The good Mullis introduced the bill in the Senate. http://www.legis.ga.gov/legislation/en-US/Display/20112012/SB/374 While you are at it you might want to check out SR 781.

I miss having the ability to post on stories. It also gives locals a chance to talk about local stories. That is one thing I don't like about the ajc. At least they have blog sections like Galloway where one can comment. Comments can also give reporters inspiration to look at things in a different angle or ideas for new stories. I'll still keep my subscription but am disappointed.

Next they will ban Dante's Divine Comedy because it is two descriptive. Once again Dade's Vocal So-Called "Moral" Minority wins against the silent majority.

Looking forward to this. Does he have a website or contact info?

That's a little far over the mountain to drive for Dade residents. Or maybe people have just decided to vote no. Either way looks like they are going to have to do a full court press.

It was not in his contract to not sing the song. So he shows up and then they tell him don't sing it. This is a normal song in his set list. So what would you do? This is one of his most popular songs. A normal encore song. The crowd that was not out of control was chanting for the song. I was there. SO he could have risked not getting paid but played the song anyways. I say good for him. Not just because I am a fan but that was unprofessional. You don't come to an artist who has rehearsed a set, with his band, and tell him no way. This would be like telling a play to cut out scene 3 because one of our patrons does not like it. At least riverbend put it in Kid Rock's contract. Guess what there was no fan outrage over that.

@paying attention. The song is a normal song Smith plays at his concerts. If they didn't want him to play the song, they should have put it in the contract and inform the fans they were not going to allow the song. They did allow the prior band to play a song about mixing whiskey and prescription drugs. So if the business is going to censor musicians it should be known to their patrons that they will do so and not hire for example Kid Rock to play Disney songs and not tell concert goers they are only going to hear the politically correct songs because the King is in town.

@paying attention If you would listen to the lyrics of F the POPO you will see it is not about hating the police but about hating corruption of power. The song is clear that we should respect the police, firefighters and those that defend our freedoms. I was there. For them to pull the plug was unacceptable. Even when I was a commissioner we didn't pull the plug on a citizen when they were talking in peaceful protest. So why should he be any different. This song is about cops harassing his wife at a road block. He said something like let us got home and got arrested. If you ever saw Corey you would say what a geek, but the man can write. I would encourage you to listen to his many albums and you will too fall in love with him. His is a master of prose and speaks to the soul. Most of his songs are about love.

Last night they pulled the plug on Corey Smith. He was on stage for the encore. He explained for ten minutes that the song was about the three cops that arrested him in Jefferson, GA. He started to sing F*** the POPO and they pulled the plug. It was alright for the earlier band to sing a song about mixing wiskey and aderal but they were overly sensitive and were scared that the police would get offended there I guess. I can't believe they censored one of Corey Smiths favorite songs. Don't know if I will ever go back to Track 29 ever again unless they come out with an apology and make a statement that they will never censor a band ever again.

This is another reason to be against zoning. Another story of people trying to tell you what you can and can't do with your property.
