Barely. “Gas Station Women” by Phil Ochs. Kasim Reed says the Sanders “foolishness” won’t fly in GA. Left-leaning economists also not feeling the Bern. Could CNN be leaving Atlanta? Or is Robin Meade’s 100k commode the bigger story? Atlanta “doesn’t get” historic preservation. Buckhead zip code ATL’s most educated, Pine Log the least educated. Could it be David Nahmias who is the strong Georgian to replace Antonin Scalia? 250k settlement from Georgia in transgender inmate hormone therapy lawsuit. New York Times shows Atlanta’s dining scene some serious love. Share this:TwitterFacebookTumblrRedditEmailPrint Related About Author edatlanta 14 Comments Calypso Ed, unless I’m reading something wrong, the table shows Talmo the least educated at 21.48% with “at least college education”. Pine Log is shown as the best of the worst at 36.79%. I imagine the folks in Pine Log (at least the literate ones) are up in arms over your slight to them. Full Disclosure: I live in neither Talmo nor Pine Log. February 17, 2016 6:39 AM Log in to Reply Saltycracker Got curious too – the city of Talmo is the crown jewel of Jackson Co. with population of 187 or so, 1.7 sq.mi. , and a city staff. The lead story on the city website is concerning two lost goats. It is a micropolitan statistical area. Will Hillary make a stop there and promise to look into federal funding for college for city residents and appoint several of her staff to get the goats home ?

Hard to argue the steady hand with foreign policy when Bush got us into Iraq, and Obama/ Hillary got us into Libya, and both strategies of promoting democracy in Middle East has been a disaster. This is why the establishment foreign policy position from Bush/Hillary/Rubio attacks at Trump are not working. Also all sides have totally avoided any real plan on entitlments, so yelling at Trump for his plan only helps him. Same with healthcare, trade…..if they want to stop Trump come up with solutions or the train will keep rolling…..just my 2 cents February 17, 2016 7:38 AM Log in to Reply Sally Forth Speaking of the Trumpster, he’s going to be in ATL this coming Sunday. A friend just sent me the info: https://trumpatlanta.eventbrite.com February 17, 2016 7:34 PM Log in to Reply gcp Reed talks about Burnie’s foolishness? Burnie’s ideas are ridiculous but Reed is the guy that gave us the foolish 98 million dollar streetcar to nowhere and a foolish 50% raise to city council. February 17, 2016 9:12 AM Log in to Reply Calypso I heard it was either give the council a 50% raise or let them ring the streetcar bell every morning. February 17, 2016 9:25 AM Log in to Reply gcp I heard that when Burnie asked for directions to Morehouse last night, Reed told him to take the streetcar. February 17, 2016 9:32 AM Log in to Reply edatlanta Well the streetcar got federal money that was either going to go to us or some other city and streetcars are found to increase development and show an area is improving. But the actual streetcar qua transport system is embarrassing. February 17, 2016 9:49 AM Log in to Reply gcp Approximately 31 million local money and the rest federal dollars and ridership is down after the dollar fee was added.

February 17, 2016 10:19 AM Log in to Reply John Konop ………8.250k settlement from Georgia in transgender inmate hormone therapy lawsuit. ……… Beyond this being outrageous, as a country we cannot afford to pay for elective procedures like this for Medicare, Medicaid, government workers…..You have the good given right to take Viagra, use a scooter when you can walk, transgender hormone theory…. just not on tax payers dime.
