Good morning everyone, it’s the last Friday in 2012. Let’s start with Jib Jab’s 2012 Year In Review:
- A Judge put a hold on Georgia’s fetal pain bill.
- Turnout is low thus far in special elections set for 1/08/13. Get out and vote for Sean Jerguson in SD21 and Brad Hughes in SD11. Why you ask? Because they’re good guys and we need as many good guys (and gals) at the Capitol as we can get. Full Disclosure: I’ve donated to both of them.
- How big is the Gwinnett County Public School system? Really big.
- Controversial double-decker buses. Oh My!
