    in the aftermath of the Boston bombing. I will always bring that up when Northerners (I am one, too but I live in Georgia now) turn up their noses at the "southern racists", like the South has a monopoly on such behavior.

    The politics are nuts here, but day to day, I see plenty of kindness and tolerance. There is essentially two Georgia's. Unfortunately, one side has a monopoly on the state level, but if you look at the 2012 election results, you will see we are right behind North Carolina in terms of being a swing state. A lot of immigrants have come here, and when they are voting in higher numbers, you'll see a change.

    The gun law sucks, but people throwing a temper tantrum, and vowing to never come here is dumb. They're hurting good people as well as bad.
