City of Savannah Government
Who did this?! Someone placed googly eyes on our historic #NathanaelGreene statue in #JohnsonSquare. It may look funny but harming our historic monuments and public property is no laughing matter, in fact, it's a crime.

We are hoping to find the person responsible! If you have information, please call Savannah Police Department


Almost all of Savannah is laughing at the over the top response from the city.

Love these yard signs -- seen everywhere in Savannah

Trump asks Mueller to ferret out anonymous.



Trump knows Mueller will find the truth. He really knows.

NPR: The School Shootings That Weren't



How many times per year does a gun go off in an American school? We should know. But we don't.

This spring the U.S. Education Department reported that in the 2015-2016 school year, "nearly 240 schools ... reported at least 1 incident involving a school-related shooting." The number is far higher than most other estimates.

But NPR reached out to every one of those schools repeatedly over the course of three months and found that more than two-thirds of these reported incidents never happened. Child Trends, a nonpartisan nonprofit research organization, assisted NPR in analyzing data from the government's Civil Rights Data Collection.

We were able to confirm just 11 reported incidents, either directly with schools or through media reports.

This discrepancy is large and very strange.

Local "your time is up" for sexual assaulter/harasser of waitstaff

Emelia Holden, you rock!


Just desserts! Waitress turns tables on customer who grabbed her backside by slamming him to the floor and calling the cops
Emelia Holden, 21, was taking orders at Vinnie Van Go-Go's in Savannah, Georgia
By ALEX GREEN FOR MAILONLINE

A young waitress got her own back on a man who grabbed her backside - by throwing him to the floor and giving him a very public shaming.

Emelia Holden, 21, was taking orders at Vinnie Van Go-Go's in Savannah, Georgia, when the man walked past and touched her bottom.

In CCTV footage, Holden turns and grabs the man before throwing him against the wall.

Police were called to the scene and arrested the pervert immediately after being shown the damning CCTV footage.

Heading back to AZ to visit family.



Cornville, Cottonwood, and Page Springs areas.

I'm bringing my 13 yr old son to see his Grandpa and Grandma on my side. They are getting up there in years and things are breaking down fast with them.

I'll take him on a rail ride from Williams to GC and spend some time in Flag. Show him my alma mater.

I do miss the hire desert and life above the Mogollon Rim.

Mike Pence, St. Paddy's Day Parade, Art, and Protest

I posted some of these images in another thread but thought they might make a nice OP.

Pence clan (Mike Pence, his wife (aka mother), and his mother (original) in minimum green for the parade. Poor showing to wear so little green.

We showed him some SAV love. In fact, it appears that in every image of Pence walking in the parade, there is a protest sign or a gay pride flag.

Photos from Savannah Connect FB.

One of the great things about Savannah is its artists. One of them, who goes by Panhandle Slim, makes great folk-art style signs for general consumption and special events like protesting Pence. He does a wonderful job of reminding us that to be Southern is not synonymous with bigotry.

So what do we know about who likely voted for Drew Miller in the PA-18 election?


It looks like Lamb will win with a less than 1000 vote margin over Saccone.

The third-party candidate, Drew Miller (Libertarian) earned 1,351 votes.

I think its typical for Libertarians to take more from the right than the left.

Does anyone know of local polling results that could help us understand if Miller helped or hurt Lamb?
