The Hole: Lurid Splendor - The Atlanta Loop

"The people who advocated for bail reform – including me – made a point of telling the city council that, yes, it’s a good thing to end cash bond for petty crimes … but that the city needed to have enough social services support to accommodate a community without its most irritating members stewing in a cell for a few days a month ... That didn't happen."

By George Chidi, contributor Atlanta’s city jail is a ghost town. Next door, the street in front of Garnett Station is alive. Most of Atlanta is not dangerous. It’s hard to say that about Garnett at night, where someone can get shot while the cops are still there with the yellow tape up intervie...

Editorial: Today is a sad day for Atlanta and its schools - The Atlanta Loop

"The School Board, which knew that its decision would alienate many, did what any courageous group of public officials would do. They hired a PR firm to manage its talking points and avoided saying where individual board members stood on the matter of renewing her contract."

Vanessa McCray, reporting today in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, writes that the Atlanta Public School Board will not extend the contract of Superintendent Meria Carstarphen.

Editorial: Meria Carstarphen Shouldn't Be Worried About Keeping Her Job - The Atlanta Loop

"The School Board’s handling of this situation is amateur hour. Hiring and firing a superintendent is the most important job a School Board member has. They should be able to look their constituents in the eye and explain their votes. They know they are about to do something very polarizing and none of them have the guts to defend their decision in public. And if they can’t defend their decision in public, we have to ask: is this decision about what’s in the best interest of APS students or is it in the best interest of some board members who dislike the superintendent for personal reasons?"

Maybe some of her friends warned Meria Carstarphen about taking the job.

Book review: When Wild & Crazy Guys Ruled Hollywood - The Atlanta Loop

"It’s the story of a group of maverick comedians – John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Rick Moranis, and John Candy – who, true to the book’s subtitle, altered the landscape of cinematic and television comedy from the mid-70’s through the 1980’s."

"That time in the 1980's, when a bunch of very silly men were given very large sums of money and allowed to go play."
