Occupy’s Values Tested at May Day Rally

I was at the rally and agree with JP..
For me it was a very sad moment. When one of the main issues of the day is the cost of higher ed and the lack of jobs available to grads it seems to me that alienating students who are not part of the rally was very short sighted. These are potential recruits to the movement and the conflict was a very big turn-off for those who just wanted a photo to remember their experiences at UGA. I felt ashamed by the short sighted, mis-directed, confrontational behavior.
I am a very radical supporter of the occupy movement and feel that what happened was not called for.
Peace,
Todd Lister

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
