Share this:TwitterFacebookTumblrRedditEmailPrint Related About Author edatlanta 9 Comments Penguin The Daily Report article on the dearth of lawyers in the GA General Assembly fails to point out the hostility towards them there. Lawyers are always getting in the way of “good ideas” with all their silly concerns about constitutionality, clarity, and consistency. It’s so much easier without those concerns. April 13, 2016 9:04 AM Log in to Reply Penguin It would be a great campaign in November if there were signs at every decrepit sidewalk that is non-ADA compliant (and a danger to my ankles) that said “vote to fix me!” Also, they need to use those pennies to enforce penalties against construction zones that just close sidewalks of busy roads with no warning or accommodation to people who get stranded walking. #itpproblems April 13, 2016 9:08 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Latest War on Women?? Springsteen the latest to punish NC. Let’s give up the privacy of 5,000,000 NC girls and women so that Bruce Jenner use the ladies room. Sounds like progress to me!

Got a solution for everyone, easy, if you can use a urinal, use the men’s room. April 13, 2016 5:55 PM Log in to Reply Will Durant I dunno’. In my younger days I’ve been in a place or two that if a pointer dressed as a setter stepped up to the urinal next to most of the pointers in attendance then the jukebox may as well have been playing Merle’s Fighting Side of Me.

No problem as long as they did not giggle. April 13, 2016 7:24 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn What do you have against design charrettes? It’s not like Harvard was alone in this. Georgia Tech had a team in the finals. I know of 6 other urban design and architecture programs that had teams that submitted designs who did not make the final cut. It’s not like it will ever be built. It’s National Architecture Week (which is always the week of Thomas Jefferson’s Birthday), which is when most college level contests and design charrettes are normally concluded or announced.

Most lawyers are somewhat north of that figure. OTOH look at the business one can generate drafting half-assed legislation that is intended to generate more court cases a la RFRA.
