WAY TO GO Thermal Titans! Plane Pull 2012 winners!! You guys did a great job!

SO THERE WERE people at the Masters who were arrested without monies changing hands? So when those tickets were confiscated, did that mean the ticket owners are now banned from any further Masters even when they didn’t sell or expect monies? And what about the person who only held up fingers and never said anything or even got any ticket? So just holding up fingers in a certain way meant that person had to be arrested? I think that was carrying things too far. And how much ill will do those particular arrests bring to Augusta and Augusta National?

LET’S SAVE THE KIDS and save the death penalty trials: Once you have parents guilty of child abuse and/or child death, sterilize the parents and keep them on lists to NEVER get a child or animal for any reason.

ISN’T IT TIME TO give as much newspaper attention to our students who are going to college for academics as we do for those who are signing on for athletics?

OBAMA REACHED A “deal” with Afghanistan, to give zillions of our dollars for a full decade for “security” in that country. Is there such a thing as “security” in a 6th century society? Ten years from now, who knows how many dictators will we have supported over there?

SENATORS ISAKSON AND Chambliss and Rep. Barrow are all for spending non-existent federal tax money to pay for things like “kayak launch sites” on the Augusta Canal. Rep. Broun is against this waste. The federal government is flat broke so these money wasters want to pour more down the drain, and for what? A kayak launch site? That means a bank on a body of water.

KILLERS KNOW THAT KILLING is wrong, otherwise, they’d do their killing and raping in broad daylight for all to see. If these lawyers would work to ensure their clients get FAIR trials rather than doing anything they can get away with to stall and keep guilty murders and rapists from being executed, they wouldn’t feel any strain. Will modern defense lawyers – mostly taxpayer paid – go back to seeking justice?

Even court appointed

Even court appointed attorneys are REQUIRED to give the most vigorous defense possible. If this weren't so, the occasional innocent defendant would be the one paying the price.

To the person who ranted

To the person who ranted about the newspapers needing to give more attention to the students going away to college: I agree with you. But, to me, the best way for us to let the paper know that we want to see more of those sort of stories is for us to post positive comments under the article whenever we see one written. If they see alot of positive comments (don't see why anyone would put a negative comment under one) then they should take notice and look for more to print. And this would be a good way for the students out there to become more interested in doing well themselves. Try it.

Scarlett: [pleads with Rhett

Scarlett: [pleads with Rhett as he is about to leave to join the Confederate Army] Oh, Rhett! Please, don't go! You can't leave me! Please! I'll never forgive you!
Rhett Butler: I'm not asking you to forgive me. I'll never understand or forgive myself. And if a bullet gets me, so help me, I'll laugh at myself for being an idiot. There's one thing I do know... and that is that I love you, Scarlett. In spite of you and me and the whole silly world going to pieces around us, I love you. Because we're alike. Bad lots, both of us. Selfish and shrewd. But able to look things in the eyes as we call them by their right names.
Scarlett: [struggles] Don't hold me like that!
Rhett Butler: [holds her tighter] Scarlett! Look at me! I've loved you more than I've ever loved any woman and I've waited for you longer than I've ever waited for any woman.
[kisses her forhead]
Scarlett: [turns her face away] Let me alone!

Let Rhett come back home.......does everything have to be GONE WITH THE WIND>>>>>>>>>

RA, sometimes I just don't get your Cliche For The Day but I get this one. As my dentist told me once when I was sitting in his chair with my mouth wide open and his drill was gnawing away, "Pain can be a very effective teacher".

You might want to drop by the Columbia County Arts in the Park festival tomorrow afternoon, Willow. I'll be working a booth there from 1:00 to 4:00. The festival is at the little amphitheatre behind the library.

I just wish we could hear real choo choo trains anymore. I, too, hear from time to time the trains blowing their whistles at street crossings coming in in and out on my side of town.

Happy, glad to know it's not Rambo who has escaped.

Thanks ksl. That woman left

Thanks ksl. That woman left her boa on the porch and walked around her house. When she got back to the porch it was gone. I never put Rambo down and let him crawl except inside his cage. I would never ever leave him outside while I went anywhere. Rambo stays on my shoulders and neck and arms when he is out of his cage.
