  1. I’m just glad none of my UGA friends followed through on their threats to hurt themselves before the 4th quarter of Saturday’s game. I was getting worried there for a minute. The dawgs rallied and saved many a life.

      In private unions the target is sharing corporate profits. In public unions the target is public dollars and publically elected leaders. The idea that they are legal is a bad one.

  2. Rick Day says:

    So…”Republicans”…CERTAINLY not hoping to recruit students into their ranks, are the ONLY humans that have the ‘heart’ to yet ONE MORE TIME politicize tragedy to political gain? (The well worn implied ‘well, since LIB’RELS won’t take PR chum, we will, therefore we are ‘more American, therefore more worthy’ to lead’ strategy. Morals, yo!).

    So when is the Pearl Harbor Memorial Service to be scheduled? Gettysburg? Oh right, the death is less horrible because one was wearing a uniform at the time. Way to support the military, young Republicans!

    Good grief; will this drum beating ever end??

  3. Toxic Avenger says:

    Georgia Tech College Democrats will also be holding an event to remember those that were lost on 9/11, as well as to celebrate the lives they led.

    It will be at 6 pm on the Klaus Building Lawn.
