First Slice 9/16/12: Emory University to ditch journalism school, other programs

Posted By on Sun, Sep 16, 2012 at 9:56 AM

Emory, after shaking school-ranking controversy, decides to stay in headlines
Emory University plans to close its journalism school and other departments — including the economics and Spanish graduate program — in its "stretched to the limit" College of Arts and Sciences over the next two years. Expect a brouhaha come Monday over the surprising decision.

County commissioners in metro Atlanta have chopped programs and departments but have been hesitant to reduce spending on their own budgets. Some have even increased funding to run their offices and pay staffers. Leading the pack: Fulton County.

Portraits of the four U.S. State Department employees killed in Libya are emerging and worth reading: Chris Stevens, the American Ambassador, hailed from Northern California and was said to have loved the African country. And Sean Smith, a foreign service information management officer, was an influential player and community member of Eve Online, a role-playing video game produced by CCP Games, which has offices in Decatur.

Two peas in a pod: CBS Atlanta and Honey Boo Boo.
