1. Welp, the polls are open folks. Today's the day. To make your voice heard through the democratic process. ISN'T IT EMPOWERING? And maybe mentally and emotionally exhausting? If you're still ambivalent about the T-SPLOST, be sure to read our super swexy package that 'splains the whole thing. I mostly can't wait to see whether or not Brookhaven becomes a city. Nail biter.

2. A mentally disabled Smyrna teen who "fell through the cracks," according to DFCS, was starved to death by her mother. A really horrifying story.

3. You could soon have even more opportunity to cultivate a gambling problem in the name of education! Do your part, lose your hat! I'm trying to break into advertising.

4. Andy Copeland, father of flesh-eating bacteria survivor and amputee Aimee, told CNN of his daughter's rehab, "The regimen that she is under right now is incredible," explaining that she does 200 stomach crunches and 400 leg lifts, each in seven minutes, as well as an 'untold' number of pushups, for 90 minutes every day.
