Atlanta blogs today

— The New York Times published a scathing report on Sarah Palin's tenure as governor in Alaska over the weekend, and one item really caught the eye of Amy Morton at Georgia Women Vote: a Palin aide called a blogger and tried to order them not to blog any longer. Hmmm ... sounds like someone has issues with criticism. Can we say control freak?

— General David Petraeus is leaving Iran Iraq after five years of commanding forces there to return to the United States. Our friend at the Daly Briefing was given the daunting assignment of preparing a farewell video tribute.

— There hasn't been a lot of press on it yet — everyone's focused on the lies being slung in the presidential race — but one of the core issues to consider is the next president will be appointing folks to the U.S. Supreme Court. Decatur Guy at Atlanta Public Affairs delves into the issue and notes that seven of the last nine justices were appointed by Republican presidents.

— Sometimes, the world turns upside down. On the latest "Morning Wooten," DriftGrift actually finds himself agreeing with the AJC's resident conservative ... but only to a degree.

—WGCL-TV promises to cram together Atlanta's top stories AND Dagmar Midcap's weather forecast into the first five minutes of the broadcast. Live Apartment Fire notes that is a little white lie.

– Finally, Carla at Concrete Lace tries to explain something that has confounded modern man, or at least this one: Why are so many women these days so into eating junk food?
