Open Thread.

It’s a slow news day so I’ll start an open thread.  Here are two topics for your consideration and comment:

1) Were the political attacks on President Bush by Jimmy Carter and Rev. Lowery at Coretta Scott King’s funeral appropriate?

2) How’s the trial of former ATL Mayor Bill Campbell trial going?  Is he guilty, or, more accurately, will he be convicted?

    (1) I wouldn’t call them “political attacks” but I thought that Lowery and Carter’s comments were appropriate. Why is it not fair game to point out Ms. King’s beliefs at her funeral. She opposed everything that Bush stands for.

    (2) He should and will be convicted.

    1) I forgot about the whole “speak truth to power” thing. 🙂

    1) I hope Campbell is convicted quickly so the US Attorney can devote his time to nailing Linda Schrenko.

    1) No. Carter was one of the most failed presidents in history, and is an embarrassment to this state. I cringe when he speaks in public. One note to Decaturguy – Carter wasn’t just explaining King’s politics – he was using her to show a completely unrelated point – a political point, which had no place in that event at all.

    2) Cambell is a joke. The only thing more obvious than his guilt is OJ’s guilt! Still, as we learned in OJ’s case, that doesn’t mean he will be convicted.

    My thoughts about Jimmah Carta?

    Get his statue off the capitol grounds and put it at the Carta Center or in the junk pile. Anywhere is better than in front of the building representing the people of Georgia.

    I gotta be more careful in my use of analogies.

    We know Schrenko used federal money for a facelift (allegedly of course), but we have no idea what our money did to other parts of her body.
