Gov. Sonny Perdue was here today for the opening of the new Atlantic Southern Bank headquarters.
I'd never heard anyone pray for a bank before, and today's ribbon cutting featured two. But, then, I don't attend a lot of bank openings.
Anyway, I talked to the governor briefly about the speaker's tax reform plan. He didn't say much, except that we've got to be careful with such a major issue, and that he will be "extremely involved" in discussions. A short story is up on the main site, with more coverage to follow in tomorrow's paper.
I got some interesting stuff from Houston County Commissioner Tom McMichael about his coming meeting with the Lt. Gov. on the subject, for instance.
There were an awful lot of local politicians and big-wigs on hand for the bank opening. For example, here the governor, recently elected judge Tripp Self and Middle Georgia Ambulance Service owner Ben Hinson compare ties. I gave the win to Self, because he's wearing a red and black Georgia tie.
Said Hinson: "He beats me on ties every time."
