Saturday's Air Loaf: Georgia politics and Delta mismanagement

By Sarah Winterfield

Will President Bush's tanking poll numbers cause the Republicans to lose control of Congress? Do Democrats have a chance of retaking Georgia's top elected offices?

Emory political scientist Alan Abramowitz joins CL Editor Ken Edelstein in a wide-ranging discussion of upcoming local, state and national elections.

Abramowitz closely follows Georgia politics. He's also one of the nation's leading experts on political polling and voting behavior.

Also on the show: Harry L. Nolan Jr., Sandy Springs management consultant and author of Airline Without a Pilot: Lessons in Leadership, an in-depth critique of Delta Air Lines. Nolan's book argues that dysfunctional management styles and poor financial decisions Ñ not high fuel prices or

low-cost competition Ñ led to Delta's bankruptcy. Nolan's cogent critique of the airline and the lessons he gleans from top-level mismanagement have far-reaching implications for our current culture of arrogant, financially profligate, out-of-touch business "leadership."

Air Loaf airs every Saturday, 10 a.m. until noon, on 1690 AM Air Atlanta. Listen in and call in at 404-633-1690.

If you missed last week's show, catch the podcast below: In the first hour (segments 1-4), CL film critic Curt Holman offered an irreverent Oscar preview, and Danny Orrock of Georgia Watch updated listeners on car-title lending legislation and the latest consumer rip-offs making their way through the state Legislature. It was highlighted in the second hour (segments 5-8) by a discussion with Ryan Gravel, the brains behind the Beltline concept, and Liz Coyle, a neighborhood activist and Beltline watchdog.
