Re: “The true force of a boxer's punch

Kevin Franklin has no clue what he's talking about. Learn some physics. "Force is subjective"??? what a funny joke I would laugh if it weren't for the fact that he was saying it seriously. Yes, force does depend on the hardness, and can be measured, making it objective. No one says "oh it felt like 3 newtons of force so I'ma say it was 3 newtons" lmfao.

It IS much more accurate to measure brain damage in G's (acceleration) rather than newtons. Because peoples' heads come in all sizes! The G's measures how fast the skull actually accelerated and it's closer to the thing you REALLY want: The force that the brain hit the skull, not the force that the skull was hit.

"Penetrative nature" is absolute BS unless you're actually measuring organ damage or something. Brain damage doesn't come from people "penetrating" into the skull. It comes from accelerating the skull.

Re: “Westside Arena: a 50-year mistake?

There is so much wrong here. Its not location, access or crime. What's wrong is the same old Savannah attitudes that have shattered lives since 1750 when Ga Trustees deemed the Institution of slavery legal in GA. There is a basic problem to view this Arena issue centric to "downtown or tourist". Westside citizens voted for it and will not benefit from the development because of City leaders, who also possess bias preconceived notions. Corrupt politicians and bias city staff is railroading the benefits of Westside residents. Politicians and developers will benefit because the Arena Committee members who represent disenfranchised Westside residents were pushed away from the table. The committee was disbanded and all plans changed afterwards. Black, white, yellow and brown citizens alike, will all benefit by ensuring that citizens needs are democratically highlighted over the interests of developers and politicians. When a Community Benefits Strategy is employed, everyone wins. Now, who would be against that?

Re: “Appraising the appraisal process

I like that you are critical of land valuations that happened in your area. When an appraisal happens it is important for the appraiser to investigate, analyze, and verify the logic and procedures of an appraisal. If you are curious to learn more about the appraisal process check out this piece --> []. Thanks for sharing.

Re: “Westside Arena: A critical look at access

This is just another sop to those living west of downtown...and as usual, at the expense of taxpayers elsewhere. Bread and circuses just like failing Rome. History repeats and p anders to the clueless.

White noise. Only an utter fool would dare to walk in that area at night or park a car there. This is an even bigger boondoggle than looking for some sucker

Re: “Grow it again!

Thank you for this great column. You expressed something I had been feeling but had not coalesced in thought. Your words took me back to my adolescence and how the world opened up at 15 due to my older brother and his opening eyes and as his hair grew it upset the entire house. The anger of my dad and the obstinince of my brother was hard but so worth it as we stepped into a new sense of responsibility for the actions of our country and the world. I have noticed myself dressing more like my younger self. Buying hippie purses and listening to the music I cut my teeth on- Jefferson Airplane and rereading what my brother told me to read man and his symbols Jung. New hiking boots and a backpack for work instead of a purse...thank you. I will also say in our late 20s as my brother andI went out to dinner with my parents, before walking into th Driving Club in Atlanta my brother commented he needed a hair cut, my dad said oh youre fine the four of us stopped and looked at one another and burst into tears. Connection is the antidote to fear. God Bless America and help us out of this awful mess we are in..AGAIN! Thank you so much. You brought my energy back to realizing why I always return to my hippie roots. Not my word but what STILL is how some define me but now they say OLD hippie. Lol At 63, I rebell against that as well. Too much work to do and fun to be had. Thanks again!!

Re: “The weaponization of jaywalking

The affordable private automobile was one of the greatest single contributors to the rise of our economy for the last 100+ years by providing mobility and travel freedom to almost everyone.

The car haters think the car is evil, most people find it to be wonderful.

Re: “Westside Arena: a 50-year mistake?

