“Capitalism should not be condemned, since we haven’t had capitalism.” – Ron Paul
Here in Georgia…
- Atlanta Public Schools received some good news yesterday as SACS took the system off probation.
- Four of America’s most broke cities are in Georgia.
- Kyle Wingfield offers his two cents on Herman Cain’s bad week.
- Occupy Atlanta will be back at Woodruff Park this weekend. In other news, I’ll probably never watch V for Vendetta again after all of the “remember, remember the 5th of November” references I read on their website yesterday.
- Atlanta police will be using a mobile tower to watchtower to “deter” crime. This is going to have the same effect as cameras. It’ll shift crime to other areas, not stop it.
National stories of interest…
- The high-speed rail project in California has seen costs triple, from $43 billion to $100 billion, and the completion date pushed back to 2033. Are politicians in Georgia paying attention?

- Obama Republicans(!) are going back to the GOP fold for 2012.
- Maybe putting Hillary Clinton on the Democratic ticket isn’t such a bad idea.
- Shikha Dalmia debunks the myth of growing income inequality.
A few that I like…

- Economists explain the NBA lockout.
