It would be a bit grand to declare Mike Tidwell a prophet.

The Georgia native and award-winning writer dropped by the Carter Center last week to read from his new book, The Ravaging Tide. Tidwell underwent a life-changing experience seven years ago while reporting a travel story in Louisiana. Local folks explained that the Gulf of Mexico was rising while Louisiana's lowlands were sinking. He...

Staff Writer Alyssa Abkowitz wrote a story this week (Fallout, p. 20) that touches on a subject near and dear to me: my brief talk-radio career.

Her article actually is about the demise of Air Atlanta, the local Air America affiliate. Air America is the liberal talk-radio network created to counter right-wing dominance of the AM airwaves. Creative Loafing sponsored (and I hosted) "Air Loaf," a...

Creative Loafing has a new publisher. His name is Dave Schmall.

Those of you who've followed the saga of CL publishers can go ahead and cast bets over how long the new guy will last. Yeah, sure. Snicker. Tell your little jokes.

"How many Creative Loafing publishers does it take to spin the revolving door?"

"One — as long as he comes in and out on the same day."

Ha. Ha.

Well, this...

We're no longer just a newspaper. I'm not sure I'm ever going to get used to that.

Take, for example, last week's cover story ("The gentry are coming"). It wasn't the kind of lengthy yarn we might typically run as a cover story. The idea was that we'd publish more of a conversation-starter on gentrification — a subject a lot of folks in Atlanta are talking about.

We continued that...

A story in the Jan. 25 edition, "State revokes mortgage broker's license" (News & Views), incorrectly stated that the mortgage license of Georgia State Mortgage's president was revoked. The story should have stated that the license of the company had been revoked. The president of Georgia State Mortgage also disputes an applicant's statement in the story that it was the brokerage firm, not the... | more...

Sex non-appeal

Your cover story on "Atlanta's king of porn" (Jan. 12) was a great disservice to your youthful audience, your advertisers and the community.

The article could not have been more favorable if it had been written by Mike South's own publicist. His film series and multiple online businesses are given a big, free plug. He's described as a "prolific filmmaker" and an "award-winning...

Scott Walsey fills a room as well as anyone I know. He's the natural promoter who built Creative Loafing's sales force during 26 years here.

Since the 2000 merger between Tampa's Weekly Planet and Creative Loafing Inc., Walsey has served as CL's publisher. He's the kind of publisher any editor would want: one who offers support and candid feedback but doesn't try to force his point of view....
