Atlanta blogs today

 — At Live Apartment Fire, CL gets some props from Doug Richards for the "delightfully evil" cover photo of Bob Barr that was shot by Joeff Davis. And Doug contrasts that with the shadowy photo of John McCain in the Atlantic that made Johnny Mac's crew go ballistic and forced the magazine's editor to apologize because the photographer altered the pic to make McCain look sinister.

– Over at Politits, DCup has a little fun with the government's trillion-dollar bail-out of what seems like every financial company on Wall Street. Since they aren't paying their debts, then surely they don't expect her to pay what she owes them. Right?

— is concerned by speculation that white folks are having a difficult time voting for a black man. At My Urban Report, he throws in his two cents worth.

— Wednesday is "Car-Free Day" in Decatur. And Decatur Metro isn't happy because it's the one day of the week that being carless isn't practical for him. Don't worry. Your's won't be the only automobile clogging Poncey on the way to downtown Atlanta and then back again on a "car free" day. But at least he'll feel guilty about it.

—  Dave at Rather Than Working has a new crib. Living up to his blog's name, he makes a list of all the things he was supposed to do over the weekend ... but didn't. Ah, the fine art of procrastination lives.

— And, finally, at Oh The Joys, there's a poignant post  where she recalls a visit to the psychiatric ward to see a suicidal friend, and taking with her a tape player cued up to her friend's favorite U2 song. More proof that music heals.
