One of the issues I wrote about on Feb. 22 was House Speaker Glenn Richardson's ever evolving tax plan. The GREAT Plan, an acronym that stood for Georgia's Repeal of Every Ad Valorem Tax, originally started out as a proposal that eliminated every property tax, from the vehicle ad valorem tax to local property taxes, and would have also eliminated some sales tax exemptions on services. Schools systems and local governments would have received subsidies from the state to fund operations and projects.

Nearing the end of Christ's life before his crucifixion, he spoke to his disciples and told them he would not be with them much longer.
