    The Safe Campus Act story is interesting because the US Congress is trying to get involved in what is a local crime issue with some state interest. (controlling the way it’s state funded colleges behave) Am I reading the situation wrong?

      I’m all for it. What’s the downside? The biggest problem is that you have to open ballot access to actually get some choices, so you may end up with 15 candidates for one job. Good problem to have.

    AJC beer sales story: we may not have interest in craft breweries but the situation is a total embarrassment to what “business friendly” means in the state of Georgia. It defines legislation by selective regulation that has very little to do with protecting the public. Sad.

    • MattMD says:

      It the same backwoods nonsense which is why this state ranks so high in corruption and low in transparency.

      Our “three tiered” distribution system looks like something right out of The Sopranos.

  3. saltycracker says:

    “Earnings pressure” is finspeak for it is time for this insurance company to get in line for the taxpayer guarantee in Obamacare or we are out.

    Cut from earlier news article post on this
    “Administration officials for months have denied charges by opponents that they plan a “bailout” for insurance companies providing coverage under the health care law.

    They continue to argue that most insurers shouldn’t need to substantially increase premiums because safeguards in the health care law will protect them over the next several years.

    But the change in regulations essentially provides insurers with another backup: If they keep rate increases modest over the next couple of years but lose money, the administration will tap federal funds as needed to cover shortfalls.”
