I’ve alluded to the Memorial Day event at Doraville already, Liz Carter was there and after Col Kings presentation she talked to me a bit about what we heard:

I have to agree Chief King was very impressive and a lot of people would benefit from his presentation.

As I run around this morning here are a few clips from my visit to the Varsity Drive in Last night:

And Inside:

And a room I missed:

That very nice lady in the second Clip thinks I say “thank you very much” just like Elvis. I don’t hear it myself.

At the United PeachTree Corners Civic Organization candidate’s forum Liz gave me a few minutes of her time to talk about her candidacy:

It was my previous interview with Liz that prompted this trip. So far it has been very worthwhile.

I talked to Angela at the United PeachTree Corners Civic Organization candidate’s forum last night.

Her thoughts on paper ballots sync with me and Glenn Reynolds but during the forum she came out against photo id’s to vote. I’m for both myself.

Her grandfather BTW is from Sicily and she knows how to wear a fedora.

Oh and if you are just finding me via Glenn, Robert Stacy or the Daily Gator here are the posts up to the moment of the trip:


Calling all Atlanta Area Conservative Bloggers
: A suggestion that we have a night out together, I’m free tonight (Tuesday) and/or Friday
Fedora now in Dixie (the I’ve arrived post)
Voices of Georgia: Rochelle (my first interview and I comment on sedition back home)
Breakfast in America Mamie’s Kitchen ga-4 (I talk to patrons of a local coffee shop)
A talk with the Crossroads News (The Rather extraordinary Jennifer Parker talks to me about the district)
Voices of Ga-4 my pal Vinnie: (He looks nothing like Joe Pesci!)
A Few Photos from tonight: Photos from the United PeachTree Corners Civic Organization candidate’s forum. on May 24th.

The funny think about my pal Vinnie is he was a year behind me in school yet we became pretty close. Vinnie & Joe I normally see every other year but George who I was very close to in St. Anthony’s I hadn’t seen since 1978. Nor his parents and of course I never met his wife and kids.

We had some great political debates in the house as their opinions span the total width of political thought in the country.

I’ll wager if you aren’t familiar with this part of Ga-4’s demographics you expected that Vinnie would look something like Joe Pesci…WRONG!

Just as good every night his father George is up late while I’m posting and I’ve been getting some of his wisdom. He’s been a computer tech type since the 50’s and has forgotten more than I’ll ever learn about computers, but more importantly he knows about life and that is MUCH more interesting.

Of course not as interesting as the fine linkage that Robert Stacy and The Daily Gator have provided me, but the one thing I’m really lacking is the company of local bloggers. I’d like to do some kind of blogger get together before I scoot. Maybe Friday? Any ideas? I can add you to the Field guide if I meet you and we talk.

Update: Oh guys BTW about that “Yankee” stuff, don’t forget that like Scarlett Hazeltine where I come from everyone hates the Yankees.

What are the odds that the first person I talk to in Georgia would be from Boston?

The look on her face when I asked if she was a republican or a democrat was priceless.

Update: Instalanche! Thanks Glenn. More of my Georgia-4 coverage from Mamie’s Kitchen and from a local paper The Crossroads news. I just under an hour ago got back from a candidate forum in the 7th district and will be uploading video overnight for Posting tomorrow. And don’t miss my Examiner column on the Rand Paul issue here. And don’t forget every time you read one of my examiner columns you put a penny in my pocket.

I will be posting from Georgia’s 4th district and the area all week, I hope to see you again before I head home. Then again if this post is to be believed maybe they won’t let a seditious person like me back

In 2008 there was a question on the Massachusetts ballot to repeal the state income tax. It lost spectacularly by 40 points.

However a lot has changed in Massachusetts in the last 14 months to Carla Howell who spearheaded the last attempt to roll back taxes is back again. This time with an attempt to roll back the sales tax to 3%

I met her at the Post (tea) party Summit and she consented to an interview:

Things being a tad different in Massachusetts these days anything could happen.

This morning it is really interesting to see the level of coincidence yesterday.

First of all because I had failed to raise the money to get to Pa-12 I was in Fitchburg instead of being on the road.

Because of this I went to morning Mass for Ascension Thursday.

Because of this I ran into my 80 something godfather.

Because of this I was able to invite him to breakfast with my mother and myself.

He ended up going to the wrong diner, because of this I had to go get him.

Because of this I saw the sign at J & R glass concerning the Governor’s visit.

Because of this after breakfast I headed down there to report on it.

Because of this I heard about the cancellation and the terror arrests

and because of that I have the photos and stories that you read yesterday.

The moral of the story? When you attend Mass on a holy day of obligation, good things happen!

I talked to Christine directly after the last panel

At the time I didn’t realize she was a blogger so I’ll add her to DaTechGuy’s Field guide to bloggers. Of course anyone who blogs at Smart Girl Politics deserves to be read.
