Woman Returns Pants That Pat Dye Doesn’t Remember Losing

I had to check out Obi’s Sister’s site, since the only thing I know about Obi’s Sister is that we both agree that Carver’s Store Rocks.

There, from a few days ago, I found this gem about Pat Dye getting an old pair of plaid pants returned to him after a nice lady found them 23 years after they were lost, on the shores of Lake Martin.

The best part of the story is that Coach Dye doesn’t remember losing them.  Oh, to be 23 years younger again.

There’s also this much longer piece about transformational forces in the current global political and economic environment.  A bit geeky, but a good read if you have the time.

I’ll have to check out Obi’s Sister more often.  Since neither of the above two links are about GA Politics, consider this 1) A Reminder that college football season starts next month, and 2) an open thread.

    @Icarus, anyone who does NOT take the time to read the so-called longer ‘geek bit’ you posted, is NOT doing themselves a favor.

    Great post, keep up the goof humor and good work.

    @Erick My manners this 6:04AM were tacky —

    Thank you for posting the audio of Albert Chambers message, warts and all. I came HERE FIRST, knowing the NEWS would BE HERE. No, not anywhere else but HERE.

    I put these two topics together, on purpose. One premise of the ‘geek-bit’ is globally people are now in tune with events via the ‘net. In real time, we are now a forming opinions (‘buzz’) based on real time info. Lots of books on this now.

    Much like the implication of EVERY major new innovation in the 20th century could not predicted, so too, the implication of the ‘net are largely unknown.

    The ‘net spells may spell an end to a lot of political foolishness, people can connect, get the ‘buzz’ and VOTE. Or, it opens a Pandora’s Box of new foolery.

    Grave responsiblilty or graven misuse?

    Is the ‘net accurate, who put the story out there, and since there are no ‘mastheads’, who is the voice responsible for the message?

    Anonymous and deadly, or accurate and known?

    Witness Dunwoody: (sorry, but great example)

    Focused, dedicated, tech savvy groups (Citizens FOR Dunwoody, Dun/North, The Crier) have shown all of us that they can push their position in a coordinated and seemingly effective manner.

    In the past we saw, print news outlets and political machines (Tamminy Hall [sp]) doing this work. The process has evolved, exactly as the ‘geek bit’ describes to the ‘net, a few corporate owners of virtually ALL TV/Cable news-a-tainment shows.

    Read the article, Icarus softpedalled it, very illuminating stuff.

    VOTE JULY 15

    VOTE No to MORE Gov’t and HIGHER taxes.

    If you took out the mention of football and maybe added a “Matt Towery is God” I would have thought Spacey was posting this hun

    Thanks for the link! It is nice when someone notices…

    Sometimes I wonder if I should have started a food blog instead. At least I wouldn’t stay so frustrated with political morons, but local AND national.

    For those looking for a good lunch (and who isn’t these days) on the west side of downtown, did you know that Thumbs Up is opening a new location on Marietta St., just east of the Northside Drive intersection? Last I heard, possibly late August. Doubt it will put a dent in Carver’s business, but more options are always nice, especially as gas prices soar.

    I’m not familiar with Thumbs Up, but since I trust your judgement on intown restaurants, I’ll try to work it in.

    Anyone with a Dawgnation section on their blog can’t be too far off the mark.
