Atlanta blogs today

Posted By on Mon, Sep 8, 2008 at 2:36 PM

 — The presidential election approaches. With Georgia now officially off the table for Obama, JMac at Safe As Houses takes a look at the states still up for grabs.

— Is Sarah Palin a bad parent because her 17-year-old daughter is preggers? Dcup at Politits isn't ready to go there.  But Palin's family situation has caused her to look back at her own adventures in raising teenagers.

— At Blue Heart of Dixie, Jason takes offense at the AJC's Jim Wooten declaring that Palin is "one of us." Not so fast, he writes.  Exactly who is "us?" And why do people who challenge the status quo get labeled as traitors who don't love their country?

—Over at Chicken Fat, Edwin waxes poetic about his family doctor growing up. Ah, the good ol' days:  If your were sick, you didn't make an appointment; you just showed up to be treated.

— Modernism is also stuck in the craw of Max Earnest, a local artist who has created the blog Central Branch Library to raise the question of  why Fulton County would want to demolish a perfectly fine central library in downtown to build another one. In his mind, it's pimping the public to the tune of $275 million.

— And, finally, WXIA-TV's Jerry Carnes, a long-time news reporter, has prostrate cancer and is devoting a blog to detailing his fight to beat it.
