Couple of things

Just rounding up a couple of things here folks as I've been pretty busy, including a drive yesterday morning to meet with a client in North Atlanta which meant, of course, I had to drive into the teeth of rush hour traffic. Also, my cousin got married last weekend and we're having action on folks looking at our house right now so, it's been kinda hectic.

- Brian's got a collection of headlines, but focuses on the widening of Mars Hill Road in Oconee County, which apparently has moved forward without consultation or notification with the Watksinville City Council on which he serves. He and I are in agreement that more careless commercial development with little regard for the existing environment out there - namely, a very wisely crafted downtown area that preserves and promotes the small town feel that is very appealing about Watkinsville - is not something that area needs more of.

- Blake passes on a letter of resignation from the Franklin County chairman for Barry Fleming's campaign, and I think that, coupled with the story, pose problems for the Columbia County Republican. I know I may be out on my own regarding this, but the majority of those 'issues' shamelessly trumped up by Fleming against Paul Broun are out of date and below the belt. Perhaps Fleming will turn out tons of voters in the Augusta area to knock off Broun, but I think this backfires on him. The rural conservatives up here love them some Broun, and this motivates them even more.

- Yes, work hard to build up a team from scratch and then let the hometown kid with tons of promise go.

- Terrance Moore reveals himself to be even a bigger doofus than we all thought.

It is a dog - nothing more. It is not a symbol of the school. Given the fact that UGA has very rarely been at any other event other than football. The "bulldog" nation needs to get over their football first above all else mentality that breads in this town. But what do we expect when the masses only demand their "high and mighty" coach to teach his player anything more than football, afterall. As long as they win.

That is true.

P.S. Good luck on the house front. If you can sell yours, you should be able to have the pick of the litter, so to speak.

I agree with paveplanet. I'm a dog lover and sorry when any dog dies, but you'd have thought we didn't have any really big problems to solve locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally.

I also agree with paveplanet and Moore (in this one instance). We had a colleague die at the university two years ago; he was someone who had taught here for decades. He had a huge impact on the lives of thousands of students. Adams barely noticed this professor's passing, yet he speaks at the funeral for a dog. Sorry, but that's just too much.

All Terence is proving is how eagerly and predictably we Georgia fans take the bait when it comes to premeditated acts of cheap provocation.

And I'm sure he thanks you for the link.
