A local political ad last night was getting down on someone for letting the education system in Georgia go to shit. The candidate was talking about how 'on so-and-so's watch Georgia test scores slipped to 49th in the nation... even below Alabama.' WHAT? I mean, has there always been this rivalry between Georgia and Alabama over who can have the least crappy schools, or was this person just relying on a common preconception that education in Alabama is bad? Either way, you gotta love it when someone goes on TV and says "damn, we are even worse than ALABAMA!"
