Intersection to soon be biggest parking lot
The debacle that is the Brave’s relocation to Cobb County continues. Now I read that yet another $14 million may be owed on transportation infrastructure. Former Chairman Tim Lee’s legacy has already cost Cobb taxpayers $69.5 million. My prediction is that the worst is yet to come. The “busiest intersection in Georgia” (I-75 and I-285) will soon be the biggest parking lot in Georgia as a few thousand more cars line up for the ballgame. Tim Lee must bear the responsibility for this fiasco. Might I suggest that our legislature take the steps to name the 75/285 interchange after him. That way as sports fans and daily commuters sit in the huge traffic jam, they will know who to thank for such an honor.

Trump right to fire craven Yates
Much will be made in liberal media such as the AJC about how brave Sally Yates was to defy President Trump. I call this Bravo-Sierra (figure it out). Common decency and history required Yates to advise President Trump that her “personal value system” would not allow her to defend even this lawful legal act and that she will offer her resignation. That she did not do so reflects negatively on her integrity. Yates is a political far-left Democrat who prefers to follow the Democrat Party line instead of doing her duty according to the U. S. Constitution. She was fired as she richly deserved for her failure to perform her sworn duty or to resign.
Sally Yates is not to be respected but should be condemned for refusing to do her duty and following the craven Democrat party line in spite of the oath she took to obtain her office. Yates will do well in the leftist Democrat party since she is so willing to compromise her oaths of office for probable future political largesse courtesy of the Democrat Party.
