they're proud of it

The Savannah Morning News has a new web page. They're very proud of it, but it seems a little too busy for me. (A woman designed it. What do you expect?) But I do like one thing about it--- I don't have to register to read it.

Maybe I can actually, y'know... LINK to stories in my hometown paper now.

I have a rock-ribbed rule that I NEVER violate. If I've got to register to enter a site, I don't read it. Period. And I don't leave comments on blogs that require comment registration, either. I ain't gonna do that. It violates my KISS theory and it looks uppity to me. Just what makes YOU so fucking special, anyway?

I ain't gonna find out how great you are if I have to register first. Blow me.

I read this story in the dead-tree version of the paper yesterday. It's typical of what happens a LOT in downtown Savannah anymore.

Dontre Graham, 27, and Okirike Lfere Okirike, 26, were arrested. Graham is charged with three counts of aggravated assault. Okirike is charged with being a party to aggravated assault. He also has been charged with numerous traffic violations, including driving under the influence, Wilson said.

They shot three Fort Stewart soldiers after an argument over beer. These gangtsa gunslingers were damned good shots, too. The victims?

They have been identified as Robert Williams, 23, Devin Drennon, 21, and Shadrack Sims, 19, all soldiers who are stationed at Fort Stewart.

Williams and Drennon were listed in fair condition at Memorial Health University on Saturday night. Sims had been discharged.

Bejus. That's what happens when you watch a lot of movies and learn to hold a pistol sideways 'n chit, while waving it around like a REAL tough guy. The shooter is lucky that he didn't blow his own dick off. Asshole.

I don't mean to brag or threaten here, but if I ever shoot at you I know some folks who will ruin your entire day if you pick a gunfight with THEM. They ain't gonna be wavin' the gun around, holding it sideways and talking shit. I'm They're gonna put two rounds in your chest and one in your head.

If I they miss, it won't be by much, and the only way YOU'RE gonna be "released" from the hospital is in a plastic body bag on its way to a funeral home. That dumbfuck pistolero is lucky that his showboatin' ass is still alive today. He wouldn't be breathing if he pulled that shit on uh... other people I know.

Hell, I'll bet that I coulda made him see the error of his ways myself. That's IF I owned any guns, of course...

(Speaking of shootings... here's another good lawsuit. It's the bar's fault. Or the bank that owns the bar. Whatever.)


It's also too wide, and makes little sense, cohesively.

That web page is a model of what NOT to do when you are designing a web page.

The little popup ads that you have to click the "x" to close in front of the headlines are a real treat, too.

You posted the pertinent info....

Hope ya get to read soon that those pricks came across somebody bigger and badder and more deadly.

BTW, Acidman, that shooting technique that you mentioned, two in the chest and one in the gourd, has a name. It is called "Mozambique".

Care to guess why?

If my name was Savannah, I'd be stealing those buttons for my own page... especially the "do Savannah button" ;)

Carry a 9MM semi-auto with a 15 round clip. fire three round burst dead at the center of the chest. Widest part of the body. Should have one round left minimum for a shot to the head. Dead men don't sue nor testify.

charged with ... aggravated assault? WTF?

Seriously, trying to kill three people over a frickin beer, and they get charged with aggravated assault?

If they were willing to do that to three men, what would they do to my grandmother?

Fuck Savannah.
