In reply to: Ga. Power to double the solar power it buys »

[quote][b]The Oracle of the ABH[/b]"If you want to read a mind numbing, local case which demonstrates the lengths to which the power company was willing to go to avoid having to purchase excess power generated by consumers, run down,

Greensboro Lumber Co. v. Georgia Power Co., 643 F.Supp. 1345 (N.D.Ga. 1986)

You might notice who the last lawyer is that is listed are representing the defendants (power companies).[/quote]

No comment on the case, but I'm glad to see Mr. Barr cashing in on that. He'll always be a hero to me, for standing up for decency like he did, and at such a great personal cost.

Hope your initials aren't JHW; dinner's almost ready and I'd lose my appetite if I thought I'd been kissing your you-know-what.

    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
