Atlanta blogs today

Posted By on Fri, Sep 19, 2008 at 4:15 PM

 — Reporter Cub writes about the Southern Baptist bookstores that pulled a gospel magazine from their shelves because — OH MY GOD — it had a picture of five female pasters on the cover. Such blasphemy! Bet the same folks will be voting for a female vice-president. You know, so long as they have their priorities in place.

— Some of the folks who banned the gospel magazine must've been in Tifton last weekend at the Omega Pepper Festival. As Blog For Democracy notes,  some Obama supporters got the boot because they were trying to register voters. The audacity!

— Amy Morton over at Georgia Women Vote joins the chorus of those who are asking if Obama's race is the reason he's not 15 points ahead in the polls. When push comes to shove, will white people vote for a black man for president? Even if the alternative is a ticket with a VP candidate who thinks creationism should be taught in the public schools and conducts public business on her private yahoo email account?

— Over at Decatur Metro, there's a celebrity slugfest going on: Who's Decatur's most famous resident?

— At the Wren's Nest, there's going to be a fund-raiser on Sept. 27 featuring Kingsized.  The problem is they're nervous that no one is going to show up because they were a little tardy in promoting the show. So here's a plug in helping them get the word out.

— And, finally, with fall temperatures finally breaking through, we can actually sit outside without drowning in our own sweat. But where to go? Don't fear. The fine ladies at Pecanne Log have come up with a list of favorite outdoor patios to have a brew and drink a toast to autumn leaves.
