UGA employee arrested for impersonating an officer

@Rubrical: The first step is admitting you have a drinking problem. I wish you luck in your recovery. As one old timer and attorney in Athens used to say in meetings, Alcoholism is a disease and that's why the American Medical Association declares it so. Hope your insurance pays for your treatment.

Coca-Cola to cut 750 jobs in US

@snarky dude: Yeah, Coke CEOs really deserve to make 30 million a year. My Coca Cola stock has barely grown in over 20 years so they aren't that knowledgeable. Maybe because the CEOs are living off most of the profit.

The filthy rich CEO's of Coke are the ones who should be fired. Why should they get to live like royalty while 750 employees lose their job?

Oconee man airlifted to hospital after injury in meth lab

Wish they'd give the name. I am so hoping it's a nasty meth head I used to know who keeps getting arrested and then back on the streets to abuse, steal from, and control more women.

4 naked protesters arrested defying nudity ban

@E.J.: I gardened in the nude in the middle of the night this past summer. It felt so good.

Athens man arrested after assaulting mom

The detective and police didn't do [filtered word] when I called to report my former abuser broke the one year protective order. I heard the same complaint from other women at the Project Safe meetings.

Gunman's mother kept trials of home life hidden

@schaeffer: I agree with you and blame the mother too. She and her ex should have put him in a long term mental health care facility. They had the money. It's her fault she had guns in her house around such an obviously mentally ill son. I have a gun permit, but I don't think any parent should have guns in the house. I don't care if they have it under lock and key because kids will snoop and find a way.

Torn hair weaves, bitten breast mark aftermath of fight between Athens women

@grove600: I can go with that, but be careful about #2 because there are some good parents whose kids chose to be bad.

Police: Atlanta news anchor arrested in DUI crash

Sounds like Bill has a new friend. Alcoholism is a serious disease and not funny! I wish her success in sobriety.

Torn hair weaves, bitten breast in fight between Athens women

@grove600: How are you going to stop them from having babies, and what is going to happen if all these babies don't have food to eat? You're okay with them just dying? I'm not. Once a child is born, I am okay with my tax dollars helping poor people. Maybe it should be a law that men and women below the poverty level have to get vasectomies and their tubes tied after the first child. All of us need to find a solution to poverty, and having babies people can't afford is something that needs to be stopped.

Who's your favorite Bond?

@E.J.: The characters had more depth. This James Bond is more sensitive and has defects, which he is aware of but is given a second chance to redeem himself when M (Judi Dench) lies for him. He's gritty, brave and smart the way I like men. The character actors were really good, and I even felt empathy for the bad guy (Javier Bardem) and could understand his motives. The giant jellyfish in Shanghai was really cool to watch, and the men in the audience made it known they liked Bond's car. It's a pretty good movie to watch but not great.

Woman alleges Waffle House CEO demanded sex acts

@E.J.: She could be lying, but from my own personal experiences with a few bosses and two teachers of mine, I know it's possible. I don't think a jury is going to rule in her favor though. I know I couldn't have put up with it for 10 years. It's impossible for me to hide contempt and disrespect. I would have gone after him long before then, but I know teachers who wouldn't testify against a principal because they were single mothers and were afraid of losing their income. The Professional Practices Commission believed those of us who did, and he was fired. Of course the Board of Education created a new job for him!

@human69: Pathetic that some bosses say the most disgusting sexual things to their employees. Pathetic that they try and touch their breasts. Pathetic they have affairs with their employees when they are both married. It's a pathetic world we live in.

Who's your favorite Bond?

@E.J.: Just wanted to let you know that this James Bond movie was not all about Bond having sex with beautiful women. It was a pleasant surprise to me that it had a pretty good plot. I get bored easily but had no problem sitting through this 2 1/2 hour long movie. I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

I hope she tape recorded him, had a hidden camera or some other good evidence to prove her case. Men and women who abuse their authority should pay for it out of their own pocket and not the company's though. I hope that CEO loses all his assets as an example to the rest of the bosses out there that sexual harassment in the workplace is a crime and punishable in a court of law.

NY man who lost leg in crucifix mishap sues church

@bredsouthern: No, I don't watch it. I'm not a TV person at all. Not only did you fail English class, but you failed Bible study too. Why would someone who claims to be a Christian insult Northerners? James 1:26 "If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless." Go study James 4:11, Romans 14:10, and Ephesians 4:31, and please go back to school! You are a Southern stereotype who makes Southerners look bad. Go read Hebrews 13:1-3 about hospitality too because I always heard Southerners were hospitable. Bless your little pea pickin heart.

Deal suggests Georgia unlikely to run health exchange

@E.J.: I have thought for a long time now that I wish I could meet you in person. I really can't believe how much we have in common, except I like James Bond movies and you don't!

Deal suggests Georgia unlikely to run health exchange

@fred astaire: Don't you realize that the more people there are who can't afford insurance, the more they are going to rely on your taxes and higher premiums to pay for their healthcare? White collar greed makes me sick and is one of the many things wrong with America. There will never be peace as long as the rich get richer and the poor stay poor and oppressed. What's so bad about everyone being able to have access to affordable insurance and getting the best medical care?

Deal suggests Georgia unlikely to run health exchange

@E.J.: Yes, I'm self-employed. BCBS goes up on me every year, but they are the only ones who will accept me. I have a $2500 deductable. Just spent $205 on preventative medicine today that's not covered. I don't want to risk losing my house, so that's why I have it. I have friends who use the emergency room when they get a cold, and I tell them they are costing me money and I don't appreciate it. I tell them to go to the Health Clinic, but I guess they think they're too good for it. I've gone there and see nothing wrong with it.

Who's your favorite Bond?

@E.J.: I like Bond movies and am going to see the new one with a friend this weekend. It's gotten good reviews. I don't go for the stupid plots but to see the exotic places, interesting architecture, and beautiful people. It's a fantasy escape for me. I support beautiful women who work what they have to their advantage as long as it's their choice.

Deal suggests Georgia unlikely to run health exchange

@E.J.: I'm not a taker, but I deal with the scammers every day. They have to prove their source of income, and it's always their children's SSI. I still voted for Obama. My idea is to pay poor people cash if they will voluntarily have a tubal ligation when they are in the hospital having their first child. I'm for taxpayer funded vasectomies too. I want to live in a nation where the poor are helped, but they've learned to work the system just like the rich have learned to work it to their advantage. I've had at least two dates with wealthy men who told me they were writing me off as a business expense when taking me out to dinner! My insurance premium is now over a $1000/month and no mental health is covered, nor is my most expensive medicine, so I'm hoping for better health care options in the future. Otherwise, I'm going to be poor and the taxpayers will have to support me.

He punched her in the face for no good reason, so what do you have to say about that?

What did you do to make women hit you? I think you did the right thing by leaving.

    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
