If you hated the the 2014 Braves, you might love the 2014 World Series. The Braves drove us to distraction and brought “termination” to Frank Wren, the general manager who built them, by swinging big, missing big and spitting the bit in September.

12:56 p.m. — The jury that is in it’s 11th day of deliberations in the corruption trial of suspended DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis took it’s hour-long break of lunch, still unable to agree on verdicts for any of the 13 charges against him.
MACON — Michelle Nunn and David Perdue shared the stage together Thursday for the first time in their general election battle for the U.S. Senate, and both were itching for a fight.
But while Nunn, the Democratic hopeful, targeted Perdue, the Republican candidate focused his fire on President Barack Obama.
The forum, at the Marriott City Center here, was sponsored by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, and the questions from the audience reflected Chamber members’ interests.
Moderated by former WSB-TV anchor John Pruitt, topics covered healthcare, immigration, transportation and the military.
On nearly every topic, Nunn turned her answer toward Perdue, slamming him for “embracing” gridlock and conflict in Washington rather than working for solutions. Perdue, meanwhile, might not have even uttered Nunn’s name, and instead was focused sharply on Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.
“I’ve been very clear about my priorities this entire campaign,” Perdue said, adding that Obamacare must be repealed. “We have to get serious about this outrageous spending.”
Nunn, however, even in her opening statement, questioned Perdue’s strategy.
She said Georgia should elect her to “send someone to Washington to focus on partnership and getting things done. That’s not what I’ve heard from David.”
