Police seek duo who stole elderly Athens woman's credit cards, charged $10k

My credit card got flagged and denied when I attempted to purchase $300 worth of stuff at Best Buy, because it was significantly different than my usual spending habits. Although it was an annoying inconvenience, I appreciated the security measure. Wonder why this granny's cards were allowed to be abused unchecked?

    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.
