Athens, Georgia -- the home of Bulldogs, bands, and beer.
We were rolling through Barrow County near midnight last Saturday on our way back to Athens from an evening of skateboarding at Duncan Creek Park when a motorcade of police vehicles -- cars, vans, a bus, more cars, more vans -- swished by us with blue lights blazing and sirens wailing. We've wondered since then what was up. Now we know. The county's inmates were getting a ride to their new jail.
