Atlanta blogs today December 10 2008
— Another year is nearing its end, with a new year full of possibility and promise and resolutions ready to begin. Which, of course, means lots of year-end lists. DriftGrift kicks things off with his list of top blog stories of the year, the first of which hits very close to home — the firing of Ken Edelstein as the editor of this publication. Nicely put, my brother.
— And speaking of this publication, Steve Fennessy checks in at CityScape on the latest in CL's bankruptcy. There was another hearing today at the bankruptcy court in Tampa.
— Oh, my god ... can it be that what's-her-name — the blonde wig girl who can't sing but has Dallas Austin as her producer — was right after all? WAGA's Dana Fowle went on the celebrity investigative beat to dig up the dirt on NeNe of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" fame. Over at Live Apartment Fire, Doug ponders whether that's a good thing. Should I care? It's kinda like a traffic accident; I'm fixated.
— Isn't there just something about Nancy Pelosi that gives you the creeps? It certainly does for Politits, who has a few words of advice for the speaker of the House.
— When I think of city downtowns, I think of New York and Paris — you know, places that actually have nightlife and people in their city centers. Not the ghost town that is Atlanta. B King over at Terminal Station was downtown after a Hawks game, however, and says that for once it actually felt like a real downtown.
— And, finally, the lovely Sara at Going Through The Motions has discovered that Francine Reed is a guaranteed cure for the blues. She has a YouTube link to Frannie singing "Wild Women Don't Get The Blues," one of my favorites too.
