White People’s Problems – Metro SpiritMetro Spirit

Over the weekend, the Metro Spirit released a well-written and impeccably researched article by Stacy Eidson (“Picking Up the Tab”) concerning the Columbia County Commission’s rather pricey choice of Savannah as the location for an April get together of commissioners and department heads to discuss “advance planning” for all things municipal.

As we saw, […]
