One of the most gifted bloggers in this town is also one of the best political reporters. Doug Richards is now with WXIA/Channel 11 in Atlanta, but for a few years now has written a blog about Atlanta TV media called Live Apartment Fire.
Probably the best thing you’ll read this morning is his most recent entry called Jonestown, in which he chronicles a decade of covering our good friend Snuggles, a/k/a former DeKalb CEO, 4th District Congressional Candidate, and man convicted of race discrimination Vernon Jones.
I highly recommend spending a few moments going through it, because it captures a history of Jones; one man’s up close and personal insight into a man with a, well, quirky personality.
“Jonestown” is a special place in the political world, and is a gift that keeps on giving. Give Richards’ piece a read and you’ll understand why it’s a place where you may not want to be drinking the Kool-aid.
