Don_Coyote 2 years, 1 month ago on OUR VIEW: Policy is changing on anonymous online commenting

Dear (none)12,

If the GDP actually asked the local politicos and chamber types the questions that matter rather than just serving as their mouthpiece and "legal organ" then anonymous comments wouldn't be necessary.

I used the internet before it obtained the name and learned decades ago the perils of using my unique name. I also do not participate on Facebook and therefore bid you adieu while I charge at my windmills elsewhere.

Sincerely, Don Coyote

Revenue-wise it is a win-win for the state coffers. Blue lights not only generate the traffic infraction revenue but also cause more congestion which generates more revenue for the Lexus Lane.


Don_Coyote 2 years, 1 month ago on Florida to sue Georgia over water

I'm failing to understand how the Corps' draining of the reservoirs during drought periods is not providing more water to the basin than they would otherwise be seeing during those periods.

Florida is welcome to my storm water runoff if they will pay the Gwinnett BOC imposed "fees" for me.

There is no way that a divided 4 lane highway that has miles between major intersections should not have the same 55 mph speed limit that it had as a non-divided two lane. Well, maybe one reason, R-E-V-E-N-U-E.


Don_Coyote 2 years, 2 months ago on Officials celebrate long-awaited Ga. 20 widening in Sugar Hill

Please urge your legislators to put an amendment on the ballot allowing the state motor fuel tax monies to be distributed to each congressional district proportional to the percentage collected from each district. As it stands today, the distribution is equal to each district and we end up with unnecessary four lanes in the boondocks while projects like this come about 30 years late.

Will the Winner, aka Chip Rogers has set the early odds at 10 to 1 and giving 10 points in the guvna's favor.

[sarcasm] I am shocked, shocked I tell you that they have approved another Lexus Lane project to offset the $2 Billion+ in GARVEE bonds issued so far by SRTA. [/sarcasm]


Don_Coyote 2 years, 3 months ago on Karin Slaughter talks to fans about latest book

Ms. Slaughter is an excellent writer and her appearances to benefit the libraries are greatly appreciated. If you aren't too squeamish her books are worth the read for the local references to the fictional Grant County, GA and the not so fictional metro Atlanta locales. Having dark themes and a general noir grittiness her books are right up there with Connelly tinged with more than a bit of Southern Gothic.

I did wonder from the headline if the Democratic party had reached charity status around here. Yellow Dog Democrats in the South seem to be headed to extinction.

What kind of legal expenses are incurred by both parties for a DUI case that ends up in the State Supreme Court? We know that no matter what, the lawyers get paid.
