Morning Reads for Thursday, October 18

Happy rainy Thursday, sweet cheeks.






  1. Obi's Sister says:

    “Georgia voting on slower pace” – Three days in and the AJC is already poo-pooing the turnout numbers? They should have been at the Douglas County courthouse yesterday. At 11:20 am there were over a hundred people in line to vote early.

    The AJC should wait at least a week before they start whinin’.

      • Calypso says:

        No, that was yesterday’s paper. Voting slowed since they put yesterday’s paper to bed and when they wrote today’s piece.

        I dunno. Neither do they. I think they’re trying to fill white space with copy, since they’re having such a hard time filling it with ad space.

  2. Max Power says:

    Judge Staley should be ashamed of herself. Cobb County’s diversion program should be a state model but for Judge to short-circuit it for no reason is unacceptable.

  3. Bob Loblaw says:

    Boy, Pat Head knows how to present case law! Go for the Judge’s sister’s treatment under the law as precedent? If the judge treats this young lady any differently than her sister was treated, there’s a great opportunity for a successful appeal.

    Accept the D.A.’s recommendation, Judge. Get this over with so GA isn’t continued to be under the magnifying glass for punishing a person for something they can’t control, i.e., where they were born. No more doubletalk!

  4. Scott65 says:

    I thought the drunk stoned video was going to be funny…tragically, it wasn’t. Bridget, you always manage one or two funny links…just think about it. A little laughter is nice once in a while (just not honey boo boo…)

  5. The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

    “-Gallup: 51 Romney, 45 Obama among likely voters”

    Prediction: Romney will win the election by a final tally of 52-47 and become the 45th President of these United States of America and the Obama Adminstration will be resigned to being a mere footnote in the dustbin of history where it belongs.

    Oh the irony that Romney’s so-called “47 Percent” video likely precisely forecasted the outcome of the election by naming the exact percentage of voters that the current pathetic excuse of a so-called “Commander-in-Chief” will receive in a losing effort.

    • Calypso says:

      There you go getting all giddy again. Chill man. Celebrate like hell come November 7, but I don’t want to see you doing anything rash if B.O. pulls it off.

      • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

        To assuage your fears, I promise I won’t do anything “rash” if BHO pulls some kind of neat-o magic trick and escapes certain doom.

        Of course, my fingers were crossed when I made that promise, but like it matters as BHO is most likely (and thankfully) seemingly finished as “Commander-in-Chief” in charge of blocking REAL economic growth.

  6. SallyForth says:

    President, schmezident – I’m just anxious to see Tyler Perry act without a dress on! He has big shoes to fill following up on a Morgan Freeman role, but I’m an Alex Cross junkie and figure Tyler is up to the challenge.

    Now, as you were on the presidential race crystal balling. :)

  7. SallyForth says:

    Something for serious thought: Since the Supremes have declared corporations are people, why don’t they pay taxes like the rest of us? No corporate tax shelters and loopholes, no “nonprofit” corporations who operate totally tax free, etc. of all special tax treatment given corporations. The law should cut both ways.

    Is there some attorney in our P/P community who would take this to court pro bono as a class action for all of us real people?
