Health and safety tip…

Don’t be this guy.

my heart is a little broken today

The smallish blonde person in the following photos is Courtney Gale.   I bought my house from Courtney and her friend Lisa.  She’s a very sweet woman and I like her very much.  Unfortunately, this is what happened to her:  Officer stabbed while working off duty at supermarket An Athens-Clarke police officer remained in critical condition […]

Conversation with a British Person today

Transcript of an instant messaging conversation today: Patrick: god, people and their ringtones!

This week’s white trash piñata

I am developing a theory about a certain kind of news story. I think that the 24 hour news stations cultivate a kind of news coverage of crimes and/or incidents that serve no other purpose than to give a certain segment of the audience something to feel superior about.

This guy might actually have some serious problems, besides his generally obnoxious fulmination. 2. It’s not nice to pick […]

Fred Phelps is coming to Athens

And I am 700 miles away, in Indianapolis. The Westboro Baptist Church is coming to protest a funeral. Probably for the best. I would most certainly end up in jail. There probably isn’t a jury in the country who would convict me, though. I mean, would you send a man to jail for hitting Fred […]
