First Slice 3/22/12: APS redistricting meetings not about race

Posted By on Thu, Mar 22, 2012 at 9:30 AM

1. Superintendent Erroll B. Davis last night told a packed house at Jackson High School that the necessary redistricting and closings he has recommended — mainly to handle overcrowding and under enrollment in a school system and a city dealing with the effects of decades of white flight — is "not about race." Gotcha.

2. Atlantans are traveling to Florida to rally in protest in the case of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old unarmed teen fatally shot in February by a neighborhood watchman.

3. The pollen count is going down even more today. So you can all stop tweeting about it, k?

4. Georgia is getting a Starbucks plant where they'll make Via packets of coffee, among other things. Or, as I call them every morning, little packages of dream powder.
