Redistricting gives GOP key to political power in Georgia
 Once every decade, a peculiar spectacle occupies Georgia’s General Assembly. It’s a time when lawmakers pay little heed to lobbyists, much less constituents.

Deaths, delays paint grim picture of Georgia mental health reform
 Mentally ill patients often left Georgia’s state psychiatric hospitals with just a bus token and directions to a homeless shelter.
