First Slice 7/16/12: Controversial murals removed from Georgia Department of Agriculture find a (temporary) home

Controversial murals removed from the state Department of Agriculture will be displayed at the Georgia Museum of Art at the Universty of Georgia. Museum officials want to give the public an opportunity to debate the George Beattie paintings, which depict the history of agriculture in the Peach State and include scenes of slavery, and why they are controversial. Which sounds like what museums should do.

Wipe the barbecue sauce off your chins and sit up straight: The New York Times is paying attention to how we vote on the regional transportation tax.

The state cut jobs but the University System of Georgia kept hiring.

Democrats and Republicans will be asked several nonbinding questions on the July 31 ballots about issues including abortion, gambling, selective tax breaks, charter schools, and ethics.

Drag racing on the border of DeKalb and Henry counties!
