Bring on college football! Only 17 days (Aug 28) till the SEC opener. And while you’re waiting for College Football to start, if you were in the fantasy league last year you may need to contact Buzz. Go here for more detail.

Georgia

The best story of this election cycle so far? How a Cambodian genocide survivor became a Superior Court Judge.
Tucker/Northlake plans to add bike and pedestrian friendly access as part of revitalization.
The next twist in the Justin Ross Harris case, his wife claims to be a victim.
The Dems are getting ready for the challenges ahead after their convention.
Most Georgia school systems will likely become charter systems, likely charter in name only.

SEC

UGA has the smallest O-Line in the SEC?!? Ole Miss has the Biggest?!?
Just one more way the SEC dominates.
Quite possibly the strangest NCAA (potential) infraction of the off season.

National International

America’s big cities, ranked most liberal to most conservative.
Hawaii, it’s a strange state.
Possible new rules from the FEC on political ads.
Since there is still a lot of misunderstanding, let’s talk Ebola again.
Israel is not alone in it’s distaste for Hamas, most Arab states don’t like them either.

Maybe Georgia should look at what Maryland implemented

The article points out the real failure of Obamacare aka ACA: It doesn’t really reform the medical status quo. In order to really make a positive change you have to shake the special interest tree. This is what Maryland is doing, while maintaining a diplomatic approach to solving the problem.

Um, can we get awkward for a second?

By no stretch do I think Georgia taxpayers should ever have to buy my feminine products, but this article mentions that our prisons don’t provide them to female prisoners? That’s simply ridiculous, unhealthy, unsanitary, and just gross.

Much like Jon Stewart uses comedy to bring a lot of political issues to light, Piper Kerman and Orange is the New Black has women’s prisons on the radar.
