Who did you vote for today in the Georgia Presidential Primary (and why?)

March 6, 2012

I originally was going to cross over and pull the lever for former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, but this would be a largely symbolic vote since he appears to be the standard bearer for the Libertarian party now. It seems this state may well be Newt Gingrich's last stand. Several open minded business oriented Republican friends of mine urged me to vote for anyone but Santorum, which I certainly understand. Other mischief makers on the Democratic side were contemplating a "frothy" vote for the former Senator Rick from Pennsylvania. Did you vote for Willard "Mitt" Romney? Or Ron Paul? Or vote for the President on the Democratic side? Or did you stay home and not vote at all today?

    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
