Opinion: Why joy in politics is in such short supply
 Joy to the world. Please. I realize the entire world is not the political one, but in those precincts there is precious little mirth these days. The happy warrior is an endangered species. This joylessness is more a feature of those obsessed with politics than of actual practitioners. Social media and comment threads, marches and public hearings...

Opinion: What you may not know about GOP tax bill and ‘the rich’

8:11 PM Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2017

The Republican tax-reform bill is on its way to President Donald Trump’s desk. The bill makes major, long-needed changes to the corporate income tax and cuts rates across the board for individuals. Yet, two refrains won’t go away: first, that the bill is skewed in favor of “the rich”; and second, that it is unpopular...
Opinion: What you didn't know about tax reform and 'the rich'
 The tax-reform bill 
               cleared the House
             Tuesday afternoon and is expected to be taken up by the Senate soon (though it appears the House will have to re-vote on it after the Senate, for technical reasons). As it marches on toward becoming law, two refrains won't go away: first, that the bill is skewed in favor of...

Opinion: Tax reform is coming, and here's the best part
 The House is scheduled to vote Tuesday on the final version of 
               tax reform
            , and the bill seems all but certain to land on President Trump's desk by the end of the week. So it's time to take stock of 
               what this bill has become
            . Let's start with the corporate side, which is the only part...

Opinion: A substantive boost for ailing rural Georgia

5:00 PM Friday, Dec. 15, 2017

MILLEDGEVILLE — Almost 150 years have passed since the seat of Georgia’s government left this city built for the purpose. It only feels that long since the rest of the state had as much influence and prosperity as Milledgeville’s replacement, a future metropolis called Atlanta. Injecting new life into far-flung communities...

Opinion: Can the GOP avoid more losses like Alabama next year?

9:00 PM Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017

Now we know what it takes for the Republicans to lose in a deep-red state like Alabama. Start with a special election. Add an interim replacement whose appointment came amid somewhat sketchy circumstances. Mix in a now-standard fight between the establishment and the self-proclaimed “swamp drainers.” Let the two factions go to...
Opinion: What does their Alabama win mean for Democrats in 2018?
 We now have an answer to the question, what does it take for the Republicans to lose in a deep-red state like Alabama? But be careful, because it's a longer answer than you might expect. Start with a special election to replace a senator (who seems to be in constant danger of being fired from his new job). Add an interim replacement whose...

Opinion: Wild Alabama Senate race offers one last twist before the end

Opinion: Democrats lay claim to Atlanta — for better or worse

5:00 PM Friday, Dec. 08, 2017

It’s hardly breaking news that Atlanta is Democratic territory. It has long elected Democrats to the state and U.S. capitols and borne a deep blue in statewide contests. And although its mayoral elections are officially nonpartisan, no one has bothered trying to get to City Hall as a card-carrying Republican in a long time. Still, it...
Opinion: A day of reckoning coming to Congress?
 Al Franken's 
               announcement Thursday
             that he will resign from the Senate may not be the beginning of the end of the story of powerful elected officials in Washington brought down by their bad behavior. It might not even be the end of the beginning. The Minnesota Democrat finally stepped down after another woman...

Opinion: An example for Atlanta’s new mayor to follow

9:00 PM Wednesday, Dec. 06, 2017

A departing administration stained by corruption charges. Campaign issues such as inadequate infrastructure, police shortages, and gentrification’s effect on housing prices. A candidate who’s cozy — maybe too cozy — with the city’s political establishment; who’s dogged by questions about personal tax liens...

Opinion: Dealing with the good and the bad of our falling icons
 We spent the late summer talking about monuments to dead men, and whether we should tear them down. We’ve spent the fall tearing down the living. Unlike the statues in our parks, the men (they’re all men) being felled by accusations of sexual harassment and/or assault over the past two months are able to speak up for themselves...
