Good morning! I have a lot of experience compiling Morning Reads!
I knew those Morning Reads. I served with those Morning Reads. Those Morning Reads were a friend of mine. You, sir, are not those Morning Reads.
- The NYT published a profile of Tiffany Trump, and while she did not offer any quotes, her mom, Georgia’s own Marla Maples, sure did – and they are a glorious master class in passive-aggression.
- NPR brought us a fascinating interview with Michael Twitty, the food historian at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello who blogs about being black, Jewish, and gay.
- The Urban Land Institute named Midtown Atlanta as one of the Great Places in America.
- August was a record month for Georgia’s ports.
- A computer glitch removed more than 200 Georgians from the state’s voter rolls. Don’t worry – they’re back!
- And anyway those electronic voting machines are “crappy, buggy, and obsolete.”
- The latest trajectory for Hurricane Matthew.
- The Trump Foundation was ordered to stop fundraising immediately.
- One incoming Missouri legislator accused another of raping her.
- It’s a good year for Georgia’s olive harvest.
- Clown sightings come in phases, no worries. They’re like cicadas, or shark attacks.
- “Ain’t I a woman? Who knits?” (Yes, I know Sojourner Truth never said that last part.)
- AND PEGGY!
