First Slice 7/19/12: When nature calls

What better way to voice your transportation tax opposition than burning a lot of gas and pissing off commuters? This Saturday, a Marietta anti-T-SPLOST group plans to make two laps around I-285, flashers flying, without ever breaking the speed limit.

The protestors could even have a few drinks before hand and not have to worry. Maybe. Sort of. If the sales pitch for the new Breathalyzer Equalizer holds true, drunkards around the state have a new line of defense when it comes to 'proving’ their sobriety.

The president has his sites set back on Georgia — or at least the state's biggest harbor. Under his “We Can’t Wait” initiative, Obama promised to put major infrastructure projects at five ports around the country on the fast track to completion, Savannah included.

When nature calls, sometimes even a Congressman can’t hit the brakes. On his flight back to Georgia, Democratic Rep. Sanford Bishop had to go so bad that — full bathrooms be damned — it was going to happen. In a cup.
