Lewis Grizzard, SEC Football, Georgia football, The DAWGS, Death Valley, Clemson:  I am not a rabid anything fan (maybe Davidson basketball 🙂 But after reading the old Lewis Grizzard column and seeing some of the GIFs on the internet, I was a little excited for Saturday, but woe to be a DAWG fan.   Death Valley got the best of the Bulldogs.

Great reprint!

Saturday in Athens was a religious experience.

Clemson, we’re coming for YOU in 4 days!

CLEMSON, S.C. — ABC and Clemson got what they wanted. Georgia clearly did not.

The No. 5-ranked Bulldogs played their part in the offensive showdown that everybody predicted. But Georgia lost two offensive starters for much of the game, briefly forgot how to protect both the passer and the football and the No. 8 Tigers roared past for a 38-35 victory.

The 73 most points were the most scored in the 73-game series that began in 1897, and it was the Tigers’ first win in their past five games against Georgia. Their fans rushed the field after the game.

8.29.13 … Just thinking … US redrawn as 50 states with equal population … immigration middle ground … Go DAWGs, do it for Lewis … Grand Opening Romare Bearden Park …

science,  moral behavior, Scientific American:  Just thinking …

They hypothesized that there is a deep-seated perception of science as a moral pursuit — its emphasis on truth-seeking, impartiality and rationality privileges collective well-being above all else. Their new study, published in the journal PLOSOne, argues that the association between science and morality is so ingrained that merely thinking about it can trigger more moral behavior.

The researchers conducted four separate studies to test this. The first sought to establish a simple correlation between the degree to which individuals believed in science and their likelihood of enforcing moral norms when presented with a hypothetical violation. Participants read a vignette of a date-rape and were asked to rate the “wrongness” of the offense before answering a questionnaire measuring their belief in science. Indeed, those reporting greater belief in science condemned the act more harshly.

equal representation, population: Interesting to think about …  Still trying to figure out the why of  the states’ names.  🙂

immigration, middle ground, NYTimes.com:  Very hard for either party to find a middle ground.

Mr. Pearce says he wants to fix what he calls a broken immigration system, and he sees himself as a border-state pragmatist.

“One side says everybody just gets citizenship, the other side says deport them or put them in jail, whatever. And I’m saying there is another alternative that would allow families to stay together, that would allow people to work, that just would not make them citizens,” Mr. Pearce said on Wednesday night in a response to a question at a town hall-style meeting in Deming. “Because that makes me very nervous as a policy.”

Later in the evening, he added: “I think that the plan I’m suggesting is the compromise plan. It’s somewhere out between kick them out and give them full citizenship.”

Mr. Pearce’s proposal would create a guest worker program, which would allow illegal immigrants to stay in the country as long as they were working. But it would not provide citizenship to those workers over time. He would allow illegal immigrants to become citizens, but they would first have to return to their home country and wait in line there.

“You can’t get control of the borders if you tell people you can come here illegally and you can work until you work your way to the front of the line,” Mr. Pearce said in an interview on Thursday. “The whole world would want to do it that way. Who would want to wait and do it properly?”

Despite Mr. Pearce’s strong opposition to a path to citizenship, advocates of an overhaul still believe that he might be persuadable, and various groups have descended on his district over the August break, holding marches and protests and filling his public meetings. “They simply realize that this is a 34 percent Republican district, and they’re hoping to bring enough pressure that would change me,” he said.
