First Slice 3/26/12: Federal healthcare gets the Supremes treatment

Posted By on Mon, Mar 26, 2012 at 8:30 AM

Always a hoot with this crew
1. Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens will represent the Peach State today at the U.S. Supreme Court, which is hearing arguments over whether federal healthcare reform pushed by President Barack Obama violates the Constitution. Olens will be the guy in a tank top and wearing a giant foam finger. The New York Times has created a handy guide to the three-day proceedings.

2. The Midtown offices of global architecture firm Perkins + Will has landed very high on the list of the most energy-efficient buildings in the Northern Hemisphere.

3. Forsyth County authorities are setting up a "drug take back box" for residents to dispose unwanted and outdated prescription drugs. The unofficial contest among red-eyed locals to find creative ways to haul the "box" away begins RIGHT NOW.

4. ICYMI: Occupy Atlanta's claiming its 42-day, err, occupation, helped prevent the telecom giant from cutting more than 250 jobs. Members of the leaderless movement will start breaking down their tents along West Peachtree Street after an 11 a.m. press conference.
