Atlanta blogs today: Kai, Pye and Guys May 23 2007

— Aging Hipster remarks on the front-page story in today's AJC about a federal investigation of whether Mayor Shirley Franklin's daughter, Kai Franklin, laundered money for her convicted drug dealer ex-husband, Tremayne Graham.
Two weeks ago, CL's Mara Shalhoup wrote about the investigation in her cover story about Graham. I would have said "wrote about it brilliantly," but I'd hate to be accused of bias.
Bush's re-election has been one of the worst things to happen to this country since Jimmy Carter was in office.
— Jason Pye at JasonPye.com. Pye's hackles were raised by Bush's support of a bill that would increase the minimum wage.
I met Jason at the Peach Pundit happy hour last Friday. I didn't see any hackles.
The AGMC exploits the desires of some of Atlanta's gay men to get in a group and sing. Of course, it is also a means of hooking up with new partners and a great networking tool for them. They must pay excessive quarterly dues that almost completely supports the group and keeps them singing.
— The person who writes the blog Atlanta Classical Music thinks the Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus is a rip-off.
