Really? This is the best the AC can do? What about the continuous mysterious sounds that came from the Augusta Nationals this past weekend? If I didn't know any better, it sounded like they had a trap and skeet range set up! The gun shot sounding noises went on for about 2 hours nonstop and the public has no idea what was going on, but when a stupid tree limb falls at the Augusta Nationals it gets a story? No wonder news print is going out of business, stories that aren't worth the paper they are printed on....

If a tree falls in Augusta and it is not Masters Week, does it make a sound?

Who gives a rats butt if a tree fell on Augusta National property. I had a tree fall on my property last Thursday when the storms came through and that did not make the news! This type of news reporting is elementary. There was a turtle crossing Reynolds Street earlier this afternoon...are they going to write a story about that too???? Unreal!!!

I saw a drunk guy fall down while crossing Greene Street yesterday. It somehow didn't make the "Breaking News" section.
