More Kalberman madness. This gal ought to use her legal fees for a good shrink. Or maybe an editor for a tell-all book? One that’s sold on the fiction shelf.

GT maintains strong positions in USN&WR’s 2013 Rankings. Held steady at #7 public school/#36 overall in the U.S.

Not mentioned are some of the NATS’ grad school rankings……#4 for Engineering (overall) and #32 for Business Schools.

From the linked article about the three running for SD 30:

“Joining the race Wednesday were state Rep. Bill Hembree, 46, of Winston; James Naughton, 52, a Carrollton business consultant; and former Georgia Secretary of State Glenn Richardson, 52, of Hiram.”

Did I sleep through Richardson’s time as Secretary of State?

I chuckled at the masthead on the Times-Georgian newspaper this article is from: Carroll County’s Trusted Information Leader Since 1871.

Does that work?

benevolus September 13, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Nope.

Don’t be too hard on them, Calypso. What can you expect from a bunch of inbreds who can barely spell, much less care if they get the facts right.

So it seems that Georgia ranks in at #5 in the listing of most miserable drivers.

Also, seems another renewable energy (wood pellet) plant is coming and looks to bring around 80 jobs to Jeff Davis county (around Hazlehurst).

PS: What’s with all the bold font all over the place?

Someone forgot to close their html tag. Should be fixed now.

analogkid September 13, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Or not.

griftdrift September 13, 2012 at 3:26 pm

Awesome

Calypso September 13, 2012 at 3:32 pm

oops

griftdrift September 13, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Remain calm! All is well!

Calypso September 13, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Chip Diller, how can I go close the HTML tag (since I was the one playing around and screwed it up?)

Engineer September 13, 2012 at 3:42 pm

Let’s see if that works

Engineer September 13, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Well I tried putting in “” to break it, no dice

#htmlfail

Calypso September 13, 2012 at 5:14 pm

I can’t look at this post much longer. My monitor is running out of pixels due to all the bold chara

Napoleon September 13, 2012 at 6:16 pm

This could have all been avoided if we still had the “modify” feature.

Ken September 13, 2012 at 6:51 pm

I guess that means no more posts unless what one has to say is very important.

Big day for stocks, gold, mortgage debt and borrowing as Feds stimulate. Not so good for the savers who continue with rates held under water.

The deeper and bigger we blow up the underwater balloon the more exciting it will be when it surfaces.
