Morning Reads for Almost Opening Day (And Almost My Birthday)

Is it coincidence that two of the top five days in mankind’s history (MLB Opening Day and my birthday) are so close? Probably not. #IntelligentDesign

“Big Dipper” by Built to Spill

One of These is the Most Pressing Issue in the World Today. You Decide Which.

  1. GSU eyes conference title, continued growth. 
  2. Sam Nunn offers key to prevent ISIS from getting a nuclear bomb. (Hint: get rid of nuclear material lying around). 
  3. Long commutes are literally killing you and other Georgians. 
  4. What can “Candide” teach us about gardening? 

Maybe Less Important, Maybe Not. 

  1. Koch Brothers want to destroy Yallywood. 
  2. John Lewis to be keynote speaker at Poynter Center centennial celebrations. 
  3. Obama’s presentation in Atlanta on Tuesday. 
  4. Dennis Lockhart, the best Fed Prez in the world, says economy is strong enough to justify raising short-term interest rates. 
  5. The tragic Georgia connection to the Brussels attack.

75-87. Better but not good enough to contend in their first year in Cobb.

Prayers to the young lady who lost her boyfriend to those radical animals. This is a crusade against the West. How should we respond?

Is this really a battery charge? Looks like a reporter grabbed Trump at a large event, and someone walked in front of her with a lot going on…Do we have any lawyers who could explain how this is illegal?

Not even close. Politically motivated charge that will be dropped at the first hearing if judge has an ounce of credibility.

Amazing how much coverage this BS deal gets while the dem frontrunner and her minions are facing federal felony indictments. It was announced that at least 22 emails in the private server world of Hillary contained ‘highly sensitive’ material. Yet we are left to believe the most serious thing facing a presidential candidate is whether his manager touched a reporter during a press scrum. Backasswards world in which we reside.

It was also reported that 157 ‘special’ agents were working on the case until…ooops the story had to be retracted because it was false. Their source lied. Guess they need to vet their “sources” to make sure they are not trying to promote a meme, right?

I think the story is more why the Trump campaign lied and said he never touched her when in fact the video shows thats not true. Battery seems a stretch. The lie is concrete. Then again, Trump lies so much its just one to throw on the heap (if you can even see the top of that heap anymore)

Scott,

Lie is a strong words…….It is fairly clear he saw someone grapping the candidate, and got between them in a chaotic situation. Does not look like he even saw the person. With that said he should of just apologized for doing his job in a chaotic situation. What I find most disturbing is we have a court system with real victims overwhelmed with cases. Last thing we need is a case like this in the system at tax payers expense. Not only is it a waste of money, cases like this insult and create backlog for victims needing real justice.

Good news: avoiding the national political mess I turned to reading my email answers from a couple hopeful local candidates in offices needing a new face.
The good news is the iPad mini is ok after throwing it on the floor.

As you may know, last week the SCOTUS heard oral arguments in 7 cases (consolidated) dealing with the HHS mandate regarding contraception coverage and non-profits wishing to neither provide coverage for certain methods nor be “complicit” in their employees’ obtaining coverage from their contracted insurer by notifying HHS of their refusal to provide that coverage. In an interesting twist, SCOTUS yesterday issued an order requesting from lawyers representing all the parties in these cases ideas for how the coverage can be extended by the plaintiffs’ insurance providers WITHOUT any action by the plaintiffs having to occur to make it happen.… Read more »

Judge Rules In Favor Of Erlanger On Production Of Documents In Lawsuit With Hospital Authority Of Dade, Walker, Catoosa. Looks like you boys meetings should have been more open and transparent. I think everyone appointed to a board or committee subject to the open meetings and records requirements should at least have to take an online class. Does anybody know how to pull up the answer and the judges order? I tried to on pacer but couldn’t find it. Maybe Nathan or somebody can write an article on this and include the court docs. Didn’t Hospital authority of Valdosta and… Read more »
