My W-2 just came in the mail, my bank is sending me reminders to download my 1099, and my TV is full of kindly tax service professionals who assure me that they’re there to help. This weekend I’ll sit down at the kitchen table with a pile of forms and a checkbook, and I’ll pay my taxes. It’s not glamorous, but it’s something we all do.

Well, almost all of us.

This Monday, January 21st, is significant in American democracy for a number of reasons.

Resolutions were made, the Peach was dropped, and a new year is beginning in Georgia.  For those of us who are public interest fighters, a new year means that a new legislative session, ripe with opportunity, is beginning at the Gold Dome.

 

As the calendar year draws to a close and the holiday season nears its peak, gift-buying season gives way to gift-receiving season.

In their most recent report, a state-hired independent monitor of the Plant Vogtle construction project has determined that the new nuclear reactors at the facility will be delayed at least a year.

 

The "fiscal cliff" is perhaps the biggest political issue of the moment.

This November, I exercised my right as a citizen of the United States and went to the polls to vote.

Without going to the polls, a number of corporations exercised their unwisely-granted new rights to influence the elections far beyond my one vote.

It’s a holiday morning and kids all over the world are waking up to open their presents. Big smiles and laughter abound.  What could be wrong with this picture?
