Georgia lawmaker outlines plan for shipping medical marijuana

I sure would like to read the research that says MJ or any derivative has any beneficial effect on disease or neurological conditions

Georgia inmate who's come close to death 3 times to die Tuesday

Ever notice that on these kinds of extended appeals there is never any question of guilt? I gather a defense attorney does not care whether or not their client is guilty but only if they can get him off on the charge. Don't think I could do that for a living, no matter how liberal I could be.

60 years ago, Athens entered annals of unexplained UFO sightings

Seems a certain used car salesman had an encounter with an alien that was reported by Banner Herald or Daily News. This 'creature' was reproduced in an drawing(Drunk as I recall. It might be interesting to see that story again

Academy president responds to Oscar firestorm

This has got to be perplexing. Likely the most liberal group of people outside of the democratic party being accused of racial and gender bias. Oh the shame ! Laughing out loud

UPDATE: UGA student fatally shot during suspected drug deal

[quote][b]ElevatorLady[/b] - He didn't get shot in the head because of being high. He got shot in the head because he had to interact with a ruthless criminal in order to buy and/or sell pot. Legalized/regulated/taxed marijuana transactions can take place in the light of day, with a legitimate business owner. [/quote]

Whoa! Just how do you know this? Maybe you need to give a statement to the police. You making assumptions, or running your mouth of what? I am guessing the latter.
I believe it was still 'the light of day' prior to the time of law enforcement notification at 4:20 PM.

Romney considering 3rd run for White House

Mitt needs to understand that the people of this country don't want him for president. He and his dirty tricks knocked out better candidates when he got the nomination the last election. Karma can bite you on the backside Mitt - stay at home and count your money, you have no personality to relate to the common man.

Suspected French police corner shooting suspects, who take hostage

"Suspected" French police corner shooting suspects, who take hostage

Am I mis-reading this? Does this author suspect those who cornered the suspects are police?

Pedestrian flags installed at two Athens crosswalks

Those who live on the east side have to cross at the lights or corners. Even the privileged of Five Points don't have flags! You guys on Broad - pay attention, no flags for you either!

After spotlight, Ferguson faces a challenging road forward

Had an old truck like this team one time. Ran great and would pull a train at times, then at times it would sputter and snort and was weak as an old lady.
This was still the most talented team with the most depth that Georgia has fielded in many years. But, some Saturdays they just didn't bring their game to the stadium with the team. Great game last night.

Richt: Mr. Stability in the SEC

Interesting and probably a factual story. This current team is likely as talented he has had with as much depth as any Georgia team ever. Yet we are in 13th place! I like him and think he is a great guy with a lot of charisma and a good Christian. But coach, where are the rings?

    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.

    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
