So we have a new mayor

It’s been a while since we posted on this blog – blame our jobs for cranking out into high gear, blame our political fatigue, blame our laziness.  Well, I’m going to try to post twice a week here – at least get some new content stuff up.

And we have a new mayor in Atlanta.  Well, that “we” doesn’t really include me, as I live outside the city limits.  Outside the perimeter.  Heaven forbid.  I did watch a little of the campaign, and I definitely saw some racial undertones out there, although most of my mid 30s white friends went for Reed over Norwood, I was a bigger fan of Norwood over gay rights issues.  I didn’t like Reed’s stance on the Eagle raid, and he doesn’t support full gay marriage, although I do acknowledge he was one of the few who did vote against the Georgia gay marriage amendment.  So I’m withholding judgment on Reed – let’s see what he’s able to do inside Atlanta.  I hope he can meet his goals and I hope he can not disappoint us (I’ve been far too dissapointed with Obama lately.)  We’ll see – only time will tell.  Good luck Mayor Reed – you have a lot of challenges ahead of you, and a lot of problems to tackle.
