The stories of 2 brothers suspected in bombing

[quote][b]McCarthy[/b] - I bet the left wing progressive nutjobs are sad to hear it wasn't a tea party member, or some radical right wing group who was responsible. They put their heads in the sand when foreign folks come over here and start killing innocent Americans.

Charges filed in downtown Athens attack

[quote][b]xMarauderx[/b] - @THX1138: These kids tend to use real IDs, and if they look legitimate and it resembles the person, than we really don't have a way to prove that it isn't them. Do you expect us to go through every person's wallet and search for additional IDs? We do what we can to prevent kids from being able to use their fake IDs, even going as far as to quiz them on it. Really, we are probably one of the hardest bars on it in town. But when they have a legit, unexpired ID and know all of the information on it, how are we supposed to refuse them? You've obviously never ID'd at a bar before.

THX1138 has probably never BEEN in a bar before.
I feel for you.

[quote][b]THX1138[/b] - So doesn't this make GA Theater responsible for serving an underage idiot?

No. He had a fake id. You clearly have no idea how sophisticated fake id operations can be, and how real the id themselves can look.

Athens woman's 'barking' sparks fracas with teen

"The investigating officer wrote in an incident report he was unable to determine who the primary aggressor ... because everyone involved was crazy."

UGA moves to fire tenured professor

i don't care what happens between consenting adults, but if you can't follow a very clear policy associated with your job (that you knew about before you took the job) or you just don't care (because as one person said, you are "clueless narcissist" - which this guy is probably more of a calculating narcissist), then you should be fired. really, this is an egregious offense. it's not stealing a pencil or even showing up drunk once.

[quote][b]emanon[/b] -
Yes, and a quick way to kill off studies abroad would be for the whole thing to get a reputation for sexual irresponsibility and predation. We need to tell our students and faculty that this isn't a place for "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" -- that they are representing our university and our country at all times and should not do anything they don't want the public to find out about later.

study abroad programs can be great experiences for those not fearful of others cultures. many involve very enriching service learning projects (please don't pathetic jokes about that statement, because they are just too obvious and they'd be lackluster at best.) they are too expensive for many student.

    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
