“Bash the Fash” by Oi Polloi.

  1. Stacey Abrams: You know what is a totally practical idea that is in no way grandstanding? Removing the Stone Mountain carvings. 
  2. Decatur (the real one) wants in on that action, too!

  6. Walton County sheriff doesn’t seem like the best guy in the world. 
  7. 1600 jobs headed to Union City.
