If Glenn Richardson Isn’t Scary Enough For You Try This:

The efforts to release Genarlo Wilson remain a hot topic in the Georgia blogosphere. One voice we have not heard from yet here at the carnival is Billy Merck at The Georgia Law Blog. His post Genarlo Wilson Case Is Not "National Cause" has already drawn some fiery comments. Let Billy know what you think?
Celebrating the Fourth
Belle-Ah over at Southern Somedays posted a series of pictures giving evidence that patriotism is alive and well in small town Georgia. Check out July and Patriotism, Preparing to Celebrate, Decked Out and Ready to Shout, Dressed Out For the Fourth. I had to include all of her pictures because they represent the Fourth so well.
Ellie Bee at What Now? weighs in with some opinions in her post Happy Fourth of July
Peach Pod from Peaches and Purls shows us how her family celebrated yesterday.
Chicken Fat went to the parade in Marietta, and shares his pictures.
Go congratulate Dogwood Girl. She says, "I did it! I ran the Peachtree."
Of course, I’m almost certain everyone had some form of barbecue Wednesday. If this next post is really true the Georgia Department of Education needs to have grill installed in every classroom….Barbeque and Brains. Who knew? Savannah Red clues us in.
…and let’s not forget The Town That Forgot the Fouth of July from History Is Elementary.
…And the State of Our Country on Its Birthday?
Welcome to George W. Bush's America says Todd at Article of Faith.
The Beef Jerky Blog advises, “Living in Fayetteville, Georgia is really just ok, so travel is a must….7 Days of Disney, The Series provides a recap of the experience and some great dos and don’ts.
Thinking of driving in Atlanta? You need to read Otter’s post How to Drive in ATL over at Grasping for the Wind. Here’s a small hint regarding what’s waiting for you over there:
Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Atlanta has its own version of traffic rules For example, cars or trucks with the loudest muffler go first at a four-way stop; the trucks with the biggest tires go second. However, in Roswell & Alpharetta, SUV-driving, cell phone-talking moms ALWAYS have the right of way.
Jefferson over at Red Clay Commerce wrote about Chick-Fil-A. Did you know the company is 40 years old?
Being the Best YOU
Four Questions For Your Life from Three Sticks is an interesting post that blends the television show Babylon 5 with questions that will determine the quality and outcome of your life.
Buzz over at The Buzz Blog provides a little culture to the carnival with a video clip of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in Suwanee.
Music Business Entrepreneurship: Eulogy for James Brown is from Noric Dilanchian who states, “On writing this homage to James Brown I came to appreciate how many music greats were born or raised in Georgia. It was then I was reminded of how important local culture is despite the urge we have to also connect wider, e.g. nationally or globally.”
Atlanta Tops Yet Another Poll
How much do you spend on shoes? Sara over at Going Through the Motions asks Who Are These Women? Sara, I certainly don't know them, but if any of them have any shoes in my size they want to give away....
Life of a Resident Alien asks Buying a New Construction Home? Do You Need a Lawyer?
Living in a Techie World and Blogging
If you haven’t been by Confessions of a Political Junkie then you haven’t been subjected to all five…count ‘em….five (as of yesterday) posts about Erick’s new iphone. The showoff!…….Just kidding. Last February I got nice large ring from my husband and posted thirteen facts about why I liked it over at History Is Elementary. Who can blame Erick......
Do you ever wish more people could see a particular post? The Basic Accounting Blog shares that article syndication is a very simple process where one gets to share their article among various online sites which helps to impart knowledge through the web. Sound interesting? Check out Article Syndication: The Sky Is the Limit So Explore and Aim for the Sky
Amy’s from Amy’s Random Thoughts is bored. She wants you to tell her about an interesting, entertaining site to read.
Want to see a great rant? 30plusteacher at Best Practices in Education posted a video of a teacher giving the answer to the question What Do Teachers Make? It’s about time an educator got a backbone. More of my colleages need to speak the truth about our profession.
The next edition of the carnival will be found here two weeks from today. Posts can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the handy submission form.
Thanks for your continued support of the Georgia Carnival!
