have less mass in them if the killers didn't have access to military grade semi-automatic assault weapons. Many of them would probably just stay home if they didn't have these type weapons in their possessions. The only purpose that these type weapons have in life is in the rare occasion of an alien invasion or the zombie apocalypse.

    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
