So there I was, trying to find the words to describe this weekend in Cooperstown, N.Y., to encapsulate what it meant to watch Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Bobby Cox inducted into the Hall of Fame and validate what we in Atlanta rubbed our eyes and thought we saw for 14 straight years.

Robb Pitts, who missed toppling Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves by only 303 votes in a Democratic primary contest that churned out 45,000 ballots, has filed a lawsuit challenging his loss.
Pitts alleges that a “bad” ballot description of the race as “Fulton County Commissioner From District No. 7 At Large” – with no mention that the seat is for commission chairman – sowed enough confusion among voters to skew the election.
Read the lawsuit here:
Pitts is asking a Fulton County Superior Court judge to declare the election invalid, and that a second election be held concurrent with July 22 runoff elections – or at a later date.
