Morgan: Adversaries salute Shipp

If you ever had one of Bill Shipp's finely honed pens lodged between your shoulder blades, you would never forget it. I write from personal experience and from having worked for a governor who regularly suffered public excoriation at the hands of arguably the most powerful political reporter and commentator in the state's history. In fact, the New Georgia Encyclopedia calls him "one of the country's premier political commentators."

Why did the armadillo cross the road?

"Why did the armadillo cross the road?" is a trick question, if I judge armadillo road crossing skills by what I've seen on the interstate this summer.
