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: 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
