Attorney General Jeff Sessions January 4th memo regarding marijuana enforcement is historic... and it should promptly be consigned to the dustbin of history. Mr. Session’s very name is a history lesson. Like his father and grandfather, he was named after Jefferson Davis, the first and only president of the Confederacy and P.G.T. Beauregard, the first prominent general of the Confederate Army. These were the men who lead the people of Alabama in their desire and purpose to join the “slave-holding

SMYRNA, Ga. -- A Cobb County police officer says he was forced to shoot an aggressive dog, but the animal's owner insists police are painting the wrong picture of his pet.
"There was no sense in it," said Robby King, the dog's owner. "They didn't have to shoot him. He was a big baby."
