And prepare for lots of queso (hopefully too much queso which, intriguingly, is always just enough queso). NY Times has fawning praise for Georgia State’s efforts to prevent students dropping out. Their description of my time there: “a poor-performing, big urban institution with low graduation rates and yawningly wide racial gaps” ayyyyy 🙁 ATL City Council: you want to build high rises with public funds? Include affordable housing. International progressive journalism heroine shows love to Creative Loafing calls it “very important”. 500 jobs could be cut in APS turnaround. ATL Fed Prez: Two rate hikes this year “certainly possible”; Brexit is bad. When Lockhart talks, the world listens. Delta could be developing new business model; no scheduled departure for 20 years. The block right across from Ponce City Market really needed a mixed-use condo/dining/retail development with a three-storey parking garage to differentiate itself from the mixed-use condo/dining/retail development with a two-storey parking garage right across the street. Tyler Kepner: No Place to Go But Up for Bravos “Newly Unearthed Version of Elie Wiesel’s Seminal Work Is a Scathing Indictment of God, Jewish World” Oh. Is that all.

Trump has beautiful, wonderful, smart friends everywhere. May 4, 2016 8:01 AM Log in to Reply blakeage80 My loyalty to the Republican party and trust in its candidates has waned ever since I registered at 21 and started paying attention. As of today, consider me a political refugee. I wonder how long it would take for a 3rd party to rise to legitimacy and force a coalition government in America?

Need to find some replacement for it though otherwise we lose our counter culture venues to Cobb county …jk May 4, 2016 8:30 AM Log in to Reply gcp Cruz gave a good speech last night because he didn’t mention the yellow haired reality tv star. On the other side, with Rubio out of the picture Hilly is free to pick either Evan Bayh or Tim Kaine as VP. The most useless comment of the day (or night) was from Sarah Palin (aka the wizard of Wasilla) calling for “party unity.” May 4, 2016 8:42 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 So, it’s Trump!

May 4, 2016 9:09 AM Log in to Reply TheManUndertheBridge There are few more downcast with The Donald’s Indiana clean sweep than GAPOL’s very own Will Kremer: Hat Tip AJC/Greg Bluestein, who captioned Will’s heartfelt sentiment below. “Will Kremer, a former chair of the Georgia College Republicans, said he’ll vote for down-ticket GOP candidates in November, but that he’s wrestling over whether to leave the presidential ballot blank or vote for a third-party candidate. “Party loyalty has its limits,” he said. “Trump is the standard-bearer of the party and its spokesman. But what that tells me is the Republican Party has left me.” Will, I am not sure what part of the Party left you, could it be the part that: 1.) Puts guns before common sense? 2.) Will never let go of the utterly intractable abortion ‘debate’? 3.) Values driving the wage of the American worker to to its’ lowest global level, 4.) Believes that a Corporation has a vote, 5.) Denied us better healthcare options when we controlled all three branches of government. My Party left me a very long time ago, Will. And I know that in my heart of hearts I will STILL vote GOP instead of even thinking about Madame Secretary. BTW, we don’t need the greater inefficiency of plurality in our government, witness the UK. We will all see an epoch of events that will make the Great Depression seem like the good old days. It is a numerical reality, unless we are able to handle the most pressing issues on National importance. Trade, deficits, spending, jobs, are the necessities at hand. I am proud of our Governor, he has risen to the challenges put before him. Thank you Governor Deal for your Wisdom, Moderation and sense of Justice in light of the divisive legislation thrust upon your Office. Will, “Everything will be OK.” http://spruillgallery.blogspot.com/p/everything-will-be-ok.html May 4, 2016 9:40 AM Log in to Reply chefdavid But you can Campus carry a stun gun.
