Hi. Here’s a song that is fitting for me. Also, my birthday is on Monday. Show your favorite Peach Pundit poster some love and buy him a nice gift.

Hope none of you were hurt by the nasty weather we had yesterday. Bold prediction: by the end of the day, Lake Lanier will be at full pool–first time in two years.

We’re 16th! The state collected $16.8 billion in tax revenue for the 12 months ending June 30, 2012 making us 16th out of 50. Yay?

Georgia’s stolen water attracts the eye of The Wall Street Journal.

“The Atlanta Teacher Aptitude Test” would be funny if it weren’t true.

Atlanta is apparently the nerdiest city in the U.S. Nerds: just go ahead and gimme your lunch money.

The AJC’s “Dining” section was awful this week, don’t read it…however…you should read about Bruce Logue’s new outpost, BoccaLupo.

    And key matchup tonight: Braves take on the Nats in DC. We always seem to come up short against the Nats. We’ll see if our guys can shake that monkey off their back…

    Go Braves!

        Harry, either someone has stolen your username and password and is using it to post the most asinine articles imaginable, or you’re taking trolling to a new level.

          • James says:

            I read it. I’m not sure what the discussion would be. The article appears to have been written in the 19th century by someone who has never met or had sex with a woman before.

            • Harry says:

              “After a woman learns that she is pregnant, her choices now affect another human life. The only difference at this stage between choosing an abortion or throwing bricks off an overpass of a busy interstate is that the abortion is certain to take a life where the brick poses the possibility. Both should be illegal for the same reason.”

              Should this assertion be limited to the 19th century?

              • James says:

                Yes. Here’s a hint, Harry – whenever an article begins with the question “Should a Woman Have the Right to Choose?” it’s a pretty good sign that the article espouses ideas that are decades outdated.

                But I’ll bite. So a guy can have unprotected sex with a woman and walk away with no issues. But the impregnated woman suddenly loses all decisionmaking over her own body? Thank god this hasn’t been the law since EVER.

                • James says:

                  And I’ll make one more comment. I’ve been reading your comments on this blog for some time. You’re one of these weirdly religious guys who purports to be extremely pro-life and punitively anti-abortion, but show no concern or compassion for those children once they are actually born — you hate public schools, public assistance, public healthcare, etc. So you don’t want the child aborted, but you don’t want to have to care for it once it’s born. So your arguments against abortion carry exactly zero weight.

                    • James says:

                      But you want big government to enforce rules curtailing a woman’s right to choose? So, in other words, you like big government when it supports the things you like, and hate it when it doesn’t? I see.

                    • Harry says:

                      Yes, to the limited extent government can accomplish anything, I’d like to see a reduction in the murder rate.

                • bowersville says:

                  I’m not getting into yours and Harry’s discussion on abortion, but I feel compelled to address that there are government provided services to pursue that male that decided to have unprotected sex and walk away.

                  The Division of Child Support Services (DCSS) helps children by enforcing parental responsibility to pay financial support.


                  Child Support Recovery will pursue through court proceedings, determine paternity, assist with child support enforcement and medical support for the child. So it’s not as easy as just walking away.

                  • Lea Thrace says:

                    Sadly, it is that easy. Sure CRS can pursue but unfortunately all the non paying parent has to do is work under the table and claim poverty to the court. Poof. There goes your legal means of recouping payments. This sadly happens more times than not.

    Speaking of Atlanta cheating, has anyone checked out the “esteemed” Michelle Rhee’s track record with regard to erasures in DC?? She’s like a little, Asian Beverly Hall.
