Just found out that the taxpayers of Gwinnett County pay the School Superintendant over a half million dollars a year in salary. What on earth could a school superintendent do in his job to warrant that kind of salary? No wonder the school tax section of my property taxes are astronomical.

So you’re telling me that I am underwriting your kid’s education because you don’t want the ‘lil darlin’ rubbing elbows with the hoi polloi? To the tune of $2800 per year? I know it’s legal, but it seems like a scam

Texas went to the Federal Government to get funds to buy homes of people in the floodplains in Austin. I guess they could ask the Feds to pay everybody who bought a house in areas that wind up in the floodplain as weather changes.

Okay, so commuters are aggravated about the new interchange on Jimmy Carter and 85? It’s when they close a lane down and the morons who decide to block the intersection when the light turns red so the others can’t cross with the light!!! I’ve sat through 3 lights just to get across Jimmy Carter!!! Where are the cops when you ACTUALLY need them????

I have the same issues with the online AJC as you do. To top it off, when the “front page” settles down, it is only trivial stuff like someone’s private quarters and entertainment gossip. That is not news!

” The Repub. Insurance will be priced for what you and your family need.” … And the Republicans decide what you need. Seems like we had that already, and it didn’t work. You had your chance to fix it for 8 years and did nothing. Quit your bellyaching.

The Mayor and Governor of Louisiana during Katrina sat on their hands and did little to nothing to evacuate those folks who lost their lives. Many buses were available to get them out, but the Mayor (who later was convicted of accepting bribes) did NOTHING to utilize them. It’s hard for the Feds to help when the locals are derelict in their duties.

The public and the media “forget” about Pres. Bush offering aid to LA before the hurricane, just like they forget Pres. Obama tried to negotiate our troops staying longer in Iraq but Iraq refused to indemnify our troops if they were charged with their definition of a crime in Iraq.

Headline: “Economists Got It Wrong”; well surprise, surprise, when do economists get it right? Don’t they know that some people can look at a temporary decrease in gas prices and realize it is “temporary” and save the savings instead of going wild with spending?

I loved the two vents side by side – one complaining that GDOT is building roads fast now that the gas tax has increased and the other complaining about GDOT not building roads when they had no money. Perhaps they were hoping that money would rain from the sky.

It took 45 minutes to get from drop off to the gate at ATL Hartsfield – Jackson. It took me 2 hours from drop off to gate at Chicago O’hara. I’m glad we move slow in the South. Thank you Hartfield – Jackson
