Atlanta blogs today

— The clock is ticking as convicted murderer Troy Davis has a date with the death penalty. At Counterpunch, Laura Tate Kagel and Jen Marlowe make the case for clemency — if there was ever someone on Death Row who's not guilty, it's likely that it's Davis.

— The city gets props from B King at Terminal Station for taking on the epidemic panhandling in downtown. He says downtown can't become viable until the situation is taken care of. And how did begging for money become known as "panhandling" anyway?

— At Lucid Idiocy, Travis notes a survey that shows Southern white evangelicals are more likely to support torturing people for information than the rest of the general public. Must be some kind of Old Testament inspiration.

— They're also more prone to vote for McCain and Palin, even if the MO of the GOP's nominees is to not tell the truth about hardly anything. Like Palin's past. Or saying Obama supports teaching sex education to kids in kindergarten. Say what? At Politits,  Dcup wants to know why the media is so afraid of using the "L" word. As in, "liar, liar, pants on fire."

— At Going Through The Motions, Sara reminds us there is a big difference between spin and outright lying. Unfortunately, she got into a discussion last weekend with Republicans who didn't quite get the distinction.

— And, finally, Mingaling  evokes JFK to remind us of what it is we're supposed to be safeguarding.
