It's almost Crossover Day in the Georgia General Assembly, we'll talk to Sen. David Shafer. There's still a lot of misinformation on Georgia Power and the cost overruns at Plant Vogtle. Who's right? FAMU hazing folks had their charges changed in the beating death of Mr. Champion. What does this mean and what is the culture? Finally for fun, why are we not sleeping? Dr. Michael Thorpy did a study of the most sleepless cities. Savannah in the top 10...must be all the ghosts. I think Athens and Gainesville ought to be there, too.
It's the deadline for the cuts related to the sequester, will the world come to an end? And the ongoing battle between the PSC and Georgia Power. Who pays cost overruns, regardless of legislation, ultimately, the rate payer. 2014 is shaping up to be a big year in Georgia Politics. Bob Barr? Really? And, for fun, Girls Gone Wild is bankrupt. A victim of excess.
