    And pigs fly, too.  You forgot that part.

    Moe has never had an assistant, a driver, two female "visitors" who grab unpaid food deliveries and start wolfing them down without saying grace first, 4 stars, a scenic sign that says "Moe's Road" on it, a debit card that has been rejected anywhere for any reason, disappearing large amounts of cash in my own home nor a delivery man named Ryan.  I have never had handcuffs on (well, not real ones...maybe), never been ordered to have alcohol counseling by anyone, much less a judge, and certainly never been in jail from Sat. night to Monday.  I have never kicked a police officer. Finally, mug shots are not on my resume, either.  Guess you are right.  So, your point is??

    Nole?  Pray tell, explain nole to us, will you? 
     
    Funny, the PD seem to feel it wasn't  "just a delivery of Chinese food".   Surely you are not suggesting a top secret CIA maneuver by the PD days in advance to create this scenario.  Now that would be a conspiracy extraordinaire.  If it were the case, which it is not.  
     
    I don't have the pleasure of knowing Cal, but I would gander that a newspaperman of his years and caliber would put livid right in the hopper with the rest of the extreme emotions for now and instead spend his time attempting to report the actual facts of what occurred in that home so his readers can use their (our) grey matter to draw conclusions that are based on the truth of what happened.  Doing that in a way that increases readers which in turn provides more money for his business, staff, and his family. 
     
    Sympathy, empathy, pity, and either support or help (both, my guess) will come when we learn the facts of how this became such an unusual story that is so compelling at the moment.  Not to mention tragic, too.

    The US spends less on social benefits than almost every other developed country.
    The typical American college student graduates wit $10-30,000 in student loan debt.  That doesn't happen in western Europe where a university education is supported by the governments because they know it strengthens their society.
    Americans still have to worry about being bankrupted by health care expenditures. Not so in western Europe or Canada, or Australia, or New Zealand, or Israel, or.....
    Worrying about retirement is alsonot much of a concern in most other developed countries.
    The Nordic countries have the world's most advanced social democracies.  They also have longer average lifespans and surveys show their citizens are less stressed and enjoy more overall contentment.
    The US is really an outlier among countries at our level of economic development, but a different way is possible and, as evidenced by Bernie Sander's poll numbers, more people are starting to wake up and see it.

    Do you think she was texting?
    I reviewed the video frame-by-frame and couldn't really tell.  I do know there are three-sets of lane wide rumble strips before you get to the stop sign on Goza.  I'm curious why that did not get her attention.  Perhaps she was impaired.  
     
    Anyways, I'll bring the video to our next coffee klatch.  You are invited.

    I hope the new Chief's version of Community Policing is not policing the community to death with minor traffic violatons while home invasions are going on two blocks over.

    Would we be reading about this if Moe, or anyone else had an altercation with a delivery man.  It certainly wouldn't be front page news with mug shots.

    Moe, no need to explore grassy nole theories on this, it's just a delivery of Chinese food gone bad .Wow!  I'm amazed you can be charged for telling the Citizen your own side of the story on the matter when it contradicts Fayetteville PD's version.  Cal should be livid about that.

    Termites and motorcycle accidents. It's not if but when they happen, and like you say a minor accident for an auto is a major accident for a bike.

    Mr. Bedgood was at the restaurant to pay the bill, perhaps Mr. Irvin approaced him to initate a conversation. Mr. Irvin then said that he did not want to press charges, this change was not  condusive to prosecuting General Ivsey and the  photos provided of General Ivsey's injuries did not look minor to me. 
    Insist on fair treatment of your fellow citizens, you may be next.

    Not So Good In Bed Guy....wow, the plot thickens...now we're getting somewhere. Good work Cal Beverly and Fayetteville PD....  Now, about those female "guests".... 
     
    Oh, and this from an arrest log in Newnan,  Timothy Allen Bedgood, 41, VOP.  Dated Feb. 2012.  I assume VOP means violation of probation but not sure 'bout that. 
     
    Oh, again, from The Citizen PTC PD arrest reports, Dec. 2010.....Timothy Bedgood, 39, Cornwallace Way, Fayetteville, for suspended license, no insurance and resisting an officer.  Not good, not good at all.

    regarding this comment:
    The Tyrone mayor has been trying to get the council to hire a part-time code enforcement officer. After reading the minutes of the last council meeting, I can only surmise the reason a part-time code enforcement officer is not hired is because Mayor pro tem Furr stated, “In these economic times, we ought not to be too hard on the towns’ businesses.” As a taxpayer of Tyrone, I expect the council members including Mayor pro tem Furr to enforce the town ordinances in good and bad economic times. To do otherwise is a violation of her oath of office and she and any other council member that refuses to enforce the town ordinances should be removed from office.
    You couldnt be more correct is your reasoning. I have repeatedly reported an infraction of the law here in Tyrone and the response I get is, "the homeowner doesn't agree with the law."
    Now tell me, does that make the law unenforceable? In Tyrone it does. Say what you will, we are all required to obey the laws that are on the books or change them! It is time to clean up the town and enforce the laws on the books.
    I will do my best to change every council member seated at the next elections. Time for a change in Tyrone as well as the United States.

    for a rezone 2 lots east of Frank's at the Old Mill (between Old Mill Ct. and Lakeview) on 54 in Fayetteville.  Another Hotel Patel Production.  Three and and a half miles from the other one?  Can't have enough Patels and Holiday Inn Expresses.  And how will that affect the Four Seasons planned for Pineywood?  Or is that a Ritz? I always confuse the two of them. Fayetteville had discussion last week and  this land is in county?  Annexation coming to get sewer for this?  To go from medical office zoning to commercial.  Yep, we need more commercial along there.  Sure, go for it Fayetteville.

    When the thugs or the clueless like the Suburban "Lady" are caught on video and shown to the sane and sober folks on their jury, maybe the silly and immature and irresponsible behavior will be diminished.        Do you think she was texting?   I know that's how the next seven people will be killed around here -- by a clueless teen or tennis Mom or illegal immigrant texting while driving and then T-boning someone. Put your stupid I-phone away you silly little people. You are not that important. 
    Hope it doesn't happen, but if it does, then we can just arrest them for the crimes they commit and change their behavior by a year or two in prision.                  
    Saw 2 today - meaning teens, just yuking it up while texting and driving without the speed governor on and swerving all over. Got one cart number and will get the other one tomorrow when she goes to school. Yes, will publish. No qualms about that at all. They grow up (if you want to call it that) to be the Suburban Lady. Hey, let's trace her tag and roust her to court.
