Swamped by lawsuits, Mississippi gets reprieve in defense of state flag

The U.S. Supreme Court has given the governor of Mississippi extra time to defend the Confederate battle on his state’s flag. The response had been due Thursday, but the state sought an extension because its law department is busy defending the pending state take-over of the Jackson public school district and a challenge of the state’s parole board by a murderer/arsonist.

Let’s do a better job preserving Atlanta’s past in 2017

The coming of a new year heightens our sensitivity to the changes in our life and our city.

This year marked the last Peach Drop as we know it. Sadly, the rain and the cold dampened the final event held at Underground Atlanta before it is sold to WRS Realty in the near future.

The good news is that the historic structures in and around Underground will be preserved as new buildings are constructed as part of the new development.

But there are so many other landmarks in danger of being demolished during 2017 with Atlanta having a spotty record of preserving its most precious landmarks.
