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?

"The identity of the person who financed the structure has never been revealed."

Is this the reason they're referred to as the "mysterious" Georgia Guidestones? Stare

    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.
