Good morning! The Iowa Caucuses are over, and it’s Groundhog Day. Watch out for that first step – it’s a doozy!
- Amtrak’s Sunset Limited returns to south Georgia for the first time since Katrina – but only for one day, and only for VIPs.
- HB 865 – the Building Educational Success Together Act, or “The BEST Act,” drives disagreement among Georgia’s Student Scholarship Organizations (SSOs).
- Conflict in Clayton! Graduation day – May 24 – is also Primary day, resulting in accusations of voter suppression (rather then exhortations to utilize Early Voting).
- Georgia lawmakers consider consumer protection bills.
- The Economist explains the primary and caucus system: it’s about delegates, not votes.
- Zombie bees – “ZomBees” – exist. Georgia’s not infected… yet.
- Citylab makes the case against historic preservation districts.
- Should the results in Iowa matter?
- It turns out that a small painting stored at a museum in Kansas City, MO, is actually a Bosch. What tipped them off – was it the fish with feet or the lil’ floating sausage?
- This week in Hamilton: today at 10 AM, the next block of Hamilton tickets will be released for sale. These tickets are for shows between November, 2016 and January, 2017, so if you want to see Hamilton on Broadway over the holiday break, do not throw away your shot!
- Or, if you are willing to wait for it, it was announced yesterday that Hamilton will come to Atlanta – this is not a drill – for the 2017-2018 Broadway in Atlanta series.
