High court upholds Savannah death sentences

ATLANTA - The Georgia Supreme Court has upheld death sentences for Darryl Scott Stinski, who was convicted of killing a woman and her 13-year-old daughter in 2002.

DoD allowing some access to social media

WASHINGTON, March 2, 2010 - The new policy allowing access to social media from computers connected to the Defense Department's unclassified network balances the mission value of Web 2.0 tools and the need for security, a top defense official said.

Since being hired as principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for public affairs in June, Price B. Floyd has made waves as the Pentagon's "social media czar," promoting the use of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social networking tools to spread the department's message.

Shake it off, walk out on top

Once, a simple little song was written and it told the story of how a goat got caught in a well. After many failed attempts to rescue the animal, a decision was made to just bury the old goat in the well and count it as a loss. However, the more dirt the farmer threw in the well, the more the old goat would just shake it off and pack it under its feet. Eventually, the goat climbed out.

Want parents in charge of education? Then let government rate them

I am up to my gizzard with our governor and Legislature and assorted bureaucrats stomping around in public education with little regard for the consequences of their actions. Example: One school system in the state has been considering allowing the police to bring Tasers into the schools to quell unruly students.
