Poor David. I guess you will just have to take a different route now that those 3 crosses (that cost $700,000 you know) are right next to I-75. I suggest using Bonnie Oaks, but make sure you keep your eyes straight ahead and look directly right or left. Do NOT allow your eyes to look slighly up to your right or slightly up to your left depending on which way your are traveling. Otherwise, you might just catch a glimpse of those 3 crosses.
Why in the world do the Atlanta Falcons want to build a new $1 billion football stadium and implode their current one? Their current stadium is just fine. How many starving people could $1 billion feed David?
Why did Blue Cross build such a HUGE campus on Cameron Hill? I'm sure they could have cut back a bit and used the savings to feed the hungry. Right David?
Why couldn't the new Embassy Suites off of Shallowford Rd have been built with one less floor? It's just WAY too big. I mean, I can SEE it from the interstate for goodness sakes. The Embassy Suites people could have just given those savings to charity David. Instead, when I'm driving up and down I-75, I have to SEE that monstrosity of a hotel.
Why is the Chattanooga Times Free Press currently spending money to update their printing presses/buy new ones? The current look is fine. No need to do that. David, you should be ashamed that the organization you work for doesn't just give that money to the homeless shelter downtown instead.
Why on God's (sorry David) green Earth did Volkswagon put a GIGANTIC sign on top of their assembly plant just so people flying in airplanes or looking in via satellite could see it? Surely, we (yes we the taxpayers who paid for that sign in the incentives we gave them) could have given that almost $300,000 to help vacinate some kids against the measles.
I'm curious, David, as to why you haven't written about these types of spending items, yet you are firing away at a church that spends money on 3 crosses? I think I know why...
CeeLo could have just shown a little class. If he would have done that, everyone would have been fine. Well, I guess except for CeeLo of course. He's an "artist" you know, and as an "artist", I'm sure he just couldn't compromise his lyrics (even though he does so all the time when he REALLY has to). So, CeeLo showed up 45 minutes late, cursed, drank some Tequilla shots, and exposed his a$$ to everyone in the crowd. Funny thing is that CeeLo actually came out looking like an a$$ (after showing his A$$) instead of showing some class. See, I can rhyme with the best of them. Word!
Honestly, if this is the type of editorial crap that is going to be on this page, then either fire the new guy in charge or I'm cancelling my subscription. This reads like a 1st grader has written it. Horrible.
Sad wyldmon. Just sad. You miss the entire point. Not surprising.
But the president IS that bad David. You just seem indoctrinaaated (whoops! I mispelled that David! Uh oh.) to think the government should be the panacea for EVERYTHING. Of course, if you REALLY think Ted Nugent was going to do something to seriously harm the President, then you obviously have zero ability to take somthing (left out the "e" just for you David) IN CONTEXT. It was pretty obvious Nugent wasn't going to do anything if you actually listened to what he said IN CONTEXT.
Tyson Clabo didn't attend The University of Tennessee, but his daddy did.
Fine with me Jay. A good trade for the Braves was nabbing a very young John Smoltz from Detroit for a very old Doyle Alexander. Of course, the all time worst trade (actually he was "sold"..so maybe not a "real" trade) was the Red Sox sending Babe Ruth to the Yankees. Bret Favre from the Falcons to the Packers for a 1st rounder wasn't pretty if you are a Falcons fan.
The Braves trade for Mark Texiera (who lasted the last half of one season and 1st half of another with them) may be one of the worst of all time. The Braves gave up the following for Texiera (and reliever Ron Mahay): Matt Harrison (who pitched in the All Star game last night), Elvis Andrus (who played in the All Star game last night), Neftali Feliz (who won the Rookie of the Year award for the Rangers a couple of years ago) and Jarrod Saltalamacchia (who has 17 homers at the break for the Red Sox). I guess Braves fans should be glad that Beau Jones, the other player the Braves gave up, hasn't done anything in the majors...yet.
Fredi Gonzalez once again shows his incompetence. How this guy is still employed is beyond me. Minor is pitcing an absolute gem...one out in the 8th...Jeter grounds a single to right...wasn't hit hard at all. Granderson, a lefty, is up next to face the lefty Mike Minor. One more batter, and maybe you pull him. Maybe. What does Fredi do? He pulls Minor. Unreal.
So, now we have Venters in the game...the Venters who has stuggled mightily so far this year. Ok. Venters proceeds to get Mark Wohlers/Rick Ankiel disease (again) and can't find the plate...at all. He loads the bases with Yankees, and one of the best right handed power hitters of all time comes up. Does Fredi tell Venters to hit the showers after his pitiful showing? Nope. Does Fredi bring in a righty to face Rodriquez? Nope. Fredi opts to let the left handed Venters pitch to the right handed Rodriquez. The Venters who has loaded the bases and struggled mightily this year. Grand Slam. Fredi, for some reason, leaves Venters in, and Venters gives up anohter hit. Now Nick Swisher, a very good left handed bat who can jack it out of the park, is coming to the plate. What does the thinking man's manager (yeah right) Fredi Gonzalez do? Well, why not bring in the side arming righty Corey Gearrin. You know, the Corey Cearrin who just got called up from the minors, who's practically still a rookie, who's NEVER been in a huge game like this in his life, who just pitched two innings the night before, the side-arming righty who was absolutely destroyed by left handed hitters last year? Yeah, THAT guy would be pefect in this situation Fredi! Swisher takes it over the wall for a 2 run homer.
Honestly, Frank Wrenn needs to give Fredi his walking papers ASAP and put Pendleton in as interim manager for the rest of the year. Fredi is the type of manager who will lose you several games a year because of bone headed decision after bone headed decision. He's terrible.
Here's another reason to give Shulman his pink slip: Kennesaw State (yes Kennesaw State) is 3 and 22 this year. Guess who one of their three victories was against in Chattanooga back on 11/18? You guessed it.
