1. GOP front-runner Mitt Romney sweeps into Atlanta Wednesday for a campaign rally at a tile store in Midtown. Hundreds of the Republican faithful show up to shop for tile while clapping insincerely.

2. CNN suspends round-headed commentator Roland Martin for tweeting like an obnoxious straight guy while watching the Super Bowl. Obnoxious straight guys have a new bro to follow.

3. Georgia expects today for the Feds to let it ignore No Child Left Behind. Atlanta parents worried their kids will get redistricted into a crappier school are too busy to notice.
