Walmart developer won't meet Occupy Athens' demands

I felt that I needed to point this out. Not that anyone will probably read this after 150+ comments. And not that anyone cares, but I don't have a pony in this race.

Do you think MLK would have been taken seriously if he had been dressed like a zombie? Do you think that Ceasar Chavez would have accomplished so much in a Guy Faulk mask? Do you think you would know who Ghandi was if he dressed like a Drum Major? No. If you dress like a clown you will be treated as such. If you want to be taken seriously the OA movement, & Better Athens People, need to look like their serious. I think that you find a far diffrent tone if you approached this in a tie and suit. And above all civility.

    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.

    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
