Remember the definition of insanity.  That would buy a whole lotta chicken.  The dire predictions of Thunder Dome, but worse, are greatly exaggerated.  Prayers for a blog friend, Kathy.  Invest in some of those germs masks, they said.  My face.  My business.   Beautiful, brilliant Cardiff.  Faster, please.  Yet another reason to hate dementia. RIP Terry

Atlanta in the 1920’s. MLK events around town. Good advice. But it’s better, right? No kidding (said from the blissful quiet of the half-empty “collaborative” office space). Is the Yoko comparison too harsh?  Or not harsh enough? Who wants one of these? Feats of strength. Or something. Laws are for little people. I could go

Georgia’s last decade wasn’t half bad.  New laws effective January 1. I, for one, won’t miss Gary one bit. Yesterday was a monumental day in history. What is Boxing Day, really?

Nice aircraft carrier you’ve got there. Oops.    The creep factor is high down there.  Swoon for holiday sweets. Geminids meteor shower will light up the

Saving the Capricorn. Taking one (or eleven) for the team.  Welcome home. Not the Onion.  Or even the Bee.  Non-spying (yet) alternatives to Google. Always searching for clues about our neighbors. No one told us that Sheldon Cooper moved to Ohio. Faster, please. No, on so many levels. And then our hearts grew three sizes

Herschel Walker, Mr. Football. Larry would be so proud. A little something to put on your Christmas List. (GeorgiaPol Road Show, perhaps? HintHint.) RIP, Fred Cox. Your story is never finished, as long as you’re alive. It’s a shame that these days we have to explain what “Be Nice” means, over and over again. The

Great news – President Jimmy Carter up and moving around.  Sometimes Babylon Bee looks like a real news site. Dolly is the Queen of Everything.  Hamburger history. Anybody into vintage subway cars?  A long line of tiny Mr. Rogers. Gannett now nation’s largest publisher. A big “Bah, Humbug!” to Durham, New Hampshire. Strange gases mean
