Holy crap. Alcoholism is alive in well in Athens, GA. PBRs, Jamesons, Chipmunks (easy there Bo. Chipmunks are for drinkin' not for lovin').... more alcoholic concoctions than you can shake a stick at.

But what a collection of funny, crazy M-Fers this town holds. Really a bunch of great, great folk... except for the douchebaaaagggg makin' a play for my secret (meaning she don't know) bartender girlfriend last night. Don't he know that I'm from San Francisco?

Woman being 'silly' hit by freight train:
"MARYSVILLE, Calif. - A 54-year-old woman was recovering in the hospital after being hit by a Union Pacific freight train south of Marysville.
