Atlanta election write-in funny

Our favorite write-in votes from Atlanta’s 2017 elections

"Donald Duck," "Darth Vader," "Eat my shorts," "Migos," "LOL," "Someone who isn't a sell-out, please," and "Harambe." Atlantans like to get creative when they don't like their voting options.

Look who’s talking

Talk about getting off to a great start at a new job. John Silvanus Wilson Jr. was three weeks into his gig as Morehouse College president when he got a call from the White House: President Obama was interested in delivering the 2013 commencement address.

Herman Cain unhurt by scandal because he isn’t a real candidate

Will one or more sexual harassment settlements and alleged illegal campaign funding hurt Herman Cain's campaign to be the Republican Presidential nominee?
What will a boycott of Georgia's film industry do? Who is boycotting Georgia film industry?

Hollywood’s (threatened) boycott of Georgia, explained

What film studios will boycott Georgia over the abortion law? And what will those boycotts accomplish? We break down what has happened in Georgia's film industry so far since Governor Brian Kemp signed HB 481, the "heartbeat bill," into law.

I’m Tweeting the CNN Debate

If you're feeling masochistic, wander over to my Twitter page. I'm live-Tweeting the CNN Debate.

Well, we’re “suspending” things for now …

After careful consideration, talking it over with our families, consulting our advisers, and pondering the wisdom of the Pokemon movies, we've reached the conclusion that it's time to "suspend" this blog.

Commentary: Dear Braves fans, stop taking it out on Cobb

Listen you ITP people, there’s no reason to get personal. We Cobb residents didn’t ask for a baseball stadium any more than you Atlantans lobbied to kick the Braves out. Please direct your anger at Braves owner Liberty Media and your *own* elected officials. Hating on Cobb County is like an ex-wife blaming her husband’s new spouse, even though she’s the one who initiated the divorce.

Atlanta: Highest rate of income inequality in the U.S.

You don’t have to be a statistician or policy analyst to understand that there’s a huge gap between Atlanta’s haves and haves-not. Just walk down Edgewood Avenue on any given evening, where you will find one group of people sleeping on the sidewalks of the Downtown Connector underpass and another paying $20 for parking spots in an empty lot near a bar called Church.

Atlanta’s “unapologetic mayor” apologizes. Again.

Mayor Kasim Reed’s annual address to the Atlanta Press Club originally was scheduled for earlier this month, but rescheduled to today because Reed traveled to Washington D.C. to testify on transportation. It’s safe to assume he wish he’d stuck to the original agenda, given this week’s snow-induced gridlock that made Atlanta’s transportation woes an international news story.

Steve Penley has a message for Atlanta’s weather whiners

Atlanta artist Steve Penley had a message for the city Friday, so he took to his paints and brushes to best express himself. In black paint, Penley wrote: “Atlanta is very lucky to have a great mayor and Ga. has a great Gov. Get a grip everyone. It’s weather!” He posted it on his artist Facebook page. So why did Penley feel the need to address the ongoing criticism of Georgia governor Nathan Deal and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed? For starters, Penley’s work has been unintentionally ridiculed all week.
