Freaknik canceled. These debates should be entertaining. Bubba stops by Manuel’s. See, sunshine is a great disinfectant. Emory. Marta. Atlanta. Buh-bye DeKalb? This! Gloom, despair, and agony on me. Violence continues. Words escape me… Today’s YUGE news. Punishing innovation. Or something. Uber for planes? Nope. Oh, goody, goody, goody! “The IT Crowd.” For realz.

In fact, he is a low level drug dealer whose main promotional draw is young men in white tees and dreds. (this is the standard go-to dress for street level dealers). He frequently clamps on to other people’s parties, and does bring folk, but they are always hard street folk, not college kids from Moorhouse. He just thought it would be cute to steal the name. I made a call to my friend at the Atrium. The rest, as you see, is history. Not that I had anything to do with the cancellation, mind you!

I have great admiration for those that care for their communities by challenging the self-serving and sadness for the scars it takes on those of lessening numbers.

Southern Co. should buy unfinished Bellefonte Nuclear Plant……..Instead of spending $99 million studying the suitability of a new nuclear plant site in southwest Georgia they could probably get the Bellefonte site for $40 million. http://www.al.com/opinion/index.ssf/2016/08/more_nuclear_needed_to_reach_c.html August 26, 2016 9:42 AM Log in to Reply gcp “Gloom, despair, and agony on me” Took a while for me to recall that show. Emory as part of Atlanta should be quite interesting because currently Emory does not touch Atlanta. Either Emory buys property to connect it to Atlanta or they get other communities that border Atlanta and Emory to join the annexation. August 26, 2016 10:07 AM Log in to Reply Sally Forth Hillary is now saying that the right’s “radical fringe” has taken over the Republican Party. Funny accusation, since she has seen the left’s radical fringe take over the Democratic Party several years ago. Ergo, political decisions are now being made by the radical fringe of both parties. Voices of moderation have been drowned out. No wonder the general public is sick of it and looking for someone new to politics. That could just be the trump card this year.

Clinton and Kaine are left-of-center Democrats. They are (a pair of) the voices of moderation in the Democratic Party. If the radical fringe of the party was making decisions, Sanders would be the nominee. August 28, 2016 6:23 PM Log in to Reply Sally Forth Yep, too far left of center Dems for moderate voters. The primary caused Hillary to move farther to the left in response to folks feeling the Bern. Her political positions are not the same as they used to be; a look at the platform on which she’s running makes that clear. And I can’t figure out how Kaine rationalizes all that. Political ambition does strange things to people. August 28, 2016 7:31 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus Hillary as the radical fringe would remove the cause of existence of the radical fringe. August 28, 2016 6:23 PM Log in to Reply CoastalCat Never associated moderation with Trump. How do you figure that? August 28, 2016 4:41 PM Log in to Reply Sally Forth I didn’t figure that — I’m just sayin’…. Some of the people who support the Trumpster may be doing so because they are looking for someone new instead of the same old political machine of both the far-left and the far-right. August 28, 2016 7:17 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Supporting Trump because he’s “someone new” is like shooting yourself in the face to treat a headache because the bullet represented a different approach from the same-old Advil.
