Shirley Franklin: One of NPR's Leading Ladies

America's number one mayor, Atlanta's own Shirley Franklin, is one of NPR's "Leading Ladies." This is just the latest honor for perhaps the best current public official in Georgial. She is NPR's 4th featured lady joining such luminaries as Carol Moseley Braun, Geraldine Ferraro, and Debbie Walsh.

Make sure and listen to her interview.

I also noticed that Hostile Takover author Dave Sirota is on NPR today.

Also, catch Gregory Feifer's look into "What Happened to Russia's Democracy?" In light of so many strange deaths and murders involving critics of Putin, we need to be paying attention to what is going on with a country that the Bush administration considers an ally.

So flip the dial to NPR and turn it up!

Huge Shirley fan -- HUGE.

Me too! I hope we can change her mind about seeking higher office. The rest of the state could use a little of what she did for ATL in a few areas.
