First Slice 5/9/14: Homeland Security announces seizure of 346 pounds of cocaine, keeps talking, gets up to go to the bathroom again

Michael Boggs, a Georgia state judge to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, will finally testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next Tuesday. Part of a package deal struck with Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson to fill six vacant seats on the federal bench, the Obama nominee has an abysmal record that includes suppressing women's rights, voting to keep the Confederate emblem on the state flag, opposing same-sex marriage, and taking candy from children (probably).

Site Selection Magazine's exaltation of Georgia as the nation's No. 1 place to do business is a big applause line in Gov. Nathan Deal's current stump speech. The facts behind Deal's crowing are extremely problematic when it comes to financial support, evaluation criteria, and simple logic. Like the evil twin of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, follow the money on this one and keep an eye out for the the giant cauldron of bullshit. Your nose will know when you're close.

Attention 24 hour party people, train conductors named Casey, and 97 Estoria regulars: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced yesterday that more than 346 pounds of cocaine were seized at the Port of Savannah on April 14. It is unclear how this will affect the price of limes.

And since we're talking limes and lines, Elmyriachi, the new sister restaurant of Little 5 staple El Myr, opens today in Kirkwood.
