In 'wow' category, Blake's got a Keith Johnson email up on his disagreement with cutting the fireworks from the Athens-Clarke County budget, and it's full of Johnson's usual, well, ridiculous commentary.

The money quote ...

I asked Keith whether fireworks were more important than affordable housing or any other poverty-related programs the commission kept. He responded, with unusual brevity, “yes.”

Awesome. The local president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, an organization that is committed to human rights with a rich and noble tradition, values fireworks over fighting poverty.

You don't think the money quote is when he mentions communists?

The only thing better than Blake printing this email would be if the paper could scan and post some of the nutball snail mail it gets. Amazing stuff.

Get on and watch the videos of citizen input at the end of the night. It's the Keith Johnson/Richard DeRose Show. You could not make this stuff up.
