Police seek duo who stole elderly Athens woman's credit cards, charged $10k

Every store should be responsible for the charges for not asking for identification.

Maybe, maybe not. I'm not a registered republican, but I would never vote for a democrat that walks in lockstep with Obama.

That was such an idiotic statement it actually made me laugh. We both know why they vote for democrats. "Because, democrats love us and give us free stuff." Btw, you are a prime example of a democrat. A mindless zombie.

Georgia Bulldogs ready to hit back after loss to South Carolina

When you lose look for excuses. Wet ball, bad officiating, whatever. Has Mark Richt ever said, we were poorly coached?... Top ten recruits every year so what else can it be but coaching. Ga. has the third most players in the NFL, but that hasn't transpired into a national championship for the dawgs. Oh, well. They should beat up on little Troy this weekend.

Ferguson video shows witness raising hands in air

[quote][b]melquiades[/b] - So what is your source of what you call facts?[/quote]

Strong arm robbery is a fact. Brown having pot in his blood stream is a fact. Officer Wilson was taken to the hospital for a swollen face is a fact.

[quote][b]melquiades[/b] - @theold33: and you've pretty much exonerated him? I guess you are impyling that if a suspect has a physical alteration with an LEO, then that LEO is entitled to shoot him to death later, even if he's standing with his hands up?[/quote]

You need to read my post again, slowly this time. I said what happened between Brown beating Wilson and being shot will come out in the grand jury report. Everything else I stated is fact. And you don't know that Brown was standing with his hands in the air giving up until the official report comes out.

South Carolina upsets Georgia, 38-35

The "defense" and the special team share the blame in this loss, but the "defense" created two turnovers in South Carolina territory and the offense only got three points out of it. Usually when you win the turnover battle in the SEC, you win the game. That is if you take advantage of it. Poor play calling in critical situations is a BoBo trademark.

Blog: UGA postgame report: Richt and Mason on first-and-goal call (and much more)

Excuses for a wet field is just an excuse. Mason made a bad play but the fault is on Bobo for calling the play. As far as it taking a year or two for the defense to come around. I've heard that before.

Column: Just give Todd Gurley the ball

I don't think anybody has said, give Gurley the ball all of the time. Hell, he only ran the ball 20 times. But, when you're on the 4 yard line with the best back in the country. You feed him the ball 4 times. Even Richt admits that now. You play to win the game and you win the game giving the ball to your best player. That should be a no brainer.

Column: Just give Todd Gurley the ball

Thanks Fletcher Page for an honest assessment of the game instead of being just another Georgia sports writer apologist. Yes, Georgia beat Georgia and will continue to get beat until a smarter OC is hired. Says a lot about the coaches when the DC and the OC aren't made available for comments after the game.

South Carolina upsets Georgia, 38-35

Same old song. When it's gets crunch time, booboo calls a dumb-ass play. 1st down on the 4 yard line with the best back in the country and Booboo calls a pass play. Like I said after the Clemson win. If you get too high on the Dawgs you're going to get your heart broken. Top ten recruits, but Richt and Booboo are still there.

Sounds like the media has pretty much convicted officer Wilson. Here's what we do know. Brown robbed a store, was smoking pot, hit Wilson and tried to take his gun and was shot and killed by Wilson. What happened between Brown beating Wilson and being shot will come out of the grand jury. I will be surprised if Wilson isn't indicted.That doesn't mean he's guilty or will convicted though.

Police: George Zimmerman accused of threatening driver

[quote][b]proftom[/b] - And your point is what?[/quote]

It was sarcasm. But, I will explain it so that even you will get it. In the past, every article always mentioned that Zimmerman's dad was white just to play the race angle. GET IT???

Ok, buddy. I know at your age the memory starts going, but if you remember some of my previous post I've mentioned living in Hull for a time. Now, I know that's just over the line but it's still in Madison Co. Btw, at my age I can't afford to give up 5 years of my life. 39 and holding. Wink

    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
