CRAZY LIKE A FOX: A Kennesaw State professor has written a book that goes inside the Dark Genius of Roger Ailes and Fox News.

POLICE ACCOMMODATION: The new police headquarters downtown isn't the Ritz-Carlton, it's more like a "clean, comfortable" Holiday Inn.

T-SHIRT KILLER: A man walked into a convenience store in southwest Atlanta yesterday and asked for an extra large t-shirt. When the clerk turned to get it, the man opened fire and killed the clerk, then calmly walked out.

WHAT MORE IN THE NAME OF LOVE? While Dr. Martin Luther King's kids fight over their inheritance, organizers are behind schedule in raising $32 million to bring his papers to Atlanta.

FAST CAR: Something else in Clayton County that's not working is the C-TRAN bus system. Too many people are using it now and there aren't enough buses to meet the demand.
