Good morning. How about the ending to “Mad Men”, eh?
Today is a good day to be a rock-and-roll junkie, just like Herman Brood & His Wild Romance.
With SCOTUS’ decision yesterday, the Civil Rights Era comes to a close.
- Congressman John Lewis called the decision a “dagger in the heart of the Voting Rights Act.”
- Georgians react to the decision.
- Elected officials from Georgia, and other states impacted by the VRA, say there will be swift action following the decision.
- The Washington Post‘s Chris Cilliza looks at the political ramifications of the decision.
- Play around with this graphic so that, in favor or against the decision, you’ll actually know what you’re talking about.
- At the Capitol, gun rights and gun control advocates clashed. A fruitful, productive, totally fallacy-free and friendly debate followed. (The last sentence is a lie.)
- Governor Deal talks Common Core.
- Georgia State’s commencement speech featured in New York Times national roundup. Other Georgia schools featured: NONE. More proof GSU is the best.
- Our children is learning. Students show improvement on a majority of CRCT tests.
- Edward DuBose stepping down as GA NAACP head-honcho.
- What does 28 years of Atlanta urban sprawl look like from space? Funny you should ask. Here’s the answer.
- People flock to The Lady and Sons to support Paula Deen. Her only crime is gross food.
- Atlanta transplant Besha Rodell forgets/ignores that Pittypat’s Porch is a tourist trap for people looking for Southern nostalgia, not Southerners waxing on how things used to be. Kind of important.
- Go get some ramen at Miso before Guy Wong stops (again) and opens his ramen and yakitori joint in 2014. Also, plan to grab his buns on July 8.
- ICYMI: Here is all of King James’ game 7 in one .gif #GOAT
- Georgia is so influential, the U.S. Army conducts a drill on civil emergency response with the state.
