‘Breakdown’ S03, Ep. 4: Doctor relocates his practice, and his problem


In Episode 4 of the AJC's podcast, "Breakdown: Predator M.D.," an Ohio doctor has left his practice in the small city of Lima and moved to Atlanta. Also left behind in Ohio: the lawsuits and complaints that piled up against him, many of which were related to sexual abuse. 

Indeed, the physician never faced any criminal charges in Ohio. But that would change in Georgia.  

Johnny Edwards, part of the reporting team behind the AJC's award-winning series "Doctors & Sex Abuse," examines why Dr. Narendra K. Gupta was able to get a medical license in Georgia and breaks down the Johns Creek police investigation against the doctor.

Opinion: Tragedy in Charlottesville should unite decent Americans

In the South during the Jim Crow era, the “one-drop rule,” codified into law, asserted that if a person had just one drop of African-American blood, they were considered “black.” I wonder what we’d learn if we gave former KKK leader David Duke and the “white nationalists” who caused havoc in Charlottesville...
Opinion: Sadly, the United States is not ‘better than this’

It has become the go-to cliche for moments like this. We whisper it when someone breaks the mosque window or scrawls hatred on the synagogue wall. It is our assurance and our hope. “We are better than this,” we say. “This is not America.” So it is no surprise to be hearing that sentiment days after white supremacists descended...

Cass Sunstein: Trump actually did something good this week
