happy CoffeeIt’s Friday already (or finally, depending on your week).

You’ve got questions? Creative Loafing has answers.

Party! Party! Party!

Amsterdam sounds like fun.  But Vermont is closer.

Maybe Jeopardy wins should be a Senatorial requirement?

Oops, I was all excited about curtains and lampshades.

Time is running out.  Vote today!

It’s come to my attention that some have not yet seen this and this.  Just watch them.  You’ll thank me.

What’s on the docket for your weekend?

    I just pre-ordered two copies of Rep. John Lewis and Andrew Aydin’s exciting new graphic novel called March Book 1.

    Yes I know Amazon is the evil empire, but I currently don’t have a relationship with a local comic book store, so it was easiest.

    City Councilman Alex Wan (party pooper) draws an opponent, and if Mr Morrison isn’t a doozy!

    Morrison is not afraid of a fight. As an owner of several successful adult businesses that cater to LGBT and straight customers in metro Atlanta and a gay club opened last year in Miami, he has a permanent bulls-eye painted on his back and is accustomed to city officials and residents living near his clubs wanting to shut down his stores. Going to court to fight to keep his businesses open is part of the job. In the mid 1990s he was arrested in Atlanta on obscenity charges and police raided his stores several times. Eventually he helped strike down the state’s obscenity law in a time known by some as the “dildo wars.”

    But he also ran into legal issues and in February 2005, Morrison was convicted of tax evasion and spent nearly three years in a federal prison. Interestingly, he served time
    with former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell, who instigated police raids of Morrison’s shops. Campbell was also found guilty of tax evasion, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    “I may not be electable, but a vote for me is a vote against Alex Wan,” Morrison said.

    Morrison said he is prepared to spend $150,000 in this election to try to defeat Wan.