People still came from near and far to: ice skate, watch a Harlem Globetrotters game, monster truck smash ups and gun shows. It won't be any different when this arena is built. Disenfranchised? Yes residents who live in the area got shoved away from the table as decisions got made. Then the nerve of the First District alderman to tell his constituents, you all just focus on the arena, never mind the other stuff. Author says his writings aren't not meant "to deny the urgent need for an improved arena and reinvestment in Savannah's West Side". Sure could have fooled me.

Re: “40 Volume Salon

1. What they told me over the phone about services and prices was completely different than what happened in person. Be sure to get what they tell you in writing via email.
2. I was told an updo was $55-65 and usually took an hour. I was also told I could have my hair washed and dried if I wanted. When I arrived, the hairdresser said she did not have time to wash my hair, dry it, and do an updo because it takes an additional hour to wash and dry my hair. In reality, it would take a maximum of 30 minutes.
3. The beautician said she could not do my hair if I wanted it washed. I was at her mercy since I had to be ready at a certain time for a wedding and am visiting from out of town. When she did my updo, she pinned the back up in several sections. She did absolutely nothing to the front and top until I mentioned it. Then, she used a pick to lift it. It took her 35 minutes to do the updo. It was THE WORST hair experience I have ever had in over 40 years. I am certain my 15 year old would have done a better job.
4. When I went to the counter to pay, they charged me $75.00!!!!!! I tried to calmly dispute the charge but they would not budge and I did not have the time or energy to stand my ground as I needed to focus on the wedding of my best friends daughter.
The ONLY positive thing that happened at this place was getting a free glass of cheap wine.
I would HIGHLY recommend using another salon!

Re: “Editor's Note: Time for a mid-year review!

Who was affected by the violent crime rate to begin with and in whose community did the majority of them take place? The DeLoach administration ran on a law and order platform. Where are all these so-called increased partnerships? Savannah Impact Program (SIP) is ancient history. Perception of this city being a scary place to live drove the "Pro" more than anything else. Regarding Marijuana Reform, what are all the kudos for? Chatham County cops as well as other municipalities ride/cruise through the city of Savannah. Now they can make "drug busts" within city limits to make their arrest statistics look good. Unless the developers live here, they are never around to see what a mess they really made. The brouhaha over the fire fee shows that City government is anemic when it comes to initiatives. Public interaction with Savannah Fire & Emergency Services should have been taking place. Imagine that! Now tourists can really walk a country mile just to see "interpretive signage" on the Confederate Monument. Who is going to be providing these add-ons?

Re: “State targets homeless camps in West Savannah for removal

Re-open the old Brown Farm? Seriously? A work camp, how about a place where people can live camp? Affordable housing has become this county's and city's elusive butterfly. Neither government has gotten a grasp or grip on the situation. It is unlikely they ever will.

Re: “The weaponization of jaywalking

Agreed - great and timely article. No doubt distractions play a role in the increased number of incidents, but I think more concerning is an attitude among drivers that pedestrians and cyclists aren't people. I'm a driver, and I understand frustration when pedestrians quickly dart out in unexpected places (please don't do this!). However as a pedestrian, I've also noticed an uptick in drivers who seem to feel entitled to running you over even if you're legally in or near a crosswalk. New traffic patterns, signals, and bike lanes are great safety ideas for everyone. How do we address the culture that reckless driving towards pedestrians and cyclists is less important than cars vs cars? Where are the police issuing tickets for speeding around the squares or almost hitting pedestrians in crosswalks? Do we have stats comparing that to other traffic citations?

Re: “Westside Arena: a 50-year mistake?

The opening sentence "... a generally positive trend in Savannahs governance over the past several years.." is laughable...

Unless people actually think others who label EVERYTHING in Savannah (Bridges, Statues, etc) as Racist and backward and offensive....

Why not re-open the old Brown Farm, a good idea. A work camp. That would give these folks something to do and three squares per day.

Only an utter fool would go into that high crime district especially at night, and only a super-utter fool would leave a car parked there unattended for any length of time. Pound our property tax money down a rat-hole.
