There's Gonna Be a Atlanta Press Club Debate on GPB in October!

Que Camera 1.

Just in via email, I've been invited to and will attend the Atlanta Press Club's TV debate on Georgia Public Broadcasting scheduled for 24 OCT 10. It's a long way off and less than two weeks before the general election so I'm pleased as punch about the timing. Maybe one of my opponents will do or say something between now and then to liven up this rather dull race.

Mary still hasn't put anything fresh on her website since 23 JUN 10, but another 4 democrats have looked at her convention speech since Saturday. At that rate about another 120 viewers are waiting in the wings. That's not gonna put her over the top this fall. Ratchet it up democrats.

The APC also hit me up with a questionnaire so they could do a little show prep. It's a standard 3 bullet, 40 character limit self authored sound bite type thing and I had a pretty good time with it so it's reproduced below for your reading enjoyment:
