Sad Saturday Georgia Round-up

Today we said good-bye to hubby’s best friend’s dad. A fine man, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was always one of those old fellas who had the ‘twinkly eyes’ – always up to something. The Greatest Generation is shrinking exponentially now. After we, the children and grandchildren of that generation, are gone, who will remember their courage and sacrifice?

Georgia Quote of the Day goes to the Paul Westerdawg of Georgia Sports Blog on Matt Stafford going as the #1 draft pick to the Detroit Lions:

Personally, I’m hoping they use their 2nd, 3rd and 4th round picks on offensive linemen. It’s extremely hard to be a good quarterback when you’re in the hospital.

Knowshon Moreno went 12th to Denver. To those who don’t bleed Red & Black, Knowshon is the closest thing in years to the immortal Bulldawg Herschel Walker. Blutarsky gets all misty.

Buzz at PeachPundit lists the Georgia candidates in the next election who tweet. Is it just me, or is it just too soon? We’re still suffering from the last election’s hangover.

Georgia nemesis meets Moron-in-Chief. Captions please.

The CDC, based in Atlanta, is very busy these days. Maybe those clowns in Congress will get serious about closing the border now.

The Barnes stealth campaign continues.

Those little Trade School nanos sure stay busy…

Federal aid for flooded Georgians in South Georgia. Hope its real aid, with no strings attached like that TARP crap.
