Atlanta City Councilman Michael Julian Bond
Atlanta City Councilman Michael Julian Bond says he billed taxpayers $2,400 for a trip to Washington, D.C. to study a "heritage trail" and meet with public officials. While in the nation's capital, he also... attended a family reunion nearly every night he was in town [11 Alive autoplay warning]. In addition to those charges, 11 Alive's Catie Beck questioned Bond about buying special pins for his high-school classmates and "general math" tutoring.

Don't have a MyAJC subscription to read an article about the proposed Atlanta Braves stadium? Maybe you can... read a Marietta Daily Journal article about the newspaper's house ad hyping the story? Or what Cobb County Chairman Tim Lee thinks the story might be about?

Some of the world's top public relations firms have politely made clear that they won't work with companies that deny climate change.

R.I.P., Peter Hall, the city planner who created "enterprise zones."
