A car plunges into the former Bellwood Quarry in NW Atlanta (via Atlanta Time Machine):
Traffic on the Hollywood Freeway was stopped some 90 minutes Tuesday as part of a PR stunt by a Orange County rock band. Judging by the way they describe themselves on their Facebook page, this would be akin to waiting out filming of an O-Town video on the Connector:
The Imperial Stars are what they appear to be; ROCK STARS! Living on the Edge they’re known for getting crazy and hanging out with their friends. Living the dream on stage under the heat of the lime light, Orange County California based amplified sound virtuosos cement themselves as one of the preeminent entertainment groups in popular music. Dynamic synthesizers, authoritative drum patterns and mainstay power vocals that remind even the average ear of greatness, The Imperial Stars pierced themselves into the heart of music history.
Compelling evidence indicates that Georgia’s next governor used his position in Congress to enhance his personal holdings. And still he’s broke, “effectively insolvent,” according to the AJC. Voters have been told, yet Nathan Deal’s lead holds steady.
I would like to think his latest scandal would derail Deal’s campaign, but why should this one be any different?
It was a private road to nowhere, but then Congressman Nathan Deal wanted the county to maintain it. The FOX I-Team has uncovered a paper trail that shows Deal’s chief of staff used congressional resources to help make that happen.
Senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell says this is similar to the issue that lead to an earlier ethics investigation of Deal in Washington.
One of the items in the Congressional ethics investigation of then Congressman Nathan Deal was whether he used government resources for his private business.
That involved a statewide contract.
Oh, and he’s non-committal about allowing voters decide whether they want Sunday alcohol sales.(maybe that’ll do him in):
Deal refused to answer questions from reporters after the debate when asked to clarify his position on the flag or on his answer to a question about Sunday alcohol sales. Deal said he favored local government control of issues, but did not say if he would sign a bill allowing local referendums. Barnes and Monds both said they would sign such a bill.
Georgia’s embarrassed me plenty over the years, but voting in Nathan Deal might top it all.
