Morning Reads 3/30/2012

The Legislative Session is over. Now begins the season of complaining and campaigning. But some folks began complaining yesterday. Oh, and a couple of gentlemen exchanged a few heated words.

The legislature did manage to overhaul the criminal justice system. Including the creation of state-wide drug and mental health courts.

Governor Barnes and Speaker Richardson are a successful tag team, at least in the legal world. On Thursday, a Fulton County Judge ruled that the Dynamic Duo’s lawsuit against Georgia Power can proceed.

Meanwhile, Atlanta’s airport is still the busiest in the world. It’s a rough place – the seediest dive on the wharf. Populated with every reject and cutthroat from Bombay to Calcutta. It’s worse than Detroit.

Peach County breaks ground on the new Peach Medical Center. The new facility is an answer to the prayers of many in Peach County.

Do you love your pets? Then watch out for ticks. Expect a horde of them this summer.

And don’t let those folks from Florida win the big lottery with a ticket from Georgia.

Valdosta area education officials are evaluating and reevaluating how the City and County can share services and responsibilities.

Vidalia Onions receive a “fancy” menu logo. I recommend eating a Vidalia Onion today in celebration.

Georgia Southern student’s hold a candle light vigil for Trayvon Martin.

Savannah-Chatham police regained national accreditation. They did not, however, hire Robocop.

Looking for something to do this weekend? Well, you missed Ashburn’s annual Fire Ant Festival. But you can go hear some good music in the big city of Eastman.

Finally, here is a wonderfully written piece by Erick Erickson about Reynold Kosek. For several decades, Kosek instilled fear in the hearts of Mercer Law students. But Kosek’s methods made his students better lawyers. Like Erick, I had Professor Kosek as a first year law student. Although Kosek terrified me, I realize now that what he taught me transcended the Uniform Commercial Code Article 2. There will never be another Reynold Kosek.

    To borrow a phrase with liberties, I propose we just go ahead and change the official name of the Gen. Ass. to “Parliament of Crackerstan” and be done with it. Oh, women will have to sit in a separate section behind a curtain, of course.

    Ha, John Walraven is good people. I first met him working on Kathy Cox’s first superintendent campaign. I hope he punched Becker right in the mouth.
