Former state legislator Henrietta Canty remembers well the times that white insurance salesmen would canvas black neighborhoods peddling "industrial life policies" — policies with face values of $1,000 or less that were in-tended to cover the cost of burial and little, if anything, else.

Terry Mulholland's best season in the majors was 1991. John Burkett was let go by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in spring training. By the Devil Rays, for heaven's sake.

The letter was intriguing enough by itself. Under the once-familiar logo of ACT-UP Atlanta ran a full-page missive charging that the organization's name — long synonymous with no-holds-barred "silence = death" AIDS activism — has been usurped by individuals whose goals are exactly opposite those of the original members. The letter, signed by 30 members of the original ACT-UP... | more...

In its 22-year history of advocating for marijuana decriminalization, the Atlanta-based Coalition for the Abolition of Marijuana Prohibition has often spent as much time fighting City Hall over access to public parks for its annual Great Atlanta Pot Festival as it has working to educate the public about the benefits of pot.

If you can't build a Home Depot between a freeway and a warehouse district on the site of a dilapidated hotel where a corpse was found, where can you build it?

Clyde Aikens, 47 years old, has lived in the eastside community of Scottdale since birth — and he wants to stay. With older neighborhoods inside the Perimeter booming, that may be tough. But a proposed change in DeKalb County's zoning rules may make it easier for Aikens and his neighbors to keep their homes, and for their hometown to keep its working-class character.
