If people see her coming... then run,...well, I have no problem with that, but she might.

Right. Who cares? If he were to go back in, I still wouldn't care.

Athens teen allegedly beats and chokes mother in cellphone dispute

I'd lock him out of the house. He could do more than a chokehold.

Convicted murderer sues state over prison porn ban

So what about the rights of the guy he killed? Pink took them all away, including the right to breathe. Seems prison is not prison when you can get more behind bars than on the outside, even with a job.

Dallas nurses cite sloppy conditions in Ebola care

Left in an open area? Worked with or around the patient without protective gear? Changing protocol, or no protocol, you expect people who have such important responsibilities to have common sense.

Downtown Athens is a dangerous place to be, especially alone and at night.

Woman caught in jury duty scam

Being threatened and frightened out of your wits is no joking matter. Scammers have picked out their victims, usually older people, and formed plans. It is they who should be criticized, ostracized, and jailed for lengthy periods. I would throw away the cell key. Angry

1st Ebola patient diagnosed in US dead

Health agencies from the world over should have jumped on this long ago. What goes around comes around, but this needed not to have been the killer it turned out to be. American health agencies and those of other countries should put more rigor into the well-being of its citizens. Everyone fell short here. Why? Because Africa is afar? That is not so: the world goes around in circles, and we must all be committed to protect one another world wide.

    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
