Homophobia is Alive and Well
J. Daniel Young A recent emergency meeting at the Ben Hill County Board of Education is a stark reminder that homophobia is alive and well in South Georgia.

Tell me, why do I live here again?
“These days, it’s not just my family’s craziness that has me questioning my reason for sticking around.”

When I explained that Trump only signed things the way my coworker was accusing Biden, he couldn’t respond. I pressed him further, asking what did Trump actually…
The Downfall of Democracy
People in Fitzgerald, Georgia still don’t know that these people lost their elections. This isn’t the only one of these billboards that are still erected. One is in town, prominently displayed.
